Pilot shirts are broadly categorised into 2 fabric types, cotton blended and 100% cotton.
Cotton blended fabric is a composition of 50% cotton & 50% polyester. This unique blend gives equal properties of both the material to the shirt, ie. cotton makes it comfortable to wear by allowing the body to breath, where as poly resists creasing and makes it easy to iron.
A closer look of the fabric will reveal tiny openings all over the surface. These 'air pockets' facilitate ventilation and helps in keeping the body cool.
Unlike other uniform makers, our fabric is thin, light weight but dense, thus much more softer and comfortable to use. Keeping in mind the high usage, it is specially created to have a longer lasting whiteness. The shirt brightens further wash after wash and gives a distinct glow under natural sunlight.
Egyptian cotton is considered to be of the best quality. Its long and fluffy staples makes the fabric smooth and soft. 2 fold (2 ply) cotton fabrics are made from 2 yarns twisted into 1. This twist creates tension in the yarn which makes the fabric wrinkle resistant.
Quality of cotton fabric differs by its thickness which is defined by the type of yarn. For instance 80's yarn is thicker than 120's thus 2 fold 80's fabric is thicker/heavier than 120's. Finer/thinner the fabric, denser is its weave, making it more pricey.
