Our First Secretary shirt is part of our new collection of Tall-Point collar shirts which celebrate hardworking diplomats in our home of Washington, DC and around the world. The shirts are an interesting mix of classic American and European style. The First Secretary is the primary diplomatic officer at a foreign mission--still managing the day-to-day operations but with an eye towards moving up to the senior ranks. Similarly the rich blue Royal Oxford fabric on our First Secretary shirt is reminiscent of traditional daily work shirts. But the new Tall-Point collar adds a feeling of aspiration and style.

is a particular variety that is grown in only a few other places. It is renowned as some of the best in the world. It has an extra long staple, which means it has longer fibers, resulting in a silkier, more durable fabric. The traditional oxford is a type of basket weave where multiple weft threads are crossed over an equal number of warp threads. The threads are usually of a single color crossed with a white to give oxford its unique, checkerboard appearance. It's a versatile that can be worn casually or professionally depending on the thread count and finish.
