Hi all.

I've finally gotten my measurements down on mytailor where I feel comfortable spending a little more on a nicer fabric knowing the shirt will come out fitting well.

I'm looking to spend in the $150 range for a fabric.
I'm looking for a smooth light fabric like a poplin that's not extremely prone to wrinkling.
I was considering the thomas mason 140's poplin.
Any opinions on this fabric choice?
Are there any favorites around here I should be looking out for?

Thanks for your input.

Kevin

I recommend the Thomas Mason Portland 120 ($149), Thomas Mason Buckingham 140 ($199), and David & John Anderson Emerald 170 ($239). The TM Hampton twills are supposed to be nice, but I'm generally not a fan of the twill weave.

The Portland 120 collection is heavy on the basics (solids, conservative stripes), so it would be a great place to start. Personally I wouldn't go below 120s because you start to compromise on softness/luxury without much added benefit in terms of durability.
