Top Tips on Choosing Linen Shirts

When the summer sun is at its worst, the best way to beat the heat is to go the natural route with your fabrics and fibers. So, whether you are dressing for a formal event or a casual one, consider linen shirts. The key factor that makes most men think twice before choosing linen shirts is the fact that they wrinkle. But if you let this stop you, you are losing out on all that linen has to offer, from the wide range of textures, weights and forms to colors and even natural, undyed fabric. This is one fabric that is easy to care for and extremely comfortable to wear.

How to Choose Linen Shirts

The long and lustrous fibers of the flax plan have been processed into linen, possibly since the time man decided to wear clothes! These fibers are dirt resistant, free of lint and much stronger than cotton. The natural wax in this fiber gives it a luster, unlike any other natural fiber. Linen is the choice summer, given its highly absorbent quality. Best of all, manufacturers have responded to the consumer’s concerns about wrinkling by developing methods, such as fusing synthetic resins with the flax fiber, to keep linen shirts looking crisp, yet soft, even with wear.

Now that we’ve convinced you that linen shirts are the way to go this summer, here are some of the things to look for while making a purchase:

$1·         Check the stitching: One thing that you should know about linen shirts is that this fabric makes every seam stand out. Therefore, the stitching should be seamlessly (pun not intended) integrated with the pattern and weave of the shirt. Whether there are pin-tucks, welt pockets or stitched hems, the stitching should follow the inherent geometry of the design. They type of stitching also varies with the weight of the fabric.

$1·         Pleats: This is one fabric that gives beautiful pleats. If folded properly lengthwise or across the grain, the shirt will not ripple at the pleats. Pleating will affect the way the garment falls over your body. Make sure you iron the pleats well to keep them from splaying open when you wear the garment.

Consumer Initiative with Weed T-Shirts

T-shirts are familiar to people across the world and are worn for a range of occasions. Some people prefer to wear them only for specific occasions such as birthdays, concerts, holidays, and parties. Conversely, other people prefer to wear them regularly and incorporate them into their everyday personal style. For fabric companies, selling printed T-shirts is extremely lucrative and brings in significant revenues. T-shirts are popular across a diverse range of age groups because of the comfort and style they offer. Of course, as T-shirts are available in different colors, sizes, and designs their multipurpose nature cannot be overlooked.

Generally, the popularity of wearing T-shirts is somewhat greater among young people as compared to older people. When certain colors like pink, yellow, orange, etc., are worn it is almost certain that the culprit is a young person, as older people generally prefer more generic colors. Although, all else being equal, when it comes to gender, boys and girls both enjoy the style, elegance, and comfort in wearing these colors. When T-shirts carry impressive art designs, they are coveted for their ability to bring about good social interactions. The designs are infinite. For instance there are graphical designs printed on T-shirts which are intended to conform to a punk and freak look. There are also religious idols representing one’s beliefs. Finally certain designs are simply intended to make a statement about one’s tastes and preferences. Thus, it is the job of T-shirt printing companies to produce creative art designs by understanding what the target consumers are really looking for.

As mentioned previously, T-shirts are available in various sizes. Small, medium, large, and extra large are the industry standard, though T-shirt sizes in the global market may vary slightly. Depending upon one’s style, round neck, flat and v-shaped collared and collar-less T-shirt designs are available. With the ease of the internet, anyone can logon to the most reputed and reliable online dealers; these are shops that are frequented by thousands of buyers each day. There is theme specific T-shirts which illustrate burning issues in a way that makes people consider them from the designer’s perspective. Weed T-shirts are primarily worn by those who enjoy the Marijuana culture; though some just wear them because they enjoy the different designs printed on them. As the previous example illustrates, theme T-shirts speak about various cultures and issues in a way that spoken words simply could not accomplish. Hence, wearing weed t-shirts illustrates one’s interest in weed.

As a marketing strategy, t-shirts are often launched online by companies seeking to capitalize on trending topics, especially those that have become popularized on social networks such as Twitter. Companies are aware that once consumers discover that T-shirts are more comfortable than formal wear, consumers will purchase more of them and this in turn will boost sales. Usually, Weed T-shirts and shirts are sold seasonally or as part of some sort of special promotion. A good selling strategy is one that caters to the mindset of potential consumers. Offers and discounts are always words that consumers enjoy hearing, and sellers should keep this in mind. Selling these products at an attractive discount will bring in much needed popularity. Weed T-shirts and other accessories can get a good boost in sales if they are sold through exclusive discounts.

Funny T-shirts are also a potential market that is targeted frequently by producers. This is partly due to the fact that producers have found generous sales from controversial themes. However, depending upon the consumer tastes and preferences, these costumes may not always succeed. Although, Weed T-shirts are a popular theme that seems to be selling very well.
