A true woman's workshirt: tough and durable, but damn, it's elegant. Now, with an extra splash of gold.
Relaxed in the shoulders and strong in the collar, The New Oxford in Black Enamel & Gold is made from 100% merino wool featuring locally sculpted gold-rimmed corozo buttons. It boasts a front pocket, pleated cuffs, an extended hem and a back box pleat that rests between your shoulder blades. Lastly, the swoop of the back hem has been cut to flattering perfection (while also allowing you to bend over without the fear of butt crack exposure).
Crafted in New York, this special holiday update is the fancy friend of The New Oxford in Black Enamel.
For when you have the urge to be both the most comfortable and best-dressed at the holiday party.
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.
We’ve thought of buttons as mini sculptures for a while now.... So it was only a matter of time before we started having some fun.
In New York’s Garment Center, we worked with our Button Guy to glow-up our signature Corozo’s with a gold-plated base and rim. After multiple molds, casts, shrinkages, and plating treatments, we think you’ll agree that we made the ultimate Holiday Trimming.
More about corozo: 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.
Meet our Merino Wool
Naturally wrinkle resistant, merino wool is extremely breathable and adjusts to changes in your body temperature throughout the day. Even more, it absorbs the odor from your sweat and releases it only when washed which means that 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, 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.)
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 ;)
