Inspired by Flap Pocket Oxfords of the late 1950's and made exclusively for Independence by Gitman Vintage Bros.
Here at Independence, we're constantly in discussion about the perfect Oxford shirt: who makes it, do they still make it, vintage vs. new, etc. What our staff is truly enamored with, is the unmatched attention to detail and craftsmanship associated with Ivy Style greats such as Brooks Brothers and J.Press. But it's the Flap Pocket Oxfords we love most—a pattern all but forgotten by the big guys. So we called up our good friends at Gitman and re-developed the Oxford time forgot.
This Oxford shirt is made from 100% cotton Cambridge Oxford, a durable cloth that softens when washed but remains virtually indestructible. This fabric was used for the first stock shirt made in 1978 and it's the very same cloth that they used for us today. We elected for a classic tailored fit that looks as good on the beach as it does in the office - resulting in the kind of shirt you never want to take off. Luckily, with this kind of versatility, you won't ever have to. Complete with our custom button-down chest pocket and button-down collar, we're proud to call this Oxford "perfect."
