Steel blue classic fit button collar dress oxford-cotton shirt
The Oxford Shirt is named after the specific weave of the fabric called, you guessed it, Oxford cloth. It has a basketweave structure and a lustrous aspect making it a soft and comfortable fabric for a dress shirt.
Due to the heavier fabric and weave, this shirt is very resilient and durable, as opposed to non-weaved fabrics like silk or silk blends. We have got clients who’ve been wearing their Oxford shirts for over 5 years and they look good as new.
The chest and body is slim, the tail of the shirt hits at the right point, and the sleeves are the perfect length. It's clear that a lot of thought went into the making of this shirt.
Like some other menswear traditions still around today, such as hacking pockets or single-vented jackets, the button down collar was invented for a man on a horse. Specifically, it was Ivy League polo players who wanted to keep their shirt collars out of their face.While bouncing on a horse, it was easy for the shirt collar points to flap up so polo players took to wearing shirts whose collar points buttoned down to the shirt front.
Because of its origin in sports, the button down is the least dressy shirt collar. But there's nothing quite like a well-worn oxford. Not only is it comfortable, it's the perfect way to nail the gentleman look.
The men’s button down collar deserves a place in every man’s closet. Match it with a pair of loafers and chinos, and you have a classy casual look.
More than a brand, Misericordia is primarily a project to conduct local and social work in Peru.
It was after a trip to Peru in 2003, Aurelyen decided to start this adventure that today employs people from different backgrounds from the region of Lima.
Born in Seine-Saint-Denis, from an early age his world leads to an interest in art. A real way of communication for him, Aurelyen enters the Fine Arts College where he perfected his artistic sense before traveling around the world. His various travels leads him to Peru, where he created his brand and lives now.
Today, Misericordia is for him a platform to impose new values related to the act of modern consumption and give rise to the term consum-actors.
In the slums of Lima, Peru's capital, Aurelyen encounter a small team of seamstresses with whom he makes a bet: to built a local project that combines artistic creation and social commitment. The first collection Misericordia will be presented in 2003 at the Salon Tranoï, where she will have great success before being distributed in stores like Colette - Paris and open his own shop at 9 rue de Charonne 75011 Paris.
