PS Pink Oxford - cloth
A traditional oxford fabric, robust and casual, with a natural, nubby variation in the texture. Wears in beautifully; lasts forever.
Inspired by the vintage oxfords used by Brooks Brothers and others in the 1950s and 1960s, this cloth is woven in Italy exclusively for Permanent Style.
The pale-pink version is the latest in the PS oxford series, and goes particularly well with navy, greys and greens - as well as denim.
For bespoke shirts, most oxfords on offer are smooth and fine, aimed at a business customer to wear with a worsted suit or jacket - which makes it hard to find something traditional to make up bespoke.
The PS Oxford fabric fills that gap, and is available in 2-metre cut lengths.
Says Simon: "I’ve always found that an oxford shirt has a very specific place in my wardrobe. Smart enough for almost any sports jacket - from cashmere to corduroy - it is also the perfect partner for jeans. It bridges formal and casual perhaps better than any other shirt fabric."
