A vintage plaid pattern, all-American color palette, and a solid oxford base - it's tough to go wrong with this shirting from Japan.
This style uses Oxford cotton cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. This is not your standard Oxford. Pattern and color transform a classic base into something very new. Bright reds, whites and blues define an an-American color palette. A classic plaid pattern brings them all together while lending a timeless feel. The beefy 5 ounce Oxford cloth base gives it a substantial feel. This is a perfectly executed shirt that never goes out of style. Pair it with denim and you're good for the day.
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. 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.
