The hair will cling to the glove, so you’ll need to wash it off from time to time. Then run everything through a ten-minute no-heat dryer cycle – most of the hair will be in the lint trap.

That’s Oxford cloth button down and there’s at least one in almost every man’s closet. Back in 1896, John Brooks, grandson of the Brooks Brothers founder, took an idea from polo players, buttoning down the collar to keep it out the player’s face, and made it a preppy classic. Today, it’s a trans-seasonal, hard wearing choice for everything from jeans to a downtown suit. Choices abound with colors and gentle stripes but the basic white or pale blue Oxford cloth cotton shirt is the master of all. With or without starch, we’ll make sure your OCBD shirts are fresh and ready for creating a good impression in the office or on a Zoom call.
