Brooks Brothers offers a wide range of fabric weaves to suit any occasion. Each weave, like each wearer, is unique and maintain specific characteristics. So which one is right for you?
Oxford: Oxford is a basket weave where multiple weft threads are crossed over an equal number of warp threads. Usually, one color of weft is crossed with a white warp thread resulting in a two-tone color appearance. Popular in casual shirts for its durability and versatility.
We suggest Oxford shirts for: family gatherings, casual Fridays at the office.
Royal Oxford: The royal oxford is designed from a slightly changed two-three-two structure. An elevated fabric from its Oxford counterpart, the royal oxford holds a distinct luster and texture making it a more dressy fabric.
We suggest Royal Oxford shirts for: business casual, and formal dress occasions.
Pinpoint: Pinpoint weaves maintain a single weft crossing two warp threads forming a pin point look. This fabric is a cross between poplin and oxford. Generally heavier and thicker than poplin due to its construction. Pinpoints are more formal than oxford cloth, but less formal than poplin.
We suggest a pinpoint shirt for: everyday business looks, and a dinner date.
Poplin: Poplin, also known as broadcloth, is a strong, very smooth and durable fabric that has an almost silky hand feel. The fabric has a crisp characteristic and generally feels the smoothest due to its lack of texture.
We suggest poplin shirts for: formal occasions, for everyday business looks, and for ceremonies.
Twill: Comprised of a distinct diagonal pattern, twill drapes very well, is resistant to creases, and easy to iron. Twill fabric is heavier and softer than poplin however, twill does not have as crisp of a feel.
We suggest a twill shirt for: great everyday shirts from business to travel.
Herringbone: Inspired from the bones of a herring fish, the twill fabric is woven to create a chevron "V-shaped" design. Herringbone harbors a smooth hand feel, a textured warmth, and a slight sheen, making this a great crossover option for both dress and casual needs.
We suggest Herringbone shirts for: business dress occasions, and casual occasions when you want to add detail to your look.
