Ivy Style posted this article on the under-appreciated yellow oxford. The point of the article was how yellow is a distant fourth when compared to white, blue, and pink OCBD options (Ecru who?). I can see how this might be the case – it is tough to find the right tie for a yellow oxford, and I can’t recall that I ever have (or would) wear yellow with a suit.
However – I have always had a yellow oxford. They are one of my favorites. I see them as a ‘dressy’ casual shirt; great to wear tie-less with a navy blazer and khakis. They look better with a BBQ stain rather than a red wine stain. An interesting quote from the piece: “However, in the South […] the margin between pink and yellow is much smaller.” I 100% agree with this, as I wear a yellow oxford as much as I wear pink, probably 1:1.
I have a few other yellows that are staples in the rotation:
Yellow/white University Stripe
Some good yellow options:
1. The Mothership – Along with BB’s pink, I think they have the best yellow as well.
2. J. Press – Complete with the flap pocket.
3. Ben Silver
4. Mercer & Sons – Bengal.
Here in Atlanta, we have quite a few yellow options – mainly because of a certain ‘Tech’ school over on North Ave.
