7 Summer Shirts EVERY Man Should Own (Chambray, Linen, Cotton, & More!)

7 Summer Shirts Every Man Should Own So, the first shirt on this list, gentlemen, the linen shirt. Been in men’s wardrobe for thirty five thousand years. If you go back and you look in ancient Egypt, actually, the mummies were buried with linen because when it comes to a fabric, nothing can beat linen when it comes to breathability. And, definitely you should have a linen shirt in your wardrobe. Now, what type of linen shirt? You’ll notice I’ve got a dark-colored linen shirt right here. This is the color that I usually gravitate towards. I do have white as well, I think it’s a great color, and I’ve got some, you know, an oatmeal right here. And here’s a protip, when you’re grabbing your linen shirt, go with a simple design.

So, this linen shirt right here, I had custom-made. I went for the chest pockets, I had the epaulets on the shoulders, even on the sleeves I had little strap little fastener there. Guess what? I have only worn this two times. Why? It’s a headache to iron. And, that is the thing with linen, you got to understand that this is going to wrinkle, but if you’re cool with that and you want the most breathable shirt fabric out there, definitely go for this style. In today’s video, gents, seven summer shirts that every men should look to buy. Next up, gentlemen, we’ve got the classic summer check. You’re looking for either a poplin or broadcloth in cotton or maybe you’re looking for a synthetic performance material. There are some great shirt options out there, but what you’re looking for here is something that has a nice airy feel and has a very nice drape with a lightweight breathable fabric.

The pattern that you’re seeing here is a classic gingham. Now, white is the base and then we have two variations of blue. This is a complex pattern which is great for layering and matching. So, I could throw in a V-neck sweater, it would look awesome, even if I brought in maybe a maroon. I could layer this with a jacket, maybe bring in a dark green jacket. Another option is a graph check or a tattersall. Again, you want to go with a white base or a light colored base, great for summer. Go with a breathable fabric. And very similar to gingham, this particular pattern is easy to layer. It’s also easy to wear by itself. Some other patterns to look at, tartan, although mostly you’re going to find that in wool and madras. Now, madras comes out of India, comes in a wide variety of very bright combinations, but what I like about this is you can also find it in trousers.

Gents, all the shirts you’ve seen in today’s video, brought to you by Tailor Store, the sponsor of today’s video. And, for years I’ve been working with them because when it comes down to the perfect fit, they guarantee it. And, I love a company that takes care of people. Whenever you’re looking to buy your first custom shirt, design something unique, they make it so easy. Go over and you download a simple app, you take a picture of yourself, you enter your height and your weight, that’s all you have to do. That’s what I did and I got this perfectly fitted shirts. I’ve got to go in and design y’all a fancy inside collars, the buttons, everything. I could go in there and design how I want. And I love this I got exactly what I wanted at an amazing price. And, you guys know I used to own a clothier, so I’m very particular when it comes to fabrics, when it comes to quality built. I’ve got over twenty Tailor Store shirts in my wardrobe that I wear in the vast majority of my videos.

Why? Because the fabrics are amazing, the fit is spot on. Hey, it doesn’t fit the first time? Ask them to remake it. That’s why I love this company, great customer service, they do everything in-house. And, of course, guys, I’ve got you covered. Use that link down in the description. When you use that link, you’re going to get the best deal you’re ever going to find from Tailor Store.

Again, that link is in the description, you’ve got to use it to get the best deal on your first shirt from Tailor Store. Next up, we’ve got the simple white shirt with a small accent. So, I like to go with simple white dress shirts made from a lightweight material. You’re looking for a very lightweight poplin, lightweight broadcloth. And notice right here, I’ve got these small stylistic details right on the inside of the collar. Now, if you can’t find something like that, you may be able to change up the buttons, go for maybe a contrasting button. On these buttons right here, I’ve got a contrast stitching in there. But, what you’re looking to do is to do a little bit of a play on this, so it’s not just that simple white dress shirt, it’s one with that small accent which stands out from the crowd.

