This darkest-of-dark navy blue stretch cotton twill fabric is a beautiful cloth. It comes to us from a high-end British designer and deserves to be teamed with classic accessories in tan, nut brown or black. Although it is a very dark navy blue, place it next to black and you can see the indigo undertones right away.
Our navy blue stretch cotton twill fabric has a refined diagonal classic twill weave, obscured by a lightly-peached nap, giving the effect of a moleskin fabric – albeit a very refined one.
Although it leans towards the lighter-weight end of a medium-weight twill, our navy blue stretch cotton twill fabric is all but completely opaque yet manages to be wonderfully-robust without being in the least bulky. This is a fabric with an elegant structure which manages to hold a shape well, as you can see from this video.
Our classic darkest navy blue stretch cotton twill fabric is 98% cotton mixed with 2% spandex. That stretch element is present in the weft threads, meaning that it gives across the width of the fabric. However not too much – this isn’t a ‘leggings’ fabric – our navy blue stretch cotton twill fabric is a much more formal cloth and will hold its shape nicely. Cut your trousers down the length of the fabric as you usually would, and your cigarette pants, clamdiggers, capri crops – or whatever your legwear of choice happens to be – will have a comfortable ease across their width.
Of course trousers aren’t the only possibility for our navy blue stretch cotton twill fabric. A jacket with a close fit to the back and waist looks neat and satisfying – and a classic cloth such as our navy blue stretch cotton twill fabric would do the trick nicely. Suits, fitted dresses and skirts to meet both informal and formal requirements would all be options. Back on the trouser front however, we think our navy blue stretch cotton twill fabric would be perfect for the classic formality of the ‘Claudia’ pant from Style Arc.
