Toned down colors and relaxed fit

Verified Buyer Reviewed by nolajoe57 from New Orleans on Saturday, February 13, 2016
I live in New Orleans and wear Exoffico products most of the year because of high humidity. I started with the 100% nylon Exoffico [...] like Reef Runner and Air Strip. I have begun to wear the Contur'd shirts instead for the following reasons:
I lost 25 pounds and wanted a less billowy fit.
I wanted a slightly heavier material than 100% nylon.
I wanted some plaids.
I wanted slightly less bright colors.
I got a Mango colored Reef Runner shirt and it was too bright for me. The Countour'd Mango color is still warm but more modulated. I will say the Contour'd Mango color is brighter than the STP website photos. The Contour'd shirts are also more form fitting.
It's a great shirt and, like most Exoffico products, will take forever to wear out.
A few tips about Exoffico sizing:
The Natural fit is form fitting and not for guys who have large bellies or chests. It's also called a Straight fit.
Relaxed fit is loose and the Exoffico standard. However, if you want to tuck the shirt into pants, Relaxed fit has a lot of material.
Modern Relaxed is halfway between Natural and Relaxed.
The Contour'd shirt is a Modern Relaxed fit.
Waist Sizing on Exoffico shorts and pants tends toward a Natural or Straight fit. I wear a 32" relaxed fit in jeans but a 34" waist in Exoffico shorts/pants. The 32" Exoffico waist just didn't have enough give to it.
Three last notes on Exoffico:
Some colors and styles/products are manufactured once or twice only. If you see a color or piece of clothing you might want, get it. it may not be available again. For the example, Exoffico has stopped making Pescatore shorts (my favorite). A lot of Exoffico products on STP are close outs and can't be found the following year.
Exofficio Bone color is a very light Beige.
Exofficio white nylon shirts are easily stained in the neck and armpit area by perspiration.
