The business model was to invent a light weight and comfortable undershirt that could counteract the heat of the South. With many cities in the Gulf Coast on pace for their hottest years ever, the traditional undershirt had to change. With that in mind, TRI DRI® also wanted the ability for its undershirts to double as gym shirts. All TRI DRI ® undershirts are made from lightweight micro polyester with wicking capabilities.
This had to be done with costs in mind.TRI DRI® didn’t want to sell undershirts that were more expensive than the dress shirts covering them. All feedback is welcome and we would love to hear your ideas about how we can improve our undershirts for you.

TRI DRI Initial Thoughts (Size: Medium)
I got the chance to give the first generation of TRI DRI undershirts a test-drive a couple months ago and found the fabric, a mesh/cellular-like very lightweight polyester, to be very similar to the Vdri moisture wicking undershirt that I wrote about way back in 2008.
The positive aspect of this type of fabric is that it’s extremely lightweight, has a smoother outer finish which allows your outer shirts to drape nicely, and it breathes very well. One downside is that moisture-wicking fabrics like this are non-absorbent, so if you’re a heavier sweater, there’s a possibility that you may sweat-through to your outer layer more quickly.
I found the fit to be on the generous side. I prefer my undershirts to be close or form fitting and this medium-sized undershirt felt a bit more like a large. Of course, with TRI DRI looking to have their undershirt double as an athletic/gym shirt, the looser fit would be more appropriate. Check the sizing chart on the product pages to ensure you find the right fit.
