I commute by bicycle, and it’s pretty much dry by the time I start working. I’m really impressed.
This time of year, I perspire in my suit when I go out on business or to lunch. But when I wear AIRism, I don’t feel sticky.
With this single undergarment I feel dry even in the muggy Bangkok heat. I’m surprised.
I’m a huge nature-lover, but I love how soft and smooth AIRism feels against my skin.
I spend my days surrounded by active kids, but AIRism is so stretchy and easy to move around in, it’s a must-have.
It’s so light and smooth against my skin when I wear It under my white garment, so I can concentrate on my work.
I love how well the smooth fabric of AIRism fits, like it’s hugging me.
AIRism dries really quickly during hot weather, so I feel comfortable when I return to my chilly office from being outdoors.
It’s pretty warm outside, but it’s chilly inside the gym. With guick-drying AIRism I feel comfortable.
It’s so stretchy and easy to move around in that I forget I’m wearing it.
I think AIRism minimizes the risk of body odor. so I feel at ease when welcoming guests.
I love how quickly AIRism dries, keeping my boys from feeling chilly after a hard football practice.
When it's a hot day, I perspire quite a bit. I’m surprised at how quickly AIRism wicks away moisture and how little it sticks to my skin.
Even if I perspire during exercise, it dries so quickly that I can concentrate on my next class.
Engineered to keep you feeling fresh year-round, AIRism is in fact a pioneering blend of three fabrics. Polyamide, its major ingredient, was launched under the name nylon at the 1939 New York World’s Fair and caused a sensation when it was made into women’s stockings a year later. During World War II the United States had no access to Asian silk, so polyamide was used in the making of parachutes and flak jackets. Significant for AIRism, nylon fabric has wicking properties, drawing sweat away from the wearer’s body.
AIRism’s next greatest component is cupro, a cellulose material that has the feel of a natural fiber. Developed early in the twentieth century, fabrics of this kind, such as rayon and viscose, were a defining feature of the tight-fitting yet draped fashions of the 1930s. The material’s success was such that the 1937 New York Beaux Arts Ball was dubbed, “Fête de Rayon Fantastique.” Cupro feels soft on the skin but does not insulate, making it perfect for warm weather. The third element of AIRism is spandex, a fabric known for its extreme stretchiness. Introduced in 1958, it was initially confined to dedicated sportswear, but after a few decades made its way into tights, leotards, and bodysuits. The craze for exercise- inspired outfits prompted a spandex crisis in 1987, but by the 1990s supplies were secure and the fabric edged toward ubiquity. These days a lot of our clothes benefit from a little spandex give.
In AIRism, these three twentieth century fabrics are combined to create a distinctly twenty-first century concept, one that’s changing the way we think about innerwear: a garment with quick-drying, anti-moisture functionality that you put on in order to feel cool and refreshed in any season. The term “smart clothes” might seem to imply complex technology, but in the case of AIRism, smartness proves simple.
