WHAT I’VE GOT: Uniqlo AIRism
I spent half a year before grad school living in Taiwan – a period which included the sweltering summer months. It was during this time that I discovered Uniqlo’s AIRism line of shirts — T-shirts made with a synthetic fabric precisely engineered to both be and feel cool.
I’ve always been a big fan of Uniqlo (hello, cheap minimalism), but the AIRism line of shirts opened up a whole new line of appreciation. As products, the shirts really deliver an unrivaled desirable experience: fabric that breathes well, stretches, feels smooth and stay dry. It’s safe to say the shirts became my essentials in Taiwan, and I’ve stuck with them since.
