I live on a marshy island in Maryland where the summer dew point often averages 70 F. I'm looking for fabric that performs well in the humidity, especially during humid dog walks and steamy steamed crab feasts. Is ramienorth or ramielight better for this? Should I just wear runweight tees? What about sun protection?
A bunch of ramie stuff is about to hit next Tuesday and I am seeking some guidance. I do not own any ramie clothing (I just received a used Ramielust t-shirt in black today from Grailed but I have not worn it yet) and I'm wondering what colors and items to buy.
My work and daily attire is casual, or maybe business casual, tops. I can get away with wearing a solid tee or a henley or a casual button-up shirt. I'm thinking I'd like to try some ramie shirts for summer work clothes. My questions are:
What colors are best for masking sweat? I sweat a lot and I usually wear all-black, so I'm almost certainly going to purchase a black Ramienorth short sleeve. The Ramienorth Pivo... keep reading on reddit ➡

I've seen some sites claim that ramie has up to 3x the tensile strength of hemp. Does anyone here know the lowdown on this?
Please hit me if anyone has it
Catching up with one of my favourite Japanese denim brands and noticed this as part of their 40th anniversary releases: a 100% ramie aloha shirt with some very nice details:
Apparently "uses traditional kimono Nassen dyeing techniques whereby the ink is applied directly to the fabric a similar process to silk screen printing." Not cheap but very cool!
Light blue. Asking $50. Bought off someone else. WTF marks. I washed it once, but haven’t worn it. Labeled medium, but fits like an XL or possibly XXL. I underestimated how oversized the cut is, and it’s just not my style.
I haven't measured yet, but my new Ramienorth Pivots feel about an inch longer in the sleeve than my Northern Ramie from last year.
Is it possible that, even though the Ramienorth is garment dyed too, that there's more shrinkage to achieve? It could be the fabric origin, but this ramie feels rougher and less hairy than last year's Northern Ramie. If it's the same fabric, I wonder if they dialed back the harshness of the wash because last year's were much softer and more broken in.
So that has me wondering if I could expect the sleeves to shrink down to last year's measurements.
Anyone notice the same thing?
I’m curious if there’s anyone on here that actually bought one, I want to find out how it’s held up so far.
I’d love to pick up a couple but I’m slightly worried about the longevity of the raw cut compared to the standard tee. Thanks!

I got a ramielust tshirt and a ramielight mojave short sleeve shirt. Both in the same size (Medium).
The shirt is 2 inches shorter than the tshirt. I know both have been calibrated for shrinkage. Will they shrink the same amount or will the shirt shrink less than the tshirt?
The reason I'm asking is the tshirt definitely feels a few inches too long so I'm looking forward to it shrinking. The shirt, on the other hand, is almost about the right size. If it shrank 2 inches it would probably be too short.
I think a combo of either Ramie button-ups with the Futureworks would make for an ideal summer package, similar to the linen pivot combo from last year.
With the release of a new photoshoot featuring the recent drop of Depop bandanas, we also have a crop of new clothes ripe for speculation.
Image 1 & 2
Two shirts, one of which I'd guess is a Ramielight Button-down Short Sleeve with a print on the back. The one underneath is mysterious. It seems to have a half-sleeve and some kind of fabric fold around the neck, maybe a cowl-neck. In the second photo, I'm seeing what look like snaps on the back of the collar? I'm guessing the shorts are UU Easy Shorts.
There's a vest! A vest with a zip front, slash pockets, and patch pockets. This, I believe, is a Stronglinen vest. Looks really cool, and looks like it'll cost $500. Underneath, there's what I believe is the camp-collar shirt, due to its spread. Notice also the split-curved hem. On the left, looks like layered ramielust and some kind of wove... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’ve read a lot of praises for the RL in hot/humid weather, but I’m struggling to find any experiences with layering or general use in the cold.
Is the material any more or less comfortable when held closer to the skin by a coat, sweater, or jacket? Does it retain core heat well on its own?
I recently flew from snowy Vancouver to humid Bangkok and didn’t have a good universal base. Was Ramie the secret to this journey? Should I even bother taking a Ramielust shirt on my next trip?
I know someone received one of these in a wtf purchase. They sold awful and were pulled from the website in a heartbeat. I thought it was cool but not at the listed price. Let me know if you'd like to sell your XS one. Offering $100 shipped. Thanks.
I'll be in Seoul for a week in April and one of my bucket list items is to pick up some fabric to take home with me and make into Pojagi style quilting window hangings. I have two questions regarding this:

