Chambray with a twist. It's time to expand your collection with this fine, blue and white striped selvedge version from Japan.
This style uses cotton cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. We've explored the word of solid color chambrays thoroughly, but there is a whole world of chambray alternatives. This is a prime example. It starts with a classic chambray base to give you a touch of ruggedness. You can see subtle cross hatch grain in the surface. The defining characteristic of this fabric is the vertical stripe. Crips white alternates with a sky blue. It's almost a bit formal, which balances the chambray base quite nicely. At 4 ounces, it's very supple and the selvedge composition with classic red ID makes it all that much sweeter. Chambray with a new look.
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.
Buttons 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.
