Cotton has been around for centuries and is used in clothing, blankets, and many other items using fabric. The cotton suit is used mostly in the creation of summer suits and has many advantages and disadvantages.

Cottons dominating advantages come in the form of its cooling properties and its low maintenance qualities. This material can be washed at home without the use of a dry cleaner. Also it tends to let air in and out of its clutches which keeps the wearer nice and cool.

This suits advantage becomes a disadvantage in colder months. The ability to let body heat escape and to let fresh air enter is not preferable when the wearer is cold. In addition to this cotton tends to form wrinkles very easily.

China has been producing silk garments for thousands of years. You can find silk in everything from tuxedos and suits to underwear.

Advantages come in the form of its soft feel, climate adaptability, and elegant luster. This suit will keep heat close in the winter and heat out in the summer. The soft texture is one of the best feeling garments in existence.

The great disadvantage of silk is its delicate nature. Silk suits do not hold up well over time and are the least durable of all suits. Also they will stain easily and are not recommended for the heavy sweater.
