Well, I live in Wisconsin, not exactly your Mid-Atlantic. But it gets hot in the summer, and cotton tees work for me. Maybe if I tried Dri-Fit and other athletic apperal, I might really like them. They are just really expensive.Are you kidding? That wouldn't fly around the mid-atlantic...way too humid. You'd have to peel it off your body between every point, 'cause of the sweat. Is that ever an issue or am I crazy?
