Strange Oxford Shirt.

A customer just came into the shop to buy a few cigars, wearing a very odd shirt. It was a blue oxford shirt with the buttons hidden behind the placket, two breast pockets, and a very short, non-button-down collar, barely extending past the band.

Anyone familiar with this type of shirt?

The way I am picturing it, it sounds like some sort of cabana shirt, but with long sleeves (I assume). Was it tucked in, or could you tell if it was squared off at the bottom? Was it baggy, or fitted in the body?

It was not fitted, a trim cut would not be flattering. The individual in question was not well dressed at all; but the unusual nature of the shirt piqued my curiosity. Being oxford cloth, I doubt it would be a cabana or other tropically themed shirt.

It seems designers do funny things with oxford cloth to play against the OCBD connotations. A while back I ran across a blue oxford cloth shirt cut Western style, complete with white snap buttons.

If he was not well dressed overall, then the shirt in question is probably just some shit he picked up.
