Our heaviest chambray ever, this one is truly special. Woven in Japan, extra heavy weight, amazing slubiness and a special color. This is chambray amplified to the next level.
This style uses cotton chambray cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. We've been wading into extra heavy shirting recently. It started with our heavy twills, but we've always been looking for big weight chambray. It's hard to find. Most mills don't go near it, but when you find a good one it's in a class of its own. Our Super Heavy Chambray does not disappoint. The weight is really the center piece. At 9 ounces, this chambray is beefy. The yarn is rope-like, which gives it a density and structure that's very rare. Amazing slubiness in the yarns combined with the thickness creates gorgeous spots of irregularity that lend visual variety and texture. Next comes the shade. This isn't your standard blue. Instead, it's a pale lavender. The color is soft and contrasts perfectly with the white weft. If you're not a chambray lover now, you will be after you get this shirt. This is the kind of fabric you rarely see around and that we love finding for you.
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.
