Recently, I was contacted by Rockridge SF, a company based in California for a product review of their oxford button down! Hooray!!! Rockridge SF specializes in men's button down shirts for the modern entrepreneur and prides themselves on doing social good! All of their clothing is manufactured in NYC and San Francisco and they accept gently worn clothing for donations to people in need!
Experience with the Brand
When Rockridge SF contacted me for a product review I was definitely concerned about whether they knew I was a woman who loved menswear! I know, it may sound crazy but I only want to represent brands who understand who I am and what I represent! Fortunately, Rockridge SF did their homework! They explained to me that while the shirts come in Men's sizing that they are excited that everyone could wear them! That definitely made this experience a little more worthwhile ;)
I went with the white oxford shirt in a medium (I've never owned a white button down before) but there were many different options in terms of the colors to choose from.
I was thoroughly impressed with the packaging for my shirt. The product comes in a white box that pulls out, revealing a shirt wrapped in orange tissue paper.
This shirt retails for $110.00 which is a little steep considering my usual shopping habits! However, with Rockridge SF manufacturing their product in the US, I can understand the higher price! I can definitely see myself investing in this shirt and really taking care of it!
I may have bitten off a bit more than I could chew on sizing! I got the shirt in a Medium and I probably should have gotten a small (one of the many dangers of online shopping lol). The armholes were too big for me and I love my shirt to be really fitted. One thing that I enjoyed was that the shirt fit over my hips, and I had no gaping issue in the breast area which is a plus! I'm waiting on the small to see which shirt fits the best!
What do you guys think about my new shirt? What should I pair it with? Comment below! OO!
Update!!!!! I was able to get the shirt in a small and it fit much better! The armholes were better tailored for my size and overall the shirt gave me a crisp and clean look! I usually wear a small in Men's shirts so I should have stuck to my gut! Either way I'm happy with the final result! Check out the updated pics below!
Thanks Rockridge SF!
