Navy, royal and white mean you just found a classic, nicely formal shirt that just can't wait to be worn with your favorite pair of denim.
This style uses cotton cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. Small check patterns a always nice to have in your rotation. They have enough formality to work in the office, but often enough color and life to work in more casual settings just as well. This version is a perfect example. A great tonal blue palette of navy and royal channels is brightened up by a crisp white base. It's immediately classic and vibrant. A smaller check size also helps lend a slightly more dressy appearance. The base weave is a twill and the feel is extra soft. This is one of those shirts you'll just gravitate towards every week.
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.
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.
