Fabric Glossary: Performance Fabrics

Published on March 24, 2022

Stretchy, light, wrinkle-free fabrics have been ubiquitous in activewear and athleisure over the past years. These performance fabrics not only have a relaxed 4-way stretch and exceptional lightness and breathability, but now they can have a look and feel just like your favorite dress shirts. More and more people are finding that performance fabrics are not only great for the gym but their ease and comfort can also be enjoyed at the office.

Dress shirts made from performance fabrics are often the most low-maintenance shirts. They never shrink or fade in the wash, and colors will not bleed onto other clothing. Performance dress shirts are also wrinkle-free, seldom needing an iron out of the dryer. Due to their moisture-wicking qualities, performance fabrics have very low levels of absorption, preventing odor build-up and the dreaded pit stains.
