Hello I'm image consultant Susan Bigsby at In this clip I'm going to show you how to wear an Oxford shirt with jeans. I chose a white shirt because you have a little bit more versatility with a white shirt. An Oxford cloth shirt isn't a real slick weave, it's got a little bit of texture more like a basket weave too to the weave of the shirt and it's 100% cotton and it wrinkles very very easily. The key to a great looking Oxford cloth shirt is an iron. Please don't just pull your shirts out of the dryer looking like you've slept in them all night. You really want to look polished and neat and crisp even though it's a really casual look. So I think there is something to be said about a guy who takes care of his shirts and the way he looks versus that really rustic rugged look which works too but you want it to be casual but pulled together. So lets take a look at our model here. He has a great looking oxford cloth shirt on that I ironed right before this shot in fact and look how nice the collar lays up. I had him open the top part of the shirt so that he is wearing a T-shirt underneath for a little more casual look. You don't have to wear the T-shirt. If you'd rather it be a little bit more bare chested that's good too. I don't care whatever suits you. What I would like for you to do though instead of pulling down the shirts the shirt sleeves, just roll up the sleeves so it looks a little bit more casual, a little more relaxed. It's not quite so dweeby. Heaven forbid we should look dweeby. This looks really relaxed and totally at ease with himself. The next thing I want you to do Steve is lift your arms up over your head. You want just a little bit of give here in the way the shirt is tucked in so that it's not so tucked in. Again you want it to be a little bit relaxed. Arms down. Love it with the jeans, love it with the belt. I like it when the belt and the shoes match. It just looks a little bit better. Still in the same theme, very casual, very relaxed. The jeans look great. There is a real full break around the shoe and he looks totally together and polished and casual and very classic in a casual sense. This has been Susan Bigsby. Thanks for watching.
