A variant of the basketweave pattern, with three-ply twisted weft (80/2). Often used in men's shirting, typically combined with a button down collar, which became a distinctly American look that was an outgrowth of Europe's more fickle attitude about fashion. Came to prominence during the 1950’s via America’s growing confidence about it’s stature in the world and an updated nonchalant attitude about approachability and leisureliness in the work place. Oftentimes the Oxford weaves uses two yarns which are of two slightly different color tones giving the fabric (visually) a subtle textured effect. The open basketweave makes it a very breathable fabric which is comfortable in both the summer and winter months. For further information on the history of Oxford cloth shirts click here.
