The Classic Fit has just the right proportions and falls well if one wishes to wear it untucked. It is very comfortable. It looks best with sleeves rolled up, and paired with khakis and either Topsiders or a pair of Hanna Andersson wooden clogs.
Women's Classic Fit Oxford
Almost every aspect of the Skinny Fit, on the other hand, falls under the “more narrow” description. This includes the placket, the collar and mostly, the overall fit. The single worst visual aspect of the Skinny Fit oxford shirt are the “back darts” that span the entire length of the shirt. It does achieve the goal of slimming the silhouette, but at the great expense of comfort, and when worn alone, looks. However, there is a good use: if one wants to wear an oxford under a sweater, the Skinny Fit can work well, where the Classic Fit may simply be too bulky.
