The Storied Oxford Shirt

Jun 17, 2015

collection of madda fella oxford shirts

The Oxford shirt is a simple, classic style with a storied past. Originating in 19 th century Scotland, the fabric mills named several shirt garments after the leading universities: Yale, Harvard, Cambridge, and of course, Oxford. Only the Oxford shirt has stood the test of time, however, remaining incredibly popular today.

The classic Oxford cloth employs a basket weave of two interlaced fabrics of different weight and color, the secret behind this garment’s versatility as a breathable, durable shirt. When first introduced, these shirts had detachable cuffs and collar, to be easily replaced when worn out. The early 1900s saw the Oxford as the unofficial “uniform” of spectators and players at English polo matches. Later, Ivy League school students of the 50s and 60s made the garment less formal, often wearing it un-tucked with shorts and loafers. The popularity of the Oxford shirt crossed the pond quickly after working its way though the United Kingdom, and well, the rest is history.

Our medium weight Water Landing Oxford is an everyday go-to shirt. Dress it up or dress it down, this is your all purpose classic. And true to its original stitching, these shirts are authentically made from 100% oxford yarn-dyed cotton, and heavy washed for a vintage look and feel.  Available in four colors inspired by the Key West color palette:  Caribbean BlueTequila Sunrise Redblue/white stripe, and burnt orange/white stripe. A subtle embroidered swordfish also adorns the pocket.

Formal or casual, the Water Landing Oxford is for today’s classic fella.
