Big weight, flowing feel, retro colors. The new Big Rope shirts have everything we love shirting fabric plus the value to match.
Our favorite fabrics blend big weight with surprising comfort. That's the starting point for these new styles. Heavy rope-like yarns form a burly 8 ounce base. You can feel the rounded texture of the big yarn the moment you touch these. An extra loose weave is expertly used to balance the big weight with a surprisingly flowing character. These shirts have a softness and pliability that make them highly wearable. It's the ideal blend of weight and wearability. The retro colors and classic plaid create complete the package.
This shirt is sewn up in our new Rugged style. It's designed to be the perfect style for our heavier, more rustic fabrics we run. It's a bit more casual, without being over the top. This style is really set off by two key design cues: a perfectly sized collar without buttons and two clean button closure, rounded chest pockets. These two elements lend the style it’s more casual look while their clean implementation keeps the shirt versatile. A simpler back yoke replaces the box pleat and locker loop of our Classic style. Intricate stitching tacks down the collar stand. The Rugged style inherits the same core fit block from the updated Classic style. The moment we sewed up some flannels and heavy jacquards in this style we knew it was right.
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.
