Be the focus of lavishing attention as people marvel at the splendor of Egyptian cotton in a shirt in all its full glory.
So what makes Egyptian cotton take its place at the pinnacle of fabric greatness?
Well, its long fibers spell the difference compared to other cotton variants in the world. It is said that Egypt, because of its highly humid climate and rich soil, particularly that along the Nile River, contributes to the growing of long cotton fibers, which puts Egyptian cotton under the “ELS” or “Extra Long Staple” category or from 1 ½ to 2 ¼ inches long. Their extraordinary length means it can be spun into a very fine thread, which makes it even more soft and shimmering, yet very robust and solid.
Add to that the fact that Egyptian cotton has a higher thread count, which determines the number of cotton threads woven lengthwise and widthwise in every fabric inch. Cotton experts say that a 200 thread count means it has good quality. But don’t be misled; a fabric sheet with a 200-thread count of any type of cotton is different from a sheet with 200-thread count Egyptian cotton. Though the count may be similar, the sheet made of Egyptian cotton is definitely silky and supple. And Egyptian cotton with an even higher thread count makes it even more desirable for those who value exquisite wear.
Experts also say that Egyptian cotton has “breathing” qualities also because of the high thread count. This means it shields off heat, which leads to less sweat. Imagine going out on a hot summer day yet you feel less sticky and clammy.
Some people also say that clothing made of Egyptian cotton is truly superior compared to other fabrics because of its liquid-absorption qualities, particularly when dyeing it compared to other cotton products. The colors are supposed to last longer and become fade-resistant and of course, the softness is always present.
Want to know if you’re buying clothes made of true Egyptian cotton? It should look and feel a little firm and rigid once you take it out of the package. But of course once you wash it and the more you use it, the fabric becomes smoother, softer, pliable and more velvety to the feel and less prone to wrinkles.
Now that’s Egyptian cotton, and that’s what you’ll get and feel while wearing GQ International shirts crafted using this globally renowned cotton type, touted as the most expensive yet über lush and opulent cotton in the world.
