Jackets are not just style options but an essential gear. An undeniable staple that has been rocking the menswear for decades. Throughout the year, we noticed prominent changes as well as new innovation in regards to style, features, and construction. Since there are timeless additions, it is hard to decide which one we should pick for our daily purpose?
We already have leather jackets, but you not always wear it due to its heavy construction that does not stick well with hot weather conditions. There we have cotton jackets that are light and fit the purpose and also ensure you don’t get sweaty. I’m not comparing cotton with leather here, both are different material in terms of quality and functionality. Cotton is more summer-friendly which sort of replicates a leather outfit in its absence but still there is no match.
Since you probably want to know more about cotton jackets, we’re here to help you understand.
History of Cotton Fabric:
The fabric has been around in this world for more than 7000 years, dating back with the Greeks. It expended throughout the world after discovery made by Alexander the Great during 300 B.C., who noted that it is much comfortable fabric than wool. In the 18th century, the production expanded because various industries utilized heavy machinery as well as the workforce to produce cotton, but it was still not enough. The textile industries in Europe and North America saw a drastic fall during WW1, which is the reason why South Asia today leads in importing cotton fabric.
Advantages of Cotton Jacket:
The key feature is its weight. It is lightweight that works pretty well in every season, especially in summer times when the weather condition is hot and dry. In some regions, cotton fabric is not very populous, only stylish leather jackets due to warm and cold weather there. Here are five key advantages of wearing a cotton jacket.
The first thing that comes in mind for cotton fabric is comfortable. It is stretchable and soft enough for every type of skin. People with skin allergies can easily wear cotton, and what’s more, it is environmental friendly.
Cotton often has water and dust resistance, but that only depends on the quality of the fabric. Any jacket made of 100% cotton will offer resistant support.
Unlike leather jackets that cost more than $200, cotton fabric jackets are price low as $49, which is quite cheap.
Cotton naturally facilitates its wearer by absorbing sweat and water. The reason is the fiber that has a lot of space to carry water without ruining the structure. However, you may feel heaviness if the jacket is completely wet.
Styles of Cotton Jacket:
Bomber – one of the variations is bomber, which is a seasonal friendly option and literally lightweight. Letterman Jackets are the coolest styles athletic as well as casual purposes.
Parachute – another lightweight version is the parachute. It is a lightweight jacket and best for any regular commuter.
