Inspired by a mix of 1930s industrial wear and 1980s power dressing, The New Oxford is a closet essential. Wear it buttoned up for a meeting, as a light jacket for running errands, and then tie it up at your waist when you’re off duty.
A true women's workshirt.
Tough and durable, but, damn, it's elegant.
Meet our Merino Wool
Made in the oldest operating textile mill in Germany, our merino wool is built to last and keep you warm. Strong and soft, it's just as comfortable traipsing through a January off-site as it is braving July's office AC. It is extremely breathable and adjusts to changes in your body temperature throughout the day.
Naturally wrinkle resistant, merino wool absorbs the odor from your sweat and releases it only when washed. That means it doesn't need to be washed after every wear. That's great news because the majority of a garment's impact on our environment comes, surprisingly, not from its production, but from its time spent in a washing machine and dryer.
Our merino wool comes from sheep living in New Zealand and Australia. It's then spun into yarn and woven in Bavaria, Germany. Curious about mulesing? (the practice of removing skin from a sheep's butt) Our suppliers don't do it. (We love the butts of all species equally and support healthy butt practices throughout our entire supply chain. No mulesing for our sheep, no uncomfortable thongs for our models, and only ergonomic chairs for our accountants.
Also, wtf is a Corozo button?
The corozo nut, also called a tagua nut, is a natural material which is commonly used for carving. Turns out, buttons are like tiny carved sculptures which makes corozo a great alternative to plastic for button making.
Why is this shirt called an Oxford?
Back in the 19th century, a guy who owned a Scottish textile mill had a brilliant idea for a marketing campaign: name the season’s fabrics after all the fancy universities. All the rich boys who go to these schools will want them and they will all sell - cue happily ever after. Well, it kind of worked! No one really liked the Cambridge, Harvard and Yale weaves, but the Oxford — now that was a hit. Known for its yarn’s criss-crossing basket weave, Oxford cloth became the go-to garment for British polo players (it was breathable and the closest thing they had to sportswear)
Today, Oxford shirts are made in all types of fabrics - even wooly ones that come from Germany ;)
