Sorry, I should be more helpful... It's most likely to be a blend of some sort, perhaps rayon, silk, cotton, wool, who knows... To me, it looks like the fabric that some tailored shorts are sometimes made from.

By the way, does anybody know who the jacket is by?? It's so hot!! I want one for my man.

Judging from the texture, this could also be washed moleskin or wool flannel.

Anyone have a definitive answer or perhaps reasoning behind their answers. I've got 3 people saying 3 different types of materials.

So, how can you tell from the pictures, other than giving a guess? Even if this was higher resolution, how could you be 100% sure about the fabric composition?!

Cotton gabardine usually is 100% cotton the only difference is that-- it is made with a twill weave. It is a blend of tightly interwoven filling that can be cotton, wool, silk, rayon(tree cellulose), wool, or nylon thats unseen from the back. Sort of like a doubleface. The finnish is a water repalent microfibre. Gabardine is most commonly used in men's suits and evening shirts.

Identify Fabrics/Textiles
Hi,

I was just wondering what is the highest quality cotton fabric available ? Egyptian or Pima?

Also, does anyone know if the thread count goes higher than 1500 for cotton?

And finally, pictured below is a Dior Homme shirt made by Hedi Slimane. It is 100%, yet is has a shine to it. Is that becasue it is cotton sateen?

Well... As far as the sheen is concerned, mercerised cotton usually has a luster to it. The collar/plaque is obviously satiny because it is satin weave, I suppose.

And as always, higher quality wool, cotton etc. in a similar yarn/weave will be more lustruous than lower quality because the fibers are thinner, longer and smoother.
