An oldie but goodie, the Cream Slate Flannel is an all time favorite that still resonates season after season.
This style uses cotton flannel cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. It has a traditional plaid pattern we know and love with a beautiful combination of colors. The base shade is a rich cream, which is offset by two shades of grey and thin tan lines. We selected a buttery soft lighter weight material that works well for layering. We pre-wash to enhance the feel and to reduce shrink. The cream base is a great combination with some crisp blue denim.
Our fit starts with a beautifully tailored body, not too slim, but definitely fitted. High armholes keep the body lines clean. 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.
