A shirting first for us, this rare selvedge Oxford boasts a bright blue base that's made even more special with a crisp white pinstripe. This is Oxford shirting taken to the next level.
This style uses selvedge Oxford from one of the finest mills in Japan. One thing that always draws us to a fabric is when the mill takes a very traditional style and finds a way to make it look totally new. That is exactly why we love the Selvedge Pinstripe Oxford. Instead of a traditional color with white composition, this Oxford uses a bright blue yarn throughout, creating a saturated and wonderfully inky surface. Making this shirt a true new find for us is the thin, crisp white pinstripe that provides a great contrast to the saturated base. Finding all this in a selvedge composition is truly rare. This one goes in your special shirt collection.
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.
