There is nothing better than being a well-dressed dapper man–especially during the summer when every guy you see is wearing raggedy t-shirts and flip-flops. The easiest and most affordable way to upgrade your wardrobe is with a nice Oxford dress shirt. With so many great summer colors available, there is no reason why you shouldn’t have a few of these essential shirts in your closet. Once you buy an Oxford, you’ll want more because of the wide selection of colors, low prices, and variety of styles.
Summer colors range from white to bright and are usually colorful but not too loud. They are subtle light colors that can be matched up with a variety of different outfits. The many colors available for the Oxford have turned it into a West Coasting staple for many people. On any given summer day or night, you are bound to see men wearing an Oxford and standing out from the crowd. These men are few and far between because most guys associate “dress shirts” with being uncomfortable, but this is not the case.
Oxford’s are not only comfortable, they are also stylish. The Oxford shirt also has it’s own unique style that’s different from all the other dress shirts because you can dress them up or down. With the same shirt, you can wear khakis and hit the beach, throw on some Levi’s and go on a date, or wear some slacks and attend a formal event. The possibilities are endless with the Oxford and people will notice when you wear one. Versatility is important when building your wardrobe and the Oxford fits the bill.
Prices for Oxford’s are not too expensive–but keep in mind that you always get what you pay for. You can go to JC Penney’s and pick up a nice shirt for around $20 and look pretty dapper. But if you want to get something that’s a little more modern and fitted, Macy’s has some great options that range between $50-$75. The point is that there are many different manufacturers, styles, and price ranges for Oxford’s so you should shop around and find a few that fit your taste and budget.
Soon, The John Dapper Clothing Brand will be manufacturing and selling our own blend of Oxford shirts. But until then, I highly recommend you go out and purchase a few and try them out this summer. I guarantee you will look and feel great–and that’s what summer is all about! Remember, you can wear virtually anything with a nice shirt as long as you wear it with confidence. Throw on your shirt and step out of your house know that you’re a John Dapper Man.
