Should you choose cotton or linen?

Two of the most common fabrics in the world are cotton and linen, although they are subtly different. All are produced from real plant fibres, but the cotton plant makes cotton and the flax plant makes linen. It is still used today in high line fashion products such as Ralph Lauren Menswear that you can get from EJ Menswear.

Here are the main distinctions between linen and cotton.

Longevity.

Linen is one of the best natural fibres in the world. It was also used to produce paper money to make it last longer.

Cotton is often very durable, but linen is heavier and appears to be a fibre that is more durable.

Insulating characteristics

Linen is a natural insulator, which,  since the fibres are hollow, can surprise some people. This ensures that air automatically flows through them so that you can keep one layer cold. Lay the linen down to create a natural insulator if you want to stay warm.

Cotton is similar; cotton can be layered to keep warm, but it is breathable since the fibre is also raw. You need more than one layer for insulation.

The Absorption of Moisture

Cotton and linen are also natural fibres that absorb water rapidly, but linen is more absorbent and is also referred to as the “wicking fibre of nature”. It can also obtain up to 20 percent moisture so it’s great for humid conditions. This is why towels and dressing robes are also made from linen.

Stylish accessories all men should own

Accessories are a great way of changing an outfit from a formal one to something that is more casual as well as giving you an almost endless list of options when it comes to styling up your outfit. You can take an item from the Calvin Klein Menswear that you can find from places such as EJ Menswear and add a number of different accessories like the ones that are mentioned below and give yourself any number of different looks.

Hats – a hat doesn’t have to just be a practical way of keeping your head warm in the autumn and winter months. It can be a conscious fashion choice that you make. There are numerous different hat styles including the standard beanie, the flat cap and the trusted baseball cap which itself can be worn in a number of different ways.

 

Glasses – if your eyesight requires you to wear glasses you can see this as an opportunity to style up your outfit. Glasses are now much more fashionable than they used to be and there are even a number of fashion houses that have developed glasses with their logos and names on the side. Of course if you don’t need glasses for your eyesight that doesn’t mean that you are left out of this particular fashion trend – sunglasses are also available in designer and non designer stylings.

Bracelets – whilst wearing a shirt to work might mean that wearing a necklace as a fashion statement is slightly redundant, the bracelet is a great option as it can be tucked away underneath your cuffs if needed and left out on display if not. There are a number of different bracelet styles that you can choose from include those made from precious metals and those made using real and fake leather bands.
