A perfectly useless afternoon t-shirt
This vibrant unisex t-shirt was designed by Kristof Devos and is inspired by his watch design, which you can see here.
Kristof explains his inspiration for the design:
"Ironically, it took time to change the way I look at time. A couple of years ago, I read a quote by a Chinese writer, translator, linguist and philosopher Lin Yutang that I’ve kept close to my heart ever since:
'If you can spend a perfectly useless afternoon in a perfectly useless manner, you have learnt how to live'.
So when designing the watch, I took that quote as a starting point.
The quote by Lin Yutang taught me the value of doing nothing at all every once in a while.
One of the ways I love wasting time is by floating around, with my eyes closed, letting the water be my guide."

Shipping guide for t-shirts:
All t-shirts on our website are now printed and shipped by an external supplier inside the United States. This means that if you place an order for both a watch and a t-shirt, they will be shipped separately.
Our supplier uses a tracked service for all shipments and this usually takes a little longer than our watches. You can see an estimated timescale when you input your address at the checkout.
During busy sale periods dispatch may take a little longer (this is quite rare). These delivery times are a guide based on the Fedex and Royal Mail terms of service, products may, in some unusual cases take longer to arrive. If this happens, please get in touch.
