How to Stop Sweating in Your Clothing: Men’s Professional Style Tips
Tip #29: Sweat less in your suit and dress shirt.
Sweating while dressed up in a suit and dress shirt can be uncomfortable and embarrassing. A lot of men face this problem, but not everyone knows how to tackle it. If you're one of the many men who run hot or sweat a lot, this post is for you. In this guide, we'll go over the best fabrics and undershirts to help you stay cool and comfortable all day long.
First and foremost, the type of fabric you choose can make a huge difference. If you run cold or don't sweat much, you can opt for wool/polyester blends or heavier wool fabrics like Super 80, Super 90, or Super 150. However, if you run hot or sweat a lot, it's best to opt for 100% wool fabrics in the Super 120 to Super 150 range. These lighter fabrics are more breathable and can help you stay comfortable and dry.
In addition to choosing the right fabric, it's also important to consider the type of undershirt you wear. If you run hot, it's best to opt for a v-neck undershirt instead of a crew neck. This way, the undershirt won't show when your dress shirt is unbuttoned. A product called "The Thompson Tee" is also worth considering. This undershirt is specifically designed to absorb sweat, so it may be a good option if you're looking for a more comfortable and dry experience.
It's also important to avoid 100% polyester or microfiber fabrics, as these are of lower quality and can cause you to sweat even more. They can start pilling quickly and are much heavier, so they won't help you stay cool and comfortable.
Sweating in your suit and dress shirt can be a thing of the past if you choose the right fabric and undershirt. Opt for lighter wool fabrics in the Super 120 to Super 150 range, and choose a v-neck undershirt instead of a crew neck. Avoid 100% polyester or microfiber fabrics, as these can make you sweat even more. With these tips, you'll be able to stay cool, comfortable, and stylish all day long.
