Best Shirting Fabrics for the Warm Months

Looking for some great new dress shirts but unsure which fabric will keep you cool this Spring and Summer?

My first recommendation to stay cool and dry during the warm months would, hands down, be a Broadcloth. Known for it’s smooth finish, a Broadcloth fabric is both dressy and versatile. It is lightweight and durable and is what 90% of dress shirts are made from. I recommend an all cotton Broadcloth in either our Deluxe or Luxury line.

If you are looking for a bit more of a casual shirt, I would point you toward a Chambray fabric. Chambray, also known as End on end, was first invented by the French (fil-à-fil), a fabric in which white thread is interwoven with a colored thread to produce an interesting, subtle texture. Soft and comfortable, our chambray dress shirts are a great wardrobe staple and transition well from business formal to country club casual.
