Trousers designed for the workplace are often subjected to heavy laundering on a regular basis.
Our extensive line of sewing threads delivers a lifetime wear that is able to endure heavy to normal wearing conditions.
Gramax Tex 18 is typically used for the overlock serging operation to reduce the thread cost while producing garments. Depending on the final quality requirement alternative threads types may be used.
For more information, check out our recommendations below.
Where two Tex sizes of thread have been suggested the choice will be determined by the fabric weight, the construction of the load bearing seams and the stitch definition required (topstitching).
The sewing thread recommendations laid out above are intended as a guide to aid the construction of garments with good quality seams. As garments of the same generic type differ in terms of fabric substrate and construction, and both making up methods and post make up processing can greatly vary, these recommendations should be viewed as a good starting point for thread selection.
Garment specific recommendations for thread and needle selection as well as accurate thread consumption figures and onsite technical support can be obtained by contacting your local Coats' office.
These recommendations and consumption figures are intended as a guide only and are given in good faith but without warranty or liability on the company or its employees.
