The Original Sports Fabric
It’s well known that Linen is the original sports fabric, it's likely that sports didn’t even exist before linen; everything had to be played for keeps, blood in blood out stakes. Conan The Barbarian stakes, pit fighting stakes; all done while wearing hinds, furs, or some other form of repurposed animal skin. What we do know is that when sports started popping on the historical record, in archeological digs, on Egyptian frescos the competitors were clothed and they were clothed in linen. Being a linen advocate is tricky, hardcore synthetic advocates will scoff and call you a luddite; they’ll readily point that compared to the wicking and osmotic properties of modern synthetics linen is threadbare. They may be right, but let me ask you this, did Rocky lose to Ivan Drago? Ivan Drago had the best coaches and training facilities, the best drugs and we learned in the collector’s edition that he was the product of a Soviet eugenics program but still he lost to Rocky, why? Heart, soul, stupidity; all of these and more. That’s linen, that’s why linen, the original sports fabric, is still the number one fabric of choice for the discerning athlete. That’s why Tourists choose Linen.
