Alexander McQueen Lightweight Sport Shirt

I paused for a few seconds when I saw this, paused not stopped. It’s not repulsive, neither is it tacky. It’s just unnecessary. It’s like one of those items where you’re in the middle of the fence but you buy anyway because it’s hugely discounted and you think you might make use of it someday. But that someday never came and you end up throwing it out after a few years wondering just why you bought it in the first place.

I’ve been trying to figure out just where it would be appreciate to to wear sheer shirts – definitely not at work (because your colleagues don’t need or want to see so much of you), or on a date or to dinner parties. So I guess a night on a town? That would still be pushing it a little too much.

It’s just that I don’t get the fully intentional sheerness of the fabric; why? I know it’s supposed to be lightweight and humidity-friendly but that doesn’t mean you save on fabric, it just means you use a higher thread count variety. And where would you wear this to? I don’t think it is appropriate to show your nipples on most occasions and you would definitely be showing and telling the upper half of your body with this shirt. No matter how modern it looks, save the negligee for the bedroom please. Plus, the sheerness of the fabric means you do have to ensure you have a decent, toned body because the shirt doesn’t hide much or anything at all.

The white contrast button is cute and goes well with the navy but that’s hardly even enough to redeem this shirt. Perhaps you’re supposed to layer it over a tee but then I don’t think that was ever the intention when this was designed.

Right Clothes For Losing Weight in the Gym

Right Clothes For Losing Weight in the GymWhen you visit the local gym or even the home gym in your basement, you will want to focus on something other than what you are wearing. After all, you need to be thinking about losing weight, getting fit, and improving your health as you work out in the gym. The last thing you should be concerned with is how you look or what kind of fashion statement you are making. This article provides some tips on how to make sure you are wearing apparel that is right for the occasion.

Men should try to wear shorts to the gym whenever possible. The reason you want to wear shorts is because shorts allow your legs to breathe and sweat as you go along with your workout. Sweating is an absolutely critical part of the workout process, as it allows your body to cool itself and prevent overheating. Try to find a pair of shorts that are loose fitting, but still tight enough so you do not have to worry about them falling off.

Although many men prefer shorts, some men find a pair of sweat pants is best for their work out. Whatever the preference however, the most important thing is to get in to the gym and work out.

In addition to shorts, many men find that the most effective top to wear during a workout is a simple t-shirt, mesh top, or tank top.

Women may find it most comfortable to wear either a pair of shorts or pants. Women will often be more comfortable in pants than men because their legs are not likely to sweat as much, combined with the fact that women usually have much less hair on their legs.

For a top, women may opt for either a t-shirt or a tank top. In addition, most women find that wearing a sports bra underneath will provide adequate support during a workout.

No matter what you decide to wear, make sure that it is made out of a breathable material. That means that your clothes should be able to let air in and out. Avoid clothing that is too tight, especially if it restricts normal breathing. Breathing is an extremely important part of any exercise routine and your clothing should not hinder it.

Finally, don’t worry about making a fashion statement when you’re trying to lose weight in the gym. The most basic clothes that you can find will probably work the best; it doesn’t have to be fancy or expensive. Just make sure that you are comfortable and able to move freely as you exercise.

Compression Shirts

There been something of a movement over recent years as tightly fitting running shirts have started to become more and more popular. The science of compression shirts whilst hard to comprehend doesn’t seem to be in dispute. So what exactly do compression shits do for us.

Well top of the list is a reduction in muscle vibration. Muscles work in a linear direction, but the nature of exercise means that we often place different strains on muscles, perhaps because of the terrain we’re running on. By holding the muscle tightly a compression top prevents unnecessary movement. This in turn reduces energy used, and the onset of fatigue.

The other main benefit of compression garments is blood flow improvement. A simple example of this are flight socks. These are designed to prevent problems such as deep vein thrombosis by improving blood flow in the lower legs. Compression shirts and shorts can have a similar effect. Compression improves bloody flow and so can enhance performance and recovery.

There are other beneifts. Some runners find lose fitting running tops uncomfortable. The either get wet with sweat, or if your out in the rain. A cotton Tee shirt will be incredible uncomfortable, but even technical lose fitting tops are often not ideal. Compression shirts stop all movement, and allow you get on with performing.

There are an increasing number of manufacturers moving into the production of compression shirts. Some are indeed excellent. These are usually the main sports manufacturers and running specialists. So if you are looking for that extra dimension to help your running performance, you should have a look at what is available and perhaps try a compression top.

Sport Shirts and Shorts That Help Fight the Heat

If you are planning to camp for a long time, then carry along with you extra sport shirts and shorts, especially during the summertime. There are different varieties of sport shirts and shorts available on the market that will allow you to keep cool and dry as it removes the sweat from the skin.

There are some sport shirts available on the market that use bamboo carbon odor control to prevent smelliness. In addition, these shirts are designed with an ultraviolet protection factor of fifty. The people who manufacture bamboo carbon claim the material will keep everything from food to feet smelling fresh for days. Maybe there is something to these claims because after are fish for two days in warm weather, then you can tell that this shirt smells relatively fresh. These shirts are also worked as a lightweight windbreaker. However, with its thin collar and oddly shaped breast pockets, the shirt looks too much like, well, a fishing shirt. If it resembled a casual dress shirt, then you would still wear it everywhere.

