Oxford (cloth)

Oxford is a type of woven fabric, employed to make the fabric in oxford shirts. The warp has two fine yarns paired together. The weft has one heavier, softly spun fill yarn, which gives the fabric a very subtle basketweave look with a silk-like & lusterous finish making it one of the most popular fabrics for a dress shirt. The Pinpoint Oxford is a similar fabric with a finer basketweave look.
