The Hear The C T-shirt

The Hear The C T-shirt

Top quality t-shirt and printing quality, with a paired sticker for free.

The joke is simple. It plays with the double meaning of the word “shell”, the fact that C is the core language of UNIX – along with Assembly – as well as the words “C” and “sea” producing the same sound in English. We fell in love so much with this joke, that we hired the best lettering artist we could find and made him work with it.

More about the design

The result came out fabulous and everyone that got in touch with the t-shirt asked for one to wear everyday, starting from ourselves, our models and our friends. We love this design also because it expresses a lot of what the world of UNIX and software passionates is about, with the humour, those words that only some can understand, the cleverness and the layered meanings that all of us feel united by, perceive as common values.

The t-shirt model

We literally tried tens of different models before settling on this one. We like thin necks, great texture and precise sewing. Colors must be bright without looking fake, the texture must be soft but not too heavy. Finally, style can't be that of the '60s, we care about body and sleeves of the right length, fit that's not too large nor too thin, neck of the right thickness.

Corrosion print: our new premium printing technique

When the guys at the small printing factory near Milan, Italy, told us about this new printing technique they were experimenting, in a blink, we fell desperately intrigued. We couldn't resist.

Normally, when printing on a t-shirt, you add a layer of ink on top of the fabric. This creates a plastic film which you try to keep as thin as possible, but is still there.

Corrosion printing is based on a completely different concept. Instead of *adding* ink, you remove the dye from the cotton (which needs to be 100% pure and high quality) and surface the original color of the cotton, which is – depending on *that* cotton – a lighter or stronger shade of browny white. To that area, then, you add the color that you want, which in this case is white.

The result is a t-shirt that feels incredibly soft, has no rigid layers that could make it uncomfortable and resists unaltered to an incredible amount of washes.

As we do with all of our products, all our efforts are dedicated to delivery you an outstanding product that shines in your wardrobe. We're sure you'll enjoy the result :)

Important: While this is valid for the Hear The C black T-shirt, the white version is instead printed with our standard serigraphy process.

The best t-shirt model you can find, top printing quality and a paired sticker for free

Continuing on our efforts to make you a happier UNIX lover, this time we're introducing a new kind of t-shirt with a special roll sleeve, which makes this t-shirt look unique and distinctive. The t-shirt is 100% certified organic cotton at 150g/m2, with roll sleeve and narrow neck rib. The fit is normal and falls softly on the shoulder, compared to other models (like the one we use for the Ultimate Tux T-shirt), that have more rigid sewing on the shoulder.

The t-shirt print

There are many ways for transferring a design onto a t-shirt, but when you want quality and durability serigraphy is the choice. This technique uses a frame with actual liquid paint being poured on it. The result looks and feels great and lasts forever.

The texture

The t-shirts are made from extra-soft peached-cotton at 150g/m2 (not too heavy, not too light), nothing in common with many plastic-bag t-shirts you can find on the market.

A free sticker with every t-shirt

Every t-shirt comes with a free sticker with the same design and color as the T-shirt. We couldn't resist: wearing the Hear The C t-shirt is already nice, but wearing it with a paired sticker on the laptop feels really like another level :P
