The softness of bamboo viscose


These undershirts are made from super-soft bamboo viscose. This is a man made fibre but with a natural base, originating from wood, in this case the fast growing bamboo.

Softer than Cotton


Originally developed as artificial silk, viscose is soft to the touch and cool on the skin. These qualities make viscose is an ideal fabric for underwear which is why we use it in our vests and undershirts.

Sweat Absorbing


The cellulose molecules which make up the viscose filaments are hydrophilic, meaning they attract water. Pores in the fibre allow moister from your sweat to be absorbed into the fibre itself, keeping it away from your body and your shirt.

Body Contoured


The thermal and sweat absorbing properties work best when in contact with your skin, so we design them to be body contouring, but not tight. These technical details are what make our vests and undershirts into technical base layers.

A word about price - £29 each


Robert Owen undershirts start at £29, and we completely understand if you scoff at the price. If you already have vests or undershirts that work for you and they cost £15 for a pack of two, why would you spend nearly twice that on one shirt? It's solid logic, and if that is how you feel, Robert Owen is not the brand for you.

If, however, you are looking to get the most out of your clothes and feel your best in your dress shirt then our range is worth a look. We use high quality fabrics, the design is unique to our label (you won't find these shirts anywhere else) and these undershirts have been specifically designed as a skin friendly base layer for everyday all-day.
