Water costs 50 cents per gallon here, so clothing that is water-efficient to wash is almost as important to me as comfort! I don't have sun problems, so my uniform is nylon water shorts and a synthetic fabric Hawaiian shirt, they take almost no water to wash and dry fast. On very warm days it actually feels cooler to wear light loose clothing than exposed skin, then its long-sleeve SPF 30 shirts from LL Bean and loose light cotton-blend long pants. Cotton t-shirts get clammy and hold odors so we don't use them as much as we did in the Chesapeake.
