When choosing a garment there are particular terms that you
want to pay attention to. Some are very concerned with where they are made
while others are more concerned with textures.
Ring- Spun cotton as many of us know is regular cotton is made from soft
vegetable fiber, obtained from the seedpod of the cotton plant that is made
into strands of fiber. It is a softer option to cotton but still essentially
cotton. We can find ring-spun cotton in
generic brands such as Gildan, Fruit of the Loom, Jerzees, and Anvil for some
examples. Next Level also has some nice Ring-Spun Cotton shirt options
available at a very reasonable price.
Now many of you might ask, what does NO C.O.E stand for?
Well it has essentially the same feel as to ring-spun however; the process is
much more complicated and is considered the highest cotton option
available. Highest quality comes with a
cost. The concept of NO C.O.E as quoted
from Bella as “Not all Tees are created equal”. No C.O.E does not come in the
generic T-shirt options similar to thus of ring-spun. Only Bella and Canvas
have this option which allows them to be able to sell the shirts at a higher
So bottom line. What really is the difference? In our
opinion, based on the texture of both garments there really is no difference.
Ring-Spun cotton has just as much softness as the NO C.O.E. and comes at a
lower price. So when choosing a garment that soft and affordable go with
ring-spun. You will be just as pleased with the quality as well as pleased that
you are not burning a hole in your pocket.
