Word of the Week: Twill

A few weeks ago, we shared the definition of oxford, the soft fabric weave used for several of the shirts you’ll find on Dillards.com. Today, we’re covering the more versatile twill.

A sturdy and stylish fabric, twill is used to craft everything from pants and shirts to vests, coats and hats.
