True collector status shirting in the form of ultra-rare, persimmon dyed selvedge chambray straight from Japan. This will be your most stunning shirt hands-down.
This style uses selvedge chambray from one of the finest mills in Japan. If you want to find chambray that's as artistically created and designed as a great selvedge denim, the only place to look is Japan. This version is a first for us and is simply dialed up in every dimension. The base is a an already rare selvedge chambray. A very cool double ticker ID is used with red and blue colors. The 6 ounce weight is paired with a nicely flowing feel, creating the ideal year-round feel. Dye is where things get truly stunning. This is the first shirting fabric we've found that uses persimmon dye. The result is an incredible golden brown. The grain in the fabric combined with the dye gives it almost wood-like appearance as you see awesome dark and light browns emerge. There is such amazing visual texture. We live for fabric finds like this and despite all the options we have personally available to us, we're all in line for this one.
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.
