The Affordable Oxford

The oxford shirt has become such a ubiquitous menswear staple because it looks good on anyone. Which is why most guys already have a few. But it can be tricky to find a balance of fit, quality and price. While there's nothing wrong with paying for bells and whistles like mother-of-pearl buttons and gussets, more often than not, you just need something that isn't too fussy and fits great. We can see why Nick Wooster heartily endorses these shirts from the in-house jcp line. Made from 100% cotton in a beefy fabric that only looks better after a few wears, stocking up on a couple for the season is easier than ever since they're less than $30 each. Available in faded solids and easy-wearing bengal stripes, the hard part will be deciding which ones you want in your closet.
