A heavier weight rusty twill makes for a perfect companion to your raw denim.
This style uses cotton twill cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. The heavy weight twills have become some of our favorites here. This version starts with a classic plaid pattern , but the weight and colors makes it much more rugged. Brownish reds and muted oranges come together to create a rusty look. White and black highlights add a touch of contrast, and the twill weave adds a nice angular texture. At five ounces you get a substantial feeling shirt as well. When the weather turns, this is the type shirt we like to wear.
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 always. 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. 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. 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.
