Do you know your acetate from a hole in the ground? Your gussets from your grommets? If not, here's a list of the more commonly used textile words and terms that you'll see in our catalog. For more information or clarification, you can call us at: 1-800-882-4323

ACETATE - A manufactured fiber that uses cellulose refined from cotton and/or wood pulp. Characteristics: fast drying, wrinkle- and shrinkage-resistant, crisp or soft depending on end use, luxurious in appearance.

ACRYLIC - A manufactured fiber made from long-chain synthetic polymers. Characteristics: wrinkle resistance; low moisture absorbency and quick-drying; provides warmth yet lightweight, soft and resilient.

ALPACA - The fleece from an Alpaca, a cousin to the llama. Alpaca fleece is similar in characteristics to wool, but softer, silkier and more lustrous.

BANDED COLLAR - A shirt without a fold-over collar; there is only the band at the neck.

BARTACK - A close series of stitches crossing a piece of cloth in order to reinforce at a point of concentrated strain (e.g. belt loop or patch pocket corner).

BASKET WEAVE - A variation of the plain weave in which two or more threads weave alike in both warp (down) and filling (across) directions, joined in the regular order of the plain weave. So named for the basket-like pattern of the weave.

BATIK - A method of resist dyeing which employs wax as the resist. The pattern is covered with wax, and the fabric is then dyed: the wax patterns will not take the dye. The wax is removed after dyeing by boiling the fabric or applying solvent. The fabric is often streaked where the dye has gone through cracks in the wax. Batik dyeing originated in Indonesia.

BESOM - A narrow piece of fabric that works as an edging on a pocket; can be single besom, one side of pocket opening or double besom, both sides.

BOX PLEAT - Two small, back to back outward facing pleats that have a box- like appearance. On shirts, box pleats are positioned in the center back at the bottom of the yoke to allow ease of movement in the shoulders and arms.

BROADCLOTH - A fine, closely woven, lustrous cotton or cotton/poly blend made in plain weave with a fine rib in the direction of the filling (across). The filling yarn is heavier and has less twist than the warp yarn (down). The cloth is usually mercerized, and has a soft, firm finish.

BRUSHING - A finishing process for woven or knit fabrics in which brushes or other abrading elements are used to raise a nap (a fuzzy or downy surface). Brushed fabrics have a soft, slightly weathered, broken-in feel.

BUTTON-DOWN COLLAR - Having buttonholes on the collar points so they fasten to the shirt.

CAMP COLLAR - A one-piece collar that lays flat, part of the shirt also lays flat to create a notch. Also called a Convertible Collar or Notched Collar.

CANVAS - A general classification of strong, firm, closely woven fabrics usually made with cotton. A heavier, open weave comprised of plied yarns (a number of single yarns, usually three, twisted together). Characteristics: very hard-wearing, generally water-resistant.

CASHMERE - The fleece that comes from a Cashmere goat. These animals roam at high elevations (10,000 - 15,000 ft.), hence their very warm, soft fleece. Garments made with cashmere are normally more expensive because of limited yield (one goat produces only 4 ounces of fleece a year).

CHAMBRAY - A general class of plain weave, usually cotton, made with a colored warp (down) and white filling (across). Most often made using blue and white, but also available in stripes, checks and figured patterns.

COMBING - The removal of short fibers or noils from material so that the resulting yarn be composed of larger fibers. The comb straightens and arranges them in parallel order.

CORDUROY - A strong, durable fabric with cotton ground and vertical cut-pile stripes (wales) formed by an extra system of filling yarns. The foundation of the fabric can be either a plain or twill weave. Of all cotton fabrics, corduroy is the warmest because its wales form an insulated cushion of air.

COTTON - A vegetable fiber consisting of unicellular hairs attached to the seed of the cotton plant. The normal color of cotton is light to dark cream, and its chemical composition is almost pure cellulose. A distinct feature of the mature fiber is its spirality or twist. In fabrics, cotton makes for strong, versatile, cool-wearing and comfortable garments.

CREPE - A general classification of fabric characterized by a broad range of crinkled or gained surface effects. Methods of making crepe include the use of hard twisted yarns, special chemical treatment, special weaves and embossing.

DART - A tuck in the fabric that is sewn. It is used to define the shape of a garment making a two dimensional piece of fabric into a three-dimensional garment. Darts are usually seen where the body curves: bust, waist, hip.

