Meet the Plain White T-Shirt That's Waterproof and Stain-Resistant

It's the only plain white tee you'll ever need.

Threadsmiths Hydrophobic Shirt

According to most women, the plain white t-shirt is about the sexiest thing a man could wear outside of his body. Not counting a baby or puppy, which might get you slightly better results, although at a much greater cost (especially if you have no need for either).

The problem is, one of the things that repels women faster than brown teeth is a big stain on your white shirt. If you’re like us, when you’re wearing your lady-eater shirt, you have to plan out a first date so that it doesn’t include spaghetti, ice cream, or baby back ribs. But what if it didn’t have to be that way?

Well guess what? It doesn’t.

Introducing one of the best 100 percent cotton white t-shirts we’ve had the privilege to test all year; the Threadsmiths Hydrophobic shirt. It is soft, crisp, lightweight, stylish, incredibly white… and stays that way thanks to some technology the Threadsmiths team calls… “water fearing” nanotechnology.

So we asked Threadsmiths about it:

Urbasm: Is there a particular story that spawned the idea behind the shirt?Threadsmiths: One of our founders noticed a duck on a lake who’s feathers remained dry and thought it was amazing.

Urbasm: In laymen terms, what is the magic behind the technology?Threadsmiths: The t-shirts works by creating microscopic nanoparticles in the every fiber of the cotton, which creates a barrier from liquid.

Urbasm: And you can wash it as normal and it will maintain this liquid barrier?
Threadsmiths: Yes.

Urbasm: But you do have to tumble dry every three washes to reactivate it, correct? How does that work?
Threadsmiths: Yes, a tumble dry reactivates it by spreading out the nanoparticles and making them more raised.

We can tell you from experience that this shirt is absolutely amazing with the types of liquids it can repel. We doused it with coffee, wine, ketchup, tomato sauce and sports drinks… and it all just washed right off with a spray from a water bottle.

We should mention that the longevity of its barrier should have a lifetime of about 50 washes, which we calculate to be enough to get us through over two years worth of first and third dates (you can pretty much wear what you want after that).

Some have even said this shirt is so good—it might even get you groped by a beautiful stranger.

We put that theory to the test:
