Folklore tells us that mermaids somethimes called sirens were natural beings who, like fairies, had magical powers. They loved music and often sang. Mermaids were mortal beings that had no souls.
The Nautical Mermaid Long Sleeve UV Shirt was inspired by vintage nautical tattoo designs from the late 19th & early 20th centuries. Life at sea was tough, and nary a sailor or seaman would travel the seven seas without collecting a few "souvenirs" of their rough and tumble lives. These "souvenirs" often came in the form of tattoos that recorded their travels and experiences around the world. Weaving themes of maritime folklore, mythological beings, and nautical elements into tattoo artwork was a common practice at the time, and that's how we came up with the design for this shirt.
The central figure is a mermaid (or siren) posing alluringly in front of a tranquil sea, upon which a clipper ship sails in the distance. She calls to the ship on the wind, luring its occupants in for a closer look — perhaps to their certain doom. The entire scene is enclosed within the shape of a ship wheel, and the ship wheel is bisected by an anchor. "Listen to the siren song of the sea" is written within the rim of the ship wheel, and our motto and company name are inscribed in classic, tattoo-style lettering on banners throughout the artwork. The entire look of the piece is an homage to classic nautical tattoos from days past, and even though this design is drawn in a style that would have been popular at the time, it has a look that remains timeless.
Since our headquarters are in sunny Florida, we know all about the ups and downs of life in the sun. That's why our long sleeve sun shirts are made with a special, Skin Cancer Foundation recommended, UPF 50+ sun protection material that helps block out 98% of harmful UV rays. These rays are strongest from mid-morning to mid-day (prime fishing time in our books), so don't let them get in the way of your day; protect your skin and enjoy your time outside!
Stay cool and dry with the help of PURE-tech moisture-wicking technology! Never again will you feel trapped by your own sweat or uncomfortable in the heat again. This beneficial fabric enhancement allows the shirt to maximize absorbency and dry rapidly. The process is simple; when your core begins to sweat, the fabric will quickly wick moisture away from your body and leave you feeling cooler and dryer longer than you would in a normal shirt.
Say good-bye to foul-smelling sweat odors! When your body sweats, bacteria on your skin starts to consume the nutrients in your sweat, which then causes an odor to be released. With M-Shield zinc-based technology, the growth rate of odor-causing bacteria is significantly reduced, leaving your shirt smelling fresher longer. This technology also acts as a defense mechanism to help fight off mold and mildew, making it perfect for activities around water.
