Fabric type

Good afternoon Fabrics,

I would like to ask for advice. I am 6.5 feet long, relatively slim and have great problems to find fitting trousers. I am not in any way asscociated with the fashion or clothing environmet. I just decided to have a custom-made chinos but the fabrics I was offered were none of my interest (poor quality, patterns, polyester included, etc.). I am looking for something similiar to bonobos .com oxford or washed chinos unicolor fabric in navy blue, grey, beige or sand. It must be organic 100% cotton and durable for every day wearing.

I have no idea what kind of fabrics are OK to use for chinos- there are thousands of 100% cotton and usage is not always clear from description.

I would be very thankful for your advice where to find the fabrics with reasonable prices (best online).

Many thanks,

    Hi Lucas,
    First of all if you really want your chinos durable, long lasting and wrinkle free so they stay stylish, don’t go 100% cotton. A good quality blend is really what you want. It will reduce wear spots in the knees and makebth buttox not sag quite so soon. Look for something in the 65% cotton, 35% polyester, and 5% lycra. With this mix the recovery of the fabric after wearing and then washing is much better. You should also consider rayon a very breathable and soft alternative to cotton. With this your fabric choises and colors should increase a very great deal. All of which you can order here on fabrics.net or look at your local fabric stores. Check the ops of the bolts for fiber content. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprized at the selections. Good luck.
