[pct-l] Re: Pure Silk

I cast another vote for silk dress shirts from the thrift store.  Their
voluminous cut keeps bugs and sun off;  they catch every breeze and dry
in less than an hour.  Solid color shirts seem to have a longer life
than print shirts, something about the dye (bleach?) process in creating
a print seems to weaken the fabric.  I start every month long trek with
three new (to me) shirts and toss them all when I get home.  They are
incredibly cool and comfortable on warm hiking days.
