Concept of Stretch in Fabric

oe

The woven and denim garment in general has almost nil stretch making the garment less comfortable and rigid as compared to knit garments, whereas knit garment has a property of de-shaping over a period of use making it less attractive and more prone to deforming as compared to woven garments.

By adding INVIYA® – bare spandex to both woven and knit category of fabrics, woven and denim garments become stretchable and knit garments retains its shape with longer period of use, thus adding value to the entire range of garments.

The entire notion of adding bare spandex to the core yarn of a fabric is to enhance the below properties of the final fabric:

  • Stretchability
  • Drape – gives good drape
  • Good Stretch recovery
  • Wrinkle resistance

 With the more active lifestyle and changing requirement in everyday life it is required more than ever to have a fabric which will not only compliment these conditions but also enhances our daily experience of clothing.

Introduction of stretch in fabric has taken a new turn with different variants of bare spandex yarn used. For example: to make fabric Chlorine resistant – we use chlorine resistant spandex in core so that it doesn’t deteriorate with prolonged exposure to water, scented/ anti-odor bare  spandex is used to eliminate any kind of odor produced by prolonged use of  the end garment in high physical activity etc.

Thus, use of spandex in core of the fabric has not only made the fabrics we use more compatible to our daily lifestyle but in many ways enhanced the way we live in 21st century.

Slacks have been around since ages, they are nothing but formal pants that can be worn without complete formal attire. By this we mean that you can wear a pair of slacks with a blouse or even t-shirt and go to work (if your office code allows you to wear t-shirts, that is) and not have to top it off with a blazer or a formal jacket. Yes, it will still be counted as formal bottom wear.

Slacks may be made of stretch fabric or non-stretch fabric, depending on where you buy it or get it tailored from.

We always suggest getting bottom wear for office that stretches because it is meant to be worn for longer hours and it helps if there is room for moving around freely with stretch. In the case of slacks we highly recommend ones made with stretch fabric because they are generally tailored for a snug fit.

So the next time you feel like dressing formal but with spunk, just put on a pair of slacks made with stretch fabric and rock a meeting, presentation, interview or just about anything!
