Cottons are the most commonly used material in all types of apparel, but in the past, the cotton that they were made from was a much less desirable and versatile product than the fibers used to make the jersey, according to researchers from the University of Pennsylvania and the University at Buffalo.
This study was led by the Penn team, led by Professor Christopher J. R. Schaeffer, who was previously the senior director for apparel and sport marketing at Adidas.
“There are a lot of reasons why cotton has declined in the last 20 years,” said Schaeffer, who is also the professor of organizational behavior and management.
“We don’t need to go into a whole laundry list of reasons.
It’s all about the product and the process, and the way it’s made.”
According to the research, the quality and longevity of cotton has improved in the U.S. and abroad in recent years, and in 2017, there were more than 200 cotton jogging jerseys available online.
These new jogging apparel products are typically made from 100 percent cotton.
However, these jogging clothes are made using less than half the number of synthetic fibers that are used in the manufacture of traditional jerseys, according the study.
“We were surprised that cotton is actually a much better alternative than synthetic fibers in terms of quality and durability,” said R.J. Cottont, who conducted the study with professor Michael R. Miller.
“The more I thought about it, the more I realized cotton was not the only choice.”
While the study did not directly address the question of whether or not cotton jogs are better for you, the findings show that the textile used in cotton joggers does not have to be made of high-quality cotton.
It could be a cotton product made with a less desirable, less durable material, or the cotton could be made with synthetic fibers.
The study also showed that if you were able to purchase a cotton jersey from an online retailer, it might be more expensive than buying one from a store.
“What you end up with is basically a kind of reverse-cycle,” said Cottone.
“You’re buying a new jersey and then you’re buying the same thing that you used to buy when you purchased the same jersey.
That’s why there’s this tradeoff.”
Cottone also pointed out that, although the textile is more durable than cotton, the cost of cotton jerseys can vary greatly.
“It’s almost as if the costs are different for different manufacturers,” he said.
“For example, there are many high-end jogging jogging shirts that cost $30,000, whereas for the same size jersey you might buy for $5,000.
The costs are almost as great.”
According the study, it’s important to be aware of the difference between the costs of cotton and synthetic fibers when shopping for your next cotton jogged shirt.
If you’re looking to purchase an online or brick-and-mortar retailer, the study suggests you ask them about the quality of the materials used and the durability of the material.
“If you’re going to buy a new shirt and it’s cotton, you want it to be from a company that’s going to do a great job of making that product,” said Miller.
