    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.

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

    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.
