No, really silk shirts keep me cool & comfortable during those 12 hour working days. Sometimes I walk, sometimes I cycle, sometimes we have long, pointless meetings
when One just wants to gnaw at ones own arm, just to relieve the boredom…
This shirt is satin silk. (Not to be confused with satin polyester, which is an entirely different species, that will make you hot, clammy, & sweaty.)
it is becoming increasingly difficult to find affordable 100% silk shirts for work, so if you have some hang on to them for dear life. (yes, I have heard of equipment, good but not impressed, plus some seem to be cut like US army tents.) it is incredible that so many shops only sell ugly, synthetic, fast fashion for imaginary lifestyle scenarios. Presumably most of us have to go to work and need lovely, fashionable as well as comfortable clothes, for our real life, the office, the bus stop etc.
Quality silk machine washes well, (in a net bag) and is relatively easy breezy to iron. I hang mine up to dry on a clothes hanger and then quick iron or steam at lowest settings, while still a little damp. In the summer to survive the day, I pretty much only wear silk or linen shirts for work, so perfect for those après work drinkies too…
Do you like silk shirts for work? Or perhaps linen?
