Detail of Oxford Cloth Button Down Shirt

A Shirt with

The oxford cloth button down (OCBD) crossed the Atlantic from the UK in the late 1800s. By the 1960s it was the de facto uniform on Ivy League campuses, and throughout the years became decidedly democratic in its adoption. It offered a certain elevated practicality and wearability that was widely appealing and has continued to endure.

The oxford shirt looks great with just about anything. Wear it rumpled with jeans, pressed with a jacket and tie, untucked with chinos and sneakers—there’s no end to its chameleon-like abilities. The subtly textured and durable fabric only gets better the more you wear and wash it, so keep it in your weekly rotation and let it develop lived-in character.

Beyond the

In the golden age of oxford shirts you would really only find white, light blue, a few pastel colors, and a handful of basic stripes. These days there are some incredible riffs on the classic weave. Dark saturated colors, subtle melange styles, and dynamic stripes are perfect for those who love their OCBDs but want to try something different.