There are also some long-sleeve crew shirts that are made with from a vapor wick fabric, which the manufactures claims will draw perspiration to the exterior, where it evaporates quickly. The fabric does this through the use of millions of “hydrophobic” fibers. These shirts are lightweight and work well as a first layer under a jacket or windbreaker, but may be too thin to be worn by itself on cold, windy days. On the positive side, the material does not feel slick and cold like other synthetic fabric. In fact, it almost feels like cotton.

With some of the long sleeve tees that are available on the market are made from polyester and spandex, but the manufacturers claim they have the ability to stop bacteria from forming in the fiber, which reduces odors and they block harmful UV rays. In addition, they claim that the “high-twisted yarn” keeps you cool at all times. These shirts do a pretty good job of keeping you cool and comfortable under hot outdoor conditions. The drawback with most of these shirts are that they are offered in only bright colors that are sure to scare fish away.

If you chose your apparel wisely, then you will want cloths that are not too long, too short, in gaudy colors and most of all you will want them to be practical. During the summer months it will undoubtedly be hot and will only get hotter, and you are probably a big fan of wearing shorts. When you spend a lot of time outdoors fishing, camping, and hunting then you want an inexpensive pair of shorts that look good and are fit for a day in the outdoors.

There are shorts that are available with six different pockets and are perfect for any fishing trip, as they are designed with the angler in mind. These shorts feature two front trouser pockets, two back angled hook ‘n’ loop pockets, and two big pockets for beverages or extra gear, these work well for the weekend lake cruiser or the serious tournament fisherman alike. You can find these shorts that are made from soft one hundred percent cotton, which are extremely comfortable, because they are light and airy enough to keep my backside from heating up after sitting the boat’s vinyl seats. The shorts also come with built in belt, so the shorts stayed exactly where they were supposed to be.

What Makes a Golf Shirt Different From a Standard Polo Shirt

The terms “polo shirt” and “golf shirt” have been used interchangeably for years in reference to a classic style of short sleeved knit shirt with a placket and rib-knit collar. Within the apparel industry, however, there are clear distinctions between the definition of each.

A true golf shirt is distinguished by a tailored collar, a separate (or set-on) placket that is sewn on independently, hemmed sleeves and a chest pocket. Often, the pocket is located on the right side of the shirt in true golf styling, so as not to interfere with the golfer’s swing. Sleeves are generously sized with a length that falls just above the elbow. Shirts having these features are unquestionably top of the line.

Apart from the weight and the strength of the fabric, there are other considerations that further delineate golf shirts. The general trend is to more cotton content because of its natural properties of comfort and breathability. There are several types of knits, including interlock, jersey, lisle, and plaited knits. The primary distinction is the knit’s structure, each designed for its own particular application, and all suitable for embroidery.

Like T-shirts, better golf shirts employ more material. They are cut both full and long, occasionally incorporating a tail. The placket and sleeve should be completely top stitched to give a clean, finished appearance, outside and in. The same is true if of vents; a lesser golf shirt has a slit vent that is merely turned over and sewn down rather than finished with topstitching.

Golfers also prefer a shirt that will retain its color and size over time. There are three facets to a quality golf shirt; these are the quality of the raw materials, coupled with the stitching and the cut of the garment. If you want to add a fourth factor, it’s the overall performance, the end result of doing the rest right.

Pique Mesh
Often referred to as a Lacoste knit, pique mesh (pronounced pee-kay) has distinct right and wrong sides. The right side resembles a honeycomb or waffle and the wrong side is flat and smooth, similar to the front of jersey knit. The pique has a coarse, firm hand and generally uses fine yarns. However, when heavier or thicker yarns are used to knit a pique, a larger honeycomb effect is achieved.

Jersey Knit
The jersey is the lightest of the three knit types. Like the pique, it has two different sides. The right side shows vertical rows of loops or “wales”. The loops on the wrong side are wavier and run crosswise, Jersey is knit tightly with fine yarn and it tends to be the least expensive knitting processes. Jersey fabric is most associated with its ubiquitous use in T-shirts.

Interlock
Double-knit construction makes this the heaviest of the three knits. The weave is the same on both sides of the fabric. Its weight makes it an ideal fabric for custom embroidery, because it allows sewn designs to retain almost all of their original shape and luster after multiple washings. Although there are no distinctive knit features, interlock’s tight weave gives the smoothest surface and the finest hand. It is similar in cost to produce as a pique mesh.

Plaited Jersey
A plaited jersey or cotton is a blend of polyester and cotton in which most of the cotton is knitted to the wrong side, and most of the polyester is knitted to the right side. This provides a soft hand, and dull finish to the wrong side and a soft, but slick and shiny, finish on the right side. A plaited jersey is usually a 75% polyester, 25% cotton blend and the plaited cotton is usually 40% polyester, 60% cotton blend. So, a plaited cotton will be slightly less shiny than a plaited jersey.

Calendered Jersey
A calendered jersey will have a slightly different appearance than a traditional jersey because the fabric is pressed by rollers to give it a smoother, compacted look. This knit also has less elasticity than other jersey materials.
