A truly all-American color palette wrapped in an unbelievably soft brushed twill.
This style uses cotton cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. There are lots of reasons to love this twill. The first one you'll notice is the feel. It is luxuriously soft. An open weave and lightly brushed surface creates a fabric that feels gauzy and just flows. Next comes the classic plaid pattern with a truly patriotic color palette. Red dominates the base, while large navy channels add a darker look. White helps brighten the package up. This is a shirt you just might sleep in.
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.
