Different Materials for Different Uses: Explore Various Mens Shirt Made in Turkey

Shirts are considered to be one of the easiest ways to be presentable and comfortable among most, whether you are looking for a shirt to accompany you in a hot summer night or one that will dazzle attendees of a formal event - but did you know this is only true if you pay close attention to the material the shirt is made out of?

We know even a single day can have multiple moments that can benefit from wearing fabrics with special qualities, such as breathability, warmth or having an elegant style. Different use cases call for different designs and materials to be used as there are no definitive answers to all scenarios where one can find themselves in - and that is why we aim to work with dozens of materials reaching our factories from across the country and the world.

This week, we wanted to highlight some of the key materials that we use to design and produce our shirts and why we believe everyone can benefit from having all three of them available for their clients - or have them handy in their wardrobes!

3 Core Materials to Use in Shirts

Thanks to having lands that experience all four seasons, and experienced craftsmen with cultural background to work with all types of materials, Turkey is more than able to craft shirts from some of the more popular materials.

Cotton: One of the oldest materials that has been consistently used to produce any type of garments, cotton still reigns supreme when it comes to designing and producing top quality shirts!

Cotton is a popular choice for shirts due to its breathability and comfort since it is a natural fiber that allows air to circulate, keeping you cool in hot weather - making it an excellent choice for the men who seize the day. Cotton shirts are also known for their softness and durability, making them suitable for everyday wear. Additionally, cotton is easy to care for and can withstand frequent washing without losing its shape or color, making it ideal for those requiring to wash their shirts every so often.

Linen: A material that has been gaining traction in the last decade, Linen presents itself as a timeless yet fashionable material that is especially sought after during warmer days of the year!

Linen is another fantastic material for shirts, especially for those who are looking to be as presentable as possible without sacrificing that elegant, casual style. The material is sourced from the flax plant and is highly breathable, lightweight, and absorbent. Linen shirts have a distinctive texture and a casual, relaxed appearance and they provide excellent airflow and can keep you feeling cool and fresh even in hot and humid conditions. Linen does have a tendency to wrinkle easily, but for most that is an additional plus and not an issue as many people appreciate the relaxed and natural look that it creates!

Mixed Fabrics: Sometimes, a bit of innovation is all you need to ensure you get the best result out of a shirt!

For those seeking a combination of synthetic and cotton materials, mixed fabric shirts represent themselves as a great option. These shirts blend the best qualities of both fibers to create a versatile and comfortable garment as the synthetic component adds durability, wrinkle resistance, and sometimes stretch to the shirt, while the cotton component ensures breathability and a soft feel against the skin. These semi synthetic materials, like viscon shirts, offer the benefits of both materials, making them suitable for various occasions and climates!
