While this is not a hard and fast rule, most Oxford shirts have button-down collars. This style of collar was inspired by polo players and was originally mostly used on sport shirts. Today, an Oxford shirt with a button-down collar can be sported as a part of casual or formal attire.
Weaved in a unique way, weft threads are crossed over warp threads, making the classic shirt stand out. Combining a single-colour thread that is crossed over with a white thread, thus giving it its iconic faint checkerboard appearance.
An Oxford shirt is usually made using a stiffer and heavier cotton fabric than you’re usually used to, which gives it a rich appearance.
Oxford shirts usually come fitted with long sleeves and a single cuff. For a sharp formal look, button the sleeves and for a more casual outing, roll them up neatly.
