Designer shirts are nice and, yes, a couple of custom-made shirts are a must in a gentleman’s closet. But there’s always a place for a soft, beefy, well-constructed oxford, either to wear with a blazer or layer with a sweater. That’s particularly so with the weather returning to more Chicago-like snow and chill. Enter the Oxford Flannel shirt in light gray by Individualized Shirts. Not only is it made of two-ply worsted cotton, it is made in the U.S., and sold at Inland Clothing, which is committed to goods produced “by workers who enjoy U.S. wages, labor protections, and working conditions.” Yes, the shirt costs a little more, but the quality and ethos makes it well worth it.
