The Oxford Shop Green Hills Nashville

The Oxford Shop has a rich history in Nashville that began in 1961 when our doors first opened on West End Avenue. After 18 years on West End, we relocated to Grace’s Plaza in Green Hills. Now, we’ve moved to 3830 Bedford Avenue in Bedford Commons in the heart of Green Hills.

Oxford Shop Nashville TN

We believe we’ve created an ideal upscale men’s clothing destination, unmatched in Nashville. The Oxford Shop has always carried fine clothing, but we thought it was time for our surroundings to reflect the quality of our merchandise. We’ve captured a unique feel that our customers have likened to a visit to Fifth Avenue in New York or Worth Avenue in Palm Beach.

Change doesn’t come without challenges. We strive daily to keep the shopping experience fresh for customers. As leaders in high-end retail, The Oxford Shop knows that to earn a repeat customer, there must be a compelling reason to come back. Our brand and distinct identity have been critical to retaining your loyalty and our vital leadership role in the industry. So we are proud to showcase an image that accompanies the timeless, quality merchandise Nashvillians expect.

We offer a wide variety of high-end clothing to complement any wardrobe – from chic casual wear by Peter Millar and Bills Khakis to the best in finely tailored suits by Samuelsohn and Burberry. At The Oxford Shop, you’ll experience a low pressure environment that gives you the freedom to browse and enjoy your time spent in our store. The Oxford Shop is proud to clothe some of Nashville’s most prominent business people, just as we have their fathers and grandfathers. It gives us great satisfaction to learn we’ve become a destination for people with an eye for men’s fashions, who are visiting from around the country.

The Oxford Shop is evidence that the days of having to travel out of town to find the best in men’s upscale fashions are over. The upscale men’s clothing business is competitive; the point of difference begins and ends with customer service. The business philosophy at The Oxford Shop is – take care of your customer. Period. Deliver a consistent, quality product, and always do what you say you’ll do. At The Oxford Shop, we “think outside the suit.” We look forward to your visit.

The Oxford Shop stays true to roots after 55 years. The Tennessean January 6, 2016

A fashion movement is growing in Nashville as designers plant roots and new retail stores open, bringing influences from the coasts.

But one Green Hills retailer is celebrating decades of success by sticking to its core business model: high-end men’s clothing with a strong focus on customer service.

For 55 years, The Oxford Shop has been dressing customers ranging from high school students in need of a suit for homecoming to well-established business professionals.

“We feel like everyone wants to be here now because Nashville has become so popular in the last few years, but for us, it has always been the kind of ‘it city,’ ” said Eric Viars, who owns the store with David Garris.

Dress shirts, suits and ties help fill the 2,100-square-foot space at 3830 Bedford Ave. just west of The Mall at Green Hills. Viars and Garris purchased the commercial space in 2007, relocating the store from a busier shopping center near Trader Joe’s in favor of easier customer access and ample parking.

The Oxford Shop went through several ownership transitions before Viars and Garris purchased it in 1993 from a Louisville, Ky.-based company.

“I decided at an early age this is what I wanted to do,” Viars said about his career in the retail industry.

Now, the duo are proud to call The Oxford Shop an independently owned store.

“We feel like being part of the community and driving here and sending your kids to school here and doing business with other locally owned businesses, it’s a big deal for us,” Viars said.

The store’s inventory reflects its Nashville roots. Despite the city’s evolving fashion scene, Viars said his customers are still interested in traditional and high-end men’s clothing.

“(Nashville) has always been kind of a Southern town with very traditional looks. That has evolved somewhat, I think, with the influx of people to Nashville, so it has gotten edgier, but I think it’s still, for the most part, very true to its roots,” Viars said.

The Oxford Shop’s main focus is made-to-measure shirts, pants, jackets and suits, led by master tailor Leo Alvarez. The store is an exclusive retailer for high-end menswear brand Samuelsohn. Some sportswear also is mixed in the store, including Peter Millar and Barbour brands.

Viars said the higher price points appeal to customers looking to invest in quality pieces.

