"Poplin shirt," to those of us who toiled for Uncle Sam's armed forces way back when, was a lightweight khaki shirt, part of the Class B uniform. I remember it most for its willingness to wrinkle in any relative humidity over 10 percent.

I mentally classify "poplin" as a "Little Women" word, since I'm sure that's where I first encountered it. Along with charabanc and many more.
