  • Will children’s sizing be available?

We don’t have immediate plans to make the apricot t-shirts in children’s sizes

  • Are the new apricot t-shirts the same style and fabric as the new milestone t-shirts?

The new apricot t-shirt is made by British sports brand ‘do’ and uses their super light and comfortable ‘sheer speed’ fabric. This is a high quality garment, featuring a technical poly/elastane fabric and laser cut ventilation. Whilst the apricot and milestone t-shirts are premium quality items, they are not the same style and fabric.

  • Will there be a long-sleeve/vest design?

Possibly! We are working on adding to the apricot range and, subject to demand, hope to have more news over the coming months.

  • Do the UK t-shirts include the UK flag?

No, the new apricot t-shirts do not feature the UK flag.

  • Are the t-shirts available outside of the UK? 

Not currently, but they will be available outside of the UK soon.

  • Why does this one cost more than the previous apricot t-shirt?

Whilst £33 is a slight increase on the previous retail price, this reflects higher wholesale costs now than when we created the previous range four years ago in 2015; it’s a superior quality fabric; includes personalisation and includes free international shipping.
