Broadcloth Shirt Fabric
Broadcloth (or plain weave) fabric is rich with history.
The Dutch first produced the fabric in the 11th century. For many custom shirt enthusiasts broadcloth is a favorite.
Here are some stand out characteristics:
- It is soft and wears in nicely
- It is fine and feels confortable on the skin
- Has a smooth surface
Broadcloth is a simple weave (hence plain weave). Each weft thread crosses the warp thread, going over one and under the next.
