Wicked Wahine Wicked Wahine
What clothing material do you prefer for a long or short sleeved shirt? It doesn't matter who you are, just as long as you wear or have ever worn a shirt, you can answer this poll.

I know there are lots more possibilities, but I didn't think they would be as common as what I did list. Therefore, I rely on "other" & hope you will be nice enough to tell me in a comment what the other answer is!

Nothing beats a nice, soft cotton shirt. Cotton breathes, so I don't feel like I'm sweating to death on a hot day, but those awesome waffle thermal long sleeved shirts are great for keeping warm in the winter. It's a super easy fabric to care for, durable and doesn't give my sensitive skin anything to complain about.

Sure, it's not the sexiest of fabrics, but it's definitely the most versatile.

Light cotton. I hate the heavy cotton shirts.

Not sure. I like stretchy, light fabrics & I happen to like spandex & polyester blends. Hey, can't help it. They're comfortable. Lol.

Prefer long sleeved if it's cold, short if it's not. I own a whole lot more short sleeves than long, though. That's because you can't wear long sleeves all year, but on the other hand, you can wear short sleeves -- just add a jacket. This kind of thinking had me pretty screwed, though, this winter when I realized most of my remaining long sleeves were either from my high school days or missing. LOL. It's pathetic. So I fixed it a little bit -- went to Rue21 & bought a $3 long-sleeved white shirt & well, white goes with everything. Problem was, I can't wear it every single day because sometimes, it does have to be washed. Lol.

Cotton! It's comfy and reliable.

I am certain that I've always had some sort of sensory processing disorder and I will NEVER wear long sleeved t shirts. I'll wear sweatshirts and baggy cardigans over my shirts but for some reason I find it extremely uncomfortable to wear long sleeved shirts. I'll wear flannels over tank tops too because they're looser. I guess it's restricting my arms or something idk I just don't like it.

On the topic of 'things I will never wear', I'll also never wear turtlenecks because not only are they ugly, I feel kinda like I'm being choked when I wear them. I actually do own a black Banana Republic turtleneck (it's short sleeved at least) and it's part of the outfit that I wear to job interviews. I wear it because it makes me look professional and then I promptly take it off once I get home lol.

Winter it's wool or flannel. Summer it's linen or silk. For a dress shirt with a tie it's cotton oxford cloth. Like most things, there is no "one best" for each and every situation.

Silk is pretty awesome. It layers well and can look dressy.

I happen to live for the Summer, which means lightweight breathable soft natural fabrics for me. Wrap me up in an Egyptian high thread count sheet, and I’m good to go. Most clothing I wear is cotton and linen. What I choose is lightweight and very breathable. For my T-shirts I look for combed cotton, preferably with tag free collars. Tags can be an annoyance. For going out on the town, be it lunch or dinner, you will find me in mostly linen, but some silk. Hear me when I say that this is not snobbery. If you try it, you will never go back. For suit attire, I will be wearing an Egyptian white cotton dress shirt, usually without an undershirt. The Egyptian cotton is so cool and comfortable on the skin. If I use an undershirt with a dress shirt, its sleeveless cotton . Fabric texture is a very important when choosing shirts. A manufacturer dictates the process techniques employed. So, not all fabric is created equal when deciding on what to wear.

I would like to cover some other important aspects when deciding what clothing to buy. Important to me are matters of health, environment, and social conscience. I have no interest in wearing cloths manufactured from the sweat and tears of workers who are treated no better than slave labor. Also a matter of importance to me is how that product was grown and produced. We have pesticides and other chemicals which we have banned in this country, but we legally sell to third world countries who make much of our clothing. So, health, environment, and social conscience awareness should be an important part when deciding what shirt to buy.

If I had to choose, I'd go with cotton. It just breathes so well!

Thanks everyone for the answers, yes, as expected, cotton is the front runner.

@ Mr. John, thank you for the thoughtful response, I couldn't agree with you more about the other factors impacting choice!

Definitely something natural and breathable, cotton and linen are the best. But I really love fleece for clothes I wear at home, it is so comfy.
