    The Oxford simple shape could, with some justification, be described as one of the ugliest and least dignified hood patterns in the world. This short paper takes as premise the belief that all Oxford hoods were at one time of the full shape, and essays a reconstruction of the process by which the pattern of hood for the lower degrees evolved, or more accurately devolved, into the modern Oxford simple shape.