White, what’s great about this, it’s perfect for summer. It’s going to reflect away the heat the sun, it’s not going to absorb that heat and you can dress it up, you can dress it down. Next up, we’ve got a bold patterned button-down. Again, we’re going for a lightweight fabric preferably in a hundred percent cotton, broadcloth, poplin. Now, this bold pattern right here, this is a paisley. It comes out of India. This is something that’s definitely going to stand out and that’s what you’re looking to do, have a shirt that’s going to help you stand out from the crowd. Another option would be to go with florals, small flowers or even larger flowers. Another option could be a small repeating dot on a dark colored background. And darks, I’m going to gravitate towards just because I think they have the flexibility to be worn at night maybe to the club or something like that. Next up, you’ve got a lightweight chambray. Now, some people confuse this with denim, they’re very different. Denim, heavyweight not breathable; chambray, the complete opposite. We’re talking something that’s going to be incredibly breathable, very lightweight.

In fact, when you go and you touch this, you’re going to be amazed by how soft this fabric is. Now, why is it so soft? It has a bit of a napped surface. It feels great when you wear this out in about during a hot day. So, the next shirt on our list is a classic summer shirt and that is the polo shirt. Now, when you think of the polo shirt, you notice, this one has a lot more stretch than all the other shirts we talked about. Why is that? This is a knit. A knit is made from a single long yarn and this is made to stretch. You’re going to usually see two, three, or four buttons. When you see four buttons, it’s actually a golf shirt. Three buttons or two buttons are going to be classic polo shirts. Now, polo shirts come in a wide variety of styles, options, and ways to wear them. Most guys are going to wear polo shirts untucked. And when you look at the bottom style of that, that actually facilitates this because it’s going to be made shorter and it’s going to have a straight bottom.

And, let’s talk about color. This is where you can really liven up your wardrobe. You can bring in really strong colors like a true blue, bring in a bright red, even bring in a yellow, you can bring in pink or you can go for a solid blue or a classic white. Now, when it comes to fabrics you got tons of options out there, cotton pique though is going to dominate. You’re going to see some performance fabrics out there, and you’re even going to see some polos made from wool. I think those are great, they have a really nice drape if you wanted to dress it up. Now, let’s talk about the short-sleeve button-down. This is a great shirt if you’ve got the body for it. If you’re fit, if you’ve got larger arms, go for it. Normally going to be worn untucked, so you want to make sure it’s the right length. And, when it comes down to the sleeve length, you don’t want it too short, you don’t want it too long.

So, if you’ve got built if you’ve got the guns for, then you can have it raised up a bit have it a bit closer in on the sleeves. But, if you’re really thin, I would recommend you look at a longer sleeve shirt and you just simply roll it up. If you though decide to go with a shorter sleeve button-down, make sure that you get it tapered though in on the sleeves, you don’t want to have tons of excess fabric there. All right, guys. So, what video to watch next? Check out this one, how to be attractive in a dress shirt. I give you ten simple tips to up your style. And if you want to learn how to build your own custom shirt, I’ve got you covered with this other video right here, how to build your first online shirt.

Brooklinen at WeWork | Member Stories | WeWork

– We started the business working out of our apartment. When we moved into our WeWork office, I think the business actually really started to accelerate its growth. – It’s like hitting next level in the game. We wanted luxury bedding that didn’t cost a fortune. We stayed at a hotel that had incredible sheets and then they were $800 when we went to get them in the store. We thought, we can’t believe that you can’t buy your bedding direct-to-consumer, and that was why we founded Brooklinen. – We had moved into the building when we were only two people.

WeWork has really helped us to grow as the team has grown. With the speed at which the company moving, seeing six months in advance can be a challenge. Having a really flexible solution such as WeWork, allows us to be really agile. – I did at first think it was only a cool working space, but then we saw they have small offices, medium and large. Knowing we could have the flexibility to grow was monumental for us. – We expanded to 32 people as of last week. – If we were expanding an office that we owned there would be a lot of logistical hurtles we would have to overcome. WeWork really takes care of all of that for us. – In sometimes less than a week really. – What I love about our space is that its our own office, there are different nooks and crannies to work in.

