Conan And Aziz Ansari Talk About Thread Count

Aziz Ansari wants everyone to know that the sheets he bought at Bed, Bath & Beyond were not of the quality he’d been promised.

In reality, thread count for sheets is about as reliable an indicator of quality as megapixels for cameras. Once you go above a thread count of about 300, says, all sorts of issues can come into play that will affect the feel of the sheet: “We’ve seen excellent examples of every type of construction (thanks to quality fiber, yarn size and finishing).”

They also note that if you see a 600 count sheet at a low, low price, be suspicious: “Keep in mind that with higher thread counts, price and quality do tend to go hand in hand.”
