Boldly colored and nicely balanced, this lively plaid will be your new spring companion.
This style uses cotton cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. We like to pair a brighter color with our dark raw denim or khaki chinos. This is exactly the type of plaid shirting we reach. The pattern is a very tight plaid. Channels composed of extra thin lines create an almost shaded appearance. Color fills in the detail. In this case bright blues and oranges both contribute true life to this shirting fabric. A lighter weight keeps it easy to wear. Gear up for the sunny days now.
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.
