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.

Twill   [n.] \ˈtwil\ A textile weave where one thread passes over another then under two or more others making the fabric look like it has diagonal lines.

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

These Perry Ellis stretch twill pants are great for a casual day at the office or can be dressed down with a T-shirt, while these Perry Ellis refined twill pants are dressier.

This checked dress shirt from Roundtree & Yorke Gold Label is perfect with a tie for professional polish or keep your look sleek and casually stylish with this silky finish striped sportshirt, also from Roundtree & Yorke.

Step up your style with this striped twill jacket or vest from Perry Ellis.

You can accessorize your looks with this Polo Ralph Lauren waxed twill messenger bag or this Kangol twill army cap.  In cold weather, you can add rugged style with this Polo Ralph Lauren military combat jacket.

Boy Meets Girl: Herringbone Patterns

This season, women’s fashion is all about boy meets girl. Traditional patterns put a menswear spin on ladylike silhouettes.

Named for the shape of the herring’s backbone, the herringbone pattern is made up of short, slanted parallel lines that create a broken chevron-like shape. Herringbone patterns are found in brickwork, tile and textiles and are traditionally associated with wool menswear.

This season, shake up the expected with a feminine take on this classic pattern.

1. Antonio Melani Elvin herringbone jacket and Maxine herringbone wide-leg pants: An updated take on the traditional herringbone suit, the Elvin jacket features a kissing front and curve-hugging fit that couples well with the flattering wide-leg silhouette of the Maxine pants.

2. Preston & York Cecile dress: Camel herringbone and espresso colorblocking create a trend-loving look. An inset waist features shiny goldtone hardware.

3. Antonio Melani Caleigh dress: This dress features black and white herringbone with a face-framing cowlneck. A banded waist with button details slims your figure.

4. Vince Camuto suede and tweed dress: One of our favorite feminine takes on this classic pattern, this dress has a curve-hugging silhouette and real brown suede piecing in all the right places.

Men: Dress Up or Down in Linen

Linen and linen blends are familiar fibers for warmer weather and bring to mind soft, breathable fabrics. But did you know that linen can create many versatile looks? More than just a sportshirt material, linen is used to create suits and pants appropriate for warmer climes.


For a look that’s perfect at the office or for a special occasion, try this combination from Perry Ellis. Everything is coordinated for you — from a Perry Ellis jacket, vest, sportshirt and pants to a pair of Hush Puppies oxfords.










This same Perry Ellis jacket can be worn with a V-neck tee, linen jeans and Sperry Top-Sider boat shoes for a more casual look.












As the temperatures  climb, you may find you prefer to wear cool, crisp white clothing like these separates from Perry Ellis.












Combine some of these same elements with a Cremieux fedora hat and Sperry Top-Sider boat shoes to create a fun, casual vacation or weekend approach.

For more ideas, check out all of our linen clothing for men.
