The scary thing about the Oxxford is that it's NWT, so we can't pin it on the misguided primitivism of some past generation.

I'd wear the Ted Baker with jeans.

I'm convinced that Oxxford is an anti-video conference jacket. If you wear it, the camera will never be pointed at you due to the strobing it would cause.

What other explanation could there be?

This is the second Oxxford disaster to be posted in a week.

At least it also means that no one actually bought it at retail.

And we see why some clothes end up on ebay.


Oxxford does need critically to more thoroughly edit their fabric selection. This definitely harms the company unduly from a public relations and perception standpoint.

You really have to wonder how some of these things slip by.

I recommend a three-step process for weeding out the dogs:
1. Does it cause retina burn? If yes, reject. If no, proceed to step 2.
2. Does it frighten pets and small children? If yes, reject. If no, proceed to step 3.
3. Would Tyler Durden wear it? If yes, material is approved. If no, material is rejected permanently and irrevocably.

This latest one would not have passed the retina burn test.
