What is? Gsm (commonly seen on t-shirt or polo descriptions)

Gsm means grams per square metre and is an international measurement of the weight of the fabric and is commonly used in the paper/ board industry and textile/apparel industry.

A common assumption is that the higher the gsm the better the quality of the garment. This is simply not true as additional factors such as, quality of stitching, weave (knit) of fabric and quality of cotton or polyester being used has an impact on the overall product.
