Gabardine - The Tight Weave

  1. Gabardine - Though there seems to be some dispute about the origin of Gabardine, it seems to be an invention of Burberry, the English clothier, and was introduced to the world in 1880. Burberry's website describes Gabardine as a "breathable, weatherproof and tearproof fabric" and was initially made from wool and primarily used for outerwear. These days, Gabardine is made out of many different fibers such as Wool, Cotton and Polyester and is used for skirts, pants, jackets...well most everything except underwear.
