sacrilegious?

I have donated to the thrift store all my high tech shirts of nylon or polyester (mostly Columbia titanium button ups) because I find them to give me rashes, to be warmer, and to stink worse than cotton, or preferably for heat, seersucker.

Am I alone?

I can't wear the synthetic fabrics either. They rub my neck raw. I know they say no cotton as it holds moisture but I have to go with a light-weight woven cotton when it's hot. As long as it's loose, it dries pretty well.

I too can't wear the plastic stuff, makes me stink like I haven't bathed in a month. I find those cheap Hawaiian shirt are good at keeping me cool, while proving just a little more smelly than cotton. And I look the suave tourist part too! (Now if I can only find wingtips with vibram soles…)

I like cotton, too. But I live in the desert and I WANT my tee shirt to retain moisture. Really helps to cool me off.

Vibram soled wing tips - just might be the new trend!

I still have 2 left... grey, size large...

I am in Canada,

but if you want to pay for the post,

they will be on their way.

Actually, my Dad will be in Seattle at the end of August,

which would make it significantly cheaper and easier (no declarations at the border)...
