We've named our Shoomaker shirt for the patron's of DC's infamous Shoomaker Bar, the place where George Williamson invented the Rickey. Shoomaker's was a popular hole-in-the-wall for journalists, lobbyists and politicians: men of wealth and importance who valued the quality of the bar's selection. The Shoomaker was lively and vibrant and a place to be seen: we think this describes the shirt pretty well too.
Our Shoomaker shirt is made of a two-ply poplin in a complex blue and fuchsia check and features our signature tall semi-spread collar and convertible cuffs (can be buttoned and worn with links).
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.
