The oxford shirt is a staple that is named for the weave of the fabric, which is notable for its basketweave and hardy texture. The fabric, in turn, was named after Oxford University.
Typically associated with a preppy style, how do you modernize, simplify and elevate it?
It starts with materiality - a more structured oxford fabric to hold its shape throughout the day.
Than the form - perfectly tapered around the contours of your upper body, cut just right so that it can be worn untucked, a shorter sleeve cuff so that you can roll up your sleeves easily, and just the right amount of canvassing in the collars.
"Design is neither an intellectual nor a material affair, but simply an integral part of the stuff of life, necessary for everyone in a civilized society."
- Walter Gropius, German architect and founder of Staatliches Bauhaus
