The return of one of our favorite dobby styles. This fabric has a winning combination - selvedge, double indigo dye for great fades and a unique waffle texture.
This style uses cotton dobby cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. Dobby is a special fabric. It's prized for a weave that incorporates geometric patterns that produce extra texture. This particular style has a prominent waffle pattern. It starts more flat when in raw form but as the fabrics ages and is washed the waffle pattern becomes deeper and lends amazing texture and feel to the fabric. This style also has indigo yarn throughout. The wear-in on the fabric is absolutely beautiful. The raised edges of the waffle serve as high points to wear-in first making for great highs and lows. At 5.8oz's it feels nice and sturdy and it's finished with a white selvedge ID. Great texture and shade in a rare selvedge dobby.
Our fit starts with a beautifully tailored body, not too slim, but definitely fitted. High armholes keep the body lines clean. The length hits just right so it looks great tucked or untucked. Scooped out sides give the untucked look a bit of extra style. A traditional button down collar is secured with two side buttons and one back and has a nice soft roll.
We labor over every construction detail and find subtle ways to incorporate the selvedge. Extensive single needle stitching is used throughout. All our closures are made from true mother of pearl. A finely folded locker loop sits over a box pleat on the back yoke. The front placket is also pleated, made the right way, using a true two piece construction. The feel is more substantial and the effort higher, but it's the right way. The back of the placket gets selvedge edges running the entire length on both right and left sides. We also incorporate the selvedge on the back yoke. Nothing flashy, just a cool detail for you to enjoy each time you put on the shirt. An angular chest pocket completes the front. Our cuffs are double button with rounded corners.
Button 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.
