Fits better, material ain't imo. Gap ones are so light they're more like a linen shirt.

Carhartt are now doing an Oxford shirt for about £50.00, havent seen these in the flesh.

Saw the red one of these in Size? and thought it felt quite decent, not really heavy and not paper-thin. I was actually quite tempted but am still a bit unsure about the colour as they often look a bit pink to me.

If you've got £200 to blow on a shirt….make it that. Band of outsiders. Such a nice looking shirt-thick material, quality finishing.

But surely you must realise that fashion is merely swings and roundabouts with new takes on the old?

AND i also think that button down shirts and chinos are pretty much staples in a mans wadrobe..

that's not fashion, it's clothes. there is no new take on those 3 items. in 1985, we wanted the Ivy League/Italian 'Paninaro' scooter boy look and there was a scene to go with it but this is just a generic M&S blue harbour middle aged, middle Englander thing .
There's so much more to explore and available now

Changing your Avatar doesn't make your posts anymore tedious Dag. And EVERS, while I appreciate what you're saying, it's kind of redundant in a thread about Oxford shirts.

not sure what you're saying Km but to me these items are such a cop-out given what's out there these days. leave it to the public school boys and the aged.

and this couldn't be more wrong, as always it's all about the circumstances or setting in which a trend occurs. I believe noble pointed out the humorous thing in weller wearing rolled up chinos 25 years ago. nothing new in the clothes/style the style council wore, but that socialist weller wore something looking like it came straight out of brideshead revisited (albeit abit more colorful knitwear) put it in a new interesting context, ta-da new interesting trend born for you to explore, and yes it also somewhat tied into the paninaro thing wiht italys monied classes love for expensive preppie casualwear but it didn't make it less interesting.

actuallt tc222 might be a hardcore communist heroinist getting into oxfords and chinos, that would be a very interesting take on it

utter crap - weller was rehashing a mod look from the early and mid sixties and tried to make it sophisticated by taking photos of himself in Paris. he was doing nothing new or interesting at all. his look was retro and generally has been for his entire career.

as for kids today wearing their fathers weekend wear/business casual today, well please kindly inform me of the cultural context of this other than 80's fancy dress.