DENIM - A well-known basic cotton or blended fabric in a right- or left-hand woven twill. Generally, the warp (down) is dyed blue with a white filling (across). Also called "dungaree."

DOBBY - A general term for a fabric woven on a special dobby loom, which allows the weaving of small, geometric figures. These patterns are beyond the range of simple looms, yet too limited to be produced economically by Jacquard loom. A dobby weave can be distinguished from a plain weave by its more ornate and intricate woven appearance.

FLANNEL - Generally, a cotton or wool fabric, napped on one or both sides (usually both), then bleached, dyed or printed, and brushed or rerun through the napping machine to revive the nap. Flannel fabrics are very soft and cozy.

FLEECE - 1). A heavy napped surface, most often in knit goods, made with a heavy and soft-spun back yarn, which is napped in finishing (e.g. the inside surface of a sweatshirt). 2). Wool sheared from sheep or other animals in the wool class. The term is especially used for the entire coat of wool shorn from the sheep at one time; it is generally taken off the animal in one piece.

GARMENT DYEING - The garment is first produced, then the complete garment is dyed.

GARMENT WASH - The garment is constructed and then washed to soften the fabric and minimize shrinkage.

GAUGE - A measurement used in knitted garments that reflects the size of the needles used to knit the garment. The larger the gauge, the smaller the needle - therefore, the finer the knit.

GORE - Vertical panels in a skirt or dress; enhances the fit of a garment.

GROMMET - Little air holes reinforced with metal ring, usually on jackets, hats or shoes to allow ventilation.

GROSGRAIN - A firm, closely woven, ribbed fabric. It has a dressy appearance and is used for ribbons, neckties, hatbands and trimmings.

GUSSET - A triangular piece of fabric inserted into a garment to improve the fit or for reinforcement (e.g. on the sleeve of a jacket under the arm to allow for extra layering).

HERRINGBONE TWILL - A broken twill weave composed of vertical sections which are alternately right hand and left hand in direction, resembling the vertebral structure of the herring (zigzag). The twill changes direction perfectly where the weave breaks, balancing the overall pattern of the fabric.

HOLLYWOOD WAISTBAND - The waistband is the same piece of fabric as the rest of the garment. Advantages are that it has a smooth silhouette making the transition from hip to waist more gradual.

JACQUARD - A system of weaving which, because of a pattern-making mechanism of great versatility, permits the production of very ornate, complex woven designs. This type of weaving is used for tapestry, figured necktie and dress fabric, and figured patterns on knit goods (sweaters).

JERSEY - A generic term for a plain knitted fabric; its principal distinction is that it is not a fabric with a distinct rib (e.g. T-shirt fabric).

KNIT - Knit fabrics are made up of a series of interlocking loops that result in a flexible construction. All knits have some stretch.

LINEN - One of the oldest textile fibers known. Though the fiber and the fabric are both commonly known as linen, it is actually flax, the fiber of the Linum plant. Linen is generally favored for its fine, strong, cool-wearing properties. It drapes away from the skin rather than clinging to it. In knitwear, linen is combined with other natural or synthetic fibers for improved strength and resiliency.

MERCERIZATION - A treatment of cotton yarn or fabric to increase its luster. Its affinity for dyes is also enhanced. In the process, the material is immersed under tension in a sodium hydroxide (caustic soda) solution. This later is neutralized in acid. The process causes a permanent swelling of the fiber, thus increasing its luster.

NYLON - The generic term for man-made fibers composed of polyamides derived from coal and petroleum. Characteristics: high strength, elasticity, low water absorption and quick-drying.

OMBRE - A color effect woven into the fabric that has gradual changes in shade from light to dark, generally produced by arranging different tones in the warp.

PIGMENT DYEING - A process in which a specific type of dye is applied to the surface of a fabric, then after one washing it fades into a softer color. The color will slowly continue to fade with age. Pigment dyed products from Territory Ahead are prewashed and will not harm other garments during washing after they've been washed once.

PLACKET - An opening with fabric piecing and buttons or snaps on a garment that facilitates dressing. Plackets can be at the neck of a shirt, the cuff of a sleeve, or the waist of a skirt or pair of pants.

