Ready-made Turnbull specs.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello gents, Just a quick couple of questions regarding the standard made-in-England Turnbull & Asser ready-mades, the sort sold through Neiman Marcus. 1.  Is the cotton used two-fold poplin?  I don't have the bolts in front of me to measure, sadly. 2.  100s cotton, or better?  Precise figure, anyone? 3.  Are the buttonholes sewn with cotton or silk?  I strongly presume cotton, for the $175 range. I'm sure this has been covered previously, but I haven't the time to read all the posts. Thanks much. Paul

Surely Mr. Kabbaz knows. Although my lack of shirt knowledge will invariably get put on terrible display in his answer.   But I don't care.  Hit me with it.

Based on my six years of patronage: 1. Cotton is two ply. 2. Cotton is 100 or lower on the "classic" and "exclusive poplin" lines. The "superfine" and "Sea Island quality" lines have higher numbers, but I don't have the specs. 3. Cotton is used for the buttonholes.
