Why is Poplin Shirt Good for Summer?

Have you ever heard that you should wear a Poplin Shirt in Summer? In this article, we will talk about what is a Poplin Shirt and why it is good to wear one in the Summer day.

There are different ways to weave cotton, like Oxford, Twill, Dobby or Herringbone. Poplin is one of them and it is also called broadcloth. For a poplin shirt, the cotton is densely woven in criss-cross shape. This pattern gives the shirt strength but is also very thin and lightweight at the same time. They also have a soft silky touch. The cross shape also allows better air circulation and keeps you cooler in a hot Summer day. It also serves as a good work shirt as it has little sheen, which gives a more professional look.

 

This Summer, we have brought you Poplin Shirts from Filippa Ka leading Scandinavian brand from Sweden.
