The PS Yellow Oxford - shirt
A traditional oxford shirt, robust and casual, with a natural, slubby variation in the texture. Wears in beautifully; lasts forever.
Says Simon: ”I’ve always found that an oxford shirt fills a very specific gap in my wardrobe. Smart enough for almost any sports jacket - from cashmere to corduroy - it is also the perfect partner for jeans. It might bridge formal and casual perhaps better than any other shirting”
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.
This pale yellow version of the popular PS Oxford is a classic American colour, and compliments both grey and navy, as well as pale green and all denims. Read more styling advice on the launch post here.
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.
What our customers say "Just took delivery of this – thanks Simon, really happy with the fit and with the colour. Yellow is my favourite colour, but i always struggle to find yellow fabrics that look good. this piece is perfect – and will get a lot of wear now my more formal shirts are taking a time-out."
