Poplin is the simplest form of fabric which has a plain texture. A poplin shirt is an essential in your closet and can be paired with anything. A poplin feels strong, crisp andsilky. The higher the count the more comfortable and luxury the cotton poplin fabric. Shop Poplin Weave Shirts.
Twill as seen in the image has a parallel diagonal line like structure. Twill weaves are more closely woven, heavier and stronger than weaves of comparable fiber and yarn size. Their count is hence usually 30’s or 40’s only and used more for casual checks and plain shirts. Shop Twill Weave Shirts
Dobby fabrics are created in special looms that draw up certain warp threads to form a self-structured design. These small geometric patterns are spread evenly throughout the fabric. A white dobby shirt looks very rich and elegant and is a 15 buttons must have in your closet shirt. Shop Dobby Weave Shirts
The oxford is basically a structured basket weave. It is mainly used to make a casual or sporty shirt. The oxford is like a bridge between casual and formal according to us. One can never go wrong with a sky blue oxford shirt paired with a denim, trouser or chinos. Shop Oxford Weave Shirts
End-to-end popularly known as Fil-a-fil is a type of plain fabric in which two yarns of different colour (usually one dyed, one white) are closely woven together. This fabric is mostly used to make formal shirts. A grey fil-a-fil paired with a black formal trouser is our must have recommendation. Shop Fil-a-fil Weave Shirts
Jacquard weave refers to a weaving process that creates a bespoke patterns or image within a fabric. This weave is produced on a special loom called the Jacquard Loom. The weave results in a fabric which is strong and lustrous and has a luxurious look and feel. Shop Jacquard Weave Shirts
Herringbone is a broken twill weave which gives a zig-zag pattern. Like the twill weave, a herringbone weave has countless variations, which give different appearances to the fabric. We recommend a light read or peach herringbone shirt as it can be used as an office as well as party wear shirt.
Satin is actually a variation of twill weave, however looks completely different. Satin weave creates a super smooth fabric that has a soft hand and drapes well. This gives the fabric an especially shiny surface, which is often associated with exclusive fabrics. We recommend pastel shades of satin paired with white pants.
Linen fabrics are the most exclusive fabrics of the lot. Made from fibres of flax plant, linen is highly absorbent and a good conductor of heat. Hence linens are best to be worn in our Indian kind of weather. A linen shirt always looks rich despite the colour and count. Our picks are lime yellow, mint green and baby pink.
