    The easiest thing to do would be to email the seller and ask if there's a date of production on the inside tag.

    No idea, but it doesn't look dated, if that's what you're wondering.

    Thanks for the feedback...I had e-mailed them, but because I had just discovered it an hour or so ago, I haven't heard back. Thought I would try the forum. I, too, thought it didn't look too dated. Thanks again.

    No problem. One thing about Oxxford that's nice if that's your style is that they are pretty unswayed by fashion. Their gorge and button stance seem to have moved a bit over time, but it's not really noticeable, at least to the untrained observer. Plus the excellent roll on the lapel partially negates the button stance problem anyway.

    I think the older two-button models have the lower button on a parallel line that intersects with the middle of the jacket's side pocket flaps. Newer ones seem to have the lower button at the top or just above the pocket flap.
