HI I’m AmmarWhat is fabric GSM?and what’s the best cotton fabric types do i need for high quality but practical tshirts?
Ammar: GSM refers to Grams per Square Meter and is used to determine the relative weight of a fabric.
High quality t-shirts are made from a knitted fine cotton; The finer the cotton, the nicer the shirt.
Oooooo……Loaded question. Best type of cotton T-shirt material is actually a preference. Which do you prefer? Long lasting, durability, comfort, feel, texture, color fastness? All of the above? The general preferred T-shirt material for color fastness and wearability has been a blend of cotton and polyester. The blend percentage varies slightly. These days T-shirt materials are being produced that are very thin and light weight but they can be seen through a little and they can be destroyed rather quickly. A more precise question you might ask is what quality do you want for you end product? Then go from there. My preference is shifting, I tend to like a newer cotton/lycra/rayon blended knit. It has a drape to it but stays cool and stretches so is flattering and comfortable. Hope this helps.
Andy i would like to ask you that just tell me at what GSM the t shirt will be quite best, i’ve seen at many places that somewhere it is single jersey 135 GSM or somewhere there is 160/200 GSM or 150 and so on….
so my question to you is that at what GSM i would prefer that is being not much expensive to me neighter goes cheap tell me the moderate value.
