I’m gonna start doing these “Top 5” lists on the regular. They make me actually think about what I post and challenge me. So here it goes. The king of cloths, Oxford.
1) Biased Cut
I’ve been looking at these for a long time. I really like the fact that’s it’s customizable, but I don’t have to spend more than 10 minutes thinking about it, and especially like that I don’t have to fumble around with a measuring tape. I also like that if I want to fumble around with a measuring tape, I can.
I don’t have much to say about these, but I look at epauletshop.com a lot and that these shirts are just super hyped and look super crispy.
This is actually more of a “I wish it fit me” thing than a “want it in my closet” thing, cause I actually do own one of these. The extra-slim fit oxford is one of those shirts that if you fit into it, then you’ve found your shirt for life. I sadly am in the awkward range that makes it too short in Medium and too baggy in Large.
4) Mark McNairy
Like everyone on Tumblr, I am up on this McNairy kick. Especially his shoes. Damn, his shoes are fine. So, this had to make the list of Oxfords I want.
5) The ones in my head
There is no shirt more perfect than the ones that you imagine in your own mind. I think of a perfectly tailored shirt that never wrinkles, never gets dirty, and never stops lookin’ straight up crispy. I know this is quite impossible, but I do plan to start making my own clothes in the future.
