The Oxford shirt is a secret (or perhaps not-so-secret) style weapon that’s going to carry you from late summer into early fall — and beyond — with ease. What’s the secret here? Well, our favorite picks for the best Oxford shirts have a few things in common. That is, they feature casual versatility, allowing them to be worn untucked with dark denim and canvas sneakers, or else layered under a grey crewneck sweater when temperatures drop. And they’ll look great in just about any style situation. That goes for an important late summer work meeting or an even more important early fall date. The truth is, the best Oxford shirts go just about anywhere you want to go, no questions asked. This list is a great place to start planning your next style ensemble.
A pro surfer teams up with a designer to start a clothing brand and the results are stylish, sustainable, and easy to wear. That’s certainly the case with the Nomadic Oxford, particularly in a versatile Army color for early fall. Wear this one — featuring organic cotton, no less — with your favorite pair of beat-up denim and some trusty suede chukka boots for a casual Friday at your 9-to-5. That’s more than good enough for the lead-off spot in our list of the best Oxford shirts, don’t you think?
Nearly $100 can seem a bit steep for an Oxford shirt, but Flint and Tinder, the in-house brand at Huckberry, makes it all worth the investment. In particular, soft Portuguese cotton, a tailored-but-not-tight fit, and an array of neutral easily wearable colors (like the classic shade of blue shown here) make these Oxford shirts a surefire favorite (no doubt one of the best Oxford shirts out there, needless to say).
The white cotton Oxford should be a staple item in every guy’s wardrobe in every single season. The Taylrd Clothing White Oxford is versatile and affordable and can be worn with dark denim and brown leather dress shoes at the office just as readily as with tan chinos and grey high-top canvas sneakers on the weekend.
Normally the purview of baritone lead singers indie rock bands (we’re looking at you, Matt Berninger.), the black Oxford shirt is a surprisingly rock-ready and office-friendly shirt. Particularly the Taylor Stitch Jack Shirt, we’d say. The Jack Shirt features premium fabric, a dialed-in fit, and the sort of design that looks seriously cool when worn with grey denim at your next outdoor festival — and it’s even handier in that it can pull double duty with a navy blazer and light grey chinos at the office.
An Oxford shirt has certain connotations, preppy among them. The Harris Buttondown Shirt from West Coast style purveyors Johnnie-O is so much more, though. Laid-back, extremely well-made, and perfect to wear to your next party (with dark denim) or at the office (with a grey cotton blazer), the Harris Buttondown checks all the right boxes.
Brooks Brothers touts its Oxford shirts as American menswear icons and the brand is absolutely right. The Regent Fit Oxford Sport Shirt is as classic as it gets, from the sturdy fabric to the crisp white color. The Brooks Brothers Oxford shirt can easily take you from late summer and on into fall and winter.
Boasting a slim fit and a unique array of color options, we’re fans of the 1901 line of Oxford shirts — you can’t beat the price, the quality, or the versatility. We think this one works best with charcoal chinos and dark brown suede Chelsea boots to get ready for fall. It all starts with your shirt, after all.
