Smooth linings are the most common choice when it comes to lining garments such as blazers, jackets, and coats. Being the most common choice doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the most monotonous option. The wide range of colors allows you to personalize the garment with the perfect color to match the outer fabric, whether you want to match the tones or go for a completely different lining color than the outer fabric.

Different weaves (taffeta, twill, herringbone, or satin) offer different visual characteristics. Taffeta provides a matte and neutral appearance. Twill, with a subtle diagonal pattern, and herringbone, with a more pronounced diagonal, offer a bit more shine compared to taffeta and a distinct personality thanks to their diagonals. Satin provides a very shiny appearance, appreciated in some garments like coats.
