I often see clothing, especially pants, that have a good fit and otherwise look good, but have a percentage polyester. Is this always an indicator of bad quality, or is there a legitimate reason for slacks to be 30% polyester?

 

For example:

Although I've answered no, I might buy something like gym clothes with polyester content but definitely nothing formal or semiformal.

No. While I am sure that there may be an exception or two somewhere, polyester tends to be a mark of cheap and not well made clothing.

I broke my polyester boycott to buy a football ("soccer") shirt last summer. After 5 minutes of running about, I was reminded why I began avoiding polyester in the first place. Wicking be damned.

As I stated in another thread...I wear 100% polyester wranglers and Levi's with cowboy boots...they cut a long and lean shilouette...

Only for the meek and timid...I come from ranch people and they were worn a ton growing up for semi formal occasions like parties or baptisms and the like.

 

I have a throwback narco-chic vibe I go for on Friday's and the weekend's...it works.   Not everything has to be Eurocentric or WASP-y to be cool or stylish, know what I mean?

I often forget the narcochic carries a considerable amount of cachet.

I'm provincial.

As am I...which is why I wear the polyester pants and wear cowboy boots...as far as cachet is concerned...before the advent of narco-culture the style was ramcho-chic...the narcos co-opted the look and it became fashionable in the 90's...they have gotten away from it and now love Ed Hardy...more power to 'em...but I digress, I never said it was widely appreciated...but I dig it, and so do a certain segment of American immigrants...my grandfather dressed that way and so did my father...and they were stylish peacocks...I admire their balls, their success, and their style...that's all there is to it.
