Judges?

DING!

Judges will allow it.

We would have also accepted "self-defecation".

Is there any difference between poplin and broadcloth?

According to Proper Cloth, they're virtually indistinguishable. I think I've heard that poplin can be lighter weight, but it feels like marketing is confusing the matter. In the good ole' days there was probably a bigger difference?

I dug a little deeper (read: I overcame laziness and spent 30 seconds googling the subject) and came up with this very good "shirt fabrics for idiots" page: 

 

http://dappered.com/2014/07/a-primer-on-shirt-fabrics-poplin-vs-pinpoint-vs-twill-more/

 

Wikipedia describes broadcloth as being washed after weaving to shrink it down. That might be the "technical difference" between it and poplin, I suspect.

 

I'm going to go ahead and order a broadcloth shirt with Milano II collar from Proper Cloth, featuring my karefully-kalculated kustom Kocksackie measurements. Let's see how it pans out.

 

Yet another #menswear adventure for this little black duck!
