Soft Ivy Button Down Collar Diagram

Soft Ivy Button Down Collar

Collar roll. And plenty of it. This decidedly casual collar style is more expressive than most modern button down collars.

Soft Long One Button Cuff Diagram

Soft Long One Button Cuff

The same shape as our long one button barrel, but without the stiff fusing. Soft, comfortable, and a good match for casual style shirts.

Soft Wide Front Placket Diagram Rounded Pocket Diagram

Soft Wide Front Placket, Rounded Pocket

A traditional take on the casual soft placket. The wider 1.5" unfused front makes for a perfect relaxed look.

Fabric Info

Fabric Description

A classic heavy oxford in dusty slate melange.

Woven with an 80s 2-ply construction, this fabric has a similar heft to our classic heavy oxford but with a slightly different matte finish. Hardy, remarkably soft, and incredibly resilient, American Pima cotton is ideal for oxford shirts and its look and feel only improve with wash and wear. This soft, dusty blue melange is an all-rounder that belongs in every guy’s closet. It looks effortless whether it’s worn untucked with jeans or tucked into chinos under a sport coat.

Recommended Styling: Try it with our Soft Ivy Button Down collar, Soft Front placket, and Soft One Button cuff for a classic OCBD, or go with the Soft Roma Cutaway collar for more of a sprezzy Italian vibe.

    It was a bit lighter in color than I thought it would be -- but once I got over the surprise, I was liking the color: it’s almost a white shirt but with a blush of blue. Pretty cool. I’m still searching for an Oxford cloth that has a navy-blue thread instead of merely dark blue. The net result, in a true Oxford (i.e. that has white thread intermixed with the colored thread), is a shirt color that is a darker blue than the standard blue Oxford. Gitman had such a color, 30 years ago, and I’m still looking! But I am pleased with this shirt’s color, light thought it is.

    I wish it were more wrinkle-resistant. I also ordered the washed faded heavy Oxford and that is better out of the dryer. I also find drying the shirts to damp-dry and then hanging them for final drying works well; you should recommend that! The fabric seems durable and the color is great!

    This is a really nice heavy weight oxford fabric. I think that your 3/5 score for wrinkle resistance is right. The only thing that I would mention to anyone considering this fabric is that to me it looked maybe a shade lighter than then what is shown on the website; although it still works for me and I am really pleased with the result.
