There’s no doubt about it, the Lacoste Regular Fit Oxford Shirt is one of man’s most wearable wardrobe pieces. Originally a luxury design worn by polo players and their spectators, the classic Oxford shirt is now so versatile you can wear it at almost every occasion.

What exactly is an Oxford Shirt?

Distinguishable by its basket-weave pattern, which gives it a slightly different texture to your average dress shirt, an Oxford shirt typically has a button-down collar and is cut to fit a regular silhouette – not too tight but not loose either.

Once you find the perfect fit, buy it in every colour. Lacoste’s Regular Fit Oxford Shirt is available in classic white, navy blue, and pine lagoon.

How do you wear an Oxford Shirt?

Minimal detailing means you can wear this style any and every way possible. Here are our favourite ways to get the most out of one design.

1. Keep it Professional

Classic white is the smartest choice for the work environment. Keep your buttons done up – from the collar to the cuffs – and tuck the shirt hem neatly into a pair of slim-fitting trousers. Add a tailored jacket to tie in your look and finish with a pair of polished loafers.

2. Roll the Cuffs

By neatly folding your cuffs and loosening your collar you can go from professional to party – just style with dark denim jeans or your go-to chinos and a fresh pair of lace-up Lacoste sneakers.

3. Add a Sweater

Ideal for laid-back offices and smart-casual events, layering knitwear over your Oxford shirt will add to its preppy appeal. Keep everything buttoned for a polished look or loosen the collar and roll the cuffs for something more relaxed.

4. Double the Fun

Wearing two Oxford shirts together will add depth and dimension to your outfit. Keep the base layer buttoned and layer the second shirt open over the top or have them both neatly done up to reveal hints of contrasting colours at the collar and cuffs.

5. All for the Weekend

When you’re off-duty, wear your Oxford shirt over a cotton tee with chino shorts and your favourite pair of pool slides. Keep only the collar fastened and have the front open like a lightweight jacket.
