A bit like stepping back in time in all the best ways, this fabric expertly combines color and pattern to create a true throw-back style. This is the new Retro Plaid in short sleeve form.
Some shirting instantly transports you. It's usually the palette of colors, maybe the pattern, but there is something about the design that takes you back. That's why we love these Retro Plaids. Pure vintage goodness. It starts with a big, bold plaid pattern. Big squares of color, thin lines, thick lines. This is not a subtle presentation. Next the color. Vintage combinations in a wide range. Pick your favorite.
Our short sleeve button-up fits just like the long sleeve. It shares the same beautifully tailored body, not too slim, but definitely fitted. High armholes keep the body lines clean. A very gently scooped bottom hem that works wonderfully un-tucked or tucked. A no-button collar that’s perfectly sized to sit well.
We labor over every construction detail. Extensive single needle stitching is used throughout. All our closures are made from true mother of pearl. 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. A rounded chest pocket completes the front.
Button-up shirts 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.
