I wear these blouses year round horseback riding. they're cool enough in the hot summer and protect your forearms from sun. they do not lose their shape after years of many washes. the white one still looks like a dress shirt when I dress to ride, even tho my riding is casual. I love the white and light blue. I wish they'd come up with a light lemon yellow. I'm buying two more now, I've had my other ones about 5 years now.
