Like blazers, Oxford shirts are some of the world’s original sportswear, representing the evolution of collared tops from the football pitch to the rugby pitch to the polo field: because their collars would flap while riding, polo players needed to button them down. Contrary to popular belief, Oxford shirts aren’t named for the English city, but for the unique, thick woven fabric from which they’re made — which originated in Scottish fabric mills. Ours are the most perfect Oxford shirts you’ll ever find: handmade in Europe from the finest materials.
Ash Wall, Brooks Brothers' VP in the 70s, walked into a factory one day and picked up a "training shirt”: a shirt made by factory trainees using mismatched scraps of fabric. Wall reportedly tried one on and commented: "These are some fun shirts." Today, you can scour eBay, Etsy, or one of the many vintage stores in New York City for the Fun Shirt in its original, iconic colorway, and if you're very, very lucky, you might find one eventually. We're obsessed with the Fun Shirt — and with this colorway in particular — and because it hasn't been made in decades, we decided to make our own.
