Not sure?


El Jefe, “The Boss.” The name says it all. This shirt is bold and powerful; the dense black check pattern lets you know that this is a shirt that means business and demands your attention. But the smooth poplin fabric also shows that El Jefe has a softer side as well. El Jefe also features our new Semi-spread, or “Ainsley” style. It’s a classic collar that looks great dressed up with a tie or casually unbuttoned. Along with our new mitered convertible cuffs, this is one of our most versatile shirt styles yet.

Egyptian cotton is a particular variety that is grown in only a few other places. It is renowned as some of the best in the world. It has an extra long staple, which means it has longer fibers, resulting in a silkier, more durable fabric.Poplin, sometimes called broadcloth, is a plain weave which means the threads alternately cross over and then under each other. This results in a very smooth and durable fabric that has an almost silky hand feel, particularly with higher thread counts. Also, poplins look very crisp when ironed.
