Textile is the ancient branch of engineering. Now textile engineering study is becoming more demand-able then before. Because textiles have not only used for wearing but also hugely used in different sectors like as technical textile. Many research works are being done on textile. But doing research anything it needs huge information. Books have not alternative of information. But price of every book is out of range such like us third world country’s people. For fulfillment the demand of information I will give a list of textile books. All books I have collected from my friends and fans who are studying in different famous universities around the world. I think these books will be helpful for students, researchers, businessmen, entrepreneurs as well as all people who are interested to know about textile.

Quality Factors in Fabric Spreading

Fabric Spreading:
Fabric spreading means the smooth laying out of the fabric in superimposed layers (plies) of specified length. It is preparatory process of cutting fabric. Fabric spreading is done after marker making. Fabric spreading is so much important part of a garments industry to cut the fabric and sewing properly and proper shape. Maintaining quality in fabric spreading is an important factor. In previous article, I have discussed about types of fabric lay in spreading.
Fabric spreading
Quality factors in spreading:
  • A vertical straight edge must be maintained.
  • The two ends of the finished spread must be kept vertical and maintained finished spread length; this is done by marking the table at each end of the spread (4 marks) and by cutting off each ply exactly to these marks. The length of the spread will be length of the marker, plus a small allowance called LAY END allowance, usually 1 inch (depending on the fabric).
  • All spreads should be made without either tension or slack. A tight spread is one in which plies have been stretched during the spreading process, whilst unrolling or transporting the plies from the opposite end the cloth has been subjected to tension and the plies are actually laid on the spread in a stretched condition. Such a spread will contract, either before the final ply is made, or whilst waiting to be cut, after spreading is completed. This will result in contraction of the cut components. As the contraction is likely to continue even after cutting a tight spread can be detected during spreading by inspecting the ends where it will be noticed at the spread is becoming shorter than the table marks. The ply ends will tend to shrink towards the centre of the spread.
Common problems in spreading:
  • A slack spread: Possesses excess length within the ends of the spread, it appears as billows and ridges on the surface of the spread. Cut components for a slack spread will be observed. Excess length can be measured by gently stroking the billows towards one end and on both ends of the spread. It will be found that some of the ply will have to be cut off in order to keep the ends vertical. Thus a slack spread is also a wasteful spread. 
  • Tight selvedge: A tight selvedge will billow in the centre of the spread, i.e. in the centre of the cloth width the tight end will be flat. To remedy the tight selvedge must be notched at frequent intervals, or if necessary cut off completely. 
  • Bowing: Bowing is the angular distortion of the weft yarns which creates stress in the fabric and variations in slackness and tightness in the spread. Such variations produce cut components which are both undersized and oversized. Tight selvedges and bowing often go together. Pieces with these defects should be rejected at inspection.

Fabric lay
Spreading means the smooth laying out of the fabric in superimposed layers of specified length and after spreading the shape of fabric plies is called fabric lay. During spreading the number of plies should not be more than three hundred.

Types of fabric lay:

1. According to construction:
  • Straight lay: In straight lay each ply of fabric is spread according to marker length, i.e. all plies can have the same length. In that case one marker is used. 
Straight lay
Straight lay
  • Stepped lay: Ply of fabric lay is not spread according to marker length, i.e. when the plies are laid up in different lengths- a step can be formed. Different types of marker are essential for different steps. Its use is very much less because of fabric wastages and lay making if difficult as well. 
Stepped lay
Stepped lay
 
Difference between straight and stepped lay is as follows:
Straight lay
Stepped lay
Each ply is spread according to marker length.
Ply of fabric lay is not spread according to marker length.
Mostly used
Rarely used
Fabric wastage is less.
Fabric wastage is more
Fabric spreading is simple.
Fabric spreading is difficult.
One marker is used.
Different types of marker are used.
 
2. According to the direction of spreading
  • One way spreading (Face to underside): This method is used for open fabrics. The face can lie towards the top or bottom, but always in the same direction. If spreading machines are used, one way laying-up necessitates idle motion because the machine always begins its run at the same end of the table and must return to this position after every laying operation. 
One way spreading
One way spreading
  • Laying-up in pairs (Face to face): This method is also used for open piece goods. The face side is always laid onto the previously spread face side so that- as in one way spreading- the machine returns running idle to the working position. The roll of fabric must be turned before the next piece is laid-up. When using spreading machines, these consequently require a device to turn the roll after the fabric has been cut off at the end. 
Laying-up in pairs
Laying-up in pairs
  • Lap (Continuous, Zigzag) lying: This method was also developed mainly for spreading open piece goods. Contrary to one way spreading and laying-up in pairs, the pieces are not cut off at the lay end but are clamped and then continuously laid in laps. This is the easiest and most popular way of spreading.