“We truly look at what we sell as an investment in who you are and what you do. We just don’t take something and put a high price tag on it; there’s a certain level of craftsmanship and quality that comes along with it,” Viars said.

Like many independent retailers, The Oxford Shop had to weather hard times, particularly during the economic downturn when customers were tightening their wallets and as more consumers turn to online shopping for convenience. One challenge as a small-business owner is not having the same pricing leverage as chains and department stores that buy in bulk.

Viars said it is The Oxford Shop’s commitment to customer service that helps build a loyal client base — starting with customers as young as high school students.

“It’s all relationship driven with us. We know almost everyone who walks in the door. We know who they are, what they do, where they like to go,” Viars said.

As The Oxford Shop celebrates its 55th anniversary this year, Viars said he’s looking to move the business’s back office operations to a separate space because the store is at maximum capacity. He’s also working with a Web developer on a new website with the potential for an e-commerce component.

When Dining in Green Hills, Think Outside the Chain

An area that is characterized by its options for fashion and home decor, Green Hills is often overlooked as a go-to spot for local dining. Yes, it is home to ever-popular chains, such as Chipotle, Zoe’s Kitchen and California Pizza Kitchen. But it also offers locally run and locally sourced restaurants that are worthy of a visit. Believe it or not, there are 29 locally owned restaurants in the area. There’s no need to spend hours deciphering The Cheesecake Factory’s novel-length menu or waiting in the McDonald’s drive-thru line. Support these local businesses instead. While even we can admit we haven’t dined at all of these spots, we now know the answer to “Are there any locally owned restaurants in Green Hills?” Why, yes. Here they are:

Hours: Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Although Little Gourmand is known for its gourmet market and pantry items, which range from caviar and foie gras to truffles and teas, freshly made baguette sandwiches are reason enough to stop by this French market tucked away in The Courtyard at Bandywood. Five sandwiches are currently available, and expect to see soups and salads on the menu soon, as well as breakfast service on Saturday mornings.

Savory and sweet European treats are offered at The Perch, located in Greenbriar Village. If sweet is what you are craving, try a sugar, butter cinnamon or s’mores crêpe or a traditional or sweet potato Belgian waffle. If you are looking for something a tad more savory, order an omelette with your choice of fillings or a savory crêpe with meats and veggies.

Fox’s Donut Den

3900 Hillsboro Pike, Nashville, TN 37215 • (615) 385-1021
Hours: Monday through Thursday, 5 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Friday, 5 a.m. to 12 a.m.; Saturday, 6 a.m. to 12 a.m.; Sunday, 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.

If you haven’t been lured in by the glowing neon lights of Fox’s Donut Den, you are missing out on one of the sweetest spots in Nashville. Old-fashioned donuts sit beside apple fritters, chocolate eclairs, cinnamon rolls, turnovers, sausage rolls, kolaches, bagels and muffins, and everything is made fresh daily. This Green Hills favorite opens at the crack of dawn (5 a.m. on weekdays; 6 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday) and stays open until midnight on Friday and Saturday, so there are plenty of hours in which you can get your sugar fix.

The Painted Cupcake

Hours: Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Cupcakes with a side of macarons may not be a well-rounded meal, and The Painted Cupcake is not necessarily a restaurant by definition. But their bright, welcoming shop is a must-visit in Green Hills. Located on Glen Echo Road, The Painted Cupcake makes cupcakes, French macarons, cookies, cakes and pies daily. It is a perfect destination after you enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner at another local spot in the area — although, really, it is a destination all its own.

While Firefly Grille’s cuisine makes use of traditional Southern flavors, the dishes are anything but ordinary, and the interior is anything but traditional. The dinner menu consists of beef, chicken and pasta dishes and mouthwatering starters. One fan favorite is the white cheddar mac and cheese that is topped with bread crumbs and the nectar of the gods, truffle oil. You’d be a fool not to try a slice of their famous coconut cake for dessert.

