That article addresses most styles of clothing. It is about quality, not fashion. And assessing the quality of cotton fibers and stitches can be done on both T-Shirts and fancy dresses.

What may be lacking is a section on printed garments.

Sportswear is another matter. These are technical clothes, designed for performance, with characteristics that depends on the particular sport. You won't use the same clothes for mountaineering and for weightlifting at the gym.

For day to day wearing, my preferences goes to light hiking clothes. They tend to be:

- Comfortable

- Reasonably durable

- Quick drying

- Breathable and/or waterproof

- Not too flashy, acceptable in most settings

- With pockets, often with zippers

- Low maintenance, somewhat stain and dirt resistant
