    What is the best cotton available for Men shirt?

    I have been buying lots of fabrics from many different suppliers. Some cost 30usd per yard, some only 4usd per yard, and some 50usd.

    They all just said they were 100% cotton.

    So far, I have been buying a lot of shirts from designer labels. Some have good quality fabrics, while some are amazingly overpriced.

    I am guessing that sea island cotton is one of the best, and also superior to Egyptian cotton.

    But where exactly to buy them, and what brands are using?

    At the moment, I am working in this textile field and found many things to be very similar in quality, but big gap in pricing.

    I´ve been told those two taht you mention as the best.

    But personally I like Swiss popeline and some italian triple rittorto as more of my taste.

    I guess both, I I have seen those two fabrics mainly with stripes but also plain. I guess it doesn´t matter.

    The cotton was thin and easy to iron. And a very very elegant posse.
