Alexander West Style Guide: Know Your Fabric Weaves Of all the shirting fabrics that are used in the world, the mighty cotton is King.  Cotton is most commonly used because of its breathability, texture, absorbency, and durability but not all cotton fabrics are the same.  The appearance and feel of fabric is affected by the quality of the cotton as well as the weave. Do you know the difference between a poplin and a twill weave?  For descriptions and recommendations to help you navigate your choices, click on the image.
