100% Silk 3-ply Crepe Fabric, Charcoal Gray
100% Silk Crepe fabric, a 3-ply weight (36 mm), Charcoal Gray. Matte.
The case for for 3 ply silk crepe is obvious for formal wear. It takes time to persuade people to use it semi formal to causal wear – so let’s make some points.
It does take a bit more care than a blend, true. Its breathable, temperature regulating and comfortable on the skin – that means it will keep you cool in the summer, warmer in the winter. Its universal in occasion – formal to casual wear all around. Its elegant (of course) and the durability is there.
Cut it on the bias and you basically have a stretch (even though 100% silk), line it with Cotton/Poly batiste and you have yourself a little more stability.
You can make the simple of simple and you’ll look elevated.
