OUR START

Oxxford Clothes was founded in Chicago in 1916 by Louis & Jacob Weinberg, brothers dedicated to old-world craftsmanship in the fabrication of finely tailored apparel. For over 100 years, we have seen vast changes in materials, technology, design, and machinery.  What has maintained the course of time includes our dedication to talented artisans, quality in workmanship, the process of the hand-stitched garment, and using the finest materials from around the world.

We are still the preeminent manufacturer of the highest handmade clothing produced in America. There is no one else like us and we are proud to serve our clientele including the most successful businessmen in the world, the executive class who exceed all, our politicians who change our country, and, celebrities who know the difference in quality garments.

Our garments are classic pieces in time,

coupled with our styling expertise

The Making

The foundation of an Oxxford suit is rooted in impeccable construction created in Chicago USA. Each suit 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.

 

Our Dedication

We are a company steeped in tradition and pride ourselves in being an American treasure. With reverent attention to detail, Oxxford takes no shortcuts. Our workmanship elevates a craft into art by putting dozens of hours into each custom garment. From cutting the pattern to each stitch that is used, we still employ the same techniques tailors have used for generations. When there’s a better way to make a suit, we will change. Until then, we will remain faithful to the quality that only a hand-tailored, Oxxford suit can deliver.
