First, apologies to those irritated by belt loops without a belt.
This was the morning of the first full day of my most recent business trip
and I had not yet finished dressing (the belt and jacket went on later).
I was at a conference where business attire meant
closed toe shoes and matching pieces to a suit.
One of two suits I purchased this year made its debut, along
Since those horrible wool-eating moths got to one of my pant suits,
I had decided to give the superfine cotton a try.
Though cotton isn't top of mind for suit material, I went for it
thinking it might not be the first choice of those buggers.
I like the fabric. Very much.
It's weighty and has a nice hand and drape.
It's of 100% cotton and true to the words from the copywriter (from space),
there's a hint of stretch to it.
But! As can be expected from 100% cotton, it wrinkles.
Here's what the trousers looked like after
a very full day of conference activities.
I don't mind when natural material behaves like natural material.
Such as when I noticed quite a bit of wear on the leather soles
of these wonderful shoes. I'm certain 100% soft and delicious
leather is a big part of why they are tradeshow-tested comfortable.
I will always prefer natural fibers to manmade.
So imagine my disappointment when I stalked and finally found
my size in another version of my beloved top
and learned the solid colored ones are of rayon, not silk.
With a pout, I deleted two of those from my cart.
