The newest addition to the Suitsupply shirt collection is the Egyptian Cotton. These shirts are only €59,- and are available in multiple prints. Before you check out their website, read&learn about the Egyptian Cotton here on Suitsociety.com
The Egyptian Cotton plant was originally grown in the Nile basin of Egypt and was later brought to the Western states of the US in the beginning of the twentieth century. In the western world, Egyptian Cotton was very popular for luxury undergarments and fine dress goods. Especially the textile industry of the UK worked a lot with the fabric. The Egyptians themselves made their clothing from linen, a product of the flax plant.
A shirt made of Egyptian cotton represents a high quality compact yarn that allows more threads in warp and weft which makes the fabric stronger. It also creates a better recovery of the fabric, meaning less creases and pilling. Usually less creases means more synthetics, but not in this case. Furthermore, the finer threads will make the cotton feel less “hairy”, so you will get a nice, smooth fabric.
Great price/quality, that is what Suitsupply is all about. Check out their entire collection at www.suitsupply.com
