Best Oxford Shirts For Men

20 Best Men’s Oxford Shirts

Posted in GEAR GUIDES, STYLE By

The key to making shopping — and getting dressed — suck less? Curate a wardrobe filled with essential pieces that are fun to wear — and reach for them over and over again. From chukka boots to dark denim, classics that can be swapped in and out with ease through the work week and into the weekend are critical. Add to your lexicon the classic Oxford shirt.

Just as a rugged-refined chambray shirt can be year-round wardrobe staple, so too, can the classic Oxford. The classic Oxford can be styled up nearly any which way you please — even sans tie underneath a chino suit in the summer. And when you match it up with warm-weather classics like chino shorts and navy sneakers, you’ve got a combo that’s just as suited for a barbeque as it is for a patio dinner.

There aren’t too many shirts that can do that and still look sharp enough to function during your 9-to-5 — yet the styles here accomplish all of that and then some. Invest in one or invest in as many as you can — there’s no wrong pick when it comes to the best men’s Oxford shirts.

Taylor Stitch Everyday Oxford

Taylor Stitch Everyday Oxford

Although a bevy of brands are vying to make the one shirt you can wear everyday, Taylor Stitch might have just taken the cake here. The brand’s Everyday Oxford is handsome, smart and stylish, all in one classic package. It checks all the boxes that a great shirt should — It’s made from a substantial rugby Oxford and features a tailored fit, for starters. Plus, it’s the perfect length to be worn tucked or untucked, and would look dashing atop a pair of the brand’s premium Standard Issue Chinos — that’s quite possibly the best, most classic style combination on the market. – Buy It

Buck Mason White Perfect Oxford

Buck Mason White Perfect Oxford

Is it possible that one brand can do so many things so well? The answer is: Yes. Buck Mason can certainly lay stake to that claim, and its Perfect Oxford is one additional essential you need to consider adding to your wardrobe — if you don’t have one in your arsenal already. And when they say “Perfect” … it’s tough to argue with them. Made with plain-weave cotton and offered here in classic white, it’s the sort of easygoing shirt that looks great with jeans, olive chinos or grey dress trousers. – Buy It

Bonobos Jetsetter Dress Shirt

Bonobos Jetsetter Dress Shirt

Some companies approach getting dressed in a way that makes it easy. Bonobos, for instance, makes it very easy. From the brand’s slim chinos to its casual knitwear and particularly, the Jetsetter Dress Shirt. Available in a plethora of colors and patterns, it’s a classic addition to any man’s wardrobe. You’d do well to buy as many as you can at the premium-yet-accessible price of $128 — Bonobos puts quality and thought into its production, and that’s value you can appreciate. – Buy It

J.Crew Ludlow Oxford in Blue Stripe

J.Crew Ludlow Oxford in Blue Stripe

The brand that pioneered a new style of casual dressing for guys everywhere can still do all of the essentials quite well, and that should come as no surprise to those who’ve loved the brand’s shirts for years. Just like its lauded Ludlow Suit, the Ludlow Oxford — particularly in a preppy-yet-cool blue strip — is a modern classic that guys everywhere need to wear more often. Take this shirt, pair it with chinos and classic canvas sneakers and call it a day — a day of stylish adventures, that is. – Buy It

Mott & Bow Kent Oxford

Mott & Bow Kent Oxford

Mott & Bow is flipping the classic shirting game on its head once again with its introduction of the Kent Oxford, a piece you seriously need to consider adding to your wardrobe as soon as you can. Made with premium Albiate Italian cotton and available in colors ranging from Navy to crisp White and a clean Black, these Oxfords blend a modern fit and great style with the ease of wearability that you simply need all year long. And the price? You’re getting it for under $90 — a positive steal for the quality. – Buy It

Everlane Slim Fit Oxford

Everlane Slim Fit Oxford

Everlane has blazed its own trail when it comes to fostering transparency in the fashion industry. It’s a policy that few can claim to match (if any), and it makes the design work done by the brand all the more important. Along with being “radically transparent,” Everlane can also make a heck of a lot of modern men’s style staples. The brand earns serious style points for its Slim Fit Oxford, offered in a range of neutral and easily wearable solids and some sharp striped iterations for a fair price. – Buy It

