Ivy League, Yes, Indeed!

22nd Apr 2016

Steeped in history and tradition, the oxford shirt has made its mark in the apparel industry. Originally, the shirt was made in the 19th century by a fabric mill who developed four shirt fabrics named after ivy league universities. The other fabrics Yale, Cambridge, and Harvard have since vanished while the classic, long-lived oxford continues to be a staple in every wardrobe.

While many trends in the fashion industry come and go, the one essential that has remained the same is the oxford button-down. The oxford provides the perfect, clean look making it very popular in school dress codes. They are the textbook dress item for chapel days, pairing it with a custom school tie for the guys and the female-cut oxford is super spiffy with a school plaid skirt or skort.
