When is an original not an original?

When after 5 years of business you do a rebrand, put your new sexy logo on some super soft organic short sleeve t-shirts and hope everyone thinks you always looked like this.

So welcome to 'The Original'. It's not really an original, but it is a rather good organic short sleeve t-shirt.

A mid-weight light blue tee for men, made from 100% ethically sourced certified organic cotton. Then screen printed by hand by our friends Steve & Craig at their studio in Bath.

The fit here is just off the shoulder and pretty regular - think classic t-shirt and you're there. If you're looking for a more slim fit, take the size down and it'll be spot on, the length will still be fine.

 

  • Certified & combed organic cotton in our mid-weight 180gsm fabric

  • 1x1 rib collar for durability

  • Fabric sealed neck seam for superior comfort

  • Sleeve hem and bottom hem with narrow double topstitch for durability

  • OEKO-TEX Standard 100, tested and passed for harmful chemicals

  • Damn soft and damn nice

This organic cotton T-Shirt was manufactured in Bangladesh. At one of the following 4 Fair Wear Foundation audited factories used by our supplier, Stanley/Stella:

- Ahsan Composite, Bangladesh

- Interstoff Apparels, Bangladesh

- DIRD Composite Textile, Bangladesh

- Aus Bangla, Bangladesh

Stanley/Stella are leaders in wholesale and bespoke garment manufacturing and have a 'Leader' rating with the Fair Wear Foundation.

Screen printed by hand by our friends Steve & Craig over at Memory Screen Printers in Bath, UK.

Fit

Classic fit - Our classic regular fit tee that's a touch oversized and sits just off the shoulders.

If you're in-between sizes, reviews from past customers lean towards taking the size down for the best fit, the length will still be all good.

If it helps, our Co-founder Sam has a 39" chest, is 6ft and a slim-ish build. He wears a Medium day to day for a relaxed vibe and wears a Small when he wants a smarter look.

Please note for our Men's range we use the U.S sizes printed on our labels, rather than the E.U. ones also shown.

  1. Only wash if it needs it - Cheeky sniff test all the way!

  2. Wash inside out on a 30'c wash to keep our planet cool.

  3. Where possible, air dry - if you do have to tumble dry DW all our organic cotton is preshrunk so it'll come out as good as new.

  4. Do the flatten out and a little re-shape deal after each wash, just like your Mum would.

  5. Wear it lots and lots.

  6. Love it and it will love you.

1. This style is PETA-approved Vegan, ensuring no animals were used or tested on for ingredients, formulations, or the finished product.

2. This style is made from 100% organic cotton. This promotes farming practices that conserve soil, diversify crops, increase bio-diversity and avoids all synthetic pesticides and fertilisers.

3. The organic cotton grown for this style is watered using rain for about 80% of its water needs. Compared to regular cotton, this saves the equivalent of over 2 years worth of drinking water for one person.

4. Our ethical suppliers are Fair Wear Foundation members with a rating of 'Leader'. This ensures the development of garment worker rights and conditions alongside regular third party auditing.

5. For the past 3 years, every purchase made with Goose Studios protects 5 mature rainforest trees thanks to our partnership with TR1BE and Rainforest Trust.

1. Non-renewable energy powers the transport for this style from Asia to the UK. Unsurprisingly both air and sea freight are fairly terrible for emissions.

Any advice on how to reduce our impact from transport would be amazing! Email us at info@goosestudios.co.uk

2. The washing instructions label is recycled polyester. Which is better than normal polyester, but still polyester. Classic good cop/bad cop scenario.

Only there's another organic cotton cop in the mix being like, 'you should just use organic cotton'. That cop has a point.

3. The factories making this style pay at least the minimum wage and offer considerable employee benefits - but don't yet all pay the living wage.

The Fair Wear Foundation are working with our suppliers to constantly improve this situation.

Great product and honest customer service. That's our promise to you. Check out what verified customers have to say about the clothes they bought, and the customer service they received.

Very impressed by the quality of these t-shirts - I feel they will serve me well for a long time. Also the service receive from the company was top notch, as I had to exchange sizes, which was dealt with super quick and in a very friendly manner!

Wearing the jumper as I write this review. It’s exactly what I was after, a simple and timeless style with interesting accents. It doesn’t call attention to itself but it’s far from boring. It feels high quality and it’s a great feeling to know it’s organic cotton and that there’s no needless, destructive packaging included.