PLEATS - Small tucks in clothing to allow for extra room and ease of movement. Pleats can be seen at the waist of pants or skirts, the cuff of a sleeve, the waist or bust area of a blouse or dress.

POLYESTER - A manufactured fiber made from long-chain synthetic polymers. Characteristics: crease-resistance, quick-drying, great shape retention, high strength, abrasion resistance and easy care.

PRINTING - Applying color(s) in definite, repeated patterns of fabric by any one of a number of printing methods. Color is deposited in thick paste form and treated with steam or chemicals to cause it to migrate into or adhere to textile material. The design is not woven into the cloth but stamped in after the cloth is woven or knit.

RAMIE - A strong, soft fiber yielded by the inner bark of the Ramie plant. The fiber is white, soft, lustrous and slightly coarser than flax (linen) when degummed and bleached. Ramie fabrics are strong, smooth and durable.

RAYON - A generic term for man-made fibers composed of regenerated cellulose derived from trees, cotton and woody plants. Characteristics: high absorbency, bright or dull luster, pleasant feel or hand, good draping qualities, ability to be dyed in brilliant colors and superior strength.

REACTIVE DYE - A type of dye that completely saturates the fabric for a long lasting color.

RIB KNIT - A double-knit fabric in which the rib wales or vertical rows of stitches intermesh alternatively on the face and the back of the fabric. Rib knit fabrics have good elasticity and shape retention, especially in the width.

RISE - The measurement on pants from the front waist between the legs up to the back waist. This refers to how high or low a pant will ride (i.e. "short-waist" or "long-waist")

SANDBLASTING - The garment is literally sandblasted for a worn-in look; fabric has to be very durable to withstand the abuse, usually 14 oz. denim for jeans.

SANDWASH - Sand is put into the industrial wash for a softened feel and texture for the garment.

SHIRTTAIL HEM - The curved bottom hem of a shirt - higher on the side hip area (for ease of movement) dipping low in the front and back (so that the shirt will stay tucked into pants).

SILK - Continuous protein filament produced by the larvae of various insects, especially the caterpillar when constructing its cocoon. The chief portion of commercial silk is produced in Japan and China. Characteristics: resiliency, aesthetics, elasticity and strength, warm in winter, cool in summer.

SLUB - A lump or thick place on yarn caused by small lengths of yarn adhering to it during the spinning process. This adds a random texture to the fabric when the yarn is woven or knit into a garment.

SPREAD COLLAR - An open collar with no buttons to hold the collar points to the shirt. Spread collars have two pieces: the fold over collar part and the stand that keeps the collar close to the neck.

STANDARD WAISTBAND - An extra piece of fabric that is sewn to the body of the pants, shorts or skirt.

TENCEL - A cellulosic fiber produced by Courtaulds, spun from an amine oxide solvent that offers a higher degree of polymerization than is available with rayon. Characteristics: pleasant feel or hand, good draping qualities, ability to be dyed in brilliant colors, superior strength, and easy care.

VENTED BOTTOM - The bottom hem of a shirt that is cut straight with side slits to allow ease of movement. Vents are usually 2" deep.

WALE - In woven fabric, one series of ribs, cords, or raised portions. In corduroy fabric, wales per inch are counted to distinguish broad- from fine-textured cloth. The higher the wale number, the finer the texture of the fabric.

WEIGHT OF CLOTH (OZ.) - A description or classification of many fabrics by weight per yard.

WELT - A piece of fabric that works as an edging on a pocket; usually a single welt and wider than a besom.

WOOL - Primarily the fleece of a sheep or lamb - but can also refer to fleece of the alpaca, angora, cashmere goat, camel and vicuna. The fiber is distinguished from hair by the character of its covering: minute overlapping scales, which give it a felting property. Characteristics: strong and resilient, soft and warm, wicks away moisture and dyes well for rich coloration.

WOVEN - Woven fabrics are produced by the interlacing of yarns. Each filling yarn goes alternately over and under each warp yarn.

YARN-DYEING - Dyeing of individual yarns before weaving or knitting. Compared to garment dyes or prints, yarn-dyed fabrics boast richer, longer lasting color.

YOKE - An added section of fabric in a shirt or pants that enhances the fit. On a shirt, the yoke is usually on the back across the top shoulder area but can also be on the front shoulder to chest area. On pants, it is generally on the back of jeans-style pants located below the waistband.

