I wonder what kind of clothes doesn’t easily let the sweat to show through. Regardless, the smell is a problem anyway. As for me I don’t sweat much if I wear some casual shirt untucked. If I wear a strict shirt tucked in or even a suit in summers I do start to sweat a lot.

I do, sweating directly into a good dress shirt doesn't make much sense to me.

The fact of the matter is even if I was buck naked in a New York City summer, with the humidity and the oven-like qualities of the hot buildings and black top I would still be sweating. Might as well, just put something on to soak it all up.

Hot weather: coats in hopsack wool, plain weave wool, high twist wool, mohair blends, linen, cotton. Unlined.

Weather too hot for any coat: Long sleeve guayabera that covers most of the seat:

If you didn't already know, wearing your shirt like it's a bikini top is all the rage in China.

Linen, Fresco, doesn't matter here in Hong Kong. One thing that helps a lot is not carrying a bag or anything in your hands if you can swing it.

Best combination of being a good location for my career, being convenient geographically, and being quite fun and safe. If I need to leave HK in the future I don't know where else I'd like to go other than Australia.

Or do what all the wealthy New Yorkers do, move to Bar Harbor.

Isn't that like HK though? Just colder and less Chinese. Probably no shirt rolling in NYC either.
