As a serious sewer, there are things you need to know about the fabrics you use, so that you can achieve the look you want. One of these things is knowing the weave of your fabric. Think all you need to know is how the fabric looks in your hand when you buy it? Not even close. Fabric weave (let alone content) determines future fit and even how it sews up. You have already proven this to yourself every time you buy jeans. You try them on in the store, and they fit great, but you stop to ask the sales help how much they will losen up. See? You already know that twill will "grow". Take a look at your jeans. See how the the weave looks diagonal? With all of todays washes, you can probably see it better on the inside. So, we are in agreement that weave affects future wear...
