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: 1-800-770-3387

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 TravelSmith 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.

"Got the Navy/Wisteria. Love everything about it. The look, the color, the classiness. Returned for a smaller size and am hoping the new one comes before my big trip!!! This coat is just stunning!!!"

"This is a wonderful coat. I wore it for the 1st time on a Danube River Cruise and it was perfect for our one rainy day ! "
September 15, 2019
"Love this versatile travel jacket. As was stated, it does run large but I chose to get it in my actual size so I could layer with sweaters etc underneath. If you want a more sleek profile then order a size down. Key for me was packability and the look once it leaves the suitcase. Winner!"

"I really love this coat. It packs well and warmer than you think. This is actually my second one. The first one (black/gray) was Large and very roomy. This time I bought the medium and it is perfect, still has room. Beautiful color, navy/wisteria. I will still keep the larger size if I cannot pass it on. "
July 13, 2019
"I got the butter/sesame color. Butter is VERY yellow, but cute, too. Coat is stylish. And compact packed in pouch. Be aware that the finish is shiny. Have not yet used in rainy weather, and my guess is that it would not protect from a "downpour". "
July 12, 2019
"This is a beautiful raincoat. I had looked at it in the catalog for a while and was lucky enough to find it on sale. I thought it might be too large from other ratings, but it is just large enough to wear over a bulky sweater of a jacket. I am very happy!"
July 10, 2019
"Beautiful, stunning coat! I bought the two-tone blue/aqua. Description was correct that it ran large...I usually wear 12-14, but the medium size was perfect. The flared collar is very stylish and eye-catching. The colors are brilliant, showstoppers. Very positive rating!"

"Love the coat but I own another coat like this bought several years ago. I always used as a raincoat and loved it. This one looked the same however this jacket is not a raincoat, I wore it on my recent trip to the UK which receives a lot of rain. I got soaked several times. Do not buy this coat as a raincoat. "

"Although I ordered a size lower than I normally would, the a-line shape of this coat made me look hippy and bulky. Overall it was just too much coat. "

"This is not what I consider 'packable'. To me, packable means lightweight and wrinkle resistant. The fabric is heavy and was wrinkled on arrival. Might work for you if you just need a raincoat. Returned. "

"I'm afraid the raincoat, while very light weight (a plus) it is much shinier than it appeared in the catalog. In addition, When worn on one side, the other side's color shows through. I'll be returning it. Luckily, I have another Travelsmith raincoat I like very well!! Sorry this didn't work out."
March 30, 2019
"Love the looks and feel. Chose beige / coco color for its versatility. Can hardly wait to wear it. "
March 28, 2019
"Way too big. Hood was way too deep so was bunched up around the neck. Too heavy and thick for packing. I returned it right away. "
March 20, 2019
"It's a beautiful coat. As other reviewers have said, though, consider downsizing. The shape of the coat is actually quite wide. It's tent-shaped rather than straight down the way it appears in the photos. "
March 15, 2019
"I've been eyeing this jacket for months, and finally decided to buy it. It's awesome - the style, color, and weight would be perfect for an upcoming trip to Europe - except for the unexpected wrinkle factor. I'd assumed after hanging it up for a day or two the wrinkles would fall out, since it's advertised as a packable garment. It may be packable, but the significant fold lines from shipping have yet to go away - after a week of hanging in my closet. Not what I'd expected."

"I love the reversible accordion hood rain jacket! I purchased the coat initially in an extra large but decided a large might fit better. Even in the large, it is roomy enough for layering underneath. The jacket is stylish and will be perfect for my upcoming trip to Spain and Portugal (it even comes with its own pouch for packing/storing). I bought the black with animal print when it was on sale. Even at full price, it is a good buy."

"I would normally order a petite medium but I ordered a petite small since the reviews said the coat ran large. I like the body fit but the arms are too short but I am keeping it because it is cute and good for wearing layers underneath. "

"I bought this jacket to wear on a cruise to Alaska. I need a light raincoat, as SE Alaska can be quite rainy at this time and I can layer in case of cold weather. It fit the bill perfectly. Fit to size. Couldn't be happier."

"I bought the beige/gray combination. It seems well made and reverses nicely but the fabric is more shiny than I expected. It runs large. I bought medium and is is somewhat tentlike. "
January 18, 2019
"Very nice! Used today for the first time on a cold rainy day. Kept me warm and dry. The very large hood is nice. The coat is reversible with great attention to detail. Buttons are sewn with cloth rather than thread so can’t fall off. Nice deep pockets. "

January 18, 2019
"Nice material and nice weight - only complaint is that the hood isn’t really functional to wear if it rained ... looks nice when it’s down on the shoulders but when it’s up, it settles on the back of the head, your forehead and face would get wet."
January 14, 2019
"The coat is stylish and comfortable. I love the two-tone color and the fact that it's reversible. It seems to be true to size also. "

It’s a little long-a little below my knees. This coat is light weight and perfect for south Texas. Shiny black or shiny silver. Hood and pockets are set different. Beautiful. "

"Love this raincoat --it's beautiful, functional and chic. But it arrived a wrinkled mess. I have had it on a hanger for a month and it is still so wrinkled I can't wear it. I called TravelSmith to ask if I could iron it and they had no idea on how to get the wrinkles out. Does anyone know how to get the wrinkles out of this raincoat? I don't want to return it."

"This is the second coat like this that I have purchased (the other was the red and black one). It is a perfect coat for weather in Alabama! It’s not lined, but in a cold snap we’ve had this week, it was plenty warm enough with a sweater underneath for temps in the 40s. I love the versatility of the reversible colors and the hood. The lighter side of this one is more of a soft gold than the sand color it appears in the picture, and the combination of the deep brown and the gold is beautiful."

