David Hyde Apparel — a label founded by two University of Central Florida graduates, addresses the problem of humidity in the summer with a performance dress shirt. Sleek and professional, the product is advertised to be completely sweat- and spill-proof. For the design of the piece, David Hyde Apparel utilizes an interesting approach. Harnessing "two factorial components," the brand finds a multi-fold solution to sweat stains.
Firstly, the lightweight exterior of the performance dress shirt is carefully treated with an eco-friendly and organic hydrophobic solution that actively repels liquids. Moreover, the piece is made to be odor-free. Secondly, David Hyde Apparel comes up with patent-pending patches that are placed in high-sweat areas on the inside of the performance shirt. This helps the piece dry at an accelerated rate of 2.5.