"Perfect 42 long. "
By Paul

"The unique and beautiful silk fabric is sort of mid weight resulting in a very casual look. Sort of haning on you, so dependent on body type you may find the fit a bit odd. The outside pockets are sewn shut and if you open them, as I do for utilitarian reasons, they will also be casually slouchy. I bought one of these some years ago, loved it, and although it still has some wear left in it, I decided to get another. Both colors are very classy due to the weave of the fabric. A great coat for casual (not dressy) use. Great for travel."

"This is NOT a dress coat, not even close. It's an odd fit, large in most areas, just not proportioned right. However, if its just a grab and go, keep you warm like a sweater with a bit more bohemian college years cred it comes real, real close with only one short coming. The outside pockets are sown shut!!! If your just bouncing around YOU NEED POCKETS. All that being said its ok at $95 but do not pay a cent more. Thats the clearance price and I'm clear now why its clearance."

"The coat is actually pretty nice. I didn't expect a $500 quality level from a 150 dollar coat. Color was exactly as pictured and what I wanted, and its the perfect weight. But the fit is bizarre and unfortunately not unexpected. It has a relatively roomy body as though it was made for a larger person, but these long, thin arms and ridiculously tight armholes. Knowing this was likely (it is territory ahead sizing), I ordered one size up and deciding I liked it, had it tailored. If I hadn't bought it on sale though, I would not have bought it at all. The full price and the the cost of tailoring is more than this coat is worth."

"Oh, I so wanted this jacket to work out--I love the texture of the fabric and thought the navy color would work well with jeans and a light blue shirt but alas, the color I received was not even close to navy. It appeared more a black with brown elements. Had to return it..."

"I like the fabric, but there are a couple of problems. The jacket arrived so wrinkled I had to send it to the cleaners before it was wearable. Now it is still slouchy looking on me because it is slightly oversized in shoulders and length and very full fitted (boxy). I have a trim build, but often buy sport coats this size off the rack that fit great. However, for this jacket to look good, it will have to be significantly tailored."

"I finally ordered this coat and when it came in, I was disappointed that the left shoulder pad was scrunched up into a wad and I could not flatten out, sent it back for an exchange. The replacement arrived and overall the fit/hang is just too sloppy. Loved the fabric. To tailor in order to fit my build would be half as much as the original coat cost. Sent back. Bummed."

"If you are looking for a casual, deconstructed jacket that you can throw rumpled into your suitcase and then throw on with a pair of jeans and go immediately out for a casual event or dinner, then look no further! This is the jacket for you. It is incredibly comfortable, breathable and stylish. The charm of this jacket is a stylish casual look that is a blend of comfort and low maintenance travel qualities. I have gotten many compliments on it. Caveat: While its versatility lies in seasons, it is inflexibly casual. For me this is perfect and I reserve other jackets for my dressier needs. It will NOT work in dressier situations and will not work with most slacks. If you are looking for a jacket that can look great in jeans and then dress up to go to a business or higher end event - this is NOT your jacket.It is a comfortable travel companion which I plan to get many years of use out of. I may purchase the black as well.Final note: It appears that the chest pocket is a fa"

"When this sports coat arrived it was a wrinkled mess. In addition, although I have worn "Regular" all my life, this was too long in both sleeve length and body. I returned it and ordered a "Short", which also arrived a wrinkled mess. I spent thirty minutes ironing it (and cutting off lots of thread ends in the process) and I still can't get the wrinkles out. It wasn't even folded along the natural pattern. So an expensive trip to the dry cleaners to have it pressed. The manufacture of this garment was shoddy and the material is thin. But I don't want to pay for return shipping again, so I'll make the most of it. It looks great in the catalog but I'm disappointed."

"I ordered this for my husband. The jacket arrived horribly wrinkled, the arms were super long for a 30 R, but what we disliked most was the narrowed, tapered at the waist cut. The jacket as depicted does not reveal this; it looks much more streamlined. When buttoned, the fit was tight. This one went back."

"Two comments: 1. While 42L is usually my size, this one was both to long and too big in the body. At 6 ft 1 in, 168 lbs, this needed a larger overall guy to fit it, although the sleeves were fine for my 36in arms. 2. This may be a three seasons coat in much of the country. It is much to light for that designation here in Montana's mountains. Its a July-August coat from my perspective."

