    Other Oxford

    A new clothing range arrives into oushop.com and the High Street shop this week.

    The Oxford Collection is a curated selection of clothing featuring Oxford collar shirts, rugby and long/short-sleeve T shirts. Designed in Italy for the University’s licensing brand programme, the styling, fabric, colour and embellishment have been influenced not only by the University’s sporting heritage and iconic blue palette, but also preppy and sports clothing produced over the last 60 years.

    Four colleges have been selected to feature in the initial collection – Magdalen, Oriel, Queen’s and Trinity. Their coats of arms adorn some of the styles, while a contemporary take on the college crest appears on the Trinity and Oriel raglan long-sleeve tees.

    Prices start from £32.

    More new products will be launched in the coming weeks, under the New Season banner. Check out instore displays in the High Street shop as well as home page banners and e-newsletter.

    OUWBC

    2015 was another historic year for Oxford rowing with women competing on the same course as the men’s team for the first time. We were there and celebrated with the team as they secured their first London win.

    We have stocked OUBC products for years now with profits helping to support the men’s team so we were delighted to do the same for the women. Everything we stock was chosen by the team, the pashmina being a favourite amongst the team and their supporters.

    We will be adding new items to the rage over the coming months so if you are a fan don’t forget to keep checking back to see our latest additions. View OUWBC collection.

    We often get asked by Oxford students where our products come from and if they are fairtrade and ethical. Both of these qualities are important to us as we strive to be a responsible trader. Over the past year we have been quietly working away in the background checking our products, where they come from and who makes them. A sign of our progress in this area is that you may have noticed more and more of our clothing is being made from fairtrade cotton.


    Further to that we have also been supporting companies closer to home, Chapman who make our luxury handmade canvas bags are in Cumbria while some of our jumpers are made in Scotland. For us it is easy to visit the factories and it is always exciting to see our products being made.
     

    So, next time you buy something from us you can be safe in the knowledge that we are checking so you don’t have to.

    Christmas was only a couple of weeks ago and yet it feels like a distant memory as we realise we are half way through January already. I am pleased to say we had an incredibly busy time in December, this is great as it means we’re able to give more support to the university as that’s where all our profits go. So, on that note we would like to say a big thank you for your support and your orders.

    Looking forward to 2015

    Working in retail, January is the perfect time to reflect and plan the year ahead. What begins as random ideas that were talked about the year before are soon captured and sorted ready for creating our new products and ranges in 2015.

    If there is anything you would like to see then please don’t hesitate to contact us, and we will have a look at what we can do. Your ideas are always welcome.

    Christmas Cards

    With the nights starting to draw in, it's that time of year where we begin to turn our thoughts to Christmas.

    Over the past few months we have been talking to the colleges and helping them to produce their annual Christmas cards. These are a great way for colleges to raise money, for alumni to connect with their college and to send some Oxfordian season’s greetings.

    The 2014 selection has arrived and is now available online. If your college isn’t represented we have two new Oxford cards that are exclusive to us with all profits going back to the university.

    A handmade bear is a classic edition to any home. We have sold bears for many years in our high street shop and online and we are pleased to add this chap to our collection as we think Barrington is the finest bear we have sold to date.  Each bear is handmade in England by Brendan from mohair and suede and designed for collectors worldwide.

    Originally trained as a tailor, Brendan has been designing and crafting individually handmade, collectable bears since December 2006. He is also a member of the Guild of Master Bearcrafters.

    Showcasing some of the best British craftsmanship we think this luxury bear is worth his weight in gold. View Bear.

    Earlier this year Christelle and I travelled to York to attend the annual ACE convention. It was here that we met Tina from Tobyboo. Some of you may already recognise her work but for those who are not familiar with her designs we are pleased to be introducing you to one of England’s most unique illustrators. 
    All of Tina’s designs are drawn using a sewing machine and a completely free hand. There are no markings, sketches or outlines on the material used so each piece is drawn with a needle and thread.  It is fair to say we were wowed with her work and couldn’t wait to get back to Oxford and think of something we could do together. 
    After a few phone calls, a meeting in Oxford and some skilled stitching we are delighted to present our two latest mugs (all of which have been made in Britain).
    We hope you like them .

    Initially founded by John Chapman to produce fishing and shooting bags, Chapman has grown over the years to produce shoulder bags, luggage and accessories.

    Every bag is hand crafted in Britain in Cumbria and made to the highest quality available. As one of the only British brands to manufacture its bags in its own factory, we thought they were a perfect fit for producing our new range of canvas travel bags.

    The bags are exclusive to the University of Oxford shops and feature the university crest embossed into the leather. Perfect understated luxury and designed to last a lifetime we hope you enjoy owning one as much as we do. Shop bags and luggage.

    Something exciting this way comes…
    Over the past few months we have been working with one of Oxford’s newest sports teams. They are already holders of the British cup after winning the first ever tournament last year. Oxford is also the only University to have two qualifying teams.
    Have you guessed who they are yet?
    If not here is another clue to help you.