WARNING: LONG POST, SCROLL TO BOTTOM FOR FINAL THOUGHTS AND PICS.
It's hot af down where I'm at and I decided to test out one of the cheaper Ramielust alternatives that came up in this thread. It's a smallish, I'm guessing boutique(?) store out of Singapore called Ashenfeld Paris.
Ordering and cost:
I'm not going to lie, this shit was sloooowww to get here, I wasn't in a hurry and they explicitly state it'll take up to 10 business days to arrive after processing. So no biggie.
7/23: Received shipping confirmation and tracking number
So yeah, two weeks to arrive or 10 business days pretty much, they use a website called Simplypost and ship via DHL. Full breakdown here: https://imgur.com/a/NJoIVM3

Ordered a new Ramie pivot in both small and medium. I am hilariously in between sizes, Small is perfect now but will be too snug if it shrinks. Medium a little billowy now.
From experience, what kind of shrinkage, if any, should I account for? Both with initial washes and over time.
There are injected linen pants so why not dreamweight/openweight/ramie pants?
this is really a trojan/trick question to discuss what features y'all want for summer pants. Do you really need your pants to be opaque (
dreamweight/openweight/ramie)? Durable (futureworks)? Lightweight (ultra ultra)? Breathable (linen)? All of the above + water resistant (??)
Can we all ditch pants and switch to
skirts kilts please?

Hey guys. Going to buy one of these shirts for a summer spent primarily in Southern Europe. Which one to go for?
An experimental free flowing and intentionally oversized short sleeve shirt in a lightweight ramie weave. Button front with a front chest pocket and perfect in hot and humid conditions.
A button down cheat code for the hot and humid. 200gsm of garment dyed ramie. Ramie pulls moisture and heat away from the body better than just about anything while maintaining an open structure for superior breathability.

I'm looking for something that'll hold up to traveling with little upkeep, be breathable when moving a lot, and perhaps even working out. I've read that the Ramie isn't odor resistant, so perhaps that discards it, but I've never owned an Outlier, or even Merino t-shirt for that matter, so I'd like to solicit some opinions and advice. Thanks
I didn't realize how much I wanted this until stepping out for a run today.
About 60 Fahrenheit and very comfortable, but full sun which my skin simply doesn't care for. I avoid sunblock as much as possible, especially during workouts. In the past I've used bandanas and towels around the neck, but man would I appreciate the Snap Bandana form applied to a lightweight, breathable and durable fabric. Something you could soak with water before heading out on the really hot days. Good coverage for the back of the neck which is a pain point for sun exposure. Lightweight and relatively easy to handle/adjust/carry along if needed.
In general I hope there's iteration on the Snap Bandana form, I love it but think the implementation could be improved. I love and use both the Alphacharge and Strongwool regularly, but a summerweight iteration would really round out my keep-the-sun-off-my-skin kit.
This got lost in the other thread: WTS/WTT Exp 087 - Northern Light Ramie Short Sleeve size S in GD Light Blue. New, in bag. Was part of WTF, but has no red dot.
Asking $65 shipped within the con US. Alternatively, things I'm looking for: doublefine cardigans in S, ramielust tees in XS, Feral Merino LS in Larger, 148 Futurecharge Qzip in S, anything else that's cool; HMU with your ideas. (Willing to add cash, obviously.)
After a sweaty morning walk, I took off my Ramie Pivot and changed into a t shirt to let it dry. Some time later when putting it back on, I noticed this stain on my shoulder. It matches perfectly with where my backpack straps were. Would intense sweat cause a bleached-out looking stain like this? I did have moisturizer on my body, but no other chemicals, and I'm not seeing similar stainage anywhere else. Thanks for any advice.
Just got the NLR in light blue. I sized down 2 sizes to an XS. It fits in the shoulders about like a medium, but still a little boxy in the body. The sleeves are also still long, but not too narrow, which was a concern. I like the fit and think I’m gonna keep it. This fabric is absolutely amazing. Light and open but slightly less opaque than Breezy Linen. Also feels slightly softer out of the box than linen. I do find the extra wide placket a little odd as it is visible on such a light color. I hope they maintain a supply of this fabric as I would love other options, especially a long sleeve pivot. Also, it will be a little short sized down if you are 6’ or taller. Works for me at 5’10”, but just barely. I’ll try to post pics tomorrow.
