It depends on what you are selling.

The normal t-shirts you wear every day, should be cotton or cotton blend.
Polyester is ideal in activewear, for performance reasons, which are difficult to explain in layman's terms.

Seems that most of the folks I know insist on cotton. Except for the ones that sweat a lot.

Advantage of poly? SUBLIMATION.


Polyester is just nasty for prolonged skin contact. It is the same material used for plastic bags and soda bottles. Actually, often recycled bottles do become fabric.

Athletes wear it, because it does not absorb water, and the Evaporation of sweat (mostly water) is an endothermic reaction. So it absorbs heat from the body.

Polyester however, does absorb the oily smelly odors in your sweat, which then become a permanent part of the fabric.
