Remember when 100% cotton was the golden standard for everyday clothing? Not that there’s anything wrong with cotton… but hey, it’s human nature to look for better solutions, right? Meet Seadon, a series of high-performance tees made for everyday wearing. Designed to be more breathable, durable, comfortable, temperature-regulating, moisture-wicking, and fast-drying than the standard cotton tee, Seadon’s everyday tee shirts come made from a mix of innovative fibers. From comfortable merino wool to naturally cooling eucalyptus-based Tencel, and the sustainable and moisture-wicking recycled PET, Seadon’s tees are anything but the status quo cotton tees.
Seadon’s Daily Tees push the boundaries of the understated comfort and utility of your go-to tee shirt. Designed around specific purposes, the tees come in three variants. The Traveller is the perfect base-layer tee shirt, designed for long trips and outdoor use. Made from 70% Merino Wool and 30% Eucalyptus-fiber Tencel, the tees are engineered to be soft and comfortable as they regulate temperature, resist wrinkling, staining, and repel liquids. The Traveller works as a great insulator and can be worn over thick coats and jackets. Conversely, if the sun gets too rough, the tee works well independently too, with a rating of UPF~ 50+ to protect you against harsh sunlight. Designed to be worn over long journeys, the tee can be worn for as long as 7 days before needing to be washed.
For more active lifestyles, the Trailblazer tee gives you the comfort of a fabric that feels comfortable and airy when worn. Made from equal parts RPET and Polygiene (and finished with ‘miDori’ a naturally wicking coating derived from algae oil), Seadon’s Trailblazer tees are perfect for sweating in. The tees naturally stretch to let you move freely, dry faster than traditional clothing, and offer high breathability and sun-protection. Made from a yarn that’s derived from recycled plastic, these tees last much longer than traditional clothing, while also being more sustainable and having a lower carbon footprint than your cotton or polyester tee shirt.
Seadon’s third variant proves to be its most popular with ‘best-of-both-worlds’ features. Crafted from a proprietary combination of Bluesign RPET (recycled PET), Polygiene, Eucalyptus Tencel, and with the moisture-wicking miDori coating, the Daymaker gives you the comfort of your favorite tee shirt but upgrades its abilities with durable stitching, moisture-wicking, quick-drying, as well as temperature-regulating features.
Each tee comes in multiple sizes for men and women, sports a variety of colors, and even sleeve lengths. Sporting an evergreen design that’s well-paired with a durable build, comfortable yarn, and a host of features that just make them superior, Seadon’s Daily Tees reinvent the wheel by taking the ubiquitous, classic cotton tee and making it softer, more long-lasting, breathable, stretchable, and the kind of tee your skin will fall in love with. Besides, its ethically-sourced supply chain and bio-degradable packaging will ensure the environment loves your tees too!
