A quick trip down the bedding aisle at any department store will bombard you with a myriad of choices — high or low thread count, percale or sateen cotton, linen or jersey — but you’re only after one thing: comfort. And you shouldn’t need a textile encyclopedia to find it. Enter Rich and Vicki Fulop, the team behind Brooklinen, a direct-to-consumer bedding brand promising comfort at a spot-on price. They’ve sorted through all the confusing terms for you, boiling down different thread counts, cottons and weaves into two simple categories that deliver ultimate comfort: Classic and Luxe.
The Classic line is a lightweight, percale weave: cool, crisp and breathable, while the Luxe line is a bit more — well, luxe: a supple sateen that’s even softer and smoother than the Classic. Both collections come in a few key masculine colorways (Windowpane and Smoke are particular favorites), so choosing a set is easy, and each is a surefire style upgrade for your home. Spend a few nights sleeping on Brooklinen’s flagship bundle, the Luxe Hardcore Sheet Set, and you’ll believe your sheets fell from heaven.
Why do these sheets feel so good? Brooklinen uses only long-staple cotton (which makes for a substantially softer and more durable sheet) in a single-ply, 480-thread count. The unique cotton and single-ply weaving technique allows Brooklinen to create very fine and strong threads (picture the threads one uses for a fine suit), which result in superior sheets. The Luxe Hardcore Bundle is the full Brooklinen experience (sheet set, duvet cover, extra pillowcases) but at a 25 percent savings compared to buying each item separately. And if savings don’t make you sleep better, what will?
