Suggestion from wife (who cant iron BTW)

Iron
Put on hanger
Hook hanger on bike helmet

Hey who know's, sounds like it might actually work, too bad about the image though.....

All the replies are sensible.
I have found travel shirts eg Kathmandu good cos they can handle being folded + dont crease + are quick drying non iron.

The FreshMax 100% cotton shirt that doesn't show sweat patches at GBP50 a pop

Here's a review from the UK Mirror: Shows no sweat but it does smell......

CYCLING
This will do it, surely. I take to my bike and pedal to a meeting. On arrival, I check my appearance in a shop window to see if I'm starting to look like I spent the past hour in a sauna. But amazingly, thanks to the shirt I'm not letting myself down in a soggy, sweaty shirt. Can't say the same for the smell though - I am starting to pong a bit.

+1 for travel and adventure wear shirts for ease of use and less visible sweaty patches. I have one that is marvellous to wear to work in summer from Katmandu and one by Mountain Hardware that wicks well and always looks very 'sharp'.

Doesn't sound like the cotton shirts I know. They usually are much better than synthetics for pong. If you really want pong-free shirts get some lightweight merino. Don't know about its boardroom value though :mrgreen:

Supposedly it "spreads the sweat" so the moisture is still there but it doesn't show :?: Difficult if someone decides to touch that shirt post-exercise.