We have tons of natural light. – Flexible space is really great for us because we’re not locked into anything, and we can keep it very cost effective. – We can put that money towards giving customers what they really want. – By taking the office logistics out of the equation, it allows us to really laser focus on our business, and we can be very very agile. – When we think about growth, we really just think about growing the business within WeWork.

Perfect Way To Upgrade Your Summer Blazer: Handcrafted Linen Pocket Squares – Fort Belvedere

Welcome to Fort Belvedere! In this video, we talk about the linen pocket squares with hand rolled X stitches. How they’re different from one another, how you can wear them and what makes them so unique. First of all, we have two different variations of linen. One is a more traditional linen which is softer yet still stiff enough to fold into a nice pocket square shape, but it’s more what you’re used to from a regular store. The other option is a so-called handcrafted linen which is handwoven. It has a very open weave which makes it very summery and casual. And if you look at the fabric itself, it has little knobs.

Some are thicker than others. It’s very transparent. It is stiffer and because of that we had to make that pocket square smaller. Why smaller? Basically, we design all of our pocket squares so they stay in your pocket without being too big. They will never disappear. They will never pop out. They’re just proportioned exactly the right way for your pocket. On top of that, all these pocket squares are hand rolled not just in a usual way but with an X stitch. That basically takes more than twice as long because the X’s have to be the same so they look harmonious and proportional. If you already have shoestring pocket squares with contrasting edges this is the next step.

It’s much rarer. You can really not find it made from China. These are made in Italy from Italian linen which is very high-quality. For the finer traditional linen, we offer it with a red X stitch as well as the navy X stitch. You can wear it with blazers or with business suits. It just adds a little bit of something extra to it. One of my favorite pocket squares is the pale yellow one with a pale yellow X stitch. It’s just summery, it’s subtle, it works well with pastel shirts and so does the brown and blue one with a brown base and blue X stitching.

On top of that we have our handcrafted linen. One in a burgundy red with white. It’s a very summery, very light fabric but you can also wear it with tweed jackets. Then we have a yellow one with a navy blue X stitch, which is different than the other yellow one that I mentioned before and so you can combine it with either your yellow and blue socks or maybe with elements in your jacket or your tie. The other version is a plain white even though it’s not a 100% white. It’s slightly more muted than that but it has light blue X stitching which is really great on summer blazers or sport coats. Last but not least, we have a blueish version of the handcrafted linen with a dark navy X stitch which goes really well with any kind of blue outfit.

It makes it a little more casual, a little more relaxed and a little more summery even though you could wear them during the fall especially with flannel and tweed jackets. For a full selection our pocket square head over to the shop here, where you can also find a pocket square with hand stitch dots which is kind of polka dot effect or with the suits when you play cards. Really great if you like poker or if you go to Vegas a lot. .

Arhaus | Bedding | The Ava Bedding Collection

Ava Washed Linen is a new Collection that Arhaus has designed exclusively for us to help you design the bedroom of your dreams. We feature 100% linen, machine washability, four colors, and three styles that we know you’re going to love. I’d like to talk to you about linen first of all. Linen is a fabulous textile, it’s one of our favorite fabrics to use. Linen is inherently breathable, it’s soft, it’s washable, and it’s incredibly durable.

The more you wash linen, the tighter and stronger the fibers get, the softer it gets, the more you’re going to love it in a bedding collection. Our collection is designed to mix and match the three styles and the four colors to make a gorgeous bed. We carry three different styles – the first one is called, Ruffled, Frayed Edge, the second one is a Picot Edge, and our third is a classic quilt, done in a stipple style of linen. One of the things we’re introducing in our Ava Collection is a sheeting group. In the sheets we carry a deep pocket fitted sheet, a top sheet in the Picot or Ruffled edge, and king and standard shams. A term that often comes up when we talk about sheeting is thread count.

Thread count is a term that’s thrown around by a lot of different manufacturers and companies to try and describe how finely-woven their fabric is. Thread counts don’t really refer to linen – that’s a term that’s used in cotton for cotton sheeting. In linen, it matters how finely spun your fiber is as to how nice and soft your sheets are, and we use a very finely-spun fiber. So in conclusion, our Ava Collection is exclusive to Arhaus, it’s very competitively priced, and it’s absolutely beautiful.

