Fabric/ Jersey Lomellina 3D JL Couture, 90% Polyamide, 10% Elastane, with Vinyl transfers. Fabric was made in Italy, and dyed and treated in Sunshine, VIC.
Characteristics/ This is the second iteration of the Adventure Longsleeve. The first run were produced from locally woven fabric and made by a factory in Thomastown. We wanted to develop the garment to have a greater UPF rating, with a softer and higher quality fabric, so sourced this 3D fabric from Italy, and dyed it locally due to being such a small quantity. We are now working with a new factory in Brunswick for more efficient pattern-cutting and greater garment consistency. The fabric cost and manufacture cost increased significantly, so the price has also been revised.
The long-sleeve is moisture-wicking for sweat management, quick drying and anti-microbial, so you won’t reek of BO all day. The retro-reflective and coloured vinyl details were cut and pressed in a Brunswick East bedroom. The garment has a UPF rating of 50, meaning only 2% of the sun's UV rays reach the skin.
*Unlike the last run, this fabric is perfect, there are no inconsistencies. The fabric is soft AF, and designed to feel really nice on your skin, unlike polyester or some cheaper synthetic alternative. However, this means the fibres are a bit more sensitive than your regular cotton shirt, so you may experience some minor pulls, so be careful with it - ie keep it away from velcro and sharp pointy edges. In saying that, we're chill with pulls here and there for a comfy, functional garment. Let me know if you have any issues!
Fit/ Classic cut long-sleeve for all genders. Small is closer to an XS and large is closer to an XL, to cover a wider range of sizes than the last run, and then length of the M and L has increased a bit due to customer feedback.
Care/ Wash in cold water separately, dry flat in shade. Do not bleach, do not tumble dry.
