Viscose isn’t really a fabric but a solution of cellulose but it can be made to feel like cotton, silk, wool, linen or really whatever you want. When you look at suits that are very nice and soft and pretty (and expensive!), they tend to have higher levels of viscose. I saw a Hugo BOSS suit that had almost 40% viscose and cost $600, so I think that gets the point across. Something that’s also quite cool is that viscose makes things that usually look and feel very cheap look and feel very very nice. Polyester by itself, for example, tends to be nonsense. Polyester viscose blend, however, is actually pretty decent fabric. It feels softer and has a more serious appearance than polyester on its own. So viscose is basically the magic in the suiting process I’d say.
