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.

"Buttons are too small."

"My third cord shirt from TA. It's a bit lightweight for the Rockies winters, but good for fall and winter days that aren't snowy and sub-freezing."

"Great color. Light weight. Going to be one of my favs. "

"Shirt is great - a bit darker than the photos on the site, but nonetheless the colors are good. Cord texture is nice but not overwhelming. Shirt is on the lighter side of medium weight. It looks fantastic with jeans or other similar pants, and is great for weekends or even the office. Sizing: I'm 5'9" and 170 lbs, and am right on the line between sizes M and L with most shirts. The steamboat cord shirt is a bit on the large size, so you might want to order a size down."

"This is the sixth Old Steamboat shirt, I have purchased. They are comfortable, well tailored, well made and durable, the first one is 3 years old and looks as nice as the first time I wore it."

"Mixed feelings. I got the Burnt Red and Sky corduroy colors based on the mailed catalog pix. Neither product was the same color. The Burnt Red looked washed out and not at all brilliant like the mailing; the Sky was more New Jersey sky than Montana sky. I would have sent them back, except the softness and perfect drape of the fabric was quite special. They are very nice to wear. Note to TA: Work on your dye supplier!"

"I purchased my first Old Steamboat Plaid back in 2016 and after wearing it a couple of times, I posted a four star review lauding the fit, the cut and the look; the only thing I could not speak to was the durability. The shirt I just received is my sixth Old Steamboat shirt, number seven is on the way and I am still wearing the first one, which looks as good as it did the day I received it. This is a definitely a five star shirt."

"The Old Steamboat shirts are always, soft, well-made, well-fitting, and unbelievably comfortable... Whether or not to get another is determined only by new color choices - and this year’s dark red is exceptional!! Thanks, TA for setting the bar as high as you do!!! Ellis W, Baltimore..."

"I am a long time customer, having loved TA’s sophisticated plaids and stripes for decades. I bought two Steamboat shirts a couple years ago and just bought two more. I have to say that these two, the red and the blue, are off the color representation of both the catalog and the website. The colors are more like the paper catalog, but the pattern essentially disappears and is barely apparent. The website rendering of these shirts is way off in color. Will keep them as they are useful, but..."

"I own a half dozen Old Steamboat corduroy shirts. They are some of my favorite winter shirts. Until the burnt red color, the delivered product has always been a close match to both the website and the catalogue. The burnt red shirt I rec'd. had barely discernible strips. It really looked like a brown solid shirt. I like muted plaids, but this particular shirt was so muted that I returned it. "

"These shirts are good quality, and fit my husband so well. He has several, and wash well. I hope the company keeps carrying them for years to come. Anything corduroy, turn inside out before washing, and the garment will last longer."

" I love the softness and drape of the material and the fact that the shirts are comfortable for 3 season wear. The fit, like baby bear's porridge, is "just right" and they are proving to be quite durable. I bought my first "Old Steamboat" just under two years ago and as long as TA doesn't "improve" them, I intend to keep adding to the collection. "

"I got the Deep Purple (which is not really "DEEP Purple"). It's got a weathered appearance and is quite nice. Perfect for cool and cold weather n' jeans or khakis and under a jacket. I'm 5'9, 36w, 42R, and this fits just fine for me. The sleeves are a little long but I expect that. All in All, I like it just fine. Quality is terrific."

I don't think I needed the tall. Otherwise the shirts fit great. Lots of compliments have come my way regarding the shirts."

"I own pretty much every Old Steamboat Plaid Cord Shirt they made. As soon as the temperature dips below 60 on they go till the middle of Spring. Warm, comfortable like pajamas and last a long time. I am thinking my oldest shirts are 8-9 years old and only now showing some wear. When the temperature goes over 60 they get too hot and go into storage till the middle of Fall."

