Great news for those of you that work in a hot & stuffy office.  Sure you may be sweating it out at one of your tense business meetings, but now you can at least where a dress shirt made with moisture wicking properties to help keep you cool.

Esmetex has news that will be benefit consumers and provide new alternatives to dress shirt manufacturers around the world.

Esmetex, a global leader in producing and sourcing fabric, is pleased to announce its first collection of casual and dress shirt fabrics that combines the cooling and moisture wicking properties of SORBTEK®, with the recycled benefits of REPREVE®.  These lightweight fabrics are ideal for bringing performance benefits to the casual and dress shirt market
                               
In an effort to continue offering the latest in fabric development to the industry, Esmetex is the first company to launch REPREVE and SORBTEK, both products of Unifi, Inc. (NYSE: UFI), in shirt weight fabric.  SORBTEK offers the desired properties found in athletic wear, such as moisture wicking, which allows the wearer to feel cooler, drier and more comfortable, along with the convenience of soil release technology.  Each shirt made with REPREVE will contain an average of two recycled plastic bottles. 
                               
"REPREVE with SORBTEK technology brings unparalleled benefits that are new to the casual and dress shirt market," said Victor Chao, chief marketing and product development officer for Esmetex.  "Consumers love the benefits of active wear, but traditionally haven't been able to get those same benefits in their everyday casual and dress shirts. Fabrics made with REPREVE and SORBTEK offer that cool, dry feeling we desire in athletic clothes; with the added benefit of keeping plastic bottles out of landfills."
                               
Esmetex is launching two yarn dyed fabric blends, one with 54 percent cotton/46 percent REPREVE, and the other 70 percent cotton/30 percent REPREVE.  The weight for both fabrics is 4.5 ounces per square yard, and the width is 57 inches. 
                               
"We're pleased that Esmetex turned to Unifi for eco-friendly performance technology in their latest development of light weight shirting fabrics," said Jay Hertwig, vice president of global branding for Unifi Inc. "Our work with Esmetex resulted in the combination of our SORBTEK and REPREVE technologies in shirting fabrics for a new group of consumers who are seeking performance outside the gym."
