Finding the perfect shirt for a professional and consistent look for any occasion is not easy. To choose the right shirt, not only do we guide ourselves based our tastes, but we must consider a number of issues that will influence our decision: “Is this shirt right for the occasion?” “How am I going to be perceived by others?” “What is my priority: appearance or comfort?”
Therefore, it is important to understand the different materials and fabrics that are used in producing shirts buttons. Below we explain the most common fabrics on the market:
• Twill: is characterized by its diagonal stitching. Known as a thick but soft material, it is the best option to choose if you want to feel comfortable and cool during the day. It is considered one of the more casual styles for an everyday use.
• Oxford: has a vertical stitching and they normally are 100% cotton fabric. They are used in more formal occasions and styles tend to be heavier; however, the addition of a pocket is common to give them a more informal spin.
• Within the family of Oxford, we can find the Royal Oxford (also known as French Oxford). It is the heaviest and more formal fabric on the market, made of 100% woven cotton. There is also the Pinpoint Oxford, the lightest style among this group because its made with a finer thread. Some consider it a mix between Oxford and Poplin fabric.
• Poplin: usually cotton or cotton-polyester blend. Not as heavy and thick as the Oxford but at the same time looks professional and formal. Today, many companies add a bit of spandex to the fabric, this makes them more elastic and comfortable.
