A perfectly sun bleached color palette, tight herringbone weave and vintage plaid pattern make for a one-of-a kind warm weather shirt.
This style uses cotton cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. This shirt brings together a lot of complexity into a cohesive whole that's built for the warmer months. The first thing you notice is the very unique faded color palette. Yellows, reds and navy are all there, but they are aged as if they've been sun bleached for years. Instead of being loud and bright, the colors become perfectly muted. Additional character comes from the weave and pattern. The base is actually an extremely tight herringbone. It just lends a touch of pattern to the base fabric. On top of that is a vintage plaid pattern. All of these elements work together perfectly to create a comfortable warm season 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.