"I got this for my husband since he had the matching vest already and loves it. He also had the Navy version of this jacket in a 42L. When he tried the Tobacco one I bought him in a 42L, it was tight and the sleeves were a bit shorter. He got out the Navy jacket and tried them on side-by-side. Sure enough, there is a noticeable difference in fit, and the style is also slightly different. He's planning to return it for a 44L, but it's odd to have two of the same style and brand that don't match in size. Could the manufacturer have switched gears in mid-sale? Strange."

"How unfortunate that this good (very close to great) jacket has deal-breaking bad points. The fabric is beautiful with a nice hand and a truly all seasons appeal. I found the 42R very true to size. But the 3 button cut is unfortunately off, causing the jacket when buttoned to drape poorly at the top button, despite an otherwise fine fit. TA is (has been?) known for cool details which make a garment stand out, so its really too bad that the mundane plastic buttons (as others have mentioned)look like the cheapest on the planet! This, frankly, is a deal breaker, as replacing them is just too much hassle and cost. C'mon TA, how hard would it have been to design this with cooler buttons... shell, coconut, etched wood, even nicer plastic?? Falling flat with such a minor thing is a major failure, so this one's going back... too bad!"

"Really wanted to like it, but for my 6' 165lbs, a 42L, which I can usually wear, is just too big. All TTA clothes seem to be designed for a loose fit on a really big guy. I've returned everything I bought in the last 3 months. I give up."

"This jacket was as nice or nicer than I expected from the photo. It arrived with a serious need for pressing -- not wearable as it arrived, but looked great once that was taken care of. The jacket is versatile, casual, elegant, unique, and far more interesting than what I can usually find. TA has finally learned how to make sport jackets. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because the sleeves were and inch and a quarter too long! (bought 38r) This jacket will need to go to a tailor before I can wear it, but it is well worth it, and the price is so unexpected for a jacket of this quality that I don't mind. This will go to the top of my list along with the Island Mood Indigo (which had sleeves that were perfectly sized.) I'm very happy I gave TA another chance after years of staying away. I hope the two jackets and two shirts I bought are a sign of more to come!"

"Of three TA blazers I just purchased in hopes of finding a flexible, casual blazer in my size 38, this one is my favorite. The other two were solid navy blue (Clever Trevor -- great but 38 was huge, and Well-kept Travel Blazer in S-- neat features but runs large and maybe too wrinkly.) and not nearly as interesting to look at as this one. This attractive and lightweight coat will not show wrinkles or spills as much as a solid blazer, and a 38S fits my 5-9, 140lb frame pretty well except the sleeves are 2 inches too long. The "navy" pattern is very unique and looks good with blue,black,brown or white pants. I appreciate the steam suggestion for wrinkles mentioned by another reviewer. Nice jacket!"

"This is an addendum to my previous review of this coat in Navy; added because I've discovered that under varying light conditions, this handsome coat has a distinctly different appearance!Under artificial (incandescent) light, it appears as a predominantly-brown tweed, with blue highlights.But under natural light, it appears charcoal-gray, with a hint of blue; like the internet pics.In any case, a great jacket! These are some of the nicest sportcoats I've seen in many years, due to the rich color and texture of the fabric.Also love the feel of it. Lightweight, drapes nicely.Grab these up while you still can!"

"I first bought this coat in Tobacco, and liked it so much I ordered it in Navy.Love it! Like the Tobacco, it has a very rich and interesting look due to the intermixed colors and deep texture. Like other reviewers have noted, NO WAY this coat can be described as 'navy'! Nor is it charcoal grey as it appears online.As one reviewer noted, it actually comes across overall as more of a brown tweed, with hints of blue-grey. But however you describe it: a VERY handsome coat!In fact, I liked the Tobacco and Navy so much I've ordered the Sage, sight unseen: for some reason, TA doesn't show an example of that color on their website. But if it's as attractive as the other two, I want it!"

"Excellent coat! Great fabric: subtle blend of colors-- reds, browns and blues-- making up the overall dark gold ('tobacco') making it a good match for many of my shirts. I usually wear a 40 L, but since that size wasn't offered, I took a chance on 40 R: perfect fit. Highly recommended, good value for the price IMHO.Another hit from Teritory Ahead!"