Should You Wear Cuffed Pants?

Welcome back to the Gentleman’s Gazette! In today’s video, we’ll discuss cuffed trousers and whether you should wear them or not. In recent years, cuffs, also known as turn-ups, have somewhat fallen out of favor with mainstream men. At the same time, it’s a very classic look that has been around for a long time and will likely also be a part of classic men’s wardrobe for the foreseeable future. First of all, what are trouser cuffs? Basically, it is a folded edge at the hem at the bottom and it looks like a turned-up edge that it’s added to the pant leg. Traditionally, a cuff is not cut but simply folded from excess fabric at the bottom hem. Because of that, if you will let out the cuffs, you could always create a longer pair of pants or trousers. When you do that, you usually don’t have enough fabric left to put a cuff back on.

In that case, you simply add a faux cuff meaning it is cut separately and then sewn on to give you a little more extra room when you’re short on fabric. For bespoke trousers or suits, you sometimes also see angled cuffs which is more difficult to do and they are always faux cuffs because you cannot have a continuous piece of fabric with a faux cuff. The benefit of the angled cuff is that you don’t have a break in the front, at the same time, the back part of the trouser leg reaches almost the heel which is very pleasing. You also reveal more of the shoe. Normally, cuffed trousers are all plain hemmed and to learn more about the proper trouser length, please check out this video here. On the formality scale, cuffed trousers are always less formal than pants without cuffs. Historically, the origins of cuffs stemmed from a time where you would turn up the bottom hem of your trouser in muddy weather. In 1890, the then Prince of Wales who later became King Edward the seventh introduced the permanent turn-up which was there just for fashion reasons and was not a necessity due to outside weather conditions.

Cuffed pants became the norm for businesswear between the 1890s and the 1940s. During World War II, there was a fabric shortage and so it was decided to forego the cuff or the turn-up so you could save on a fabric and create more garments instead. Ever since the 1950s, cuffed trousers have gone in and out of fashion but over the years, they’ve always remained, they’ve always come back and likely they will always come back even though they might not be super fashionable at this point in time. By the way, the British refer to cuffs as things you have on your sleeve versus on the pants or trousers, they’re called turn-ups. Sometimes Savile Row tailors also call them PTUs or permanent turn-ups. At the end of the day, they’re all the same and we use the terminology interchangeably in this video.

So when and where do you typically see cuffs on trouser hems? You definitely see them in suits and in Italy, I’d say the majority of suits will have the cuff. They’re also popular in white-collar professions with lawyers, bankers, and the like. Cuffs can help to make a suit silhouette to look more grounded especially when you have vertical stripes such as a pinstripe or a rope stripe. To learn more about stripes, please check out this guide here and for more about office wear or how to dress as a lawyer, please check out their respective guides. In terms of the seasons, you can find cuffs anywhere from flannel suits or tweed suits all the way up to summery seersucker suits. In the collegiate realm, cuffs are favored by people who are interested in trad style and you can learn more about that style here. On the other hand, if you’re more a follower of the preppy style you’re more likely to just manually turn-up your uncuffed pants.

You guessed it, we also have a video on preppy style here. Cuffs are also often a feature on odd trousers or slacks that are worn to the office. Just think of the typical gray flannel pants with a navy blazer, for example, or other office outfits that are a bit more serious. When it comes to casual pants, you still may encounter turn-ups on chinos or khakis even though you can also find them without cuffs. When it comes to traditional workwear such as denim or jeans, you will not find a cuff because that would simply be impractical. In this day and age, a cuff on a pair of jeans would simply look weird. That aside, you can also find cuffs on shorts sometimes especially in the Bermudas, typically, they make it a little less formal so for most shorts, I don’t think they’re appropriate but it is an option that exists. To learn more about summer shorts, please check out this guide here.

So to cuff or not to cuff your pants, that is the question! The bottom line is cuffs or turn-ups are optional and it’s a personal style choice. For example in my suit collection, I have a bunch of suits with cuffs that are a little more casual, at the same time, I have three-piece suits that don’t feature cuffs whereas others do feature cuffs. The big advantage of cuffs is that it adds a bit more weight to the bottom part of your pants thus creating a nicer drape or hang of the trouser especially if you have pleated pants.

