Poplin, sometimes called broadcloth, is a plain weave which means the threads alternately cross over and then under each other. This results in a very smooth and durable fabric that has an almost silky hand feel, particularly with higher thread counts. Also, poplins look very crisp when ironed.
It is considered some of the best in the world due to its extra long staple, which means it has longer fibers, resulting in a silkier, more durable fabric. Nearly all of our dress shirts are 100% pure Egyptian cotton, but for a few cut from linen or linen-cotton blends.

Dobby is a woven fabric produced on the dobby loom, characterised by small geometric patterns and extra texture in the cloth. The warp and weft threads may be the same colour or different. Satin threads are particularly effective in this kind of weave as their texture will highlight the pattern.
