When most men go discount suit shopping, they generally think about color, cut, and fit. While these elements are important, men should also consider the different fabric options before making their final suit selection. Here’s a brief look at the various suit fabrics and their unique qualities:
- Wool: Wool is by far the most common suit fabric in the world. Wool suits are widely considered to be the longest-lasting, most comfortable, and most wrinkle-resistant suits available. Since wool can be dyed any color and woven into a number of different patterns, there are plenty of styles of wool suits to choose from. Wool suits are also very popular among modern businessmen because of their ability to efficiently absorb moisture.
- Cotton: Since cotton has long been a popular clothing fabric, it’s only natural for it to be used for men’s suits as well. Cotton’s breathable, moisture-absorbent qualities make it the ideal suit fabric for the Los Angeles summer. Since cotton is machine washable, it can also help you save on pricy dry cleaning bills.
- Linen: Simple, light, smooth—it’s hard to deny the cool style of a linen suit. Linen’s light weight also makes it another fine choice for the Los Angeles heat. However, linen suits are mostly made for casual occasions and wrinkle very easily.
- Flannel: Flannel has historically been one of the most common suit fabrics—particularly grey flannel. However, flannel has begun to decline in recent years because it doesn’t last as long nor breathe as well as wool. Flannel is also very heavy, making it even more unpopular in the Los Angeles area. Still, you can easily and comfortably wear a flannel suit during the winter.
