The Broadcloth Dress Shirt
Sometimes used interchangeably with the term poplin, broadcloth is among the most popular and dressiest fabrics around today.
Its plain weave also makes it a good option to support all kinds of patterns and colour combinations, since those stylistic elements are allowed to flourish on their own. That being said, a solid white broadcloth dress shirt is equally impactful in a corporate environment or upscale setting.
Although broadcloth is primarily a formal fabric, it can be used in casual shirts as well. When this type of weave forms a plaid or large gingham pattern, for example, it creates the perfect shirt for gatherings with friends. Look for other signs of the fabric’s character in key details like thread count—the highest of which is responsible for that lightweight, luxurious feel.
Broadcloth’s relatively dull finish stands in contrast to, say, royal oxford, but that doesn’t take away from its high-class appeal. A broadcloth dress shirt can be the perfect choice for your most formal occasions, such as weddings, where you’re looking to present a clean, sophisticated facade. The lack of texture will balance nicely with a tie and suit of whichever pattern or colour you choose.
