Reintroducing the Oxford Cloth Button-Down Shirt
Jul 13, 2022
Few items sum us up like our oxford cloth button-down shirt. It's an enduring bit of menswear, refined and elevated just ever so slightly. While it's never gone away, we felt it was time to reintroduce it. With 29 colours now on offer, you're bound to find what you're after.
There's very little to say about the button-down oxford shirt that hasn't already been said. We know it's all things to all men: bread and butter to the Ivy enthusiasts, a staple for tailoring aficionados, the perfect partner to a pair of jeans for the more casual individual. If we can judge a design's success on the lifespan of its relevance, then the button-down oxford is doing well. A mainstay of wardrobes the world over since its inception as a piece of sporting attire in the early years of the 20th century, the oxford shirt shows no sign of falling out of favour.
When we decided to expand our offering beyond ties all those years ago, the obvious thing to make was a shirt. What good is a tie without one? So, we developed a button-down in our factory in Somerset and have continued to refine it over the years.
It’s easy to take a thing like the oxford shirt for granted. It’s always there, and maybe you’ve lost touch over the years. Well, it’s time to get reacquainted. We’ve considerably beefed up our offering of oxford cloth button-down shirts, with a whopping 29 options to choose from, each made from a new and improved oxford cloth. That’s generous by anyone’s standards.
As ever, each shirt is handcrafted in our aforementioned factory in Chard, Somerset. Single-needle stitching, mother of pearl buttons, and of course that all-important rolling collar are ever-present. It’s a sound investment, because if they’re still in style after a century, chances are they’ll weather another.
