There are few items truly deserving of the ‘timeless classic’ accolade – but the Oxford shirt is justifiably one of them. With its unique qualities and smart-casual aesthetic, this is a shirt that has outlasted generations and trends to become the undisputed wardrobe essential it is today.

Characterised by its visible basketweave structure, the Oxford cloth, which was actually invented in 19th-century Scotland and named after the prestigious university, is among the most durable and easy-to-care-for cotton fabrics around. Practical, comfortable and elegant, it’s no wonder the Oxford shirt appeared first on the backs of English polo players (complete with a button-down collar) and later as a definitive part of the 1950’s Ivy-League look.

Today, the versatile Oxford shirt can be worn with just about anything, anywhere – from your smartest suits to your chinos or jeans; rolled-up sleeves optional. Our Oxfords are made using the highest-quality cloth, which ages beautifully over time. Discover our range of colours, designs and collar-types, including our traditional button-downs, for a relaxed style that nods to the shirt’s sporty beginnings.
