“Great fabric, but I’d say the standard oxford you guys have is just as good.”
Keith in Brooklyn, NY
“This is a classic Oxford with some body, it really maintains a press and would highly recommend.”

An absolute essential. A light blue oxford cloth button down is the sport shirt that seems to work in any situation. Hardy and beautifully textured, oxford cloth only improves with age and wear. It's the sort of shirt you’ll have in your closet for years and it’ll never let you down—especially when it's made from a premium 2-ply American Pima cotton like this one is.
The perfect oxford cloth starts with the perfect cotton, and American Pima is one of the best types for oxfords due to its incredible durability and remarkable softness. It's a more matte cotton, which is exactly what you want in a more casual fabric like this. The 80/2 x 21/2 construction gives it the right amount of beef, and after a few washes it really softens up. Learn more about Oxford Shirts here.
Recommended Styling: We love the ’60s vibe of our Soft Ivy Button Down Collar on an oxford (it has just the right amount of collar roll), and we always pair it with a Soft Front placket and Soft One Button cuff. Try a Colorado BD for a more contemporary collar (read: smaller), or a Soft President Spread if you'd like a little more versatility.
