This was our first indigo chambray from Cone Mills. We love their denim and are equally impressed by this heavy chambray.
This style uses cotton chambray cloth from Cone Mills in Greensboro, NC. This chambray is great to pair with some heavy denim or chinos. It has a great cross hatch grain is visible throughout and serves to balance out the navy indigo shade of this fabric. You can see how it ages beautifully and brightens up over time. This best all-American shirt yet and the value is impressive.
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 always. 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.
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.
