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.

"Almost exactly what I wanted. A little too thick the corduroy is, for my taste, and the color a little too bright. Who knows what it will look like after a few washings though. Very satisfied am I with the delivery and service of TA. Overall excellent purchase and experience. Will be buying more TA products in the future."

"Put the shirt on when it arrived two days ago and, except for sleeping, haven't taken it off. Wife complimented me on my choice. That's a good thing. Brown color is great and buttons are more subtle than in online photo. Like the buttons. LOVE THE CRISS CROSS PATTERN. Soft, not heavy, and the large fits me just right, leaving a bit of room in the event of shrinking. Not worried. I'd have given 5 stars except for the wale count. Count is low, so the shirt gives a rustic and less refined look."

The are perfect for the mild San Francisco climate. They hold up extremely well, although the 15-year-old shirt is finally starting to fade a bit. I hope TA never stops carrying them!"

"My wife bought me four of these a few years ago. I thought she was being extravagant. She was not. These are my favorite shirts. I wear them all the time and after countless washings, the color and texture don't seem to have changed much. The thick rich fabric is warm, substantial. They actually make me look forward to late October and miss early April here in New England."

"As usual, TA shirts don't fit me well. The smalls are too small and the mediums are too long to be worn untucked. As another review said, this shirt is cumbersome to tuck in. And as I have not worn mine too much I can't speak on how well they hold up. If only it fit me better I might wear it more. But quality seems OK, the buttons haven't fallen off yet like other TA shirts."

"The Crisscross Cord and I really get along, with two notable exceptions: 1) it's a bit heavier-weigh than I expected; I find it bulky and cumbersome to tuck inside pants and 2) I find the tail and too long and balloon-ish to wear outside. By the way, this is one enduring issues I have with TA: so many of your shirts that I think would look good worn untucked are designed with tails that, in my opinion, don't look especially complimentary when worn untucked. Otherwise this shirt is a welcome addition to the Fall/Winter wardrobe."

"After seeing this shirt numerous times while surfing The Territory Ahead website and re-reading the reviews I decided to get two of the shirts the Blue Gray and Barn Red. I was pleasantly surprised I really like these shirts! Sad thing is I bought them as the weather here in the Reno area was getting warmer they are better suited for fall or early spring. Can't wait to wear them then!"

"He'd thought he had enough shirts, until I gave him this for Valentine's. "Comfortable and comforting" says he. "Rich-looking and appealing to touch" say I. "When they ask you where it came from, say Territory Ahead." "All right" says he, "but they can't have THIS one!""

"I always wait until I've worn and washed an item a couple times before I'm ready to pass judgment on it. I've done that with this shirt, and it passed with flying (but not fading) colors; now I have three of them in different colors. They wash up well, hold their color and don't shrink; they also don't wrinkle if you follow the washing instructions and get them out of the dryer right away. The fabric is a good weight, so I can wear it as an overshirt with a tee or with another layer or tuck it in when I don't want to be quite as casual. Overall, a good shirt, especially at the sale prices."

"Nice fabric and workmanship make for a great look and a long lasting shirt. My only complaint is the sleeves are not long enough even on the tall sizes. I think customers would be more tolerant of sleeves that are too long rather too short so why not make them longer?"

"Great fit, very comfortable middle-weight, good quality, bought the grey/blue which is really a deep blue and then liked it so much got the barn red, which is really more a rich deep red. When I wear these people keep coming up and touching the shirt thinking it is velvet or some rich fabric!"

"You do not have to be an extrovert to wear this shirt! While it is a unique take on corduroy, it is not over-the-top. The shirt is a bit on the heavy-weight side for my location (North Florida), but on those few days when it does get cold here this shirt is a nice option for casual wear. I have two of them in different colors. The colors stay true after washing. I wash on gentle cycle and hang-dry mine. In my experience, TTA shirts usually have long(er) sleeves. The sleeves on the regular Crisscross seem to be a bit shorter and more narrow than usual. It may annoy you if you have long or thick arms."

The texture created by the cross-cut cord is interesting and gives a different look (shades and shadows change with movement). The tall size is perfect for a 6'3" build - arms are long enough! TA is a favorite at our house."

"Love these cords. Have two of them and they keep me warm on these cold winter days. Soft and easy to take care of. Buttons should be sown on better though."

"I first bought this shirt several years ago. It quickly became my fav winter shirt. It's very comfortable and wears well. Might be the colors or maybe the cut of the material but you need to get used to people wanting to touch it. No problem- as long as they ask permisssion first. I ended up buying one of each color. GREAT shift"

"I don't often buy from Territory Ahead because the prices are a bit high for me. But every once in a while, I find something that will be a centerpiece for my wardrobe. The Crisscross Cord shirt is not just a cord shirt but so much more distinctive. It's definitely worth the extra bucks. I am completely satisfied and pleased."

"I got this for my husband for Christmas. It is a very soft shirt, and he likes it a lot. I think that the color, a golden color, is beautiful."

"Purchased 2 of these on sale for my husband who is thin but has very long arms. He has worn flannel shirts in winter for decades, I've been trying to transition him to corduroy and chamois which look more professional for work. The fit is good, not too baggy. The unique fabric is soft. The blue-gray color is more of a deep ocean. The ivy (which is not available as I write this) is very dark - from afar it looks almost black or deep brown, depending on the light. Even with all the good points, regular price for this shirt is a bit high for a shirt to wear for work. I know that on his own, my husband would never have paid even the sale price. I'm willing to pay a bit more for better style."

"I bought this shirt for my husband for Christmas this year. It arrived quickly and is even better than I expected. The workmanship is excellent as this shirt is very well made. I love the thick material and how it feels and it looks so good on him. This is the second purchase I have made and I know i'll be making more. I'm thoroughly satisfied with the quality of both items."

"I bought this shirt in 8 different colors for my husband. I never get tired of seeing him in this beautiful shirt because it looks totally different on him in every different color. It pops in and out of the washing machine and dryer and straight onto a hanger and back into his clothing closet. No ironing - it looks perfect. He has many other shirts but he never bothers to reach for them when he can have this Crisscross Corduroy Shirt. You will not be disappointed! I wasn't. Hope they never discontinue this shirt because it is top notch and a sure winner!"

"this shirt runs VERY large. Ordered an XXLT which is the normal size for my husband and it was HUGE. The shirt is beautiful - too bad they ran out of smaller sizes - i can see why they did"

"This shirt is way comfortable. Have worn it treking in the Mazatzals and Superstitions in AZ. Great for casual wear too. The only cord shirt that I consistently receive compliments on. Thanks TA!"

"This is the first corduroy shirt I have bought in years. The previous ones were rough and stiff, but not the crisscross cord. Being retired I favor the casual look. This is a great shirt to wear untucked over a tee or a mock turtle. I'm 6 ft. 190 lbs and the lg tall size fits my longer arms perfectly. I crave the cord !"

"I bought 8 of these shirts in two seperate orders in 8 different colors. XL tall fits perfectly. Nice, heavy shirt with a long tail. Very distinctive look and I receive compliments every time I wear one. Will probably order duplicates in case these ever wear out!!"

"This is my husband's new favorite shirt for cooler weather. I got him one in October for his birthday and he immediately started wearing it so I got him another one in a different color for Christmas. He loves the soft feel of the corduroy and the easy fit. They wash and dry beautifully, too."

"The shirt fits, and colors are great. The quality is poor. Every button is falling off, one came off on the second day. For such boutiquey pricing and image, the workmanship should be better. And priniting a disclaimer that I have the opportunity to waste my time to mail it back is an insult, but an acknowledgement that accept the status quo."
