Royal Oxford

Royal Oxford

A Scottish fabric mill began making Oxford cloth in the 19th century. It was one of four shirt fabrics named after famous universities; the others were Cambridge, Harvard and Yale. An Oxford fabric is a basket weave where the warp threads are often colored and the weft threads are white. Royal Oxford incorporates a heavy basket weave texture, with strong white overtones on a coloured background. Pinpoint Oxford is a similar fabric with a finer basket weave appearance. Both are durable fabrics and are typically styled as button down shirts.
