Dege made up the voile. The voile has a dressier finish.
Does voile work well in the summer?
Classic voile is super see-through and sheer. So yes, it could be perfect for summer if you want everyone to see down to your skin. In a voile dinner shirt, the front has an extra layer or layers of fabric, as do the cuffs...and you typically don't take your jacket off. The same principle is used for dress shirts: doubling up the front. But, all bets are off without a jacket.
The SG "voile" is nearly opaque. So, it's not like the usual voile, but it still is ever so slightly sheer.
I find most shirt fabrics serviceable year round...what I vary are suits, jackets and pants. I realize, however, need all the help that they can get.
There's little consistency in individual microclimate. One man might feel most comfortable in a diaphanous ensemble in the heat of summer: light shirting, unlined fresco jackets, and a fan on at all times. Another, however might need an oxford cloth shirt layered up with a lined jacket to sop things up away from the skin.
Frankly, it is about the last thing for which the opinions of others are useful. You have to try things for yourself.
Again, this reasonableness will never do. If you aren't prepared to stake out an absolute position and deride the opinions of others, you risk banning.
Yeah, I have no issues with plain cotton broadcloth in the summer.
Does anybody know the difference between chambray and pinpoint? They appear similar in the manner that the weft and warp are different colors, but chambray seems more denim-like. Is it just a different weave, or different kind of thread?
it is a different
pinpoint has a white warp (length) and colored Weft (width) it is 2 over 2 under
chambray is colored warp white weft 1 over 1 under
but the thick yarn makes for the larger weave.