"Quality and styling certainly have gone down throughout the years with the material of these steamboat shirts. My father has a shirt circa 1990's that is impeccable still to this day and I really wish they were still made that same way. Bring back the button on the front pocket and perhaps consider a button on the back collar. All that being said, still a very sufficient cord shirt with excellent color options. "

"I have always admired TA shirts for their vibrant colors. But I always bought from another east coast company I know well. I decided to try this cord shirt, only because I had a discount coupon. I was extremely disappointed and returned it immediately. The colors are not as sharp as in the catalog and the closer you get to it, frankly, the uglier it looks. It looks like it has been washed hundreds of times - faded and worn. Never seen anything like this. Thumbs down."

"These are great shirts, but the original colors from a few years ago (2011?) were much better. I buy a couple each year, but would like to see some more tasteful plaids. "
January 17, 2017
"Beautiful shirt, soft yet classy. But we're having a problem with sizing. These shirts are BIG if you order tall. Why does "tall" imply "big" as well? Territory Ahead has always been hip with textured shirts so I figured the shirts as younger, slimmer fit. Not so. The "large tall" is for one hefty giant. Just received the medium talls and these also are for barrel-shaped fellas on the tall side. Bummer. My husband got a medium, not "tall," and he says it fits his 5'9" frame OK but a bit wide."

"I purchased the green plaid shirt for my grown stepson who is loathe to wear anything that makes too much of a statement. I was worried the colors might be too bright but they are muted and he says it is his new favorite shirt. I ordered the XLT in turquoise plaid for his brother. Those colors are true to the pictures. He is 6'2" and on the lean side and the XLT fits him well through the shoulders and sleeves but is about an inch longer than what would look best. He too is happy with the shirt."

"In terms of fit, comfort and attractiveness, this shirt is easily five stars. I bought three: two solids and the salmon/blue plaid. Really good-looking shirts. Where the shirt fails is in how it comes out of the dryer. The front button strip comes out stiffly rumpled when it should lie fairly flat. I don't mind a few wrinkles in a casual shirt but have no interest in ironing casual shirts or sending them to the cleaners. I hope these great shirts can be improved in future."

"Love the texture, weight, color of the corduroy shirt. I have a couple purchased years ago and they continue to feel and hold up fine. My problem is with the sleeve lengths: too long for me! So I roll the sleeves up when wearing the shirt, but (for me) would love this shirt if the sleeves were 32"."

"These Old Steamboat Corded shirts are fantastic. They are the best buy I've had in a long time, due to the impressive look of the shirt, combined with the reasonable price. I bought 6 of these in a combination of solids and plaids, and they are all beautiful. They also all fit great. Whoever designs these shirts deserves an A+. Beautiful fabric!"

"I love the feel of the material, it is substantial, yet soft. The fit is easy, neither to tight or to loose, and I like the muted colors, that combined with the softness of the material makes this shirt a new "old" favorite. I purchased the ocean, have my eye on the purple and have added the honey to my Christmas list."

I too thought they were expensive but was able to get the 20% off which helped at least cover the high cost of the shipping. I will continue to order them for him if you keep this style in stock which I hope you do. 11/13/15 Marsha Bonners Ferry, Idaho"

"My husband loves these shirts. It is really hard to find a nice, patterned, corduroy shirt in a Tall. They are really soft and are not too thick that they are stiff as some corduroy shirts are. He probably has four of them by now, as I usually get him one for Christmas. It washes well and doesn't shrink; even the oldest one looks great. I do think they are a tad overpriced, but I try to get them when I have a coupon. I'm sure he'll get another one next year too!"
October 30, 2015
"The comfort, quality and durability of these shirts keeps me buying them, and they're the only shirt I'll wear during fall and winter. I usually buy a new one every year, I have a couple that are 4-5 years old and are far from being worn out. Based on that, even though they are a bit expensive they're still a great value (wait for the 20% off deal). You'll get some compliments on how good they look. I'm 5'8, 170# and wear a size medium over colored Territory Ahead t-shirts."
October 24, 2015
"I've lost count of how many of these I own. I got two when they first came out in 2009. I still wear those two around the house all year--they fit so well, are soft and comfortable and last forever. I wear them everywhere because they look good for "nice" but are tough enough for everything else."

