So ….what with ‘M’s tackle difficulties earlier this week …..plus my own methods of staying cool in the heat it got me thinking
In a previous life I travelled abroad quite a bit and over the years ….particularly when sun chasing ……got it down to a fine art of just needing enough to put in ONE medium sized hold-all …..many might consider it ‘hand luggage’ :D:D:D
So …..to men in hot weather ….hmmmmmm ……think about men’s clothing ….I mean really THINK about it!!!??
I take ‘M’s point that ‘Trousers’ ….or the tailored type in PARTICULAR are a little restricting ….and let’s not even go there with the full ‘suited & booted’ look …..what are ‘tie’s’ all about for example? …..I wonder who decided it was ‘de rigueur’ to wear a strip of cloth tied in a specific knot around one’s neck!!! …….or even worse …..a BOW!!!:D:D:D
So here are my tips for men to help maintain ‘coolness’ in the heat of summer:D:D:D
Firstly ALWAYS remember that WAFT is key …..so cloth of some kind IS important in my view as it creates it …..promotes air circulation if you will …..and I am led to believe this is a particular issue with regard to a guys tackle:D:D:D
Also to get the full benefit it is ESSENTIAL to wear natural fibres in the heat ….cotton, silk, linen …..polyester et al does NOT cut it ….trust me
So maybe we should look to warmer climes for inspiration ……I have been fortunate enough to to visit Thailand in the past so know from experience how ‘cool’ these are ….
If you are after the FULL waft experience ….where better to look than the Arabian countries ….stunning in brilliant white cotton ….and yes …..it’s a maxi dress for men …..in ADDITION to billowing head gear providing sun protection AND that all important breeze effect:)
And finally my favorite ……..a simple oblong of cloth that can be worn in a multitude of ways and done so in MANY countries …..the Lunghi or Sarong ….eeeeeeasy….just throw on a T’shirt and a pair of flip flops to go about town if you feel a little exposed………….don’t forget your bottle of water and maybe a plain ‘macho’ coloured Japenese fan …………DONE!!!
It doesn’t HAVE to be heavy going does it! 🙂
