A Shirt with History
While originally developed in Scotland, oxford cloth was named after the prestigious Oxford University in England. British in heritage, it wasn't until Brooks Brothers created their button-down "polo" collar oxford cloth shirts that the oxford shirt became a wardrobe staple.
These hearty sport shirts became the de facto uniform on Ivy League campuses by the 1960's. Yet the oxford shirt is remarkably democratic despite its blue-blooded pedigree.
