What are your go-to stores for clothing with natural fibers?
I'm in the process of doing a "wardrobe exorcism" to reduce the clutter in my closet, and I'm noticing that oodles of my clothes are made primarily from polyester. I plan on selling or donating most of these pieces (after having drawn the connection that I sweat like a sailor within hours of putting them on) and replacing them with clothing made from natural fibers like wool, cotton, silk, etcetera.
As it goes, most of the stores I've been purchasing from in the past few years have jumped on the polyester bandwagon like crazy - Express and Dynamite are the biggest offenders. So I'm in need of some new places to shop - namely, stores that sell a decent amount of clothing with natural fibers!
I'm looking to build up my knowledge as much as possible, so any stores go, no matter the style. I'm also based in the United States, but I'm open to overseas / international stores.
If you're in Canada then definitely add Aritzia to your list. I mainly wear wool, cotton, linen, modal & higher quality rayon (and okay the last two are NOT natural fibers but they're some of the few synthetics I can tolerate). Aritzia has a nice selection of the above fabrics, though their price points for the quality can sometimes be called into question. I'm like you where I used to be a diehard Express shopper until I realized that I was stinky and sweating like a hog in the summer and then freezing my tail off in the winter. Once I realized how much polyester and acrylic they use, I jumped ship. That's not to mention that I just don't like the style of their clothes anymore.
For international (to you) stores: Madewell, Uniqlo (though the wool isn't super high quality but I love that it isn't as high maintenance as wool I get from Aritzia), Everlane, AllSaints (their stuff can be outrageously priced for the quality so I'd say to wait for sales, like the cyber monday one they're doing today).
