The collar and cuffs of a shirt are an integral part of a man’s ensemble. They are the only two parts of a shirt that immediately visible under a jacket. A proper fitting cuff will ensure that the sleeve ends to the right point on the hand.  For the right fit, your cuff size should be about 1.75” larger than the tight measurement of your wrist. Under a jacket, there should only be a half inch of cuff show. Here are Cuff styles we feature in our collection.

Poplin is a one by one weave that gives the fabric a thin, smooth and flat feel. It is very similar to broadcloth. The weight of this fabric can vary from light to medium weight, which makes it very comfortable to wear. It’s a very durable fabric that is definitely less prone to wrinkling, staining and easy to iron. Poplins can vary in the construction, which means it would have an unequal count yard in the warp and the weft.

Broad Cloth

Broadcloth, similar to Poplin, is a tightly woven fabric with a plain weave. The weave of this fabric gives it a soft sheen, which gives shirts made of this fabric a look of luxe. Broadcloth is quite a lightweight fabric, great for warmer weathers. Broadcloths have a symmetrical construction, which means it would have an equal count yard in the warp and the weft.


End-on-End or Fil-A-Fil is a broadcloth with a very distinct contrast warp and weft colour. Woven with a coloured thread on the warp and white on the weft, it looks like a solid plain from a distance, but up close has a more textured appearance. Usually it is a lighter weight fabric.

Oxford Fabrics

There are three types of Oxford fabrics – plain Oxford, Pinpoint Oxford and the more formal Royal Oxford. Oxford cloth has a thicker thread and a looser weave. It has a slightly rougher texture than other shirting fabrics but is more durable. It has a basket weave construction. Shirts in this fabric are popularly used in casual wear. Pinpoint or Pinpoint Oxford is identical to Oxford cloth in its weave but uses a finer yarn and a tighter weave. This fabric is quite durable and a good choice for professional wear.


Dobby fabrics are made of weaves that are raised slightly instead of a smooth finish, giving the fabrics more texture and various patterns such as stripes, checks and other geometric patterns. Dobby shirts are quite similar to, but less intricate than, Jacquard shirts. Polo shirts are usually made of Dobby fabric.


Twill fabrics are known for their diagonal weave. This fabric technically has a front and back side, which is unlike plain weave whose two sides are the same. This weave allows for various patterns like Herringbone, Houndstooth, Sharkskin, Twill Flannel and other. Twills tend to feel softer than Poplins and are more resistant to wrinkles. Even stains are less noticeable on the uneven and textured surfaces of Twills. Twills are very durable making them perfect for sturdy work clothing – Denim, for example, is a Twill.

Bamboo Fabric

Bamboo fabric is a natural textile made from the pulp of bamboo grass. It is considered sustainable, because the bamboo plant grows quickly and does not require the use of herbicides and pesticides to thrive. Bamboo fabric retains many of the same qualities it has as a plant. Bamboo fabric has excellent wicking abilities, which means that the fabric draws or absorbs moisture away from the skin. It also has antibacterial qualities – reducing bacteria that often thrive on clothing and cause unpleasant odors.

Thread counts

Thread count is referred to by a number such as 50’s, 70’s, 80’s, 100’s, 120’s, 140’s, 160’s up to 200’s. These numbers refer to the yarn size – the smaller the number, the thicker the yarn and the higher the number, the finer the yarn.Thread count is one of the indicators of quality, however the mill, ply and the type of cotton all contribute to the quality and luxury of a fabric.

Warp and Weft

The terms warp and weft refers to the threads that make up a fabric. Warp threads are the threads that run vertically along the length of the yardage. Weft threads are the threads that run horizontally from side to side of the yardage.

Two-Ply & Single Ply

Ply refers to how many yarns are twisted together to make a single thread. Two -ply yarns are considered superior to single ply fabrics. Shirting fabrics are most often two-ply and single ply.
