I hear leather breathes extremely well, why animals were able to survive in the middle of deserts all the way to the ice caps.

this is so wrong

I identify as an American; Between the enchilada-eaters and the poutine-eaters. We consider Linen a novelty and wear cotton 24/7

Linen is a fascinating novelty. Personally, I prefer light-weight cotton cloth. YMMV

That's pretty much entirely incorrect - which deserves a round of applause. A layer of air between skin and clothes acts as insulator and brings down skin temperature significantly in hot climate. And as far as perspiration is concerned, it has cooling properties so it helps the cause.

The new guy who posted the bit about linen is, unfortunately, completely wrong.  I have personal experience that says so, AND a source! teacha.gif

 

  • Absorbency: Absorbency refers to the extent to which moisture can penetrate into a fiber. Another linen property is that the fiber absorbs moisture and dries more quickly. It is excellent for manufacturing towels and handkerchiefs.
  • Heat Conductivity: Heat conductivity refers to the extent to which heat can be conveyed through a fiber. Heat conductivity of linen is five times as high as that of wool and 19 times as that of silk. It is most suitable for use in summers, as the fiber allows the heat to escape, leaving a cool effect.Studies have shown that with linen clothes perspiration is 1.5 times less than when dressed in cotton clothes. It is twice less than when dressed in viscose clothes. Meanwhile in cold seasons linen is an ideal warmth-keeper.

Guy, I was defending your fit/opinion. Also, Linen is nice. IMO linen is "cool" but I prefer, based on my own personal ANECDOTES, cotton. I personally prefer cotton over linen. Enjoy your linen.... I rarely wear mine.

Digging that, toasty, but the hair is a bit too conservative for the fashion-forward duds.
post #70963 of 117666
like it as well, but I think either sleeves or thinner tank would be nicer. Something about sleeveless is just kinda weird..

i'm getting a haircut this weekend again...the sides grow out very fast. I really want some type of extreme contrast with 1 on the sides and some hair on top that I can style up.

i have been considering just going terribly short all around. Sort of like 1234 but a bit longer on top so I can style it.

but i agree, past days i've been thinking about how i can do something better with hair =\

i want something short and either extreme or subtle like a fade.

I rock that hairstyle. 1 on the sides and all around...sometimes I tell the barber to give me more of a "v" shape fade instead of all around round looking. But it don't matter. The top I leave like 3 inches long. I can leave it messy or do a faux hawk.
