“Very heavy oxford fabric”

“exactly what I wanted.”
ken in Little rock, AR
The light blue oxford cloth button down (OCBD) is an absolute essential whether you’re throwing it back to the golden age of Ivy Style or the ‘#menswear’ movement of the last few years. This classic heavy oxford cloth is the perfect option. The 40/1 x 21/2 construction gives it the right amount of beefiness, and after a few washes it really softens up. The color is spot on, too. With alternating white and blue yarns used, it has a really subtle color variation that we love. You can’t have enough of these sport shirts in your closet. Slightly rumpled yet highly durable, the more you wear it the more personality the shirt will take on. 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 Cutaway if you're looking for a little extra sprezzatura. Learn more about Oxford Shirts here.
