Men's Sail Rigger Oxford Shirt
Substantial Fabric and Classic Looks
I love wearing oxfords casually and have been looking for some that I felt would last. I bought one of these in tailored fit medium and one in traditional fit small. I much prefer the fit of the small.
The fabric is substantial, but breaths well. I expect that this shirt will be with me for years based on how the material feels. I'm really looking forward to breaking it in over the next year.
I'm 5'10", 190lbs and generally wear mediums. Because I'm looking for the slimmer, more modern fit, I sized down and the fit is perfect. I highly recommend this shirt as an affordable oxford.

Nice casual button down.
I bought two of these because I liked the description--looks good a bit wrinkled right out of the wash. I did need run an iron over them but they did not look starched and up tight. I like the look so much, I bought two more.

Always looks like it just washed
I bought 3 shirts in different colors, I usually send my shirts to the cleaner. They came back looking like they went into the cleaners. I "chatted" on-line with customer service. She wasn't much help.I can away with the feeling that you can't press they shirts. All cotton and they can't be pressed! Where are the Old Hyde Parks.

perfect oxford (husband reviewing, not "smallandpicky" wife)
My wife recommended this shirt after seeing it in a catalog. I was hesitant. For casual, I like to wear 10 to 15 year-old Land's End oxfords that I've retired from wearing to work. You can't buy that kind of shirt, you have to grow it. My wife said this shirt would be like that. I was dubious. But I ordered a couple of these in blue. Amazing. They feel just exactly like they are 10 to 15 year-old former dress shirts--but with a wonderful heavy feel. Sleeve length isn't an issue because of two buttons on the cuff (something else I used to be dubious about). The shirt is roomy and drapes beautifully. The blue color is perfect; makes me feel French some days when the light is right. I now have six of these excellent shirts in both blue and white. I don't enjoy wearing my old work shirts much anymore. As I told my wife the other day, finding these fine shirts was one of the smartest things I've done lately. If you enjoy a good broken in oxford I bet you'll love this shirt. Let's hope LE doesn't quit making them.

Experience 1967 in 2013. What a great shirt. Polo and Gant just got served.
I purchased the classic cut Rigger in both solid and stripe design. What a great shirt. It has all the hallmarks of an excellent shirt: button plackets on the sleeves, split collar yoke, single-needle tailoring, rear collar button, button down collar, and a glorious heavy weight cotton.
The way the collar sits and handles a tie is the best. Launder this shirt and take it anywhere for any occasion, casual or dress. I really like the rear buttoned collar and loop on the back. Finally, a shirt that exudes style in a shirt -world of sameness. Forget those permanent press shirts and pseudo-oxfords, the Rigger allows you to experience 1967 in 2013.
Can the pink oxford and blue banker's stripe be far behind?

The perfect oxford for me
I like them old school. "No iron" and "trim cut" simply aren't improvements in my book. This is as close to an old-school oxford as I've found anywhere at any price. Crisp if ironed. Soft and rumply if not (my preference.) The only thing that could possibly improve this nearly-perfect shirt is if they could leave out the fusing in the collar construction--but this is a trifling quibble with an otherwise home run. Can we get more colors? Candy stripes?
