Types of Eco Friendly Clothing
For eco friendly shirts and t-shirts, organic cotton is commonly used. This cotton does not require the use of any kind of pesticides, herbicides or insecticides during its growth cycle. Here, the bleaching, dyeing and other manufactured processes are carried out without the help of any chemicals. As organic cotton uses zero amount of chemicals, it is said to be stronger than regular cottons. This cotton also costs more than conventional cotton and that's why eco friendly shirts and t-shirts are high in their prices. Other than organic cotton, organic hemps, linens, bamboo and tencel fibers are also used in the production of eco friendly shirts and t-shirts.
Bamboo fabric is a natural textile manufactured from bamboo pulp. This fabric is more sustainable than most textile fibers and it does not require chlorine for bleaching. The fabric is not treated with any kind of harsh chemicals and so it can be dyed easily. Bamboo fabric causes no harm to the skin and can be worn directly. This organic fiber is soft and smooth with no sharp spurs to irritate the skin. Clothing made out of bamboo fabric are an excellent choice for summers. This is because, bamboo fabric has got effective wicking ability. This means, it allows the skin to breath by pulling away moisture, leaving the skin dry. Eco friendly clothing manufactured from bamboo fabric has other qualities of being antibacterial also. It prevents unpleasant odors and produces a sweet smell in the wearer's clothes. To add to this, this fabric also has insulating properties. This means that it keeps the wearer cool in summers and warm in winters. Due to these amazing qualities of bamboo fabric, bamboo clothing is an excellent choice of designers and consumers too.
Fleece fabric is manufactured by recycling plastic bottles. This creates less air, water and soil contamination. Eco friendly clothes made from fleece fabric are both lightweight and warm. Unlike conventional wools, even if completely wet, these clothes can maintain their loft and insulating properties. This fabric does not hold water and allows easy evaporation of moisture from its fibers. As it is a vegan alternative to wool, it is preferred mostly by vegetarians and also by those who are allergic to wool. Fleece fabric is used for short cropped jackets, pull-on pants, ski wear, vests, jackets and is the most ideal fabric for sweatshirts.
Eco Friendly Baby Clothing
For babies, organic cotton is preferable than the regular ones. Organic baby clothes made from this type of cotton are less likely to cause rashes on the sensitive skin of babies. Moreover, eco friendly baby clothing manufactured with organic cotton is more breathable than conventional cottons. Bamboo fabric is used for manufacturing natural fire-resistant baby sleepwear and this fabric is also hypoallergenic. Organic clothing made out of soy fiber helps in keeping the baby warm and at the same time prevents moisture to build up inside the clothing.
When it comes to eco friendly clothing lines, the top five includes American Apparel, Levi Strauss, Jonano, Rawganique and REI. These lines are basically manufactured from organic cotton, bamboo and hemp fabrics and also from recycled materials. Their manufacturing process causes less harm to the environment, as they follow eco-sensitive procedures.
Using eco friendly products is an effective measure to deal with environmental issues. This way we can extend the life of the Earth, which is gradually on its way to meeting its end due to environmental pollution. After foods, clothes are the ones that are sold in huge quantities than any other products and eco friendly clothing has minimum negative impact on the environment. So, turning to such types of clothing is perhaps the best way through which, we can show our concern and contribute towards a healthy environment and greener Earth!
Their collection of men's fashion trends 2011 yet again manged to be a big hit. The collection is called Ode to Suburbia which was a tribute to the men's fashion from the 50's American suburbia and their casual lifestyle. It will take you back to time when the polo necks, the gingham, the vintage safari and the beach vacation prints were high fashion. Now think of all that, mixed with todays flavor. A palette of somber light shades dominated the moss green ramp. Placid shades of green, khaki brown, blue, gray and maroon gave the modern man a sense of sophistication unlike any other.
So this year it's time to wear safari pants and shorts with light colored shoes. They also brought back the checkered shirt patterns of red and white, black and white and combined it with the beige lowers. Light green, blue and yellow T-shirts or shawl sweaters worn with checked shirts, looked fantastic and so did the dark brown cardigans and leather jackets. Ragged and faded jeans made a classy reentry as well, combined with the suave charms of a man who knows himself well. D&G has given today's man an opportunity to be free and comfortable in his own skin. Learn more about the 1950's fashion for men here at Buzzle.
Missoni's trends have always been a personal favorite of mine. Their men's fashion trends 2011 is all about geometrical prints that added so much more zinc to the pants. The pants are slim fits and have a combination of colors from similar pallets of orange, maroon and blue. Mufflers and hats only added excellent contrast to the flashy lowers. This year they have stressed more a lot on men's coats and it was the single most essential part of their collection.
Long trench coats that reminded of 1940's, as well as exceptionally well tailored coats with bold golden buttons. Graphite gray and deep maroon coats looked the classiest. Missoni's fashion trends for 2011 also flashed some peppy shades such as olive green and mustard brown for the coats. As for the pants metallic shades of black, gray and blue looked svelte combined with pointed leather shoes as well as boots.
Trussardi's men's fashion 2011, takes you back to the time when retro fashion was a way of life. Their collection can be worn by any man who dares to try. The predominant colors are white, black, gray, brown and red. The skinny black pants are a must have, they can be worn with almost anything. Casual well fitted, stripped white and black round necked long sleeved pullovers, plain black shirts and a casual gray T-shirt with rolled up sleeves were the styles that stood out the most. Their simplicity added with some pure personality got the good word going for them. The leather jacket that we all miss so much is back with a bang, now you can flaunt it, like the real roadies do.
Have no qualms about it. Wear well fitted leather jacket with stripped buttoned up shirts or a plain T-shirt and your all set to roll. Accessorize with the classy dark Ray-bans and do not forget the evergreen Italian leather shoes. Also remember the belts need to stand out, so if your wearing black all over, try white belts so on and so forth. Trussardi's latest men's fashion trends 2011, got in the hand bag in a big way this year, so that is totally up to your discretion if you want to give it a try. Some of the styles that really looked good were, the blue shirts with crunched up sleeves worn over dark gray and black stripped T-shirts along with brown pants. As well as the soft yellow T-shirts worn with a wrapped muffler or coat. Here are some useful fashion advice for men and will definitely help.
So these were a few ideas from the men's fashion trends 2011. There are absolutely no restrictions on experimenting with these with your own sense of fashion. Also do not forget to get the right kind of men's hairstyles that are popular in this spring fashion.
