A rusty brown base is brought to life in this plaid with pops of sky blue, white and red. It's an ideal winter shirt that's comfortable and light enough to go year round.
This style uses cotton cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. There's nothing better than a vintage color palette wrapped in a classic plaid pattern. The Rust Sky Plaid is the latest example. The base is an earthy, rusty brown, setting up a nice cool weather feel. When you add in bright lines of sky blue and white, and super thin red highlights, you get a nice bump of life and a set of colors that screams old-school. The surface of the fabric is lightly brushed creating an extra soft fee. This is one of shirts you'll find yourself reaching for first every morning.
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.