Goozy Dessert Bar & Cafe

(Now closed, but you can still enjoy on the lower level at The Mall at Green Hills, outside of Macy’s)

Goozy Dessert Bar & Cafe asserts our belief that dessert should be the star of the show. Yes, you will find delicious salads, soups, cheese and charcuterie, and artisan grilled-cheese sandwiches (such as an artichoke melt, brie and pear, and a pimento cheese melt) on the menu. But more importantly, you will discover cakes, specialty desserts, skillet cookies, gelato, and sorbets and sundaes. If you are looking for something with a kick, try their selection of boozy shakes/floats or order from their list of cocktails, spirits, beer and wine.

Arnold’s Country Kitchen

2209 Abbott Martin Road, Nashville, TN 37215 • (615) 835-3432
Hours: Monday through Friday, 10:30 a.m. to 2:45 p.m.

We heard cheers across town when Arnold’s Country Kitchen opened the doors to their second location, which sits on Abbott Martin Road in Green Hills. This meat-and-three joint has made a name for itself not only in Nashville, but across the country. Locals and tourists flock to try, and re-try, Arnold’s Southern fare. Stroll through the cafeteria-style line for classic country offerings that change daily.

Green Hills Grille

Steven Smithing, previous employee and new owner of the restaurant, brought back this local favorite last year. The interior holds similarities to the original joint and many of the favorite dishes have reappeared on the menu. Stop in for crab cakes, artichoke dip, shrimp and grits, a selection of salads and sandwiches, and entrees with flavors borrowed from Mexico, the South, Asia and Italy.

The Bluebird Cafe

4104 Hillsboro Pike, Nashville TN 37215 • (615) 383-1461
Hours vary based on show calendar

The Bluebird Cafe is well known for its musical acts, not its food. But that being said, you can munch on appetizers, quesadillas, sandwiches and chicken fingers at the legendary spot. The atmosphere is cozy and the beer is cold. So stop in for some great music and enjoy a bite to eat and a refreshing beverage as you enjoy the show.

Hours: Monday through Sunday, 4 p.m. to 3 a.m.

Unlike most bars of its kind, The Greenhouse can easily accommodate those with dietary restrictions.

Hours: Monday through Friday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Saturday 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. 

We must admit that tacos are a staple in our weekly diet and El Paleneque is on our rotation of Mexican and Mexican-inspired restaurants in town. And although we find it hard not to order the tacos when we visit, we always find ourselves diving into a warm bowl of the chicken soup. Dare we say it is the best in town?

Another option for lunch and dinner is Ginza Japanese Restaurant. The menu shows similarities to other Japanese restaurants in the area but Ginza has a taste all its own. As many of you may know, the parking in this area can get hairy at peak hours, so plan accordingly!

Hours: Monday through Saturday, 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Sunday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Greek restaurants are sporadically placed across the city and we are glad to hear that another one popped up in Green Hills. Hommas, falafel, grape leaves, baba ghanoush and gyros are served at an approachable price point at Greek Cafe Grill, and we hear the staff is extremely friendly.

Men’s Spring Style – Style Blueprint

What They Should Wear: Men’s Spring Style

With a largely female audience, we do love talking about women’s fashion. However, from time to time, we like to turn the spotlight back to the guys, shedding some much needed light on what they should (and shouldn’t) be wearing. With Steeplechase, Mother’s Day and the bevy of May events coming up, we thought it was high time to call in the experts for some scoop on exactly what digs guys need to pick up for the season. Today, Chris Levy of Oak Hall Nashville, Eric Viars at The Oxford Shop, Klane Mapels of Flip Men’s and Wardrobe Consultant Rebecca Thompson are here to help you help him get spring style ready.

What is the most important thing a guy can have on hand for his spring wardrobe?

Sport coat

Expert: Chris Levy, Oak Hall Nashville

“You’ve got to have a lightweight, unstructured and unlined sport coat for spring. Brands like Eleventy and LBM do this the best. Be bold, and choose a subtle pattern in this style! Also, a great lightweight five-pocket pant like an AG Graduate fit will keep you cool and comfortable all season long.”

Expert: Eric Viars, The Oxford Shop

“Spring calls for lightening up on fabrics all around but especially in a sport coat or suit. Pick jackets that are softer in the shoulder, not fully lined and contain some linen in the blend. A 50% wool, 30% silk, 20% linen blend, for instance, is perfect for breathability and give any guy a lighter, less winter-weary look.”

