Over time, my wardrobe changes. My style is still the same, but I’ll go through sweater phases, then back to sport coats, or a boot phase, then back to a double-monk phase. My ‘middle 80%’ is consistent. Good jeans, good khakis, good shoes, and a lot of OCBDs. I have a lot of each, especially oxford cloth shirts – in almost every color and style. The blue OCBD is my go-to.
One piece that was a noticeably absent was a yellow oxford. I absolutely LOVE oxford cloth shirts. Brooks Brothers makes a great one, and I’m sure you can get Read Wall or Gitman to make one for you. I love the way they fit, and especially the way they wear. NEVER wear a non-iron oxford cloth shirt, as it kills all the charm. Must-irons hold an ironing well, and if taken care of, will last for years (and years). This post isn’t an ode to true oxford cloth, but you get my point.
The point of this post is to talk about the yellow oxford. I would argue that it has a place in the rotation. I really like the look with jeans or khakis, on it’s own or under a navy sport coat…I think it’s a cool look that is as versatile as a pink oxford.
What do you think? When would you wear it? What would you pair it with?
