Fabric is the primary contributor to the quality of the shirt. A shirt rests on the skin for more than 8 hours every day, so it is important to choose the best possible quality. Here are the details of the fabrics used by Erric Shirts:
Factually, broadcloth is made of wool. However, at present most broadcloth is cotton or cotton blend. It’s tightly woven, lustrous cotton cloth with a fine rib effect. With lack in texture it is most popular in shirts as it is lightweight, smooth, flat looking fabric, with no pattern in the weave of the threads.
One of the prime benefits of buying a custom made shirt is the ability to pick out your own fabric. After the skill of the tailor making the shirt, the quality of the fabric is the single most important factor in ensuring a well-made formal shirt.
Fabrics are available in boundless varieties, with equally wide variations in quality. Thus, choosing the right fabric can be an overwhelming process.

Sometimes, shirts have a label that says, “60s two ply cotton”. While most people ignore this quality mark, few understand its value. This is the description of the yarn used to make the fabric. The feel and comfort of the fabric depends upon the yarn used to weave it. The characteristics of any yarn can be determined by two factors: Ply and Yarn number.
