I don’t shop there often, but when I do I always seem to find a new must-have item that I want to drop a bill on. What am I talking about? TJ Maxx and the item is the new, at least to me, Nike Dri-Fit cotton graphic t-shirts. The first reason for loving this shirt is that I sweat my butt off anytime the temps reach the 65 degree mark. That also might mean I’m overweight, but I’m in love with beer… so back off.
These Dri-Fit t-shirts were 10 bucks at TJ Maxx. Seriously, how do you go wrong for 10 bucks? More than likely, these are “last year’s model”, but as a guy I don’t really care. These shirts are the bee’s knees and I don’t think Dri-Fit t-shirts will be going out of style anytime soon.
First of all, it’s the lightest, most breathable t-shirt I have ever bought, tried on, or dreamt about and for a nice a little bonus it doesn’t showcase my nipples. Let us just call this a win, win. Second of all, the Dri-Fit fabric really does what it says. Last week, my wife and I walked all the way to the Coffee Emporium (local coffee shop) with my two purse dogs (my wife “made” me buy them but technically, you’d need a somewhat large purse to carry them). I threw this shirt on before the walk and five minutes into half mile, mostly uphill, it really wicked the sweat off my body. My only problem now is that I don’t have enough of these shirts! At this point, I’d even settle for a half dozen with the same logo on the front! Not to say that Nike needs anymore fans or self-promotion…
I’ve been searching the web for deals and it seems that Dick’s Sporting Goods has the best variety. They are a bit more expensive (about $30), so I’m still holding out that the Maxx will get a new shipment in. While Dick’s has the best variety of logos, from the basic Nike Air to King James, I’d rather turn this one yellow before I declare to the world that Lebron James is King. (Go Bucks!)
As you’re looking for items to add to your summer wardrobe, give this one a try. (And when you find them, buy multiples!) Because whether you’re at the gym or just hanging out, this shirt will help you beat the summer heat and look good while doing it. Until next time…
