    Anybody know of any somewhat slim white, blue, yellow, etc. short sleeve oxford shirts? Something under $50 would be ideal...



    EDIT: I probably should post this in the ultimate noob thread.

    I really like this one by Aertex

    It's a navy oxford s/s with all the right details

    fit is def slim. I have this shirt in a size Med, I wear Med BoO for reference. The size list says Med is 38/40 but I dont think a person with a size 40 chest will fit into a Med very well.

    Damn, that looks nice but it says "slightly heavier weight" and I'm looking for something to wear during the summer.

    they mean it's heavier weight than their normal cotton shirts

    I have this shirt and it's not heavy. just heavier than a really lightweight hard finish cotton. by nature oxford cloth is "heavier"

    out of the price point OP wants, but I just recently picked up a s/s Paul Smith cotton shirt that is like an oxford weave but it's SUPER lightweight, seriously this fucking shirt is the MOST comfortable buttondown shirt I've ever put on. It's a pale blue with buttondown collars and hidden front button placket. Cost $165 and will be worth every penny come May-October

    I like that jump the gun button down a lot. Looks like it fits good and has some personality. How much to ship to US? the site crashed on me when I try to.

    and yea it fits great and the navy is a good color, sort of a grey-cast navy. it doesnt scream blue

    It fits the bill but I'm looking for the classic oxford colors like white, light blue, light pink etc.

    Get Smart, just for reference, what is your height/weight?

    Also, I see that they sell Harringtons in a wide range of nice colors at a good price. Does anyone know how the quality/fit of those?

    Let's go KWxTaT... can't we get some of these rolling for summer? I want some slim fit OCBDs too. Maybe I'll call up Ricky and have him get some started for 2019.
