Would anyone explain what are the differences and benefits of one over the other (for shirt)? M. Colban is coming to BG next month and I'm thinking of an order. Thanks.

I just purchased a white sea island cotton shirt from jantzen and it seems this shirt is nearly see thru compared to my other shirts. Is this just the nature of sea island cotton?
Sea Island cotton is a pretty amorphous term. Many shirtmakers sell a Sea Island quality which is a shirt with a high yarn number. There is a Sea Island brand of cotton made from cotton grown in the West Indies. I am fairly certain that good quality cotton from other sources -- including Egypt -- can equal or surpass it.
True Sea Island cotton may no longer exist.
