Classic, slubby chambray gets treated to rare hemp yarns and a rich palette of color. These are the new Hemp Chambray Long Sleeve Shirts. The value is our pleasure.
Great chambray is a versatile classic. The contrasting warp and weft and intense grain from slubby yarn give chambrays character and texture that most shirting lacks. It's a utilitarian fabric that has been lavished with huge attention to detail and quality by the best mills. Today is the latest example. The kicker is the addition of a high percentage of hemp blended with cotton. Unlike some fibrous blends which have a papery feel at first, this version is flowingly soft. Hemp add breathability and strength, cotton adds real world usability. The colors are soft and organic. Nothing trendy here, just true quality that never goes out of style. Sewn in the USA and offered at one of our best values for a style like this.
This shirt is sewn up in our Classic Style. We spent the most time really making a true improvement to fit. The best way to put it is that our updated fit simply feels more organic. There is a much more sophisticated and natural shape to the entire body, from shoulders to chest to waist that better matches the natural curve of the the human form. We’ve better aligned shoulder and chest widths and given the bottom hem only a subtle curve, striking an improved balance between tucking and untucking ability. The improved fit is something you notice the instant you put this new shirt on. It just flows with the body better and feels better on. We also believe this fit is more universal. It’s taking the place of slim and classic fits . . . this is now our best fit.
We made two key upgrades to the details while preserving the classic style we all love. The first is button placement on the placket. Most people are wearing these shirts without ties and now opening that top button leaves the ideal shape. Second is a gently rounded chest pocket shape to provide a softer, more organic look. Of course, we’ve kept all the intricate construction details from the single needle work to locker loop to box pleat.
Buttons downs that are made in the USA using our quality of material and construction are typically priced at $175 to $300. The Gustin model, with your support, lets us do much better.
