Shirt Fabric

- Jan 26, 2019 -


Twill fabrics are easily recognizable because they will show diagonal weave or texture. The diagonal effect can range from very fine, to a mid Royal twill, up to a much larger Imperial twills. Twills will almost always have a bit of shine, though the degree can depend on the weave, color, and cotton used. Because of the diagonal texture, twill is a bit softer than broadcloth and will drape more easily. Twill shirts can give you the same look that freshly pressed broadcloths can, but are relatively easy to iron and resistant to wrinkles.


Broadcloth is often referred to as poplin and is a tightly woven fabric with a very simple over-under weave and very little sheen, which makes it nice and professional. Broadcloths are great for those looking for as little texture as possible in their fabrics. They are generally a thinner, lighter fabric. Broadcloths generally wear the smoothest out of all weaves thanks to their lack of texture, but can also be the most prone to wrinkling.

Pinpoint Oxford

Pinpoint has the same weave as oxford cloth, but it uses a finer yarn and tighter weave. It is more formal than oxford cloth, but less formal than broadcloth or twill. Think of them as great everyday work shirts, but not ideal for special events. Pinpoint oxfords are generally not transparent and are slightly heavier and thicker than broadcloths. Because of their heavier construction, pinpoints are fairly durable fabrics. Opt for a twill or broadcloth if you are looking for a formal shirt.
