Rich metallic shade and massive texture that's purpose built for warm weather. This is our first seersucker of the year and it's some of the nicest we've seen out of Japan.
This style uses cotton cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. Seersucker is special fabric and we wanted our first version of the year to be a stunner. We think we've found it. What we truly appreciate about seersuckers is how the weave has been designed with function in mind and the result goes way beyond that. The weave causes areas of the fabric to pull together. This creates a beautifully textured surface that increases airflow to the skin, keeping you cooler. The depth and feel of this fabric is like no other. The color simply puts it over the top. It's a tad unexpected really. Instead of the predictably bright colors we often see in seersuckers, this one is light concrete grey. There is a slight heather effect as well that gives the color more complexity.
Our button downs are designed to be the perfect compliment to our denim. They share the same dedication to classic American styling, a perfectly tailored fit and obsessive attention to detail.
Our fit starts with a beautifully tailored body, not too slim, but definitely fitted. High armholes keep the body lines clean. 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.
Button 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.