Of course, they also can help to create a visual balance, for example, for double-breasted suits or vertically striped suits but to learn more about pleated pants, please check out this video here. Cuffs definitely give you a slightly more traditional look and if you want a contemporary look with a slim fit, oftentimes, it’s better to forego the cuff for a cleaner silhouette. That being said, there’s one area where cuffs and turn-ups are always unacceptable from a historical point of view and that is formal wear. So you’ll never see cuffs on a proper tuxedo, a black tie ensemble, a white tie ensemble, or a morning coat.

Likewise, you also won’t encounter it with a stroller suit. For more details about Black Tie white tie or morning wear please check out our respective guides So if you’re buying trousers that are not for a formal occasion, should you add cuffs or not? At the end of the day, if you’re undecided, I always argue in favor of cuffs because you can always have them very easily removed at the alterations tailor. Think of it as an additional fabric that allows you to be creative with the size of your cuff but if you don’t like it, you can always get rid of it. On the flip side, if you decide against cuffs from the get-go and you later realize that the fabric is too flimsy and you would like to have a cuff in there, it’s very difficult to add one back on because most of the time, there’s not enough fabric left even for a faux cuff.

So if you decide to go with cuffs on your trousers or slacks, here are a few tips to wear them well. First of all, for a true cuff, you always need a plain hem and you want the front just to slightly touch the top of your shoe. In general, cuffs look best if they just slightly touch your shoe without creating a deep break or any puddling around your ankle. So when in doubt, a cuffed pair of pants is always slightly shorter than an uncuffed pair of pants. Having too much excess fabric at the ankle paired with a cuff can just look sloppy. Also, if your pants have cuffs as well as pleats, the break can interrupt the nice crease and the nice line of the pair of trousers.

When you wear dress boots, make sure that the pants have enough space so they go over the boot and don’t just get caught on it, otherwise, you always have some puddling going on that’s very unsightly. In terms of cuff size, there is again no right or wrong. Historically, there has been anything from under one inch to all the way up to two and a half even three inches. As with most things in menswear, it pays to stay in the middle which is typically between one and a half inches or two inches. In the metric system, that’s about 3.5 or 3.75 centimeters and 5 centimeters. According to Alan Flusser, a traditional cuff size is 1 and 5/8 of an inch for men who are 5’10” or shorter. If you are taller than that, you should go with an inch and 3/4. Personally, I like it slightly larger so sometimes I have a two-inch cuff or slightly smaller something that’s also slightly bigger but it definitely is a bit more noticeable and if you want to go for a classic look, this guideline hits the nail on the head. Of course, you can also pay attention to other aspects in your suit.

Let’s say you have very wide lapels, you should not have a very slim cuff because it simply looks not proportional. Also, you can look at the height of your collar in the back of your neck of your jacket and try to match that to the size of your trouser cuff. So what are some good ways to get started with cuffs? I suggest you maybe start with a pair of chinos because you can wear them a little more casually and otherwise, you can also wear them with a suit including a solid navy suit which is quite formal for a suit but nevertheless, it can be worn with cuffs. If you don’t wear suits a lot, you could experiment with cuffs on slightly more casual pants such as flannel pants, tweed slacks, or linen pants. So in conclusion, it pays to have cuffed trousers in your wardrobe whether it was a really casual slacks that’s just chinos or slacks that are a part of a suit.

At the same time, you never want to add cuffs to very formal ensembles because they are simply not meant for that. When you opt for cuffs, go with a slightly shorter trouser length so you have a nicely hanging pair of pants and at the end of the day, the sky is the limit and your choice or preference decides on whether you have a lot of cuffs in your wardrobe or very few but it always pays to have at least a few pairs of pants with cuffs because it just gives you a complete wardrobe. So what about you, do you prefer pants with or without cuffs? Please share with us in the comments and if you enjoyed this video, give us a thumbs up and I’m sure you’ll also enjoy the other videos about trousers which you can check out here.

