When we start having 70 degree weather in the Bay Area, our thoughts start turning to great fabrics for the warmer months.
This style uses cotton poplin cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. Many shades of blue is something we always like. This fabric has a large plaid pattern whose dominant color is a glacier blue. This base shade is offset by rich navy lines, and thin white tracks. You even get some of the larger squares filled with a white baby hounds tooth pattern. It all comes together to form beautiful variety and beautiful color. This is a light fabric perfect for warmer weather and we pre-wash to enhance the feel and to reduce shrink. You can imagine how this pairs with dark blue denim or a great grey pair.
Our button downs are designed to be the perfect compliment to our denim. They share the same dedication to classic American styling, a perfectly tailored fit and obsessive attention to detail.
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.