Expert: Klane Mapels, Flip Men’s

“A great cotton or linen deconstructed sport coat in a neutral or blue tone color goes a long way during the spring months.”

Chino pants

Expert: Rebecca Thompson, Wardrobe Consultant

“If I had to choose one thing to suggest for a guy to have on hand for his spring wardrobe it would be a nice-fitting pair of chino pants. Fit is everything! A slimmer fit has been trending for men for several years, and the new fabrics that are used in many jeans and chinos give a man the slim, trim look while still being comfortable. The right pants can be dressed up or worn with leather sandals.”

What are your spring staples for 2017?

Something blue

Expert: Chris Levy, Oak Hall Nashville

“THE must-have item is anything in a high blue — such as a suit or sport coat.”

Expert: Eric Viars, The Oxford Shop

“Pinks and blues are big this spring. And every guy should have a really good pair of white jeans. Wear them with a lighter, casual Friday shoe, like the Peter Millar Summertime Sneaker.” Also, we’re excited to carry the new Peter Millar sunglasses that are 100% handmade in Italy. Our first order sold out in days, and we’re getting more in stat.”

Expert: Rebecca Thompson, Wardrobe Consultant

“A spring staple is a nice fitting sports jacket. Bright blue jackets rather than the traditional navy sports jackets are a nice spring look. There are also a lot of checked sports jackets that can be paired with multiple pants or jeans and a tee or dress shirt.”

Smart shoes

Expert: Klane Mapels, Flip Men’s

“A smart casual shoe for sure. We’ve seen the return of the canvas lace up and like it in white, grey or navy. Also, white, trim-fit jeans are popping up everywhere this year.”

How can men add a springy touch to everyday attire?

Lighten up your bottoms

Expert: Chris Levy, Oak Hall

“We recommend adding a lighter color or weight bottom. The heat regulating Brax pant, made of kapok and Pima is a favorite of ours to spring up a wardrobe.”

Wear linen

Expert: Eric Viars, The Oxford Shop

“Anything in linen, but especially a long-sleeved linen shirt with the sleeves rolled up, is a great look. A linen pocket square trimmed in a spring color is always a great way to add pizzazz and spring flair. Lighter, brighter and even loud socks are a dynamic way to show you’re not a cookie-cutter sort of guy. We’re encouraging men to wear socks that make a statement. Lavender or red with blue pinstripes? Go for it.”

Expert: Klane Mapels, Flip Men’s

“A fantastic linen shirt in rich colors by Gianetto or Bruli, depending on body type.”

Add color

Expert: Rebecca Thompson, Wardrobe Consultant

“A great way to add a spring touch to everyday men’s attire is to add color. The color should look good on his complexion. It can be aubergine if that works with his skin tone. If you like brighter colors and that works with his complexion and personality, go for it.”

What is the most common mistake men make when dressing for spring?

Short sleeves and a tie

Expert: Chris Levy, Oak Hall

“Two common mistakes really stand out: a short sleeve dress shirt with suit and tie is a no-no. That look is only meant for casual sportswear. The other is wearing a fall heavy weight sport coat with spring shirt and pant.”

Tucking, when you should go untucked

Expert: Eric Viars, The Oxford Shop

“Tucking in shirts that are meant to be untucked is a sure way to put on 20 pounds. Just make sure the shirt is not too full cut or too long, and be sure to take any tags off around the edge.”

Wearing the wrong size

Expert: Rebecca Thompson, Wardrobe Consultant

“The most common mistake men make when dressing for spring is wearing ill-fitting clothes. Remember guys, you can have a trim look and comfort. Sizes are different from manufacturer to manufacturer and from different pants within the same line, so be willing to try different sizes rather than purchasing the same one you’ve always worn. If a man is purchasing a suit, it’s important to be measured to ensure the right fit.”

Expert: Klane Mapels, Flip Men’s

“Fit, fit fit. Too lose looks sloppy and adds weight. And please, no flip flops. They don’t belong in public!”

This Is The Dirtiest Drink You Can Order

Germ-filled drinks are invading UK pubs.

