I get the feeling that the fabric on these will make non-iron shirts feel like Sea Island cotton by comparison.

I had a Hugo Boss suit I bought at Barney's warehouse sale back about ten years ago. It was sort of a light grey color under most indoor light, but outside in direct sunlight it turned green, like the green color used in money. It was ridiculous.

Any time frame on how long before your penis falls off after exposure to all these chemical processes ?

I had a Hypercolor shirt back in the 80s - the idea of using chemical processes to change fabric color is not a new one. I do, however, have a pair of regular trousers that "changes color" depending on the light source. Incandescent light makes them look brown, while fluorescent light makes them look olive.

I have a jacket that I swear looks plain grey in the closet, but turns sage in the flourescent light. Not a big issue until I pair it with a lilac shirt, and then I look like a fool.

Apparently the grey-turning-to-green in different light phenomenon is fairly common.

Caveat emptor!

I have a pair of Lauren (diffusion line) wool trousers that do this. In incandescent v flourescent v. natural light they range from med. brown to olive green. I have enough pants that by the time i get around to wearing them again it catches me off guard - again.

The idea of color coordination by microchip sounds nice. (Colorblindness might not be common among forum members, but it is common among men in the general population.) Thanks for sharing.
