Q.) If there is a cloth in which the silk is less than 50% then is it permissible for men to use clothing made from it?

A.) If the weft of the fabric consists of less than 50% of pure silk, then to adorn such a garment will be permissible but if the weft consists of 50% or more of pure silk, then it will not be permissible to wear such garments.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
