Hello,

I am searching for a fine woven, thick formal shirting fabric. The type of shirting fabric that is used for high-end formal/evening shirts which undergo starching.

I currently use a 2/100 plain weave shirting fabric which may be described as a reasonable and ''typical'' shirting fabric. But I require a thicker/heavier plain weave shirting fabric that has a fine thread and a count that is more like 2/80. The suppliers I have approached so far have only sent samples of thicker fabrics that have very coarse, bulky basket weaves and this is unsuitable for good quality shirting.

Does anyone have a lead on a fabric supplier who may be able to assist?

what 100/2 are you using.
I work with an Indian mill that offers a 100/2 in a denser construction.

Whenever I need shirting, I turn to Acorn Fabrics as my first choice. Have you tried them?
Sure, I believe your work rocks, but... have you considered, how are you going to sell that stuff?

Hi yes I have tried them and they are sending me a sample. I am exploring all other options in the meantime - hopefully I can get a viable source.

Thanks

I was referring to the mill.
Morarjee, an Indian mill has a 100/2 quality called superior.
it is dense.. not as soft as other qualities, but it is a good white,
not see through and fairly priced
let me know if you need contact info

I would be interested in seeing a sample of it and getting a pricing....so yes, please provide me with the details.

Naturally, I will be putting the fabric under a microscope to see how it is constructed - but I am prepared to give any supplier a chance.

I'm in discussions about their terms now and waiting their reply...I'll keep you posted, J.
On the face of it, they seem to present a respectable selection.

I emailed them on the 24th Jan but there has been no reply. I can't answer your questions sorry. I'll be more than happy to give my business to another supplier who answers my email however.
