Damn. Last time I paid any attention the max was 240. Really flimsy stuff.

I have a 3x3 160s which is incredible but it cost a fortune. Never again. It's also hot.

Honestly that's my experience with poplin as well. But the 300/2 twill from DJA is just out of this world soft & silky yet has a feel of strength to it that is remarkable. I have fallen in love with that stuff

Here is the link , but they only mention the poplin Cullinan. I assume the twill is newer

the 160/3 you mention, is that Salvatore triplo from Alumo? What weave?

Yes, I believe that's what it is. Plain weave.

I stopped wearing poplin in the office for this very reason. Ironing it is a bitch and by the time you commute to the office, its wrinkeled. I save it for the hot california summers

The 300s I saw was either Alumo or G&R. It had a remarkably firm hand. It seemed to only come in maybe 3 or 4 colors in plain weave, and my shirtmaker quoted me a little over $500 for a shirt in that fabric, which doesn't seem too outrageous.

I also barely wear my 160/3. The cotton linens and voiles get the most wear.

Sometimes you need lightweight. Some wrinkle more than others - I had a RLPL that looked bad before I got it on.
The twills I have are hotter than the poplins and don't look as crisp, generally.

Seriously, if you need lightweight for heat, linen cotton is so superior to anything else.
