Finding an Oxford Shirt that Doesn’t Shine

I have one great dress shirt: an oxford cloth blue button down Van Heusen which I’m pretty sure is a leftover from my 8th grade uniform (yes, I’m an ‘adult’ now).

It’s awesome because of a few factors:

Googling informs me that the reason why this shirt rocks and the shirts I’ve been trying to get to supplement it with shine and have no nice texture is because they’re ‘pinpoint or royal’ oxfords, with a much finer thread. That’s cool and all, but I’m not into shiny shirts and don’t need something that’s ‘business appropriate’ (programmer, dress down person).

Also: fitted is a plus, maybe a must. I’m tall and lanky (6′, 150ish).

Even the current Van Heusen bunch of shirts seem to be entirely pinpoint and whatnot.

Is there anywhere I can go to get oxford shirts, without branding or shine, and with the built to last / coolness of this one?

extra slim sounds like a good choice, as long as you DO NOT buy the non iron, which will be shiny because of the wrinkle resistant coating. $80 new, but if you’re patient you can probably find something on posted by joshuaconner at 7:31 PM on February 4, 2012 [1 favorite]

Seconding Brooks Brothers extra slim. Very high quality, and unlike their slim fit, will fit a man of your size. And yes, fitted is a must.

Thirding the Brooks Brothers slim or extra slim. You want the "supima" oxford, which is what they call the traditional oxford cloth non non iron shirt. I recommend these with the caveat that they only occasionally show up on eBay, though Brooks Brothers has fairly regular (semi annual, maybe) sales when oxfords are somewhere around $70 if you buy three of the same size/color which isn’t bad for a shirt that is, at least last time I checked, made in America. These shirts are intended to be tucked in and may have longer tails than you would prefer if you habitually wear your shirts untucked.

If you’re okay with clothing made overseas, I have a soft spot for Lands End’s Hyde Park oxford. It’s a slightly lighter fabric (though the weight seems to vary from batch to batch) which is nice in warm weather. It’s also a slightly lighter blue than the Brooks Brothers. I think their is the slim fit.

I hesitate to suggest them because they’re fashion expensive, but the "vintage" line oxfords made by Gitman Brothers are also very well made, very heavy, slim and made in America. They’re also (urrk) $165 and rarely dip below $90 used/on sale.

For the lower price spread, the Stafford shirts by J. C. Penney always rate well, for the price, from Consumer Reports and even Wall Street Journal. And me.

I have a French blue, standard Oxford shirt that I got from Land’s End over a decade ago, and I’ve had a couple Hyde Park ones (white, blue) that last a long time as well (I think the only one I’ve ever thrown out was because someone in my apartment complex left gum in the clothes dryer). When I used to have to wear them for work, I’d wear them once or twice a month, with a washing and ironing between every wear, so they’re damn near indestructable. They have tall sizes (which I get, since I’m 6’5"), but their size chart is pretty broad anyway. I haven’t tried the tailored fit version.

The Land’s End "tailored" fit might be a little roomy for you, but it’ll be a personal call. At 5’11 150 lbs about half of their tailored fits are right on and about half I return because they’re too generous in the arms. They sell many kinds of oxford cloth shirts, and I think the Hyde Park is the texture you want.

You can get free shipping virtually every day just by searching for Lands End coupon or discount, and if you have a local Sears you can return anything there with no shipping charges. I dig that bit because it lets me try out styles and such that I wouldn’t otherwise get to see (I live in a town that no longer has a proper men’s store).
