Ametora Button-Down Oxford Shirt

Ametora is Japanese slang for “American traditional” — the East Coast collegiate style that forged the Japanese menswear industry in the 1960s. Our Ametora oxford cloth button-down in white or saxe blue offers an authentic recreation of the dress shirts commonly seen on Madison Avenue in the 1950s. The shirt body uses the looser fit of that era, and the long collar, at 3.5-inches, is perfect for wearing with a necktie and navy blazer or for staying visible under a sweater. Other Ivy-style details include a box pleat at back and gathered sleeves on barrel cuffs. The oxford cloth is woven in Japan from American Sea Island Cotton, and the six-front buttons are made from white mother-of-pearl.

Unbeatable price for the quality

These are excellent shirts. The fabric is top notch, the details are classic without being overwrought, and the all-important collar roll is both an homage to the shirts of yore while still being distinctive. A wonderful and worthy addition. Perhaps in Indian hand-woven madras someday?? Insh'allah...

My new best shirt.

This is one of the best shirts I've owned. It's right up there with Ralph Lauren, and similar to another shirtmaker I'm drawn to-Far East Manufacturing.
The shirts arrived in clear plastic looking very pristine and needing some 'wear and tear'. The fit is extremely comfortable, perfect in every way, and generous fitting to match the modern relaxed fit trend in menswear.
The collar length and the 'roll' is perfect.
I washed the shirts by hand and hung up to dry without wringing water out. The resulting effect was astounding. The fabric is so fine that it produced tiny wrinkles in the fabric that required a mild steam iron to straighten out. I absolutely loved the resulting look.
Thank you for exceptional shirt making!

Best oxford I own

This shirt hits the right notes - excellent fabric, great fit (neither slim nor baggy). If you have a more athletic build, this is the Kamakura shirt for you.

Great Shirt

Kamakura got all of the details right on this shirt. I wish it came in eco-friendly packaging/no packaging. Too much plastic.

Dear CJ B,

Thank you for your feedback! Your suggestion about using eco-friendly package is highly appreciated. We will certainly take it into consideration for future improvements.

Top drawer OCBD from Kamakura - great collar role and superb sea-island cotton - nice addition to Graham Marsh's Vintage Ivy line.
