At first, Used by English polo players, the buttoned collar was used to keep it in place so as not to bother them.

It was a certain John E. Brooks who chose the button-down function during a visit to England.

Technically made with a basket weave, with the doubling of the weft and warp threads, of the same "count" or with doubled warp threads and a smaller count and a larger and softer single weft thread. It is with this same process that we have woven ours, we have also increased the weight per m². It's solid 6.5 oz = 180 grms unlike the 5 oz = 141 g found on most oxford shirts on the market.
