I think rough thick fabrics tend to last longer than the smooth luxurious feeling fabrics. For example, my cheap oxford cloth shirts still look great after hard use. At Charvet I purposefully chose coarser and thicker fabric. The blue cotton I have is maybe 100s at best. Their fabric is unlabeled so it is a guess. The salesperson I was with couldn't tell me much about the different fabrics. Did you see Cromptons recent interview of Mr Colban? It's quite interesting.
