btw ... the Egyptian cotton gear turned out to be pretty damn fine. Sizing was generous but they do shrink when dried by machine. Service excellent. All in all, happy to recommend.

Probably mentioned by me previously but Cabelas Long and Short sleeve Tees and their Henleys are good buying. Not cheap but reasonably priced and excellent quality.

I'm sure it could be organised. I've got some mates coming over from San Diego end of year so I may get them to bring a red cross parcel.

Anywho, the Egyptian cotton people ship anywhere so I've just ordered a couple of samples. Not cheap but if the quality matches the pricing then I'll still be a happy camper. Even better they have long sleeve tees and some fabulous cotton pants.

thanks again.

I like the look of those Egyptian cotton tees and pants. Jiffy shirts are damned cheap but alas won't ship outside of America.

dave, late in the last century they found ways to solve that problem too. The better synthetics, the ones you won't find on the five dollar rack, are often odor resistant. Some use micronized silver in the fabric, which kills the micro-organisms that cause the odors. Used in sox and underwear too, for the same reason.

Uh no.. I don't do wet Tshirt contests

But why not????

I just saw this thread and pardon me if it's already been mentioned but the high tech fabrics, while really effective have the downside of being harder to rid of odor. Has to do w/ the synthetic fibers being really good at trapping the smell.

tis true young Marty tis true. Slightly oversize marginally heavier weight cloth works best for me as well. Very light cloth simply ends up drenched.

and fear not my fine feathered friend, I''ll try and avoid posting incriminating pics.
