The quality of a shirt depends mostly on the fabric, and a high-grade shirt must be made of a good fabric, which is always thin and elegant. Which fabric is better for the shirt? What are the advantages and disadvantages of different fabrics? Find the answers in the following.


1. Cotton shirts

Composition: 100% cotton

Generally speaking, cotton fabric shirt has the advantage of high surface gloss, soft feel, good breathability and moisture absorption, which is comfortable to wear.

The disadvantage of pure cotton blouse is that it doesn't feel very smooth, and this fabric is easy to wrinkle and does not recover easily. But for women, they like the cotton materials as the sleep shirt which is very comfortable no matter short sleeve shirts or the long sleeve shirts.


2. Blended fabric shirts


a. Cotton polyester shirt

Composition: 60% cotton + 40% polyester

Cotton-polyester fabric features: cotton-polyester refers to the fabric blended with polyester and cotton fiber. Polyester is the main ingredient. 


b. Polyester cotton shirt

First of all, we have to distinguish between "polyester-cotton" and "cotton-polyester".

(1) "Polyester-cotton" fabric means that the composition of polyester accounts for more than 60%, and the composition of cotton is less than 40% and it’s also called TC.

(2) "Cotton-polyester" is the opposite, refers to the composition of cotton is more than 60%, polyester composition is less than 40%,  and it’s also called CVC.


c. Advantages: Polyester fibers are the most dominant type of synthetic fibers and are known as "polyester fibers". The blended fabric shirt is firm and elastic and it’s the most wrinkle resistant of all fibers. Which is heat and light resistant, and has a good setting performance, not easily stained or discolored.


d. Disadvantages: Blended fabric shirt is strong affinity for oil, easy to adsorb oil and easy to produce static electricity and adsorb dust during the wearing that’s difficult to wash and can not be ironed with high temperature and boiling water soaking. It has poor moisture absorption and permeability, moisture absorption rate is 0.4%, easy to gather static electricity which needs to dye under high pressure. It is not as comfortable to wear as cotton.

3. 100% chemical fiber shirts 


Composition: 100% chemical fiber

Chemical fiber shirt is a textile that uses polymer compounds as raw materials to make fibers. They have bright colors, soft texture, overhanging, smooth and comfortable features in common.

Their disadvantages are abrasion resistance, heat resistance, moisture absorption, poor breathability, easily deformed by heat and easily generate static electricity. Although it can be used to make all kinds of clothing, it is not high grade and not very elegant. As far as shirts are concerned, 100% chemical fiber fabric shirt means cheap and low grade. If we are in business occasion, please don’t wear this material blouses, especially for women. Even if the shirt is of famous brand such as Versace shirt, Gucci blouses etc. 


Special applications: However, some types of chemical fiber fabrics have some unique characteristics, such as high elasticity, high breathability and water resistance, high gloss, high abrasion resistance, etc., so pure chemical fiber fabrics are also used in special-purpose shirts, such as performance costume shirt that needs gloss, dance wear blouses that needs elasticity, outdoor wear shirts that needs waterproof, etc..
