Enjoying a 300-year-old history, the Oxford collar’s most fashionable period was during the 1930s and 1940s, when the collar was a staple for well-dressed men and Hollywood stars. The Robert Talbott revival offers two hand-tailored options: the classic oxford round or the oxford round with hand-embroidered eyelets. Get buttoned down for $345.
