These fabrics can be used as the second or base layer.
They are mostly woven and can have either a light or heavy quality. They can be elastic but also have to have functional properties such as quick dry, water repellant or breathable. They are used in sport shirts and pants for outdoor, hiking, climbing, biking, ski touring, fitness, and yoga.

Shirt & Pants April 2018

The fabric defines the new look for functional shirts. Plaids are big, but subtle and in mostly pastel colors. Natural fibres like Tencel and linen are on the rise. Many shirt fabrics now come as solids with beautiful structures and natural feel. Pant fabrics are very fine, but also durable, abrasion resistant, and always elastic  including compression fabrics. Even the lightest grades are abrasion resistant thanks to Cordura; the denim look is important and now even available in combination with merino wool.

Shirt & Pants November 2017

As result of the last Focus Topic in May, many biodegradable fabrics are now appearing among the materials for trousers. New techniques such as zonal weaving are making their mark. You will find lots of stretch and some compressive grades for fitness and athleisure, all fashionably interpreted as woven or knit denim, or with silicon treated seams for a better grip. Fabrics for the shirts are very lightweight and elastic and combine natural fibres with either recycled or biopolymer-based synthetics.
