Fabric Info

Fabric Description

Every man should own an oxford shirt. Comfortable, hard-wearing, and incredibly versatile, oxfords are an absolute wardrobe staple. Our heavy oxfords have just the right amount of heft to them—they’re woven with a 40/1 x 21/2 construction for a fabric that feels substantial, but not overly thick. They’re also highly resilient, meaning they’ll last for years and only get better the more they’re washed and worn. You can dress an oxford up under a sport coat or dress it down with your favorite pair of jeans. It’s one of the few fabrics that can just as easily be worn with a tie as it can be worn rumpled and untucked. Our lilac heavy oxford is just the right shade of purple that's easy to wear and a nice way to break up your white and blue shirts. Try it with our Soft Ivy Button Down Collar, Soft Front Placket, and a Soft One-Button Cuff for a classic oxford cloth button down (OCBD), or go with one of our soft spread collars for more of a sprezzy Italian vibe.

    I love the colour of this fabric! It’s a beautiful lavender that really stands out without being too showy. The texture is quite nice too. The weight of the oxford is just right, and holds a crease on the sleeves very nicely.

    This is a wonderfully heavy shirt that is durable, warm, and looks great. It’s one hundred percent cotton which I think is really comfortable. I wear it to the office and roll my sleeves up to my elbows for a more casual look. Wrinkles come out easily and I has a crisp appearance after I iron it.

    Nice subtle color. The heavier weight will break in beautifully, I’m sure. Obviously this isn’t the fabric for you if you want to iron it to death for fear of wrinkles. It has a rumple to it, but that’s what you want in an OCBD.

    Having purchased an Oxford previously, I purchased this one with trepidation. The first Oxford I purchased was (and still is ) very stiff and pulls across the chest although it is the same size/dimensions as other shirts which fit great across chest. I’m not sure if its a size issue or just the fabric. Thankfully, this Oxford much softer and has no such constrictions. Nice soft fabric yet substantial. One minor gripe would be that the color is more vibrant on website than in reality. I can live with that however and look forward to purchasing other Oxfords w/o reservation.
