THE TRANSEASONAL SHIRT
A must-have wardrobe staple, the classic Oxford shirt is a mainstay of any discerning on- or off-duty outfit, says M&S menswear editor William Oliver.
Made from traditional basketweave cotton with a button-down collar, the Oxford shirt is a truly transitional piece that works equally hard in summer as it does in winter. This Blue Harbour version features fantastic detailing, including a blue-and-black-striped ribbon sewn on the inside of the placket and a contrasting ribbon on the reverse of the cuffs. The placket ribbon – visible when the top button is undone or when the shirt is worn untucked – adds a smart, preppy edge. Great paired with casual chino shorts and deck shoes or formal trousers and a navy blazer, the multi-tasking Oxford shirt is the perfect go-to all year long.
