I know, I know – it was just yesterday that I was talking about some jeans on Kickstarter. Â Well, for whatever reason, there are some really interesting menswear projects hitting, so they’ll be showing up here when appropriate. Â One of the latest is a shirt I wish I would have had on a trip I was on last week – the Lotushirt.
Now, why did I want this for that past trip? Â When it comes to travel, if I can have a shirt that covers multiple days (which wrinkle free and fast drying means I can wash it in the sink if need be) that’s a bonus. Â On this particular trip, though, it’s the stain-resistant portion that grabs my eye. Â You see, I ended up dumping half of my lunch on myself the first day of the trip (hotel laundry service to the rescue). Â With the Lotushirt, I could have mitigated some of that.
A lot of this comes down tp the fabric, which was a lot of interesting things going on here. Â Along with all of the resistances, it’s labelled as being quite breathable, stretchy (which helps with comfort when you’re, you know, moving around), and just all-around comfortable.
That last bit, the comfort – along with all the other claims – we’ll be checking out. Â I’ve got a sample of the Lotushirt in right now, and we’ll be giving it the full-on review treatment. Â While you’re waiting for that, you can check out the project page here. Â Pricing for the shirt is starting atÂ $49, which really isn’t that bad for something that is so travel- and business-dress friendly. Â We’ll put it through the paces, and be back with the full review before the project closes out on June 2. Â project page
