A color match made in heaven. This Japanese flannel gets everything in one of the most luxuriously soft fabrics we've felt.
This style uses cotton cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. We've mentioned this before, but some fabrics just stop you in your tracks. It can be for a variety of reasons, but in the case of this flannel it starts with color. A deep navy is crossed by a charcoal in a tight check pattern. Both colors lend a richness to this fabric that's arresting. This thing is just itching to be thrown on with your favorite denim. Add to this the heavily brushed surface that creates one of the most flowingly soft fabrics we've felt and you have a true stunner.
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.
