There are very few things on earth better than an old worn-in oxford cloth button down (OCBD as they say on the boards) shirt. Heavy wool socks from the oven on a snowy day is up there. Breakfast at the Sugar Bowl in Darien when feeling hungover is close. But an oxford cloth in a state of deterioration is a gift from the almighty. The good people at Brooks Brothers still have a shirt factory hammering away (in North Carolina I believe), making American shirts for American men. Brooks is owned by the Italians now, but you can’t have everything now can you. Besides, I’ll take the Italians over Marks & Spencer any day. Speaking of OCBDs, J. Press makes a good great one too, and with a flap pocket. I’d venture to say that I wear one of these two shirts 90% of the time. They go perfect with everything, bathing suits, jeans, Sundays, loafers, your girlfriend. The possibilities are endless.