Relwen Summer Seersucker Shirt

Relwen Summer Seersucker Shirt

With a dash of rumpled, rugged edge, the Relwen Summer Seersucker Shirt is an alternative, and no less handsome or essential, pick in comparison to your classic white or blue Oxford shirt. Seersucker is an incredibly lightweight, breezy and casual fabric that offers some respite from the heat in the dog days of summer, and it looks all the better when combined with a neat grid check pattern. Wear it tucked or untucked thanks to the tapered fit, and feel just as great as you look. – Buy It

Grayers Jaspe Double Cloth Shirt

Grayers Jaspe Double Cloth Shirt

Grayers specializes in prep classics done the modern way — the brand’s Jaspe Double Cloth Shirt walks that delicate line quite nicely. In an easy-to-wear shade of blue, the Jaspe Double Cloth makes use of custom-woven fabric and a reliable fit. It’s the kind of shirt to wear with slim khakis and white leather sneakers any day of the week — and it’s also the type of shirt to slide on under a classic navy blazer with dark denim for a go-anywhere outfit. The intangibles are covered here with this one. – Buy It

Faherty Ventura Trim Fit Oxford

Faherty Ventura Trim Fit Oxford

Faherty excels at taking your favorite everyday staples — the classic, trusty Oxford shirt among them — and using sun-fading and washing techniques to make them feel lived-in and perfectly worn-in. The results of that process are neat pieces like the Ventura Trim-Fit Oxford Shirt, made with essential Oxford details like a chest pocket and button down collar. It’s a breezy summer piece that you can take into the fall when layered under an army green field jacket — and we’d certainly recommend you find as many ways to wear it as you can. – Buy It

Apolis Japanese Striped Broadcloth Button Down

Apolis Japanese Striped Broadcloth Button Down

Since Apolis started in 2004, the brand has focused on sustainable, classic basics made with responsibility. It’s an approach that’s won them plenty of happy customers. And if all of that sounds too good to be true, rest assured that the brand can certainly back it up — pieces like its Japanese Striped Broadcloth Buttondown are a perfect example. The Broadcloth Buttondown punches up what you’d normally expect from an Oxford, with style that’s wearable solo or with one of the brand’s famed chore coat. – Buy It

Ralph Lauren Easy Fit Oxford Shirt

Ralph Lauren Easy Fit Oxford Shirt

Turn to a master of American prep for a classic style that fits right into this country’s lexicon of style. The Easy Fit Cotton Oxford Shirt is just that — an easygoing, easy-to-wear shirt that makes it easy to look great. Available in three classic and distinctly preppy colors, this shirt features a roomier fit — perfect for wearing over a striped tee or a classic henley on breezy summer evenings. You get classic summer (or fall, or winter) style and classic looks — just what Ralph Lauren wants. – Buy It

Bonobos Oxford Button-Down

Bonobos Oxford Button-Down

When you’ve got a great pair of chinos on lock — possibly from Bonobos — what’s the perfect complement to those stylish trousers? Easy. A crisp, classic and casual Bonobos Oxford. It’s one of the many style staples the brand does well, and this shirt, although simple-looking, is designed to compete with the best Oxford shirts on the market. In this instance, that means it can pair reliably everything from dark denim and a Harrington jacket to crisp wingtips and a classic navy blazer. That also means that it’s cut to be worn tucked or untucked, on the weekend or during the workweek. – Buy It

Apolis Oxford Button Down

Apolis Oxford Button Down

If you prefer your Oxfords be made sustainably in addition to stylishly, Apolis is the place to go. Just like Todd Snyder or Frank & Oak, the brand crafts essentials for the modern man, and they do so with attention to detail that any discerning guy can appreciate. Using a unique Brazilian Oxford cloth, they work with a Honduran tailoring cooperative that’s nearly a century old — they certainly know what they’re doing when it comes to men’s shirting. This shirt is even finished with Indonesian Trocas Shell buttons — that’s what you call premium, stylish and sustainable, all at once. – $124

