Tailor Store Oxford ShirtsAnywhere, Anyplace, Anytime
Surprising as it may sound, Oxford shirts do not originate from Oxford. The name Oxford shirt derives from the original basket weave production method. First made in Scotland in the 1800s, the Scottish mill which pioneered Oxford cloth, created four fabrics and named them after the world’s most revered universities: Harvard, Cambridge, Yale and Oxford.
Compared to cotton, Oxford fabric is thicker, stronger and symmetrically woven. This gives Oxford shirts a noticeably assuring structure, quality and weight. Beyond the thread, perhaps the most iconic feature of the oxford shirt is its button-down collar, which proves especially effective in keeping the neck area looking crisp, whether a tie is worn or not.
The Oxford shirt pairs well with chinos, sports jackets, denim, shorts, the list goes on. For this reason the Oxford shirt is a superb choice for all occasions, whether formal or relaxed.