Pub regulars beware: Your drinks are probably filled with germs. Science has proved it.


Pub inspectors from the company Cask Marque collected data from smart devices attached to beer taps in the UK in order determine which drinks come the dirtiest sources. It shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that busy bartenders neglect beer lines, those tubes that connect the taps to the kegs and deliver the drink to it’s glass—but that means that bars are probably serving drinks tainted with dirt and other germs.

As part of the Beer Quality Report 2017, Cask Marque found that the beverage flowing through the dirtiest pipes is cider.  44 percent of the cider consumed by thirtsy pub goers was dirty . Stout lager wasn’t far behind, with 36 percent coming out of dirty beer lines. Overall, one in three pints are served from beer lines that are in need of a good washing.

Beer lines are supposed to be cleaned every seven days, but because they live behind the bar—and away from the eyes of prying customers—it’s easier to get away with letting the dirt and germs build up without anyone noticing.

The report also broke down beer quality by region: In the Southern UK, beer is both more expensive, and the least clean. You’re luckier if you’re from (or about to visit) the North East: Their beer is the best maintained.

“Cask Marque has spent almost 20 years banging the drum about beer quality, and still the message is not getting through to retailers,”  said Paul Nunny, director of Cask Marque told The Morning Advertiser.

Since last year’s report, bars haven’t stepped up their game. Cask Marque also found that 6 percent of all pints are served too warm.

A warm beer teeming with germs sounds truly disgusting, but we doubt this report will actually drive anyone from the pub. After a few, who remembers what’s in their glass anyway.

Nashville Sous Vide Cooking

How to Get Started With Sous Vide Cooking

A first-timer’s guide to sous vide cooking. [Photographs: J. Kenji López-Alt]

Let’s say that you were a good little boy or girl this past year (or maybe you’re just really good at faking it) and somebody slipped a brand-new sous vide cooker into your stocking. Problem is, you’ve never cooked sous vide before, and it’s unlike any kind of cooking you’ve done in the past. Where should you start? What should you cook first?

Here’s a simple, no-nonsense guide to the tools you’ll need and some basic foods and techniques that should be at the top of any first-time sous vide cook’s list. These are the dishes that will show you results beyond anything you’ve ever been able to achieve through more traditional cooking methods.

Basic Equipment: What You’ll Need

The “sous vide” part of sous vide cooking refers to the vacuum-sealed bags that are often called for when you’re using the technique. However, these days, when someone says “sous vide cooking,” they’re generally referring to any kind of cooking that takes place in a precisely temperature-controlled water bath, whether you’re actually using a vacuum-sealed bag or not.

It’s a fantastic technique because it gives you, the cook, a very high level of control over the texture of the finished dish, while eliminating any chance of over- or undercooking it. Though the technique can be applied to vegetables, it’s most useful for cooking meat and eggs.

It doesn’t take much gear to get into sous vide cooking. In fact, with the beer-cooler sous vide hack I developed a few years ago, you can make any sous vide recipe with a cook time of around an hour or less using nothing more than a zipper-lock bag and a cooler. (If you haven’t tried it yet, this video might help you make up your mind.)

But some equipment is necessary if you want to perform longer cooks, or if you want to make short cooks easier. Here’s what you’ll need.

An Immersion Circulator

20151202-essential-holiday-tools-gift-guide-anova-vicky.jpg

An immersion circulator is a device that you insert into a tub or pot of water. It draws water from the tub, heats it up to a precise temperature, then spits it back out, simultaneously heating and circulating the water. A good one will have single-degree precision and accuracy. There was a time when these devices cost thousands of dollars. These days, you can get a great one for under $200, putting it in the same ballpark as a high-quality Dutch oven or skillet.

I use the Anova Precision Cooker at home; it has a super-simple interface (set the temperature with the scroll wheel and you’re ready to go) and nice connectivity features, and it’s made by a company with a strong track record for quality precision devices. Other great options are the Nomiku and the Sansaire.*

* I have not yet had a chance to test the soon-to-be-released Joule device from the team at ChefSteps, but it also looks promising.
