the oxford shirt
an enduring classic by polo ralph lauren
straddling the smart/casual line, the oxford shirt is a core piece in any man’s wardrobe
This accomplished wardrobe staple occupies a hallowed space alongside the navy blazer, the Polo shirt, and a great pair of jean in a man’s wardrobe. It’s an absolute essential. Over the years, Ralph Lauren has produced countless variations on the iconic oxford shirt and thanks to its versatility, durability, and hardy weave, it will remain a favourite for years to come.
A CLASSIC TAKE
Sometimes, you just can’t beat an original. Take a classic oxford shirt with smart long sleeves and a tailored fit, accented with the Polo Ralph Lauren crest. Add a slick button-down collar and a buttoned placket and there you have it – a wardrobe must-have. Layer under sophisticated lightweight knitwear on cooler days, drawing attention to the contrasting textures of your jumper against the smooth shirt. A timeless pair of loafers will further ground your look.
Whether it’s nautical stripes in blue and white, a super-smart pinstripe, or minimalistic grey and white, the striped print oxford shirt should never be overlooked. We’re hailing it as a seasonless staple. Dress it down in straight-leg jeans with an on trend, distressed finish, or pair with tailored trousers for a more formal take. For a youthful edge, go for a practical padded jacket as your outerwear choice.
Easy to wear and surprisingly versatile, the long-sleeved oxford shirt in powdery hues offers a winning wardrobe refresh. Baby pink, sky blue, lemon yellow or even pale purple signifies a bright day (whatever the actual weather outside). Get the look in monochromatic leather trainers that will look as stylish for a walk in the park as they will on that coffee date. Don’t forget a flash of statement sock – the affordable way to mix up your outfit of the day or night.
