On first receiving the T-shirt.
“I have had the T shirt from around 14-15 years of age. I remember very clearly, going into my father’s bedroom and complaining of the cold in the morning. He smiled at me and said that he had this T-Shirt/vest that was super warm and he opened the storage drawer underneath the bed and pulled this vest. I remember the appearance of this vest, because it was the only one with this pattern. All his others were the fish net kind or just plain.”
“He said “try this on – it is really great quality and super warm!” I didn’t look at what make it was, I was at the age where I wasn’t interested in this kind of thing. After I put it on he continued to say “You will see, it’s super warm!”. He has always been long winded with the things that he admires.”
On Mr. Sum snr’s first purchase of the T-shirt.
“Recently, I asked him where he bought the t-shirt… he said he bought it after Christmas in Swindon – I am surprised he still remembers as it is around 20 years old now, which means he must have bought it about 3-4 years before he gave it to me. He said he bought it because he could instantly feel the quality.”
