I think you've got to poly. It's humid in Pennsylvania. I'm am most cotton free on my boat. I think I have two cotton items. Maybe some runners T's for tapered fit. Don't go smartwool. I made that mistake. It feels gross when its over 60.

I have also done the exact same thing. I'm on a pretty tight budget for the next year or two.

Lots of people buy T shirts on-line. I do -- invariably it seems that when I shop in a brick and mortar store, they're sold out in my size except for the color that makes my complexion look as though I'm about ready to upchuck. Or they have plenty of great colors but nothing in my size. Besides, buying on line means I skip the dressing room and the long line at the check-out.

Jones .... I trust that like me you went bare chested ? Oh man, you should have seen them swoon.

Ruby .... interesting isn't it that we buy clothes online without trying them on yet must try on when shopping in person.

Obviously you lot are more concerned with moisture in hot weather than cold. I've been in some pretty humid environments in Oz, Asia and even the Med but never anywhere that a thin cotton or silk shirt couldn't cope and cope without what I see as the drawbacks of synthetics.

Yes, +1 on the Kirkland t shirts, for undershirts in the winter they are the best, wish they made black, I like them because they don't need bleach to keep them looking nice. We have an older septic system and I try to keep the bleach to a minimum.

Washing and drying is one of the best things, you can wash. wring them, then hang them up and they will be dry in the AM.

More often than not my t-shirt winds up being a sweat mop in the summer. I literally take it off and use it to wipe my face and head (I sweat in rivers).

I think sarong's are best for both men and women - they let air move.

"that is a dress not a sarong! "

The resemblance between pleated "Catholic school girls'" dresses and lightweight (modern) men's kilts....Maybe this is why priests have been having so much confusion about altar boys?

A fad like "pants" can't last much longer anyway. Surely.
