Brushed Cotton Shirts For Autumn And Winter

That time of year is upon us where each morning poses a challenge of deciding what to wear. Temperamental is the very nature of the season and so versatile wardrobe staples are a must. Thankfully we have brushed cotton - the adaptable answer to all our sartorial prayers.

What Is Brushed Cotton?

Brushed cotton is identifiable by its luxurious and comfortable nature which is extremely soft to the touch. It is essentially woven.

On the whole, one of the final steps in fabric production is to singe away any excess fibres to leave a smooth and pristine finish. However, brushed cotton goes through a different process in which the surplus fibres are instead brushed in order to exaggerate them, and consequently, their silky feel. This then results in a beautifully soft and smooth face side of the shirt which is reminiscent of fine wool.

Why Choose Brushed Cotton Shirts?

The attention to detail regarding the finesse of brushed cotton shirts just adds to both their allure and practicality. Soft to the touch, and with thickness perfect for retaining their shape, brushed cotton shirts are extremely comfortable and bring an extra layer of warmth during the colder months. The fabric has a grand texture like cashmere, yet is entirely cotton so is durable and dependable.
