Sometimes we find a plaid that has just the right pattern and combination of colors to really stand out. The Navy Teal plaid is a perfect example and it's just itching to be worn with your favorite denim.
This style uses cotton poplin cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. The lens we pass a lot of plaids through is how well they will work with our favorite pair of denim. This version passed with flying colors. It starts with the pattern. This one has a compact classic plaid which lends it just a touch of formality. The pattern also serves to bring the shades together perfectly. Navy blue squares and white channels really set the overall tone with nice contrast. Complementing this are thin black lines and teal channels - again proving the contrast of light and dark. You can see how wonderfully this fabric pairs with a nice raw dark denim. We're all in on this one.
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.
