Performance Fabric: Queensboro Fabric Facts

Wilmington, N.C. – Whether it’s logo tees, logo polos, or some other piece of sportswear, you can learn how to stay cool this summer by learning more about the new “performance” fabrics. So, what is performance fabric?

Here at Queensboro, we’d like to provide you with information about these fabrics (online and via our customer service staff), and offer the latest performance fashions to you – which make use of new state-of-the-art weather and moisture management technologies and materials.

Picture This Hot Scene!

The day is gorgeous and you’re just teeing up on #3. The sun is beating down hard.  And…  already, you’re drenched and dripping with sweat! Yuk! Golf is fun, but staying dry and cool during summer play is often a challenge, and can wreak havoc on your score.

The same holds true in the gym, on the tennis court,  or when you’re out and about doing errands or walking back and forth to work. Worrying about your clothes rather than the activity at hand is just plain distracting.

During these summer months, how do you stay cool, calm and collected, and look good at the same time? And how can you prevent all that sweat from affecting your game, and your life? Once just for runners, cyclists and sports fanatics, performance items are breaking out into the mainstream.


A Performance Primer

What is performance fabric? Performance fabrics made for a wide variety of uses, which provide functional qualities, such as moisture management, UV protection, anti-microbial, thermo-regulation, water resistance, and wind resistance.

And here are some related terms:

- Quick-Dry – a high activity sportswear fabric that absorbs, wicks and dries faster than average sportswear, or golf wear. Nike’s patented Dri-Fit Technology is breathable, high-quality fabric that’s specifically designed for athletes to help increase performance.

- Microfiber – fabric that is tightly woven from a very fine poly thread and has a sueded finish for a luxurious, soft feel. Microfiber fabric is naturally water repellent due to its construction process and when specially treated can also be waterproof. (Some folks call this feature “moisture-wicking”.)

(Both of these terms can be found in the Queensboro Glossary. )

How do they work? These newly-engineered fabrics move moisture away from your skin and isolate it on the outer surface so the moisture can evaporate. No more feeling like your shirt is glued to your body! No more embarrassment. No more wondering if you could have shot a stronger game if you had been cooler and drier.

There are indeed psychological benefits to wearing the new performance fabrics: keeping a lower skin temperature, reduced perceived physical exertion during exercise, and the increased ability to keep your focus on your game – rather than feeling and looking wet.

The new performance fabrics also:

- Stay strong despite frequent washes.  Unlike cotton tees or tanks, performance apparel lasts longer due to the construction. (Likewise, the underarm material won’t discolor because of your perspiration.)

- Can be used all throughout the year. For example, in winter months, performance apparel can be layered under your outerwear. In colder temperatures, performance apparel is ideal for skiing, hunting, running, etc.

- Are perfect for traveling since they are virtually wrinkle free, and resist piling.

- Performance fabrics virtually neutralize odor, making them ideal for physical activity.
