A softly colorful palette, vintage plaid pattern and light weight make this shirt the perfect way to ease into spring.
This style uses cotton cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. Some fabric just makes us think of perfect spring days. It requires the right combination of color and feel and this fabric nails it. It starts with feel. At 3 ounces this is a perfect warmer weather fabric. It's flowing and incredibly soft. The colors really capture an easy spring-summer day. A muted powder blue serves as the base. On top of that come light tans, royal blue and a flash of pink. All this color is wrapped up in nicely vintage plaid patter. We love the breezy and light feel of this shirt.
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.
