Just want to know is gabardine weave a more warmer fabric? is it as breatheble as “normal” worsted wool fabric? Is it suitable for warm weather country? Thanks!
It’s reasonably warm, and the weave is tight enough to be pretty water-resistant. You see hunting clothes in gabardine, sometimes. It’s not a fabric you see a whole lot anymore, though,
Was this answer helpful?
I’ve read that worsted/cotton was the first fabric gabardine was made of. Burberry first made trench coats in this type of gabardine, which are tough and very sturdy. it’s also very flimsy and rough to an extent; even more breathable. So it just depends on what fabric your choosing. If you live in warm climates maybe it only goes down to 50 degrees Fahrenheit; maybe try cotton gabardine. What’s your price limit, because if you have the means (starting at $800, a classic Burberry trench coat may suit you well.
Hope this helps.
I also read that Gabardine is a tightly woven warp-faced twill weave fabric. The fibre used to make the fabric is traditionally worsted wool, but may also be cotton, texturized polyester, or a blend. There is a light-weight gabardine used for sportswear and dresses, while heavy weight gabardine is used for slacks and tailored suits.
Hope this helps!