Introduction:
Necktie is a necessary part of a men’s formal and executive attire. It is worn around the neck by passing under the collar of the shirt over the neck buttons. Necktie is also a fashion accessories.

The ties are available in a variety of fabrics-in all imaginable colors, prints, and weaves but the silk ties are the most preferred and suitable one. Ties are available in many a wide spectrum of colors that one can easily match them with the color of the shirt or select a contrasting color, intersecting weaves and prints are the lifeline of this accessory.
Necktie
Ideally, the tie must always be teamed with a men’s suit or jacket. However, a tie worn with a full sleeve shirt is acceptable attire during summer or winter. The pin is used as an accessory on ties to add to the wearer’s elegance. The pin and cufflinks when worn together should ever be matching. Ties could be worn in different styles, based on one’s body type and preference.

Styles of Tying a Tie:
Some of the major tie not styles are mentioned below.
  1. Windsor knot.
  2. Half Windsor knot.
  3. Four in hand knot.
  4. Bow tie.

  2. Look up the end through the gap between collar and knot. Again cross the wide end behind the narrow end.
  3. Similarly, repeat the above step on the other side.
  4. Now, wrap the wide end of the tie across the narrow end as shown.
  5. Pull the wide end up through the gap between collar and the knot again, with a loose hand to create a loop in front of the knot.
  6. Complete the knot by pulling down the wide end through the created loop. Tighten the knot, holding it gently and pulling the narrow end.
2. Half Windsor Knot
Is a medium sized, symmetrical knot that is narrower than the Windsor and larger than the four-hand. As it is a medium sized knot, it can be used on all types of fabrics. This is a knot tied with executive wear. This knot is used with both pointed collar and spread collar shirt. Follow the steps are mentioned below.
Half Windsor Knot
  1. Button down the button of the shirt with collar up and lay the around the neck, so that the wide end of the tie should be appeared. 12 inches below the narrow end. Cross the wide end over the narrow end.
  2. Look up the wide end of the thorough the gap between collar and knot.
  3. Put down the wide end back from the front of the narrow end. Again, take the wide end behind the narrow end from the right side.
  4. Wrap the wide end over the narrow end and pull up the wide end as done in step two, but with a loose hand to create a loop.
  5. Now, pull the wide end through the loop created in the above step.
  6. Adjust the knot by pulling the narrow end gently and flip down the collars.
3. Four-in-Hand Knot
Is a simple and narrow knot, which can be used with all types of fabrics. This knot should not be used for very thin and narrow ties. It is usually worn with standard point collar shirt. Follow the steps are mentioned below:
Four-in-Hand Knot
  1. In the Four-in-hand knot the tie around the neck keeping the wide end longer while narrow end shorter. Cross the wide end over the narrow end.
  2. Pull the wide end of the necktie towards left side from the back of the narrow end as shown.
  3. Repeat the step two while pulling the wide end towards the right side, pull it with a loose hand to create a loop.
  4. Now, pull up the end through the gap between collar and knot, while holding the narrow end with the other hand.
  5. Pull down the wide end through the created loop. Tighten the knot and center between the collars
4. Bow Tie
Is another style of tie or the neck wear, which is worn for formal evening time functions. This appears as a bow on the front of the neck. Follow the steps to the Bow tie.
Bow tie
  1. Lay the bow tie around the neck with left 2 inches lower than the right end. Cross the left over the right.
  2. Pull up the left end through the gap between the collar and the crossed ends of the bow tie.
  3. Fold the right end of the bow tie and place it across the collar points.
  4. Hold this front loop with thumb and forefinger of right hand. Drop the left end down over the front of the loop.
  5. Wrap the left end of the bow tie .Take the left end of the bow tie and pull it through this loop, and pull it from the gap between the collar and the knot, while creating a loop.
  6. Adjust the resulting knot to make the both ends equal and tighten the bow tie.
Conclusion:
Neck tie is the necessary and also enhance the elegant appearance to the wearer. Even in convent, schools, professional college students are insisted to wear the neck tie in prescribed color and design to show their discipline. Now –a- days I.T sector professionals, Five Star Hotels , corporate and banking sector officials are preferred to wear the neck tie to be recognized their professional position.
