    I've done some searching around and thought there was a thread awhile back on a good source for Pima cotton but cannot seem to locate it.

    I'm looking for a source of Pima or ELS cotton that is knit, such as used for undershirts. Does anybody out there have a source? The few online places I found just do not seem to have the correct thing. Some very highly regarded undershirts, such as those made by Zimmerli, Hanro and Suspel, may use any range of fabrics from 100% cotton to blends such as 93% cotton, 6% modal, etc.

    Anybody out there know where I can get this kind of stuff?

    Thanks in advance,
    Sean Paul

    Thanks for the reply, Carl. So you're saying that whatever mill(s) supply these fabrics to the above mentioned companies will not sell their cloth wholesale to the public or even wholesale to a fabric supplier such as New York Fashion Center Fabrics?
