Poplin - is a weave that is constructed with equally thick yarn in both the warp and the weft. It is woven together one by one under the principle that the warp yarn is packed tighter than the weft. Poplin is usually woven with a finer yarn resulting in a fabric with a smooth surface. Poplin weave fabrics often have a more formal appearance and therefore are most suitable for more dressed up occasions.
Twill - is characterised by its symmetrical diagonal weave patterns. Twill fabrics are appreciated by many for their soft feel, lustre and resistence to wrinkles. The fine structure and composition of its weave make it a slightly heavier fabric. Twill fabrics suit both formal and informal settings.
Satin - is related to the Twill weave but lacks the Twill's diagonal weave patterns. Like Poplin, the Satin weave has a smooth surface, while its more complex weave structure makes it softer and more wrinkle resistent. Satin often has a pronounced lustre that makes it most suitable for a more formal setting.
Oxford – Manufactured with in so-called 'basket weave' technique where two parallel warp yarns are interwoven with the weft. The warp weave is normally the only one colored, with the weft consisting of white yarn. Oxford weave is more often a coarser yarn which results in the trademark coarser fabric quality. Thanks to its much more relaxed style, Oxford is the perfect option for casual or less formal settings. Its robust character gives it excellent durability, while the fabric gets a nice worn feel the more the shirt is used and washed.

Pinpoint – manufactured, like the Oxford, with a basket weave where only the warp is dyed. The big difference from the Oxford fabric is its Pinpoint weave which gives it a quality that can be described as a hybrid between Oxford and Poplin. Pinpoint as a rule is soft and works just as well in the office as it does in a casual setting.
Seersucker – usually consists of two contrasting stripes, one of which is made by letting alternating the tension of the warp yarn, while the other is conventionally woven. The effect becomes a puckered surface that makes the fabric feel airy and cool. Seersucker has historical ties to British colonies but is currently primarily associated with the American East Coast.
