Organic Cotton Long Sleeve Top (Black)
Made with GOTS certified 100% combed organic cotton, these long sleeve tops are soft, comfortable to wear and are perfect for those days when it’s just too cool for a short sleeve t-shirt.
As part of the Earth Positive range, these t-shirts are certified to produce 90% less CO2 emissions than the standard equivelent (see the Environmental section below for details).
My Son normally only wears 100% bamboo, however he is really impressed with Of The Ocean’s bamboo/ cotton mix t-shirts.
I bought the Atlantic grey and the white, and was pleased that they are exactly as shown in the photographs.
I had a glitch checking out, PayPal was on the Fritz, and hadn’t noticed that the checkout hadn’t gone through because I was in a Christmas shopping frenzy
Of the oceans contacted me via email just to check that I had noticed that check our hadn’t actually gone through, for which I am very grateful as I had just ticked it off my list and moved on to the next shop.
Once I had checked out properly they dispatched really quickly and I managed to get them in plenty of time for Christmas.
I have passed the details onto my son so he can shop there directly, although I think I will pop back myself to peruse what interesting things they have for his birthday.”, TG
Reply:Thanks for the review Tina, we’re really glad you like our product.
We’re sorry you had to wait for the delivery, we’ll try and make the factory shutdown period clearer on the website next year. Thnaks again for your feedback 🙂
To get the perfect fit, we recommend:
- Look in your wardrobe for a similar piece of clothing – one where you’re happy with the fit.
- Lay it down flat and take the measurements shown in the diagram above.
- Compare those measurements with our size guide.
The actual measurements of a “large” hoodie, or a “medium” t-shirt, can vary significantly between different manufacturers – this method helps you get the right fit first time.
Caring for your garment
A big chunk of the environmental impact a garment has occurs once it’s in your hands. These guidelines not only ensure that your garment will last, but also help to keep the planet cool.
- Only wash when it really needs it. This saves energy, water, your time and extends its life.
- When it’s ready for a wash, turn it inside out. This reduces the abrasion on the outside of the garment, and helps it to keep looking crisp for longer.
- Wash at 30 degrees. Yep, I know, we wash colours at 40 right? Well, there’s no need – it’ll look and smell just great when washed at 30deg (as will most of your clothes!). It’ll also help to cut your electricity bill too – winner!
- Line dry after washing. Hot washing and tumble drying can effect the dimensional stability and can cause fading of the colours.
The clothes industry is a particularly dirty industry – we’re trying to do things in a better way!
None of our clothes contain polyester, nylon, or any other unsustainable man-made fibres, ensuring that micro plastics don’t end up in the sea. But that’s just the start. Below is a list of credentials that this product adheres to:
GOTS certified 100% Organic Cotton
Our organic cotton is certified by the Global Organic Textiles Standard (GOTS). This ensures that all of the cotton in the product is organic, but it also sets strict standards for the entire processing chain protecting both the end user and the environment. Check out our blog post on organic cotton for more information on why this is a better choice for the environment, or click the GOTS logo below to find out more about their certification.
