The Preparatory oxford

In a world where ties are becoming less and less common, Weyhill & Wharf has stepped in and created a new way of wearing a tie.

With the creation of the Preparatory Oxford, we set out to preserve the disappearing necktie. Ties often serve as a window and reveal anecdotes of your personal story. We all have ties that represent our Alma Maters, our clubs and our hobbies. Some are sentimental, some are aspirational. With the Preparatory Oxford you can now wear your tie tastefully in a classic, American-made oxford.

Inspired by American sporting, social and academic pursuits, Weyhill & Wharf has set out to establish a new standard in American-made button down shirts. The Preparatory Oxford combines two quintessential American wardrobe staples: repp silk necktie designs and oxford cloth button downs. The result of this combination is a distinguished and classic button down that sets you apart from the rest.

Our Patented, Signature W&W Button-Through Collar Detail on a Custom Preparatory Oxford

Custom, hand-woven English silk was carefully selected to give an authentic, timeless feel to each oxford.  Durable 2-ply Japanese oxford cotton provides a rugged yet refined structure.  The silk trim ages well and develops a vintage look and feel with every wear and wash.

The Preparatory Oxford offers a new take on your go-to oxford that looks equally distinguished worn under your favorite sweater, blazer or worn on its own. Whether in the field, out at sea, or in the classroom - The Preparatory Oxford offers refinement and subtle differentiation.

Every shirt is designed in New York hand crafted in New England to ensure the highest quality craftsmanship and to do our part in supporting American jobs. 


Weyhill & Wharf gets its name from two childhood locations that hold sentimental value to its founder. Weyhill is the golf course where he learned the game and enjoyed some of his favorite childhood memories alongside his dad. Wharf is taken from Martha’s Vineyard, where he spent summers fishing and exploring with his grandfather.
