A classic plaid serves as the perfect showcase for real indigo dyed yarns. The look is timeless, with color you can only get from our favorite dye. The Indigo Plaid.
A great plaid is always in our rotation. We've shown you many, from light weight to monster weight. Cotton to wool. The indigo dyed versions always stand out. We think the color you get from indigo is rich and special. The fact that the garment will age uniquely to you in time is even better. Today we have the one to get. Classic plaid meets indigo dye. The pattern is bold and big. Varying channel widths define a chunky retro look. Color combinations make this shirt. Indigo dyed yarns in a rich dark and cobalt indigo define an inky blue base. The perfect contrasts in crisp white and lively yellow brighten the entire style up. A classic done right.
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.
