Genres, grunge, prog rock, Seattle, etc., for the most part I think labels are rubbish. Ray Charles expressed the problem with labels and so called genres well - he had it there were two types of music: Good music and bad music. Every band that has ever really caught and held my enthusiasm has had the discipline of a good drummer. Soundgarden founded in Seattle in 1984 by their drummer and lead singer Chris Cornell are a good example. Cornell can drum and all those who came after him on the drums could do so as well. Hard, raw, loud, spontaneous and it swings. Did I give a damn about the name? Nah but I was interested to learn from whence it came when our Soundgarden shirt was delivered today. Soundgarden do not sound like wind chimes to me but that is apparently what inspired the choice of name. The shirt shows the chimes in question from the park in Seattle where they reside. Celebrate a great band and an inspiring public space, wear our Soundgarden t shirt.

Our t-shirts are unique for being wholly made with CoolMax freshFX. CoolMax is a patented fibre designed to wick perspiration and accelerate moisture evaporation, keeping wearers cooler and drier. This wicking feature of the fabric is made possible by micro channels engineered into the profile of and surface of the fibre. These channels are cleverly dimensioned to exploit the surface tension and capillary action of water. Being physical properties of the fibre, these channels endure and do not significantly diminish with wear or washing.

Antimicrobial (freshFX) treatment stops the propagation of odour producing bacteria. This is achieved by embedding silver salt crystals into the structure of the fibre. FreshFX treatment like the wicking is permanent and does not leach out with everyday use. These characteristics ensure the shirts remain cool, dry and odour free regardless of what you might do in them. Performance of the fabric is guaranteed through a certified and monitored manufacturing process.
