Shirt fabric texture preferences

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
What texture do you prefer for the fabric of your shirts? Pique? Twill? Herringbone (really just a variation on twill)?

none as in zendaline, broadcloth, poplin voile, etc - although a fine, fine twill is also a treat

the only one i don't like is end-on-end. the streaks look cheap to me. twills are my favorites.

First Google page for Zendaline Luxuriously Elegant our Zendaline Described as 180's two ply cotton made from the finest Egyptian cotton. To quote "will feel as soft as butter to your hands" MMmmmm shirt that's like butter Personally I like smooth non textured shirt fabric since I never wear an undershirt. I'm sure I would like Zendaline now I just need to go rob that bank.

Pinpoint oxford is my favorite, it has a bit of body but isn't too heavy. I had an RLPL pinpoint oxford in pink that I unfortunately outgrew, and it was my favorite shirt ever. I have mostly broadcloth shirts, though.

Zendaline is a combination fabric made of broadcloth yarns in the warp and high-twist voile yarns in the weft. The finest I know of is the 2x2 160's we use. If there is a 180's I'm s bit surprised that I haven't heard of it ... or of its maker ... or of its wholesaler.

I like virtually all fabrics. I really like broadcloths, though fine twills in a nice quality cotton (usually 120s Italian cotton) are unbeatable as far as work shirts go, in my opinion -- they just don't wrinkle and seem to have a softer hand.
