What’s the difference in fabrics

Shirts made from this material are easy to iron and do not wrinkle easily it’s a strong fabric in a plain weave of any fibre such as cotton or blend.

Fine Twill / Twill
Twill is a type of textile weave with a pattern of diagonal parallel ribs. This is done by passing the weft thread over one or more warp threads and then under two or more warp threads and so on, with a "step" or offset between rows to create the characteristic diagonal pattern. Because of this structure, twills generally drape well which naturally lends itself to a more formal shirt attire. Soil and stains are less noticeable on the uneven surface of twills than on smooth surfaces, such as plain weaves.

Herringbone (variety of Twill)
This fabric is considered a double sided twill in a distinctive V-shaped weaving pattern. The pattern is called herringbone because it resembles the skeleton of a herring fish and you are able to see the weave on both sides of the fabric.

The Oxford weave has a basket weave structure and a lustrous aspect making it a popular fabric for a dress shirt. This is a more versatile weave that can be paired with either business or sporty dress codes. Pinpoint = A much finer version of oxford Panama = A wider weave version of Oxford

Fil a Fil
Also known as End on End. This is a closely woven, plain weave cloth created by the alternation of light and dark warp and weft threads, resulting in a heathered effect.

The English term comes from the French "fil-à-fil", literally "thread-to-thread". End-on-end is typically woven using white thread with another colour to create a fabric with a subtly heathered texture that, from a distance, appears as a solid colour. Occasionally, variations are seen which use two colours of thread (instead of white).
