A classic chambray look in a more refined package makes this shirting a special option for your collection.
This style uses cotton cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. We're huge fans of chambray shirts. There's a classic ruggedness about them that's hard to beat. Usually we find burly, bigger weight, slubby styles from Japan, so we were pleasantly surprised to find a chambray that moves in a slightly more refined direction. This one is a lighter weight 3.5 ounce style and the yarns are very fine. This more supple composition combined with the classic indigo on white composition creates a totally new animal. It has the classic chambray look with a much finer touch. It dresses up wonderfully with crisp denim or khaki chinos. The comfort is superb. At $79 this is one of our best chambray values.
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.
