Oxfam is short for the company Oxfam International. The company was founded in 1995 and is a charity organisation. It aims to reduce poverty, suffering, and injustice.

Oxfam has a large number of charity shops all around the world, where clothes and other items are sold at a cheap price in order to keep the organisation running.

Many people regard 'Oxfam' as cheap and dirty, because the clothes and items for sale in Oxfam were donated and were seen as worthless before they were sold. The person wearing second-hand clothes purchased from Oxfam may be seen a scrubber, however the person wearing the clothes will feel they have bought cool, good quality clothes for a cheap price.
Boy #1: Yo' scrubber and dirty cuz yo' shop at Oxfam.
Boy #2: Yes, the clothes were cheap and purchased from Oxfam but I am proud that this money has gone to a worthy charity and that I haven't paid through the nose for them.

A shop where, yes, the prices are cheap, and the clothes are second hand, but the things that you buy give money to people who need it. Charity shops such as oxfam, shouldn't be used as insults to people, for it isn't bad to shop at these places. Some idiots are too imature to realise the good caused by shopping at one.
Idiot 1: Haha! Look, he shops at oxfam!
Idiot 2: Oh My God! You Loser!
Me: Oh, shut up!
