Oxxford: masculine
elegance from
across the pond

Hugo JACOMET

 

Gentlemen,

Today, let us turn the spotlight on the very excellent manufacturer Oxxford (which, contrary to what its name might suggest, was established in Chicago) who we believe most likely represents the best in classical masculine elegance from across the Atlantic.

This article is also an opportunity to mention that in the last few years, the United States have been surprising many of those who believed that elegance had vanished outside of the England-Italy-France trifecta. Indeed, Paul Stuart’s affordable ready-to-wear (particularly the Phineas Cole collection), Ralph Lauren’s (very) high end ready-to-wear Purple Label and, more recently, Manolo Costa’s bespoke have all been proving the naysayers wrong with their high quality lines.

But let’s get back to Oxxford.

Established in 1916 by the Weinberg brothers, this honorable institution of American elegance continues to leave its mark away from the trends while resisting the sirens of globalization. For almost one hundred years, it has been making garments of great quality, made exclusively by hand in its historic manufacture in Chicago.

Again this year, Oxxford offers a very classy Fall/Winter collection with quality fabrics and immaculate lines. Here are a few examples.

A wonderful label.

Cheers, HUGO
