I'm no stranger to slipcovers- we have them on our sofa, chairs, as well as in our rental property. I purchased this one in navy stripe for the rental property sleeper sofa (while not pulled out) to prevent constant upholstery cleaning. I'm always worried that they will be to light weight or a material since you need at least a 10oz denim fabric to make a decent quality slipcover. I ALWAYS look for brushed twill, canvas, or duck (if the duck is listed as a very heavy weight). I was surprised by the negative reviews on the fabric quality and I'm not sure if it varies depending on which one you get; but the navy and white stripe is extremely thick brushed twill that will hold up for many many years to come. It's generously oversized and since I was putting it on a love seat with different shaped arms it took some serious work to tuck all the fabric in place. I purchased this as an "as is" item returned with hair on it for under $*and I couldn't be happier!
I think this is a very beautiful chair cover and for 'show', it is perfect. For everyday use, not real practical. Even though the chair ties in the back, one is constantly pulling the fabric forward just by sitting and getting up (even with kids). So tons of fabric ends up lying on the floor and one is always repositioning the slipcover on the chair. With kids, the fabric just gets dirty quicker by being on the floor so much. Also, in the pictures the fabric looked to be a sort of cotton duck type of material, but it is not. It is soft and almost fuzzy. Not terrible, just not as durable as I wanted. If I saw these in person before purchasing, I would have likely opted for plain cotton duck ones just for the durability. But all that being said, they are quite beautiful and if you don't use them for everyday meals, it is a great slipcover.
