Oxford is a type of woven dress shirt fabric, employed to make a particular casual-to-formal cloth in Oxford shirts.

Structure[edit]

The Oxford weave has a basketweave structure and a lustrous aspect[1] making it a popular fabric for a dress shirt.[2]

Varieties[edit]

Varieties in the cloth are the plain Oxford, the Pinpoint Oxford and the more formal Royal Oxford. While these first two are more often paired with casual shirt designs like a button-down collar, the third type of Oxford cloth, "Royal Oxford", is a more versatile weave that can be paired with either business or sporty dress codes.[citation needed]
