What is your favorite blends and why?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I'm very interested in understanding what people love about denim.  I personally love a 98% cotton and 2% Lycra or stretch. You still get the comfort without compromising that hardy denim look we all love! They don't shrink as much either. Especially when buying raw selvage. They just FEEL better!

I look forward to learning about you!

Thanks Octavio

I agree, I probably like a cotton w/smaller lycra blend. some cotton/tencel blends are too thin, in my opinion.

It's just the two of us... I love learning and talking about denim but doesn't seem to be of interest to anyone but us. lol I love tencel, such a wonderful fabric but you're right it does work with denim. Tee yes, denim no. I have piles and piles of denim jeans and swatches. so many blends, including large % of poly. Yuk Yuk... they just don't FEEL like the denim I grew up with. There's something so retro about hardy, almost rough denim. And for womens jeans they've taken it to a whole new level of thin/light weight which is beautiful and so flattering on, most of the time. For men...I think staying above a 10 oz weight is preferable. what do you think? 

thank you for being a part of my thread. I will find a median  here that will engage more people. I have to put some thought into it. and comb over everything again that is appealing to everyone. 

thank you