Buck Mason Smoke Pinpoint Oxford

Buck Mason Smoke Pinpoint Oxford

When Buck Mason takes the same quality and attention to detail that made its tees much-coveted, and transitions that approach to shirting, it’s worth paying attention. Playing off its Perfect Oxford (basically a must-have for the refined guy), the Pinpoint Oxford makes use of a 3.5oz. plain-weave cotton that features a more crisp look than traditional Oxford cloth. Pair that quality fabric and a tailored fit with made-in-America construction, and you’re all set for a shirt that can pair handsomely with everything from slim black denim to your best navy blazer. You might have a hard time wearing any other shirt in your closet, come to think of it. – $108

JACHS NY Blue Washed Oxford

JACHS NY Blue Washed Oxford

You can add another reliably updated style staple to your wardrobe from JACHS NY — and you should do it as soon as possible, particularly for under $70. Shirts from JACHS NY have a tailored but classic fit, perfect for rocking during the work week and then right on into your weekend. The imported cotton should be very high-quality, like other pieces from JACHS. And at that price, you’re getting a very solid deal considering that this is a true four-season shirt — you should pair it up with a white cable-knit sweater in the fall, and you should roll up your sleeves and get to work wearing one now. – $69

JackThreads The Oxford Shirt

JackThreads The Oxford Shirt

There’s something to be said for a classic, crisp white or blue Oxford, but with 21st century dressing calling for versatile style throughout the whole week, a navy Oxford is a great way to mix up your daily shirt rotation. And when you can get one for a steal of a price, you should definitely jump on it — and maybe grab a couple extra for good measure. This particular shirt is cut to be worn with a knit tie or on its own, with slim black denim and chukka boots or with a sharp grey blazer during the warmer (or colder) months. Not bad for under $40. – $39

Todd Snyder Japanese Selvedge Oxford Shirt in Blue

Todd Snyder Japanese Selvedge Oxford Shirt in Blue

Quick, think of a designer who makes clothing that’s relatable yet heritage-inspired, classic yet modern? Todd Snyder is who should come to mind — from the brand’s much-coveted crewneck sweaters to his enviable line of tailoring, it’s classic American sportswear done up with a modern edge — this Oxford shirt is just the start. Few Oxfords are made from the best Japanese selvedge cotton on the market, so getting your hands on this one is going to cost you — and yet, it might be the last Oxford you ever buy. Given its durability, you just might want to wear it with everything else in your closet. – Buy It

Bourbon and Blue Collins Shirt

Bourbon and Blue Collins Shirt

Whereas some Oxford shirts stick with either white, blue or somewhere in between, the Bourbon and Blue Collins Shirt plays off classic prep influences. The resulting shirt is a piece both fit for dockside strolls and dinner in the city, with a crisp combination of white and blue stripes, plus a slim fit. It’s a shirt that would rest nicely atop slim grey chinos and brown leather boat shoes, or add some rakish appeal to a khaki chino suit and leather loafers this summer. And the fact that it’s breezy and casual enough to go with chambray shorts and white sneakers is an added bonus. – $79

Todd Snyder Italian Oxford Patch-Pocket Shirt in Blue

Todd Snyder Italian Oxford Patch-Pocket Shirt in Blue

While Todd Snyder made an appearance earlier on this list, it makes total sense that the brand would pop up again. Although the Oxford shirt is a decidedly American style staple, it’s done here in premium Italian cotton that gives it a luxurious edge, unlike other, more casual Oxford shirts. The brand says this shirt merges a soft fabric with a tailored look, not unlike what you might find in your best dress shirt. The chest pocket and button-down collar are classic Oxford touches, but that continental styling potential means you should rock it with a khaki blazer just as often as you rock it on its own. – Buy It

Frank & Oak Grey Oxford Shirt

Frank & Oak Grey Oxford Shirt

On the surface, this might look like your average Oxford shirt — it’s got more going for it than that, though. Woven from breathable, lightweight 100 percent cotton with a minimal design aesthetic, this Frank & Oak shirt has small flecks, or neps, woven into the fabric. Even when worn on its own, those subtle style differences provide just enough visual interest. And particularly when you pair this shirt up with four-season essentials like inky blue selvedge denim and brown leather wingtips, those subtle style differences are going to set it apart from other shirting options in your wardrobe. – $68
