You're right. I have these cotton shirts from hnm and they're very light and breezy and wick moisture pretty well.
I'll look for zimmerli but it appears tarjay has a moisture wicking line of undergarments made by champion
Just had a look at them online.
My experience with polyester/spandex blends is that, although they feel very light and sexy, as soon as you do a bit of exercise they become a bit oversoaked and in general are much worse.
They may wick some of the moisture, but when actually underneath clothes their function seems to be halted.
We are the hollow sneaks
We are the stuffed sneaks
toe box filled with straw. Alas!
Our dried laces, when
We whisper together
Are quiet and meaningless
As wind in dry grass
Or rats’ feet over broken glass
In our dry cellar
Shape without form, shade without colour,
Paralysed force, gesture without motion;
Those who have crossed
With direct eyes, to death’s other Kingdom
Remember us—if at all—not as lost
Violent souls, but only
As the hollow sneaks
The stuffed sneaks.