In today’s outfit I am wearing a combination of cuffed trousers in houndstooth with black and white as well as a green jacket that is part of a suit I combined it with a white dress shirt with French cuffs and cufflinks with an onyx stone from Fort Belvedere which go well with the silver buckle on the black double monk strap for my shoes my tie is purple with tones of green and orange which are picked up by the Pocket square as well as my socks you can find all three of those accessories in our shop here the cuffs on this pair of pants are about 2 inches or 5 centimeters which is just a style I personally like and the weight helps to create a nice silhouette for my trousers .

is we have this three mile pink sand beach and it really is very very unique and it’s from this extraordinary mollis that lives on the coral on the reefs app and over time when it dies it falls to the seabed and the waves wash it and wash it wash it and it gets ground down and mixed in with the sand and that’s what gives our Sanders extrordinary pink color and that’s the color there that Adams got

sellout and we have hundreds and hundreds of people in the ordering process if you are just tuning in very very quickly cuz I don’t want to bore you with this India Hicks is one of our most prestigious designers and we are thrilled to have her on on HSN I chose this item because of the response because of my familiarity with it from growing up in England I chose this item as my star host pick item we weren’t able to do it for host pick this is therefore our host pick replacement this is our own core the price is the best it will ever be four sheets that you cannot even begin to describe no they won’t pill no these won’t shrink yes they are softer than you could ever even imagined I want you to know something really clearly what you have in your mind of what I just a set of sheets feels like this is not the same this is so unique it is such an original feeling it is such a unique feeling that only when you get these home and you do go to bed in them will you get it why the mansion houses in the estate houses and the lords and the ladies and really in England like my mom was always very house proud and so when she you know she had her linen cotton sheets and she just happened for years and years and years and years she loved them it was that little treat it was that sense of okay I’ve got the best I can these are the best in the world that truly are in terms of the feeling that gives you and that’s why a lot of people because of the complexities because of how high-end these are will spend two three four hundred dollars well in these next four minutes we’ve got them at 99 and remember if you were ever to take advantage of HSN’s legendary 30 day money-back guarantee this would be it sleeping these for five nights or 10 nights or 20 or 30 nights and if you don’t think these are the best sheets you’ve ever felt please return them you’ll get a full refund a full money-back guarantee I just want to see something because we won’t have them on next week or next month the only time we ever have linen con sheets is when India Hicks is here it is with md Hicks’s resources her partner’s her people her sources that we are able to do this at this price which is industry breaking I mean nobody nobody can match this so India for anybody just tuning in can we just go top to bottom what your certs such a pleasure oh my god for me it’s right it’s just a pleasure I stand here and he sells these beautiful sheets I feel so many through that’s wonderful every word of Allah true but I told my story Indian you know linen cotton in England is just the rage it is it so it’s also a real heirloom so that the point is you’re going to invest in these sheets and they’re not just for the immediate future there’s something that hopefully you’re going to look after you’re going to be able to hand on down to your children and that’s why we’ve done these in these colors they’re not statement colors at all they’re easy easy colors that are never going timeless you never get a tire of these colors maybe you just want the white maybe you can’t decide I love the white it is an optic white isn’t it it is a real crisp and clean that’s a real luxury that it is a special one and the thing is when I describe it as more substantial you know what I mean don’t you I mean it is not a lot of sheets are very flimsy and very soft but because it’s interesting when you say soft I want people to understand that they are soft but there’s this texture to it and that’s and that and that’s what makes them that that’s what gives them the linen that’s what gives them the stability that they’re very very soft but it’s that linen texture that you you were talking about having having a close up so people could really feel what it is but you really do get that feeling that this is an heirloom it is the last chance I know that we’re going to have to say goodbye to india in about three minutes time so if you’re tempted by the moon shrieked by them that’s that’s all I ask is that you really do give them a go here is a last update on colors and what we now have remaining please remember every size is the same price the last call is going out on this gray and the coral now Carl always does well or with other color it is the island color it tells my story very very nicely if you are if it is a wedding or a gift idea please please think about the white this is that stunning lavender the such softness to this I mean in terms unusual I think it’s really unusual to see that sheet and when I first came to HSN are they said we need color i said i don’t do color I really don’t you can see the way I dress you can see the water and let happen and yet we were able to bring in color here and I feel very secure about I feel good I’ll sleep on these I sell these I have my own little boutique on the island these are in there because i feel so convinced that this works as a sheet set it’s not spectacular I feel like we’ve not really paid enough attention to this beautiful taupe and it that’s a shame because this taupe is it what i mean i’d call it look at what the coral it’s wonderful that they done very well together those those yeah beautiful that chocolate brown isn’t that illegal though you’re not really nice because it’s almost like it’s a softer chocolate it’s on what is like a chocolate mix it again well