"The colors are perfect, not too dark not too light so as to be too pastel looking for a man. It is soft and fits my sweetie perfectly without being too large or too tight. He has a little bit of a belly and it works fine for that. It is my new favorite shirt on him. We will buy more. You need more things in tall sizes. He can only wear tall shirts and we can't find them anywhere else."

"I have several Steamboat cord shirts. They're good tucked in and great untucked over a tee shirt. I use them a lot in cooler weather in place of a jacket. They have a relaxed fit and the new turquoise plaid is subtlely faded. They launder well and if a placket folds over (it happens) I wet it and press it with my hand... no ironing required."

The shirt I ordered was Indigo and it looks MUCH more vivid in the catalog and also online.However, it was no where close and looked like it was almost bleached.

"I had been watching this shirt for quite a while. Had trouble pulling the trigger at $69.50. Just before Christmas a sale was going on with a discount plus free shipping over $100.00. Got this shirt and a Cathedral Rock for about $52 a piece. At that price this is a fair value. Full price is a bit steep. Love the feel, color, and apparent quality (I've only had them a month). Both shirts now top the list of my favorites. Ordered XXL and they fit like XXL. The photos on line have a bit more bluish tint than the actual color, but acceptable (mine is sienna)."

"These are really nice shirts. I bought the autumn multi color in a large-tall size and I am very happy with it. I am 6'1", 200 lbs. I usually wear either a L or XL. The L tall size is perfect. The material is slightly lighter than some cord material. This makes the shirt extremely comfortable like an old favorite. It also makes it easier to tuck inside your pants if you are a bit old fashioned like me. I have worn it twice now and had several compliments. I am asking my family for another one of these shirts for Christmas as I love this shirt."

"Bought this in gray blue last fall and have not regretted it. Highly recommended, excellent fit and quality. It's great for most occasions- I've worn it camping, working, out with friends, on dates, and always get a good word or two- even from my high school students, amusingly enough. A great buy."

"Got this shirt in the red windowpane for my husband of 37 years and he likes it a lot - wears it every week. Washes well, comes out of the dryer ready to wear. (I like that) The soft faded looking fabric is absolutely wonderful - I like to touch it (when its on him) all the time. Ordered his regular size and it fits in a relaxed way, just how he likes it. I did not notice any shrinkage in the wash. Once again, I have to thank TA for having such great clothing for men as well as women."

Although the colors were more muted than I had expected that has turned out to be a plus. I have received many compliments. The fit is perfect. Love the shirt!!!"

Quite honestly I am thrilled with the quality of this shirt. My husband loves the warm and cozy feel of the shirt and the fact that we can wash it ourselves and it retains it's size and shape. Overall a fantastic buy and we highly recommend."

"This shirt looked great in the catalog and just as good when it arrived, but lost all of it's luster and shrank a size after just a couple of washes. The color appears bleached out. I loved the feel and look of this shirt the first time I tried it on. Isn't there something that can be done about the fabric? I would love another one, but not of this quality. I've never had bad luck w/Territory Ahead before, but I'll be reading the reviews from now on."

"Got this for my husband for Christmas and he wears it over a long sleeved t-shirt. As soon as I wash it, he has it back on again. He says what he likes is that it doesn't cling to the t-shirt and is comfortable and warm. We go back and forth between mediums and larges for him for TA shirts. This one, ordered in the sunset color, I bought in a large and it was the right guess. It's a little more muted than it looks in the picture, but that's great as he can wear it with a variety of pants and t-shirts. It has held up well following washing instructions and requires no ironing. If it goes on sale again and his size is available, I'll probably purchase another."
