“The fabric is very nice—nicer I think than the Heavy Oxford (which I also have). Saw some recommendations to go ahead and add additional length to the overall shirt and the sleeves and collar. I didn’t but wished I h”

The blue oxford cloth button down is an absolute essential. Period. It's the sport shirt that seems to work in any situation. Hearty with beautiful texture, oxford cloth only improves with age. It's the sort of shirt you can have in your closet for years and will never break down. Especially when it's made from a premium 2-ply American Pima cotton like this one is.
You see, the perfect oxford cloth starts with the perfect cotton. While Egyptian and Sea Island cotton are often lauded for their quality, American Pima is the perfect cotton for oxford fabric due to its incredible durability and remarkable softness. It's a more matte cotton, which is exactly what you want on a more casual fabric like this. The 80/2 x 21/2 construction gives it the right amount of beefiness, and after a few washes it really softens up. We love the ’60s vibe of our Soft Ivy Button Down Collar on an oxford (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. Learn more about Oxford Shirts here.
