Ted baker shirts are good looking and breathe well

Kooples have some very light ones too

Too much to ask?

Triblend might be possible in a formal shirt. 50% Cotton, poly, viscose. Polyester fibres can be formed by extruding tubes and is hydrophobic, it dries faster and allows water to escape without expanding and becoming clingy or muggy. Cotton logs sweat, insulates and so traps more sweat. You never perspire properly. Viscose is a product of wood, and like wood, water travels along it or through it, but then it dries out. It's less of a sponge. I know what you mean, I've always worn cotton shirts butt have to undo them all the time because they get so muggy. I resorted to wearing short sleeve ones, which is a ... Look that's hard to pull off. I have huge elbows.

So you may have to rethink cotton. You can't engineer it apart from the weave or wear a lighter shirt, which creases more easily.

Easy iron shirts are generally a poly blend. You want a moisture wicking shirt, which can include a special chemical coating that draws moisture out to the surface to evaporate. A poplin weave is more open and so breathable. You might want to switch to a polo which is similar intentions.

I found this cool because it shows the stitch and explains seasons and different fabric weave qualities: https://www.batchmens.com/pages/dress-s ... aves-guide

If you like I can have a browse at wholesale and you may find some getting punted on Amazon etc. But that's some basic knowledge, I don't really deal in formal wear but I know these are definitely a thing. Just probably not 100% cotton. It is ultimately cotton that causes this. It's warm. That's why it's dominated the textiles market. And it's why all track and sportswear is mostly synthetic (although there's a decoration reason I won't get into).

I have a Uniqlo shirt that I find very good! I think they specialise in high tech fabric and have sweat free ones.
Also very easy to iron literally one press is all it needs with very little effort :D I hate ironing

I'm not sure would want to pick up that gun if you just needed to know where the trigger is in a split second encounter.

Looks like just the thing to rob a bank with.

Better than using a banana anyways.

I just ordered the all new Kindle Oasis 3 :D .

I've wanted an Oasis for years but was always put off by the premium price and the fact I have a paperwhite 2 but this year I thought sod it I'll treat myself and go bonkers.
I went with the ultra deluxe version with 32GB storage and 4G as this will hopefully last me a fair few years :wub: .

I'd be really interested in hearing if you think it's worth the money once you've had a chance to use it. I've got a paperwhite that I'm more than happy with but am always tempted by the Oasis as well.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say it's most likely going to be not as good as I'm hoping and not really worth the extra over the Paperwhite which I think is pretty much perfect but sod it I've wanted a larger kindle for bloody ages.
I've got the OG kindle, Kindle 2, paperwhite and paperwhite 2.

I'd say it's most likely only going to be worth it if like me you like the idea of having The Rolls Royce of Kindles so you can Lord it over commoners with the puny paperwhite :shifty: .

It also plays audio books which is also a bonus.

What are the sizes like for Uniqlo tees? I generally go for a large in most brands (around 44” chest) and I like my tees to be slightly tight fitting.

Got an email today saying there were some new designs, and were limited to 1 of each per customer.

I think the reason for that is it said they were something to do with that korean BTS pop group.

They're not slim-fit but not really loose either, a bit in between.

Bought these ones

I am officially buying no more until the current Marvel and Star Wars ones go on sale then that's that.

They're almost semi-fitted. I too like a tighter fitting tee and what was putting me off, I think, was all the models, who appear on the slim/small side, wearing larger sizes. My first order I opted for size M and L printed tees and they both fit close to the body, as it were. I now go with the L. So yeah, they're a nice snug tee. The printed ones at least.

Well, if you are the banana you may get super powers and that'd help you rob the bank even better than a gun.

I have a paperwhite 2 with ads and they really aren't a problem.
They only pop-in on the lock screen and have almost zero impact as I can't say I've ever taken notice of them as they disappear as soon as you unlock the device. I could pay the £10 to remove them but as I said they don't bother me as I just unlock my kindle without thinking about it but maybe I'm just odd. I can honestly say I've never even noticed an ad and have certainly never been lured into a purchase so of all the ways ads get shoehorned into stuff I think this may indeed be the most unobtrusive.

£5.90 is too good to pass up.
