100% cotton but a low thread count and unadvertised wrinkle-resistant treatment give this shirt a coarse hand. STP uses the word "crisp" for obvious positive connotations, but this fabric is a disappointment. I even checked the label because I was certain the shirt was a 60/40 polyester cotton blend.
The construction is okay but probably only 18-20 stitches to an inch; so the shirt will not drape naturally when worn but probably will hold its shape better when laundered. Part of the trade-off with "easy-care" options. The fit is generous but the shoulder pleats are not deep enough to do much more than billow as soon as you put on the garment. If you have broad shoulders, sit bent over a desk all day or tend to move around a lot; you probably will appreciate some added sleeve length to offset the cuff riding up your arm when the limited give of the shoulder pleats is exhausted and expansion has to come from elsewhere. The spread collar is a wide spread and will require a thick tie knot to fill the space. This is not a spread collar you will want to wear open collared. Final verdict: I might wear this when I'm traveling before eventually giving it to Goodwill.