Hotel Comfort Bamboo Sheets Review – Is Bamboo the Material for You?

Sarah: Hey guys, it’s Sarah from Sleepopolis. Today I’ll be reviewing the Luxury Bamboo Sheet set from Hotel Comfort. I’m going to tell you a little bit about what I like, what I don’t like, and for whom these will be especially beneficial. Let’s get started. Sarah: Now that we got the sheets on the bed, let’s talk about what they’re made of. These sheets are made from 100 percent natural bamboo fibers, which have a reputation of making very, very soft material. There are several types of bamboo. This happens to be bamboo viscose, which is regarded as one of the softest types of bamboo. Many sleepers have compared the feel to silk or cashmere, for example. Each set contains one top sheet, one fitted sheet, and two pillow cases. This set that I’m testing is a queen size set, but if you do order a king size set, it comes with king size pillow cases. You’ll notice on most bamboo bedding products, there’s no thread count indicated.

The general rule of thumb is, 1,000 thread count of cotton is equivalent to 250 thread count of bamboo. Bamboo is definitely the softer material. Now that we know what these sheets are made of, let’s see how they feel, and how well they stay on the mattress. Sarah: As promised, the feel of these sheets is incredibly soft. Really just — silky, light, airy, breathable material. I can feel how it drapes over my body. I can’t stop rubbing the material. I just think it feels so soothing and silky on my skin. The pillow cases are pretty large. Like I said, this is a queen set that I’m testing. You would, of course, get king size pillow cases with a king size set. These are accommodating a pretty large pillow right now, and they’ve still got a little bit of room to spare. The opening has this nice flap of fabric, so that you don’t actually see inside of the pillow case, a nice aesthetic value there.

A common complaint that sleepers have about sheets is that the fitted sheet becomes untucked throughout the night. Maybe they toss and turn, and wake to find that the sheet has become untucked. I can tell you after rolling around quite a bit in these sheets, that has not happened. All four corners are still snugly tucked under the mattress. Overall, these sheets have a great feel. Like I said, the most important thing to me is how they feel on my body, and to me these are incredibly soothing, comfortable, soft sheets. For folks who are looking for something silky, light, and breathable, these are a great option. The prices of these sheets range from 249 to 450, but if a hypoallergenic sheet set will improve your quality of life, it might be worth it. There are a lot of things to like about this sheet set. To name a few, the natural properties of bamboo are to be sweat wicking and cooling, so if you heat up during the night, these will be beneficial for you. Another great thing about bamboo is it’s naturally hypoallergenic, so if you have allergies, sensitive skin, these are especially beneficial for you.

Something great about Hotel Comfort is they let you try these sheets for 100 days before you have to make any decisions. That’s a long time for even the most indecisive sleeper. My favorite thing about these sheets is just how incredibly soft they are. They feel amazing on my skin, and at the end of the day, that’s the most important factor for me. There are a few cons to this sheet set. Firstly, the color I received does not exactly match the color represented on the website. It’s not a huge deal, but if you’re picking something other than white, it’s something to bear in mind for sure. Another thing about these sheets is they wrinkle and crease easily. Unfortunately, you cannot iron them, or it would ruin the material. If you want to get the wrinkles out without having to go through the entire wash process, just throw them in the dryer on a low setting, and shake the wrinkles out. One other thing about these sheets is while they’re lovely, light, and breathable, they’re very light, and really not intended to keep you warm.

While they might be perfect for summer time, I would definitely switch to something heavier when the winter rolls around. Well, that’s it for now.
