Just as good might be some cotton corduroy with only one or two percent lycra in it. Might be more easy to find too, as I think more of that around now, than that other stuff. I believe that would be kind of more Nylon and Elastane for that not Polyester, and only a tiny percent but might even be better. It would have same easy care, a tiny bit of stretch, even less likely to wrinkle out of the clothes dryer (especially if you just sort of pull on it, and shake it out, when you take it out of there) and if a dark or deep color like red, black or blue, I think even less likely to fade sometimes. Also just as nice to sew on or nicer.

So if you can't find the maybe 60 percent cotton/40 percent polyester kind anyplace any more, and don't want all cotton, check out all the more 98% cotton/2 % or so Lycra ones, just since I think way more of that, is made now instead. Also might be a lot more easy to even find.
