Oxford Shirts

Recommended Posts

Looking for a nice and simple oxford shirt? Any ideas? I tried the Naked and Famous ones but they didn't fit right and I am in Canada and don't want to spend an arm and a leg shipping a JCrew over here without trying it on.

I'm not 100% on this, but I remember people saying uniqlo's shirts fit very similar to BoO, with shorter sleeves? If anyone can confirm, I'd say go try on a BoO, and then go from there. They're already pretty damned short in the torso though. Geller oxfords are a different fit; longer so they can be tucked in, and more flattering to a larger variety of body types. Our Legacy has some good ones as well, or stick with simple APC even...

I mention all these because if you're in Toronto you should just hit J+O this weekend and see if they've got anything for cheap you like. Don't be so fucking lazy, man.

UNIQLO is very hard to beat for the price. if it had longer and slimmer arms, it would be unbeatable.

BoO is the best fitting oxford i've ever dealt with.

Geller i find are much too long. and i dont really wanna tuck in my oxfords.

can you shed some light on the uniqlo quality?

and from what I heard, they aren't very slim? (not including the collabs/+J)

I own a couple uniqlo oxfords and it seems like the arms fit perfectly but the chest area is just a bit too baggy.

I am okay with a little baggy because I am a big guy. Unfortunately Uniqlo doesn't ship to Canada or so I have heard. I was leaning towards APC and definitely hitting up Jonathan and Olivia in a about and hour. If not over to Holts to see what they have in APC.

uniqlo's ocbd also seem to run a little long. i may just be saying that b/c i'm short though.

:D

you can find some nice vintage ones on ebay though every once in awhile.

i'm not super tall and i definitely dont find this to be the case.

my problem with the uniqlo oxfords is the arms are very wide and short, while the body is very fitted. makes for a terrible silhouette.

RRL oxfords are very good too - although dunno if there's any stockists in Toronto.

Your question really seems to be "what is the best oxford available in Toronto." If you haven't been able to find anything you like in H&M or the like, then you're stuck going up in price range and checking out APC, BoO, or Gitman, all of which are pretty available in TO. Lately, I've been into the Our Legacy shirts at J&O, so if you are resigned to spending the money take a look at those as well.

I own 5 BoO shirts. They are the best shirts for TUCKING OUT. The cut is excellent but the overall quality isn't all that great. The stitching for the buttons are weak as hell and I basically re-did all the buttons myself.

Uniqlo shirts sized down fit pretty well. They are good for the business casual look because they are way too long and meant to be worn tucked IN.

No idea on gitman brothers. Never handled it. The styles look pretty shitty and non steezy...

Thom Brown shirts are great but they are meant to be worn tucked IN.

maybe you got the wrong size in the naked and famous shirts. they are a pretty good fit when sized right.

the shortness of the sides makes BoO look pretty awkward on most people. makes em look like they have really wide hips. some people look okay though.

lay a naked and famous shirt over top of a BoO shirt. Fabric is better thicker and stiffer than BoO though so they need some softening up.

EDIT: what i meant is that (according to sydney, a shopowner in toronto) naked and famous have the same measurements as BoO. the fabric is stiffer so they seem to fit a little differently but that will go away with a wear and wash.

Just nabbed a couple of Gitman Vintage s/s 2010 from winn perry. Blue and a white one. I can't remember the last time I wore a white shirt. I wanted the red but they had already sold out of my size. Hopefully Roden Gray in Van can get me a red one when they get their shipment.

uniqlo's current oxfords are slimmer. the sleeves aren't wide. the body is slender. they're not long and great untucked. my RL oxfords are way longer. in fact I measured my size S uniqlo and the #'s are basically identical to the ToJ size S.

personally i don't like the shortness of BoO.

the uniqlo is only 19.50. it's a steal and a nice casual beater.

so when it comes down to it, what's the best bang for buck oxford that'll be left untucked?

You really can't beat the price of Uniqlo... basically $20-$30. At the same time, you must realize you're not paying for quality.

I don't know what everyone is talking about when they say Uniqlo oxfords must be tucked in because they're too long. I bought 4 different shirts last week and every one of them looks great untucked. I'm not super tall, only 6 ft. And as far as the fit in the chest/body area, it was not baggy at all on me... definitely a great casual fit.

If you wanna step up quality a little more, I've had some great casual oxfords from Gap and J Crew in the past.