"The only problem, aside from its mundane fashionability, is its bulkiness. OK, it's not high-priced, and made for the average Joe, but nowadays guys look for a sleeker image, and this only suits a rugged-traveler utility, not a happy hour classiness."

"Bought this in navy for my husband to go to a wedding. I would call the color maybe a hint of navy. Looks more like a brownish tweed. My husband is 5'8 140 lbs I got 38 S. Perfect fit except a bit short. He loves the fit and weight of the jacket... I think it looks a little "old mannish" and too casual for this occasion. I agree that it would look great with a pair of jeans for a more casual affair."

"Love It! My first Territory Ahead purchase. I am a normally a 42R fit and this 42R was right on for my slightly under 6-01/180 build; looks good with a loose fit feel, very comfortable. Versatile enough to wear to the office with slacks or as casual with jeans. Added plus is that it is lightweight enough to wear during warmer months without feeling stuffy. I like clothes that can be worn with a variety of colors and this tobacco sport coat with all the earthtone colors hits the mark."

"This jacket is nice... good fit and nice material. Two things you should be aware of... the buttons are ugly and cheap. I cut off all of them after my husband, who bought this jacket, commented on how the quality and color of the buttons didn't match the jacket. While I was sewing on the new buttons, I realized the manufacturer sewed the 'extra' buttons, still in a plastic bag, into the jacket!!! Crazy. Good thing the dry cleaner didn't get too aggressive with the hot steam press! I had to rip out a bit of the stitching attaching the lining to the jacket to get that plastic bag out of the inside front bottom of the jacket. It was in an odd place too... made the jacket hang funny. Other than that, it's a great garment."

"I recently purchased the All Seasons Silk Sport Coat in Tobacco. The fabric is interwoven with multicolor threads lending it a great deal of visual interest, and is light enough to be comfortable in warmer weather. The fit is true to size. I'm 5' 8", and a bit on the heavy side at 190 pounds. Depending on the sport coat I usually need either a 44 regular or a 44 short. I went with the 44 regular for this order, and I'm very pleased with it. The coat hangs beautifully, and is a good length--I expect that the 44 short might have been a bit *too* short. I did have to have the sleeves shortened slightly (I almost always have to have the sleeves shortened on sport coats--this is not a criticism of the fit). I am seriously considering purchasing the Navy version as well."

"I needed a jacket to wear with jeans and dress them up a little. This jacket was exactly what I was after. It's not too often you can find a fully lined jacket in this price range. I would describe the finish on the fabric as coarse. The colors in the Tobacco jacket bring many shirt and pant options into play. It was on the mark matched with a white shirt and jeans. The fit was on the money for me, and I usually find Territory Ahead sizes to be a little big."

"I bought the "Navy" but out of the box it is a medium gray, with intriguing brown, sea green and charcoal thread weave. The texture is masculine and interesting up close. This coat hangs well for a medium weight silk, probably because there are well crafted shoulder pads. The pads are more prominent than depicted. I am 6' with a 42" chest and 33" waist. The medium fits fine, perhaps a quarter inch short in the arms. Get the next size up if you have a bigger chest or waist. It is an athletic fit on me, and although I prefer a quality navy tee underneath, my babe loves it with a crisp white open collar dress shirt. Tremendous value for this level of sophistication."

"I've been looking for a silk sport coat for a while - something I can wear to dinners and "business casual" client meetings and this definitely fits the bill. I have a bit of an athletic build and this jacket tapers nicely to fit me well, as I normally have to have my sport coats taken in quite a bit. Not with this one. This is a soft jacket that nice enough for client visits and casual enough for regular office use. Perfect for me."

"I generally have trouble finding variety in my selected size (44S), so I was delighted to see this silk sportcoat was available! I first ordered the tobacco color, and I was so pleased with the fit, craftsmanship, and color, I re-ordered it in blue. It goes great with jeans or khakis. You will not be disappointed. I gave the coat just 4 stars for value becaue I think a better price point might be $119."

"This sport coat is truly for all seasons- I can wear with a short sleeve shirt in summer/spring or layer during fall/winter. Very versatile. I have both colors and they go well with dress pants or a more relaxed pair of jeans. I have many other sport coats but these are the ones I get compliments on when I wear them."
