This style combines a dark base with contrasts of rusty brown and crisp white into one of the most comfortable shirts we've made.
This style uses cotton twill from one of the finest mills in Japan. The moment you touch this fabric you know it's something special. A heaver gauge yarn and a slightly looser weave give it a vintage, lived in feel right from the start. The color combination in this style goes in a much different direction. A jet black base is contrasted with rusty browns and crisp whites in a classic plaid pattern. We love the darker, earthy palette in this style.
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.
