    Nope, for me, everything has to be woven. Especially my rackets. Oh wait, are the Cab 20 Tours woven? Nope...doh!

    Going back to the polyester-type, quick dry material, I've noticed many different knit patterns and they make a huge difference on the quality and feel of the clothes.

    Mr. Linen, care to enlighten us what are the different types of knit and how they rate polyester quality?

    Actually, the knit pattern has less effect on moisture wicking than the type of polyester. Consumers pay a premium on ultra-fine microfiber polyester.

    here are photos of various shirts from different markets.
    there are pictures of the outside surface and the inside surface as well.
    i also threw in a couple other nike/adidas shirts for comparison as well, because honestly, they feel every bit just as good and perform just as well as the yonex ones. sometimes even better...

    for smoothest exterior i'd have to rank them as...
    nike drifit, yonex japan, adidas climalite yonex canada, yonex taiwan, yonex china.

    for smoothest interior, it'd be...
    nike drifit, adidas climalite, yonex japan, yonex canada, yonex china, yonex taiwain

    for best performance, comfort, etc...
    adidas climalite, nike drifit, yonex japan, yonex canada, yonex china/taiwan

    another interesting note is the insane differences in sizing!!!

    all these shirts are more or less the same size and fit for me
    the pink/red shirt is a it smaller than the rest, while the two taiwan shirts are a bit bigger than the rest.

    canada small, china large, japan medium, taiwain XL

    That would be me.

    FYI: I find Under Armour polyester to be the best that I've tried so far.

    Chicken: thanks for the great analysis. If you get a chance, try some Under Armour stuff, it performs even better than Adidas and Nike.

    yeah, i plan to. but what i was really interested in was the underarmor cold stuff! i figured it might be useful when running. running indoors is boring.
