Shirting with as much character as some of our favorite selvedge denims. It's hard to find, but these Rustic Slub Shirts from Japan demonstrate it's possible.
The highest depth of character is often found in the best raw selvedge denim, but sometimes we find shirting that's up to the highest standard. That's what we have here. Each detail in this fabric is elevated and masterfully combined. It starts with feel. 8 ounces and dense with an almost leathery hand. Very rare for shirting. Big slub yarns create organic irregularity in surface. True texture. Colors are dialed in to recreate a soft, lived-in look. Everything is just an extra cut above the standard.
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.
