I've seen modern stuff to keep one WARM that is very good. I haven't seen anything for HOT weather that matches a loose fitting cotton shirt - and hot weather is the subject of this thread. I don't know about pants - I'll stick to my $15 Wrangler jeans. I've worn them in 120 deg heat, and they are good enough for that.
And cotton socks in hot weather feel better on my feet than any modern fabric substitute I've tried. And yes, I've worn them all day long in the desert, and for running, and inside my cowboy boots.
I've tried Under Armor hot weather gear, and it feels awful.
