Sewn-In | Polyester

Hey Fashionable Guys&Girls!

Like nylon, polyester is one of the most common synthetic fibre materials.

The Facts
There's a lot about the polyester's synthesis so sticking with the basics...

"Polyester is a category of polymers which contain the ester functional group in their main chain. Although there are many polyesters, the term "polyester" as a specific material most commonly refers to polyethylene terephthalate (PET). Polyesters include naturally occurring chemicals, such as in the cutin of plant cuticles, as well as synthetics through step-growth polymerization such as polycarbonate and polybutyrate. Natural polyesters and a few synthetic ones are biodegradable, but most synthetic polyesters are not.
Depending on the chemical structure, polyester can be a thermoplastic or thermoset, there are also polyester resins cured by hardeners; however, the most common polyesters are thermoplastics." 
 

Also like nylon, it's widely used in many products like seat belts, bottles, furniture, and (of course) clothing. It's used in finish for wood products like pianos as it can fill the wood grain quickly and can be sanded and polished. 
"Liquid crystalline polyesters are among the first industrially used liquid crystal polymers. They are used for their mechanical properties and heat-resistance. These traits are also important in their application as an abradable seal in jet engines" (Wikipedia)
In clothing, it is wrinkle, water, and wind resistant, durable, and holds colour better than natural fabrics.

The Fashion





The Alternative Pullover in dirty blue stripe (US$58) is a polyester/cotton/rayon blend and with the colour and mixed/duo-colour stripe pattern it's so spring. The NYDJ Petites Marilyn Straight Jeans (US$130) is polyester/cotton/spandex. With a 9" rise, 29.5" inseam, and 15.5" leg opening they make your legs look longer and leaner and with an "exclusive criss-cross panel flattens tummy and lifts behind, recommended ordering one size down" (Bloomingdales). They are also made in the USA like the Ella Moss Bikini Bottoms (US$49) with portofino tab sides made of polyester/spandex/metallic/nylon. For the guys, the Ted Baker Nathe Textured Sweater (US$175) in 'natural'. The chevron stripe pattern sweater is made of cotton/polyester/viscose.

Stay Fabulous,
xoxo Aimee
