T shirts polyester viscous



Seamless tubular T shirts often worn as an extra layer in winter - an alternative to wearing thick thermals alone. The shirts are an unbleached, slighlty off-white colour called Ecru, and look good worn on their own but are too easy to put in the hot whites wash or tumble dry by-mistake, after which the texture becomes less smooth and slighty tufted.

These dry much more easily than cotton - there's no need to tumble-dry.

They come in vintage 1960s cellophane bags with a "Guardian" logo on them.

Manchester Hosiery was a manufacturer of tubular T shirts and womens undwear in Hinkley. After selling these T shirts they went into liquidation several times under the ownership of a Hong Kong yarn manufacturer, which still has a sales office and warehouse in the town for selling similar clothes, and keeps-up some of the trademarks. The main customer was M Holt of Manchester, a cash and carry wholesaler that closed when the owners retired, for lack of a buyer who wanted to hold so much stock or depend on UK short-run manufacturing.

Check your size by measuring a T-shirt that fits you, flat, sleeve-to-sleeve.
Chest measurement is a circumference - double the flat measurement:
46cm or 18" flat = 36" chest circumference (" is shorthand for inches)
48cm or 19" flat = 38" T shirt size
51cm or 20" flat = 40" T shirt size
53cm or 21" flat = 42" T shirt size
56cm or 22" flat = 44" T shirt size
Thermal T shirts are sold for wearing more tightly, as a base layer, so the S / M / L labels are one size smaller than the ones for cotton T shirts .
