I am planning on buying some custom shirts and have been thinking of getting a white dress shirt in a twill fabric. It seems to be a little different, but still appropriate for business. However, it is hard for me to tell from a small sample what the fabric is really like. I am wondering if anyone has one or has seen one. Is it too thick a fabric? Is it suitable only for the winter? Any responses would be appreciated.

Depends on how thick. A fine twill is fine for business, either alone, under an odd jacket, or with a suit. It also isn't noticeably hotter than a broadcloth IMO -- unless it's over 90 degrees or very humid (think NYC in the summer), you'll be just as comfortable.

I like having a good mix of twills and broadcloths -- I would get sick of either if that's all I had.

Agreed. Don't think of cotton twill as what your khakis are made of. Twill can be very comfortable for the heat, and it's soft. Depending on its thickness, I think it can breathe a little better than broadcloth.

And I forgot to add that twill has more body and seems more resistant to wrinkles, which is nice.
