I recently saw this shirt on 'This Morning'. They did an on show test and it was proven that this does actually work.

Taken from the website....

"Until now, sweat control technology has been the domain of sports wear. But a new range of shirts has been launched that can prevent unsightly patches.

THEY’RE unsightly and not even the fittest of men can avoid underarm sweat patches at some point or other. And they’re especially noticable on dark coloured formal shirts.

For men who suffer in over-heated offices or have to hurry from meeting to meeting, help is at hand because Marks & Spencer have come up with a solution for those embarrassing circles.

The company will be launching a range of sweat-free shirts for men, the first of their kind on the high street. The Dry Extreme shirt uses Smartweave technology to avoid sweat patches, keeping men dry and smart all day. The shirt has been designed to avoid sweat patches forming by drawing perspiration away from the ski, into the inner fabric and dispersing it as vapour. The outer fibres of the shirt reflect moisture and prevent discolouration.

The Dry Extreme shirt has been developed in response to customer feedback.

“Sweat patches can be an embarrassing problem for men, especially when they are faced with stressful situations and looking sharp through the summer months. Our Dry Extreme shirts provide the perfect solution, giving the wearer a formal shirt with the hidden benefit of keeping them smart and dry. We think they will be a great success with our customers,” says Mark Yates, M&S technical manager.

Priced at £39.50, the range consists of four styles – plain white and blue, striped navy/white and striped sky/white."

This sounds like an April Fool's Day joke! Very Happy

It would be great if they actually worked but I can't see them actually being able to "vaporise" the quantities produced while dancing. Smile

Well here is the like to M&S website page:
http://www.marksandspencer.com/Dry-Extreme-Shirts-Mens/b/648956031?ie=UTF8&pf_rd_r=1DMRHAFZ41Y7ZTNMBYKK&pf_rd_m=A2BO0OYVBKIQJM&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_i=43371030&pf_rd_p=475115433&pf_rd_s=left-nav-2

It looked pretty good when they did the test on the show, i'm hoping they'll do something like this for women. I would definatly get one to try. Very Happy
