Though oxford-cloth shirts have been around for more than a hundred years—early on they were uniforms for English polo players—it wasn't until the 1950s that the button-down version became an icon of East Coast preppy style, largely thanks to the Ivy League students who made it part of their daily uniform. Prized for its comfort and versatility, the oxford-cloth button-down (the OCBD to some) has become a menswear cornerstone, a go-to for preppies, street style stars and just about everyone in between.
The Oxford cloth button-down shirt is a quintessential wardrobe staple and a hallmark of old-school collegiate style. It's beloved for its easy versatility: it can dress up chinos or make a suit feel more relaxed. Our oxford is made from American Pima cotton, a species that has longer fibers than other varieties of cotton which makes it stronger, softer and less likely to pill. As an added bonus, it's engineered with mechanical stretch: the 100% cotton fabric is woven loosely, then washed, giving it natural elasticity without having any stretch fibers. We kept the collar unlined and a little on the long side, a nod to its Ivy League heritage. (Fun fact: Yale, Harvard and Cambridge also had shirt fabrics named after them, but none have stood the test of time as well as Oxford's.)
