    Out of curiosity, why do you love these Oxfords so much? Do you work in an office setting? Basically, should I be buying these shirts too? Haha.

    Great collar and fit me great off the rack. Great US conversion rate. That's pretty much the gist.

    Here are my thoughts on them, speaking only of the oxford fabric Rick developed, and the design changes to the collar etc. Right now that would be the white, blue, ocean blue, and burgundy (most of the new fabrics are in the custom section for the upcoming drop)

    I have owned oxfords across many brands, nothing crazy high end like Eton to compare to but stuff from Bonobos, J Crew, Brooks Brothers as well as a few others. I work in a business casual/ casual office so pretty much reach for oxfords/trousers, oxfords/chinos, oxford/jeans around 90% of the time.

    The material is fantastic, it's a really great 3 season weight for me. Just stiff enough when you first get them to know that they are going to soften up amazingly over time but not too stiff it's annoying to wear before they break in. Overall construction of the shirts, like all of the SM shirts, is top notch. I like that the oxford line still has the lower button stance (pretty sure this is still the case with the incoming ones). Collars have that old school BB vibe with an amazing collar roll. The fit for me is pretty close to ideal in a 15.5 Contemp, I like my oxfords to fit with a bit more room as I like to wear them both tucked or untucked. If I were to go MTM I would take in the armhole a hair, lengthen the sleeve by .5, and maybe take in the waist .5". All very minor so I stick with OTR.

    Unbeatable value all around for the $50 CAD or so per shirt, if Rick keeps making different oxfords I will have zero reason to be swayed to another brand for them and will likely buy almost anything that comes around. So yeah buy some for sure, as long as you aren't my size or faster than me hahaha.

    When I spoke to Rick, he said going forward the button down shirts will not have a center pleat. I"ll wait until that release. I really dislike the center pleat.

    I blame it on my colleague who is older and has never seen the inside of a gym. Basically muffin top

    No pleat fits more clean for sure, I have really liked that on the recent linen shirts and hope the upcoming denim shirts are also no pleat. For oxfords I do enjoy the pleat but I am sure I will love them without as well moving forward after this drop.

    Especially since they have that luscious back pleat.

    Oh damn, was also excited for lavender and pink but I guess that's on the way with the burgundy uni stripe? Will wait for the grey and white to add to my order.

    Is the white different in any way to the ones already up or just a restock?

    The lavender and pink solid are coming later. They will be here before the Burgundy Uni. There is also a new light blue shade on the way.

    The white is the same. Just a restock.
