"But wait," you say. "How can you tell? They don't have that classic Oxford button-down-collar."
Good catch. Here's the scoop:
An Oxford shirt is defined by the fabric it's made out of, not the button down. The traditional Oxford is made from regular Oxford cloth (named after Oxford the school) with a heavier weave, in order to withstand endless hours of elbow-bending toil in the library stacks. Those shirts have the button down collar and aren't meant to be worn with a suit or even a jacket.
Our Oxfords, made from Pinpoint Oxford cloth, are a giant mother-may-I step up in quality from the traditional Oxfords, but are still meant to be "work shirts." The thicker weave, combining color-died and white thread in a pinpoint pattern, stands up stronger over time and has a more casual appearance than dressier shirt fabrics like broadcloth. The two-tone thread warms the look of the shirt and is in fact warmer than dress shirt fabrics because of the heavier weave.
So how do you know when to wear an Oxford?
- Is your office culture business casual?
- Do you conduct your history seminars in a shirt and bow tie?
- Are you a roll-up-the-sleeves, in-it-to-the-elbows kind of work-a-day Saint?
- Is your workplace drafty?
If you answered "yes" to one or two of these questions, then you should have a few Parker Pinpoint Oxfords in your closet. If you answered "yes" to three or more, then you should have a closet FULL of Parker Pinpoint Oxfords.
