Of all the dress shirt fabrics out there — plain weaves, basket weaves, and twill — that last group offers the most inherent stain resistance. That's but one reason why it's a staple dress shirting.
Made up in 2x2 ply, 100's cotton. 2-ply means 2 separate yarns are wound up together to make a single, thicker yarn; 2x2 mean both the horizontal (weft) and vertical (warp) yarns are 2-ply. Such construction, while more expensive, makes for a far more durable shirt than single ply versions. Other details inculde a semi-spread collar, plain front (no placket), and shoulder pleats.
Semi-Custom Dress Shirts
Besides the usual choice of neck and sleeve sizes, Antonio Valente also lets you specify fit (reguar or trim), cuff (French or button), and whether you'd like a pocket. That means you can configure the same size and fabric shirt, e.g. a 16.5R white twill, up to eight different ways. You get the convenient, quick delivery of a ready-to-wear dress shirt with some of the custom options usually available only via a made-to-measure or bespoke programs. (We also offer made-to-measure shirts by Antonio Valente in our San Francisco store.)
