Oxford cloth.jpg

Oxford is a type of woven fabric, employed to make the fabric in oxford shirts. The warp has two fine yarns paired together. The weft has one heavier, softly spun fill yarn, which gives the fabric a very subtle basketweave look with a silk-like and lustrous finish[1] making it a popular fabric for a dress shirt.[2] Pinpoint Oxford is a similar fabric with a finer basketweave look, made with fine white threads mixed into the weave to give more contrast.[3] While both of these are casual weaves, most often paired with casual shirt designs like a button-down collar, the final type of Oxford cloth, royal Oxford, is a versatile weave paired with the smartest of lounge suits as well as sporty dress codes. Incorporating a heavy basketweave texture, with strong white overtones on a coloured background, it is a durable fabric, but relatively rarely used.
