Broadcloth is a very popular fabric for dress shirt. Also known as "poplin", the fabric is woven using a simple plain and closed weave. The higher the yarn count, the silkier the fabric becomes. This white/blue plain silky fabric, in combination with the spread collar that adds to the traditional look, is perfect for formal or business occasions. "Broadcloth" x "Semi-Spread Collar" is elegance at its simplest and best.
To create a traditional feel, the curve of the collar pattern has been reduced. The new pattern employs a lowered neckline to create a relaxed look when the collar is opened.
Compared to the Slim Fit, the sleeves and body have been kept spacious. By preserving the size of the back panel, together with bringing the side seams forward, we have incorporated the essential ideas of traditional British and American tailoring.
The special characteristic of our model is its sleeves that naturally point forward. The curve of the sleeve has been tailored to match that of the jacket, which in turn means the cuff of the shirt sleeve and the jacket are parallel.
To preserve a traditional look, the shirt has wider front and sleeve plackets, and also features a wider stitch width in comparison to the Slim Fit. The sleeve plackets employ double stitches to keep this taste. It was inspired by Ivy League style, only the yoke has been narrowed.
The pocket has been placed slightly slanted on the shirt, so that it looks straight when worn. As an added Ivy Look detail, the stitch on the pocket is straight (button-down shirts only).
