Capitano T-Shirt – Oreo Milkshake
Here at TRiCKETT we flipping love t-shirts. They form a major part of our sartorial diet and although we have many, we are never truly happy. There are t-shirts that are cheap, some expensive and some in the middle. Many contain things we like and dislike, so rather than be upset we did something about it… we made our own.
The Capitano t-shirts are inspired by the great football captains and the wearing of captains armbands. We always thought that the shirts from the ’60s and ’70s always looked really great and aesthetically very clean. We were also inspired by the way Cannavaro wore his shirt when lifting the World Cup in 2006, he just seemed to wear the jersey with an effortless elegance.
We also wanted to bring the fit and details right up to date so here is what we came up with *inhales*. The t-shirt is made from our own 100% organic cotton jersey, which is a mixture of blacks, white, greys and a few other bits to create a grey marl / oreo milkshake colour and it is made in Leicestershire. The shirt features a ‘captain’s” armband on the left arm so you can always been like a midfield general wherever you are. The length of the t-shirt isn’t a modern skirt and it isn’t a crop top, just the perfect length for all occasions. There are side splits for a little extra articulation at the hips, which is also reinforced that you don’t rip it. The neck is a high bound neck, non of that weird rib stuff for us. The main body of the t-shirt is flat lock 4 needle stitched for extra security and we think it looks nice. Oh and the t-shirt is made in Lancashire by the best t-shirt manufacturer in Europe.
So as you can see not your average t-shirt, but we don’t do average around here. Yep, it is a little bit more expensive than your average t-shirt, but we believe that the basics are worth paying a little more for.