"I bought the red and black coat, and I love it! I've been wanting one ever since I saw my best friend's. This has a classic look that can go anywhere. After reading several of the reviews on sizing, I ordered the small instead of my usual medium (I wear a size 12 in clothing), and it fits well. "

April 04, 2018
"I loved the way it looked online. I read the reviews that said it ran large. I ordered the green/gold combo and the colors are beautiful. I did not like the way it looked on me. I ordered my usual size and think I needed that size across the back and through the shoulders for driving. However, it was very wide at the bottom and I did not like the way the accordion hood looked on my shoulders. I really wanted to like it, but knew I would not feel comfortable wearing it, so I returned it."

"The jacket does run large, but small was still the correct size. I usually wear 4 or 6. I was disappointed in the lack of contrast between black and silver. The silver is more graphite. Also, I couldn't get the hood to cover my head so I would still need an umbrella in rain. It went back."

"Only gave a 4 star instead of 5 star because it runs super large! I have returned it and ordered smaller size. The fabric, style and quality seem to be amazing!"
March 11, 2018
"I’m glad I read the reviews about how large this coat runs. I ordered a size smaller and it’s still a little large. The color is not at all as represented, but it was on sale and was more tan than olive so I’m happy. Definitely wouldn’t pay full price. "
March 08, 2018
"Very nice rain jacket, but I thought it would pack down smaller. If you are recommending these for travel, it would be nice to include a compression bag to make it smaller. I returned it for this reason! "

"I love this coat. It is exactly what I was hoping for. Plenty of room for a sweater, so packable. The hood lays flat, sublime ease of movement. It would have a 5 star but for the color. The black & silver is not even close to the picture. The picture is a wonderful contrast between black & silver but the reality is the “black” is deep charcoal & the “silver” is battleship grey. Minimal contrast. If the structure of the coat wasn’t so spot on for me It would go back. BIG DISAPPOINTMENT,"

"I love this reversible coat! Both sides are very nice! I got the red/black one. It feels very roomy, but I still love it! Highly recommended!"

"Too roomy! Not loving this style. The silver-gray fabric is beautiful, but it just feels like I'm wearing a tent. It just needs a drawstring in the waist like my other Travelsmith jacket!"

"Perfect for travel. I usually pack multiple cover ups because I don’t like to wear the same coat everyday. I bought the black/silver coat in my normal size in case I wear it over a sweater. It fits perfectly and looks very pretty. I can wear this during the day or as a coverup in the evening. It folded up and fit snug inside it’s own cloth bag - ready for my suitcase."

"I purchased this raincoat as a "grown up" alternative to my anorak for traveling in civilized areas (i.e., I've signed up with Road Scholar to spend Christmas in San Diego). The reverse side -- silver (I bought the black) -- qualifies as dressy. It's a great layering piece. I wore it today and found it runs true to size. "

"This raincoat runs large - but I still love it. I got the "Small Petite," and I typically wear a women's size 7-8 and am 5'4.. But I still swam in it a bit. I took it to Italy recently, and I love how pack-able and versatile it is. Although running large, it was still a great investment. I know I'll use it again and again."

"I absolutely love this coat! I bought it for our trip to Italy, and it was a perfect coverup for cool days and evenings. We had one day with intermittent rain, and the hood worked well. People commented about it running large. I bought a small in the teal/ brown colors. I think it resembles a swing style! I wouldn’t want it smaller, in case I’d wear it over a heavy sweater. It’s very elegant looking, and the best part for traveling is it really does fold down into its case! "

"I love this coat, it's like having two coats in one. It is stylish, lightweight and fits beautifully. I would normally buy a 2X so that I could wear a heavy sweater or blazer underneath, but with the reviews of it running larger, I bought the 1X and it was perfect. "

"This jacket is lightweight, comfortable, packable. Just what I wanted for my trip. It's a deeper red than I expected but I bought it for the black side anyway so I'm okay with that. I got it on sale so I was happy with that too. Good value for the money."

"A great product!"

"The raincoat is as advertised but it runs very big! One reason I am reluctant to shop at Travel Smith is the cost of returns and the inconsistency of sizing. I will keep the coat--but not happily. It appears to be good quality. I have not tried it in the rain."

"got the Large -silver to go with winter weight sweater-coat - this works beautifully. I'm 5'7" ~ 170 lbs, ( size 12 to 14 or usually XL) this fits perfectly over my bulky sweater coat., nothing is tight or too loose. Have not tried it in pouring rain, but it 'sheets' water perfectly under the faucet water test I gave it. Glamorous!"

"i have this coat in silver/tan. Used it for a month in China this past year and will take it with me into Bolivia's rain forest and pampas areas this fall. Packs tightly into its own bag ... ready for use. This coat brings compliments wherever I wear it -- the accordian fold hood makes a great collar or hood. The sheen makes it a classy raincoat for any day or any circumstance. Can be dressed up or down. The reversible feature with the two contrasting colors is quite a statement."

"This coat runs very big. I wear an XL but generally go for 1X in outerwear. When I ordered the largest available size in my preferred color was LP. It fits perfectly! Room for a sweater as needed. The Wine/chestnut color is very nice. I have not yet used the coat so I cannot comment on the rain resistance. "

"The small fits like a large - The small fits like a large. I'm 5'6", 150, and it was tent-like on me. Had to return. Does not fit as seen in the picture. They had to have clipped it in the back so it would look like it fit her. Boo! Hiss! No truth in advertising. The idea and qualityI would not recommend this product."
