Ron McPherson, President and CEO of Antigua, explains the company's thinking in this short video:
I reviewed the Antigua Spring Collection earlier, but hadn't tried the Desert Dry Performance Cotton at that time. I have now, and can say that I found it very comfortable and almost retro in the way it feels against the skin -- Retro as in what golf shirts used to feel like before they started making them out of plastic. Maybe I'm getting too particular in my old age, but I'll leave that conclusion up to you. By the way, I don't wear Spandex when I ride my bike, either.
