A old-school icon faithfully honored by a master mill in Japan. Rugged, complex and full of rich color, these are the Rustic Tweed shirts.
The tweed dates back to 1800s Scotland where it was used a true working fabric. It was built to be tough to withstand harsh conditions. This version from Japan faithfully captures this rough spirit while wrapping it in a beautiful package. The base is a blend of wool and cotton, but no attempt is made to hide the wools fibrous, almost burlap feel. You know this is not your basic shirting fabric the moment you touch it. The texture is noticeable and old-school. The 6.5 ounce base weight keeps it wearable. The plain weave is a great showcase for the multi-colored yarn that is used to create an organic, heather-like effect. Brick surrounds a brown-khaki with plums and mustards. Vintage workwear fabric done right.
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.
