Blue and White Check Royal Oxford Fabric / Casual And Formal
A Shirt Fabric of Blue and White Check Royal oxford texture and a bit more pop than the one with a traditional broadcloth or a pinpoint. This fabric is woven by the famous Thomas Mason Mill in Italy with a 2-layer construction.
The open oxford fabric has a comfortable and breathable body, a clean curtain and a perfect weight for four-season wear.
Despite popular belief, the Oxford fabric is not from Oxford. But rather from a textile factory in Scotland in the latter part of the 19th century.
Apparently, in a clever marketing maneuver, the factory created four different fabrics named. After four of the most prestigious universities of the time – Yale, Cambridge, Harvard and Oxford.
Today, little is knows about what happen to the other three fabrics, but it is clearly the Oxford fabric that has prove to be the big winner.
Royal Oxford Fabric
Royal Oxford is a beautiful, flashy dress shirt fabric. It has an elaborate weave that gives it a distinctive, significant texture. It’s usually very shiny. Royal Oxford fabric is well known for its softness.
Something about the weave makes the yarns puff out a bit and it just feels cushy and nice. Don’t confuse Royal Oxford cloth with regular oxford cloth, or pinpoint oxford cloth. They are totally different.
Regular oxford cloth is a much heavier, rougher, and casual-looking fabric. Pinpoint is great for both everyday business and formal looks as well.
However, Royal Oxford, particularly in white is best suited for your most formal of occasions, either with a suit or tuxedo.
Because Blue and White Check Royal Oxford fabric is such a fancy looking fabric, we especially recommend it for french cuff dress shirts and wide spread collar dress shirts. Pair a nice fitted dress shirt with a dark navy suit and you’ll feel extra sharp.
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN POINTED AND OXFORD CLOTH
Pinpoint Oxford, commonly called simply “pinpoint” for short, is a very popular type of dress shirt fabric. It is elegant and durable.
It has a slightly matte and crisp finish, though not as silky and flat (thin) as a wide cloth, and it’s definitely not as shiny as Royal Oxford or twill. It works well on both formal and casual occasions.
A pointed dress shirt feels a little more substantial than a wide cloth dress shirt, as it is a little thicker and therefore less transparent. Pointed fabrics and Oxford fabrics weave the threads together in the same way.
The difference between the fabrics is not in the fabric, but in the thickness and weight of the threads that are used.
Pinpoint generally has a higher thread count and a thinner, lighter weave than Oxford Cloth. Therefore, accurate dress shirts are preferable to oxford cloth dress shirts in formal situations.
Pinpoint makes it a stylish wedding dress shirt or business interview dress shirt, while oxford fabric would be more suitable for casual or outdoor best marriage event. This is great shirt also below.
