Fabric Quality

Biased Cut only uses 100% cotton fabrics that are above 80 thread count, double-ply, and imported from Japan or Europe

100% cotton fabric because…
it is the ideal fabric for button-down shirts.  While some synthetic blends may be more resistant to wrinkles, cotton is more durable, breathes better, and has a finer and more vibrant finish.  Translate that into long-lasting, comfortable luxury, and we will gladly spend an extra 90 seconds with the steamer, if necessary.

80 and above thread count because…
it means a higher quality shirt fabric.  Thread count refers to the number of threads per inch – and all else being equal, the higher the count means the more luxurious the fabric.  While all Biased Cut custom shirts have thread counts of 80 or above, most are at least 100.

Two-ply yarns because…
they create stronger fabric.  “Ply” refers to the number of yarns per thread, so two-ply yarns are two interwoven yarns in a thread.  This accounts for a higher quality and more compact fabric than one made of single-ply yarns. As such, it is easy to misconceive thread count as the only indicator of fabric quality – factors like yarns, thread and weave play their equal parts.  A piece of fabric with 120 thread count single-ply does not necessarily have a better quality than a fabric with 80 thread count double ply.

From Japan and Europe because…
like almost any other industry, the textile industry requires experience, design, and skilled labor.  Europe and Japan are renowned for their style and quality of shirting fabrics for these exact reasons.  Biased Cut constantly strives to locate fabric mills in Europe and Japan to offer our customers fabrics with up-to-date styles while maintaining high standards of quality.
