With the official start of Autumn, WNU has bought you the perfect thick cotton shirt that as soon as you put on you will not want to take off: the Oxford.
Why do we love it so much? Well, not to be biassed but it’s because it is great.
It’s the way that the more you wash it the more it feels your own. And the nostalgic way it feels like it was your dads, oversized and comforting (borrowing from the boys as ever). The Oxford is like an old friend, an easy favourite, helping you smarten up last minute if needed, but will happily spend the day guilt free on the sofa too.
It’s the way it feels like a Sunday morning. Soft cotton pushed up to elbows, hands clutching morning papers, marmalade toast, eggs on toast, just-plain-butter-toast, and cups of tea galore; but how it also feels like a Thursday at 11am with the hem tucked into a belted trouser, a to-go coffee in hand, balancing an almond croissant and phone in the other, running to a meeting, flat viewing or just running late to meet a friend.
It's wonderfully British, the Oxford. Scottish to be exact. Perfect due to its versatility, this warm fabric is made from 100% organic cotton - it wouldn’t be WNU if it wasn’t sustainably sourced and ethically made!
Our collection comes in our Classic shape, which is easy to wear, throw on, tuck in (basically however you want to wear it) and we have opted for a delicate thin stripe, one block colour and a cool patchwork. These wardrobe staples are comfortable to wear, and no doubt will become one you grab for regularly through the transitional period.
So how do you wear the Oxford? We designed our Oxford shirt with the weekend in mind – but what’s the setting in yours? This shirt is beautifully versatile, suited to whatever occasion you choose, from work through to relaxing by the fire.
This shirt is beautifully versatile, suited to whatever occasion you choose, from work through to relaxing by the fire. Pair it with a straight leg trouser on casual Fridays, or when you’re out of the office, keep it untucked over denim jeans with a pair of loafers to run your errands with easily and stylishly. However, if your day is calling for reading a book on the sofa, pull your Oxford over some boxer shorts and cashmere socks and keep those sheepskin slippers on.
