Topic: Straitjacket and Sweat

I haven't done a straitjacket escape for several years, but added it to a show I did last week for a teen boy's birthday. In the past, there's never been any problems doing the escape, but this time was a bit different. Because it was so hot in the room, I was sweating by the time of the last effect, which was the jacket. I soon discovered that it was a bit more difficult to do the escape, since I had trouble getting my right arm out. The sweat was making it cling more to the jacket material.

This isn't something I've encountered before. Any tips about this? Perhaps wear a shirt with long sleeves instead of a t-shirt?
