The Waterproof Oxford


This pattern’s popping up more and more these days, usually in canvas. But we’re always willing to try something new…

In this case it’s a Killspencer-ish ripstop fabric, courtesy of the British marque French Connection (via World’s Best Ever). A threaded check pattern softens the shine, but it’s still a bit of a dicey proposition. You can count on canvas for a simple, earthy feeling, but goretex will either come off as futuristic or just plain oily.

For just over $50 a pop though, you can probably afford to find out.
