The New Oxford

Spark Red
$248

A true workshirt: tough and durable, but, damn it's elegant. Now, with Italian painted-wood buttons.

Relaxed in the shoulders and strong in the collar, The New Oxford in Spark Red is made from 100% merino wool featuring locally-sourced, Italian-crafted painted wood 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).

Dee, pictured here, has a 36" bust, 26" waist, and 36" hip and wears a size S.

Why we make it:

Crafted in New York, The New Oxford is the ultimate closet essential. Inspired by a mix of 1930s industrial wear and 1980s power dressing, it’s structured yet generous, soft but wildly elegant.

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.

It's like a better cardigan.

A layer you'll reach for all winter and keep with you all spring.
A lot of love in a little button

We’ve experimented with nuts, metals, pearls, and now this season, we’re proud to introduce a new material to the scene: painted wood.

From our friends in the Garment District, we’ve married our merino wool with a wooden button carved from Portugeuse olivewood trees and then painted in Italy.

Thank you to our friends in the Garment District for helping us find it.

Meet our Merino Wool

Made in the oldest operating textile mill in Germany, our merino wool is strong, soft and built to last and keep you warm. Naturally wrinkle resistant, merino wool is extremely breathable and adjusts to changes in your body temperature throughout the day. Furthermore, 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.

Curious about mulesing?
Our merino wool comes from sheep living in New Zealand and Australia. It’s spun into yarn and woven in Bavaria, Germany. Mulesing is 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.
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 ;)
