OXXFORD IS THE STANDARD
Oxxford feels like no other because our garments are made like no other. Hand-stitched lapels and collars shape the cloth and inner linings together to create a graceful and elegant line. Hand basted shoulders and armholes, featuring a reverse chain stitch maintains the armscye rather than a binding tape which affords a softer feel and impeccable fit. All of these artisan methods contribute to the extraordinary suppleness and softness that you experience with Oxxford. Coupled with hand tailoring methods with the finest textiles, canvasses, shoulder pads, linings, silk thread, pocketing and more, results in a magnificent suit of clothes.
Designed for those who desire the highest level of quality and fit, Oxxford is the standard in custom apparel, delivering artisan products so perfect you will not turn back.
Oxxford Clothes was founded in 1916 by Louis and Jacob Weinberg. The brothers were committed to creating clothing of the highest possible standards of quality and styling. Hollywood glamour period of the 1930s and the style icons that emerged on the silver screen set the tone for Oxxford as the clothier for men of power, refined taste, and timeless elegance. In 1936 the tony retailer Bullocks Wilshire in Los Angeles signed an exclusive arrangement declaring that Oxxford would be the only clothing sold in their store.
Oxxford devotees like Cary Grant, Clark Gable, Gary Cooper, and Joe DiMaggio defined an era of grace, elegance, and class. Many years later they still stand as an inspiration to menswear clothing enthusiasts, tailors and men's fashion designers all over the world.
The foundation of an Oxxford suit is steeped in impeccable hand construction; rooted in tradition and design with world-class materials.
Each garment is individually cut by hand; plaids and stripes are matched at all seams, even those that aren’t exposed; all coat buttons are made of horn; buttonholes are hand-stitched.
Collars and lapels are hand-stitched with 2,950 stitches or more to ensure shape and balance. Of the 165 steps involved in producing a suit jacket, 33 involve pressing. After a suit is completed, the final pressing by hand takes over an hour.
Only natural fibers are used in the creation of our clothing. These fabrics are selected from the finest mills in Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom. Oxxford pieces can be found in specialty shops across the United States along with our showroom in Chicago and our flagship store in New York.
