Basic black gabardine is an indispensable fabric when it comes to apparel for both men and women. It is durable and strong yet soft to the touch. Use it to sew men's and women's suits, jackets, overcoats, and slacks. As we all know, black goes with everything. Pair it with white for a sharp, crisp look or add red accents to create the all important “power suit”. Women can add pink and yellow accents to soften the look, and both men and women will look sharp in a blue and black combination!
