Steeped in history and tradition, the oxford shirt has made its mark in the apparel industry. Originally, the shirt was made in the 19th century by a fabric mill who developed four shirt fabrics named after ivy league universities. The other fabrics Yale, Cambridge, and Harvard have since vanished while the classic, long-lived oxford continues to be a staple in every wardrobe.
While many trends in the fashion industry come and go, the one essential that has remained the same is the oxford button-down. The oxford provides the perfect, clean look making it very popular in school dress codes. They are the textbook dress item for chapel days, pairing it with a custom school tie for the guys and the female-cut oxford is super spiffy with a school plaid skirt or skort.
