A striped shirt is an easy way to upgrade an everyday outfit, ideal for when you want to add some extra polish to your look. Popularised by college students from the 1920s onwards, the Oxford shirt is a pillar of the preppy aesthetic. Our take on the Oxford shirt features a unique two-yarn basket-weave cloth, originally invented by a Scottish mill to be worn as a smart sportswear style, making it ultra versatile.
Team with our pleated trousers which showcase an on-trend loose-fit silhouette and have become a firm favourite of the menswear design team. Not only are they made with recycled cotton and trims, but they are dyed with pre-reduced indigo dye which uses less water than conventional indigo dye. Genius.
