Choosing the right fabric can depend on your style and how warm you require the shirt to be. We use nothing but pure cotton in our men’s shirts because it’s dressier than coarser fabrics, the colour is more defined and it feels the most comfortable against the skin. We offer shirts in various different weaves.
The original Jermyn Street fabric, poplin is formal, crisp and clean. It is a light weave that allows for maximum breathability and softness. All our shirts have a poplin weave unless otherwise stated. If choosing a shirt fabric is all a bit of a minefield.
It is a denser weave with a subtle basketweave effect that produces a heavier and warmer fabric than poplin. It is also incredibly soft to the touch and is favoured for its durability.
