That’s why we’ve curated this list of terms to guide you in your journey to the perfect shirt for work and play. Read on and save your future self from spending hours in front of your closet.

Twill, which refers to the structure of the fabric, has distinctive diagonal weave or texture. A twill is made by weaving each warp and weft threads over and under two vertical threads to create a distinctive diagonal pattern. It’s softer and thicker than poplin and is resistant to creases. Shirts in twill drape well and are easy to iron. However, that makes them less crispy and cool than poplin shirts.

Oxford, which is woven in a basket weave, is known for its durability. Shirts in this construction are warmer than poplin because they are denser. The heavier and textured shirt is the most versatile shirt. It can be styled in different ways and is suitable for multiple occasions

Our oxford stretch shirt is like our regular oxford shirt, but with some elastane.

Oxford light has finer yarn and is lighter than an oxford fabric. It’s warmer and heavier than a poplin fabric and becomes softer with every wash.

THE WORK-TO-PARTY SHIRT

Poplin is a smooth fabric that’s finer and lighter than an oxford fabric. The resulting fabric has a smoother texture and offers increased softness and a better drape. Poplin is easy to wash, dry and iron, and it doesn’t wrinkle. This shirt’s crisp and cool properties make it ideal for the sweaty person. Constructed in a plain weave, a poplin shirt gives a smart, polished look which is why it’s mostly used in formal affairs, at work and during special occasions. If you’re a master in layering poplin is the shirt for you.

Linen is a fabric made from the fibers of the flax plant. It’s crispy, cool and comfortable while being a durable and sustainable choice. The structure of the fabric allows the more airflow which means the shirt won’t cling to a hot and sweaty body. That’s why linen shirts are perfect for hot summer days and beachside vacations.

Viscose-Lyocell blend is constructed in man-made fibers composed of plants which makes them water absorbent and breathable. These non-synthetic materials drape beautifully, and the sheen gives printed garments an exclusive feel. The best part about this blend is that it’s easy to care for and it doesn’t wrinkle much. The construction of our viscose-lyocell blend is a twill weave. Our Pablo Cuba shirt, which is in this blend, pairs well with a piña colada in hand.

Denim is a fabric normally associated with the jeans we wear. Unlike the denim used for our pants, our denim shirts are created using thinner yarn and in a twill weave construction. This makes it a durable, yet soft shirt. It’s also the reason for its durable and crease-resistant properties. Despite the thin yarns, the denim shirts have the same characteristic as the denim in your jeans — it ages beautifully. Usually worn during cooler months, the denim shirt is the casual shirt that never goes out of style.

Flannel, made out of cotton, or wool, feels fuzzy and soft due to its brushed surface. Our flannel shirts are made of cotton and is constructed in a brushed twill weave. This structure gives the fabric thicker and more insulating properties that provide warmth. It’s also durable and wicks moisture while drying quickly. The casual flannel shirt can either be worn as is or layered when the temperature drops.

Chambray is like poplin in the way it’s made, but heavier. The difference is that it has a melange effect due to the white weft and colored warp yarn used in the weaving process. Because a chambray shirt has a simple weave it’s able to be woven finer than denim. A shirt in chambray is perfect for a Sunday stroll in the park.

Other terms to consider
