100% Cotton Shirts

100% Cotton ShirtsTuxedo shirts generally come in two basic fabrics including a poly/cotton blend and 100-percent cotton, and nothing can quite compare to the feel of pure cotton. When you want the ultimate in comfort when wearing a tuxedo shirt, the 100-percent cotton variety is the tuxedo shirt you’ll want to choose. Tuxedo shirts that are made of 100% cotton tend to be more expensive than the poly/cotton blends, but they also tend to fit better and be a lot more comfortable.

Because tuxedo shirts are the item of apparel that is closest to the skin, comfort is of extreme importance. The last thing you want to be worrying about when you are at a formal event is how uncomfortable your shirt is making you feel. Because of this, 100% cotton tuxedo shirts are a favorite among the comfort-conscious consumers of the men’s formal wear fashion world. However, you get what you pay for and you will wind up paying about twice as much to be wearing this fabric, so for those who are budget minded, tuxedo shirts made of this cotton might be out of reach.

Whether you’re looking for wing-tip collar tuxedo shirts or lay-down collar tuxedo shirts, each of these shirt styles is available in a 100% cotton material. The only down side to cotton tuxedo shirts is that they require more care than poly/cotton shirts, and also tend to wrinkle more. Otherwise, 100% cotton tuxedo shirts tend to be the refined gentleman’s shirt of choice.

While it’s true that 100% cotton tuxedo shirts are more expensive then the poly/cotton blends, that does not mean that you can’t find excellent deals that will allow you to wear this type of shirt for a reasonable price. You can actually find 100% cotton tuxedo shirts for less than forty dollars from many online retailers.

When you’re shopping for cotton tuxedo shirts, you’ll need to decide whether you need a two-ply shirt or a one-ply shirt. Since 100-percent cotton tuxedo shirts are heavier than their poly/cotton blend counterparts, you’ll want the lighter ply if you’re going to be wearing your tuxedo in hot or humid weather. The single-ply 100-percent tuxedo shirts are also less expensive than the 2-ply tuxedo shirts.

If you do decide to go with a 100-percent cotton tuxedo shirt, there are some things that you will want to remember. Cotton is a natural fabric, and as such it should be noted that 100-percent cotton tuxedo shirts are more delicate than the poly/cotton blends. Because of this, it is important to take care when laundering or pressing a cotton tuxedo shirt to make sure that your investment lasts. It is also important to note that cotton shrinks. Most tuxedo shirts are made with pre-shrunk cotton, but you’ll want to double check to make sure that your shirt doesn’t wind up shrinking on you.
