Dry fit is the hallmark of contemporary fashion. Plus it all is due to a wearing down of barriers in our modern-day lifestyles.
Work-life balance may be a relatively recent priority but it’s one made all the more achievable in high-performance fabrics that take women and men in the boardroom with their living spaces – then rear.
In fact, need for the most popular “sports leisure” style dominating performance-oriented fabrics has surged 17% in 2017 to $9.6 billion in sales.
The first time, the clothes we wear are working harder than we have been. And now we, our wardrobes, and our workdays just can’t apparently get enough.
WHAT IS A DRY FIT SHIRT?
A dry fit shirt, conversely, is often a combination of synthetic fibers like polyester, spandex, and elastene. There’s detailed engineering behind these performance fabrics and in most cases some form of silver, for anti-odor (or copper for anti-microbial).
The dry fit takes the dry blend t-shirt a step further, retaining its casual air but dedicating its utility solely to high-intensity or “high performance” occasions.
Weight rooms, spin classes, yoga mats, and running trails worldwide are where these synthetic fabric blends often pop-up.
But, like the athleisure “trend” shows, the dry fit t-shirt is just not restricted to these circumstances. An increasing number of t-shirts, in a number of designs, cuts, and fits are popping up in meetings, on courses, in coffee shops, on dates, and at work.
They’re lightweight, breathable and “moisture-” or “sweat-” wicking, that’s a certain.
But they’re also fitted, flexible, and durable. They cling to our bodies without feeling uncomfortable – and also the wearer doesn’t feel they’re sopping wet, even if they’re using custom dry fit shirts for sports or perhaps a fitness center.
