This shirt was created in the city of Oxford. Its purest cotton fabric is what makes it unique and suitable for those looking for a refined and impeccable outfit, which is at the same time informal and on-trend.
The Oxford fabric is one of the most popular for making men's shirts. A pure cotton fabric, created with thin coloured warp yarns and thicker white weft yarns, which accentuate the woven basket effect and give the shirt the typical «dotted» appearance.
The Oxford fabric is durable, highly resistant and suitable for all seasons, and is particularly recommended for casual and informal shirts.
The men’s button down shirt was created as a legacy of the polo shirts worn by polo players in the 19th century. Annoyed at having their collars continually flapping over their faces during matches, they decided to use some buttons to fix them down.
Since 1960, thanks to the work of the famous tailor Ben Sherman, the button down became a true style icon.
The shirt with a button down collar belongs, by definition, to casual everyday wear, but the latest fashion trends have broken with this tradition and this shirt is showing more of its elegant side, making it suitable even for more formal occasions.
