Ralph Lauren: the man who reinvented the shirt

The classic Oxford shirt is now knitted

The knitted shirt practically comes as standard for any man’s wardrobe. But Ralph Lauren has launched a brand new version. The American designer has decided to reinterpret the most classic of fabrics, Oxford cotton, adding a touch of versatility and elegance to the causal style of the polo shirt.

He has combined the appeal of the Oxford shirt with the comfort of a polo, bringing a tailored approach to this shirt, complete with a button-down collar, mother-of-pearl buttons and a multi-coloured embroidered logo.

The name “Oxford” comes from the English city where this natté weave fabric was developed, featuring a warp and weft made from two interwoven threads. Its special feature? The coloured warp thread and the white weft thread enhance the weave and create a miniature cross-hatched effect.
