Anton L/S Oxford in Skye by Norse Projects (SS 2013) - MSRP 136.00 USD
This is what Norse Projects considers to be highlights of this shirt:
- 2x2 Basket Weave sanforized oxford cloth from Portugal.
- Light garment wash to soften fabric.
- Button holes are reinforced with ring of self-fabric.
- Slightly higher second bottom (down from the top) to minimize exposure of chest.
- Chain stitching with covered seam finish.
- More stitches per centimeter.
- Shorter collar.
Now, what I think are its highlights. This color is nice. As a consequence of life, I’ve lost my standard white and blue oxfords to stains and other random shit. So, I’ve been on the lookout. I saw this one and was like, “Hey. It’s like an in-between.” The shirt is just as quality as the S/S variation, so I’ll leave you to read my other review if you wanna know more.
What I want to emphasize with this shirt is….THE FIT. Fucking damn. I have never owned a better fitting oxford in my life. I have a standard body. No lie. Not fat. Not too skinny. Not buff. Just slim. I prefer a regular fit for shirts, t-shirts, & jackets on my upper body. Loose for pullovers and crewneck sweaters. But damn. The fit of the Anton L/S oxford is slim but not hugging in any way AT ALL. Nowhere. This is exactly why I chose Norse Project to eventually become my standard button-up. They’re built tough enough to work in, yet look damn good (and professional) while doing it.
Nothing is more comical than seeing some metro dude struggling to run the manual lathe.
My new clothes blog. Love it.
