|This staple piece is an absolute must for every man's wardrobe. Made by our partner factory in Portugal, this piece embodies the meticulous quality and sharp design that Epaulet is famous for, whilst maintaining a very fair retail price. Our goal was to make a great piece that delivers more "bang for the buck" than anything else out there. Affordable oxford shirts are too often made with sub-par fabrics and flimsy collars. We endeavored to offer a shirt that sells for under $100 without any compromises. This particular color is a perfect basic light blue.
The mid-weight fabric hails from Portugal's esteemed Somelos mill. It's very comfortable and fully wearable throughout all four seasons. Each finished piece is run through a "salt wash" to eliminate shrinkage and soften the fibers without chemically degrading them. The shirt has a lightly broken in feel without any significant distressing.
Our fit is the classic Epaulet shape and fit: trim body, athletic cut, & darted lower back. The mid-length tail allows you to wear the shirt tucked or untucked. The buttondown collar has a full "ivy league" roll and a commanding high collar stance. Un-breakable resin buttons finish it all off.
Worn casually or dressed up & pressed, this will surely be one of your most versatile pieces. These shirts run true to size with our overall collection.
All measurements are shown in inches. "Chest" is measured from one seam at the armpit to the other. "Shoulder" is measured from one shoulder seam to the other. "Sleeve" is measured from the shoulder seam to the cuff. "Length" is measured from the base of the collar (where it attaches to the shirt) to the bottom of the tail.
Each shirt is crafted at one of the oldest and most skilled shirtmakers in Portugal. The Somelos fabric is a bit lighter than the typical American or English oxford cloth - offering more wearability during the warmer months, but not sacrificing overall durability.
This is it my friends! The perfect business-casual oxford shirt - made with our signature fit and the famous bold Epaulet buttondown collar. Give it a shot - I'm confident that you're going to be delighted with this in person!
