Stuff We Like: Brooks Brothers Worn-In Oxfords
Matthew Hranek, GQ Magazine
I'm all about patina. There is nothing quite like a weathered Barbour, broken-in selvage jean or a well-worn oxford button-down. There are a couple ways to get to it: either earn it yourself or scour the thrift or vintage markets and find the ones that have been beat up for you. Now Brooks Brothers is offering another option to the equation. They've taken their classic oxford cloth shirt , slimmed it down and given it a "worn-in" look thanks to heavy washing and a bit of fraying along the edges. If you can't beat 'em, buy 'em.
Brooks Brothers Worn-in Oxford Sport Shirts, $98.50 each, available at brooksbrothers.com.
