This is a nylon surf shirt from HANGTEN from c.1970…..probably sold with board shorts as set-up.

My personal preference is nylon over polyester…..why? just feel better to me….I still like poly though.

United States was poly paradise since late 60s through a decade or so, but when I started living in NYC in late 80s, it was still not easy to find all-cotton socks, sweatshirt…..

Here’s ours….

We have made some nylon shirts in the past…..and these are our current models.

It’s an interesting item under not- so-humid situation….say, like perforated suede….especially on summer nights.
