The first double indigo, yarn dyed selvedge chambray we've ever offered. Woven in Japan and dyed to an absolutely inky, saturated blue color, this fabric makes for a stunning shirt on day one that will age just as beautifully over time.
This style uses selvedge chambray from one of the finest mills in Japan. For those of us who love indigo, nothing feeds our obsession like double indigo shirting. This style is a perfect example. Both warp and weft are dyed to the most rich shade of blue you can imagine. It's incredibly saturated and miles deep. The beauty of this fabric is that it will age over time, just like a great pair of denim. The white yarn core starts to show through as the fabric evolves over time. At just over five ounces this style is substantial and the feel is dense and soft. Icing on the cake is that it's a rare selvedge version, getting a tonal blue ID. This is type of shirting you rarely find and that you'll have in your rotation for years.
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 tucked or untucked. 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 and find subtle ways to incorporate the selvedge. 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. The back of the placket gets selvedge edges running the entire length on both right and left sides. We also incorporate the selvedge on the back yoke. Nothing flashy, just a cool detail for you to enjoy each time you put on the shirt. 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.
