THE FALL STYLE ISSUE: THE WHITE OXFORD


f your correspondent were a betting man, he’d say that if one were to look up the word “shirt” in the dictionary, one would find a picture of a white oxford. This is shirting bedrock; an if-I-could-only-wear-one-shirt-for-the-rest-of-my-life contender.

It’s a clean blank canvas, ready for you to paint your sartorial whimsy upon.

And who better to cop one from than prep legends Brooks Brothers, oldest men’s clothier in America and the ones who put everyone from Kennedy to Warhol in, you guessed it … a white oxford.

Best part: the Brothers Brooks now make their oxfords in three different fits, so you’re guaranteed to find one that fits ya' like armor.

Now all you need is some paint.

The Fall Style Issue: The White Oxford

This is what we mean by blank canvas — a stylish-but-unobtrusive anchor around which you can add eye-catching conversation pieces. Pieces like an oxblood trouser, blue leather bag or cardigan covered in bees, for example.
