- n. A waterproof and windproof cotton fabric.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Called the "Criterion" jacket and priced at $1,400, it is made of the water-shedding Ventile cotton used by the British military and is lined in English tweed.
A hearty all-weather cotton, Ventile pushes the theme, and keys on the history capture in the design.
With his group seemingly picking up instruments and following the xeroxed advice of Sideburn fanzine's "This is a chord, this is another, this is a third, now form a band" (as opposed to the current climate's, this is a chambray shirt, this is Ventile, this is a copy of 'Free & Easy' - now start a brand) mantra, they made a certain DIY impact, despite sounding like shit.
