Like most men, I hate shopping unless its for some new piece of gear that has to do with either hunting, fishing, or the outdoors in general. But clothes shopping? Not so much. If you met me, you could easily figure this one out on your own as the faded T-shirts would attest, I’m just not into clothes. But fortunately, I have a great wife who lets me know when I’ve reached a point where my comfortable tees have to be traded-in (or burnt in some cases) for some shiny new shirts.
My requirements were simple. Find up to six shirts that could pull double duty, both at the office and as casual wear when we went out. I tried a few other brands and was disappointed in either the way the shirt would hold up under multiple washings or the static cling that seemed to plague many of the more expensive brands which use sweat-wicking, fast-drying synthetic. By sheer accident, I came across the HeatGear T-Shirt series from Under Armour which I’d heard made good stuff so I gave it a try and I am so glad I did!
Sporting a loose cut, these lightweight tees are manufactured with what they call charged cotton that basically performs the same sweat-wicking function that the synthetic materials do but retains the super-soft cotton feel of my old rags without static! The first one I bought was black and then after a week, I ordered five more in various colors and have never looked back.
The Under Armour HeatGear t-shirts not only fit superbly but they are a snap to take care of. I’ve found that if I turn them inside out, put them in a gentle cycle and then a gentle tumble dry (ok – my wife does this & she told me) they come out still like new. And they have no wrinkles to worry about.
If you’re in the market to replace your rags, Under Armour has got you covered. You will not be sorry!
