PS Striped Oxford - shirt
The same beautiful, traditional shirt as the light-blue PS Oxford, but in a blue and cream stripe.
A traditional oxford shirt, robust and casual, with a natural, slubby variation in the texture. Wears in beautifully; lasts forever.
The striped version here is also different to most striped oxfords in being a blue/cream stripe, rather than blue/white.
Says Simon: "The difference is very subtle, but using this warm, creamy colour rather than a cold white does have a distinct effect. A shirt made up in the fabric looks more casual, perhaps a little vintage."

Inspired by the vintage oxfords made by Brooks Brothers and others in the 1950s and 1960s, the PS Oxford shirt uses a fabric woven in Italy exclusively for Permanent Style.
This fabric combines robust, traditional yarn with finer cottons in the warp to create something that could be seen as the best of both worlds: rugged yet luxurious.
The shirts are made in a Naples atelier supervised by bespoke shirtmaker Luca Avitabile, and are beautifully handcrafted - with hand-sewn collars and armholes, as well as buttons and buttonholes. The shirt is cut to a moderately slim fit.
The shirt collar has been developed by Simon through his bespoke shirts, with the result being the perfect shape to curl outwards, framing the face, when unbuttoned, and to sit around the knot of a tie when fastened. Simon is wearing a medium.
More details on the website here. Fabric is pre-washed but there may be some shrinkage - around 1-2cm on the sleeve length and 2-3cm on the body length. The oxford shirts are cut slightly larger to accommodate this.
