A seersucker shirt is the perfect accompaniment to a summer wardrobe. If you don't have one, we highly recommend you snag one now so you get it just in time for the weather to warm up.
This style uses cotton cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. If you haven't tried seersucker before you'll love the texture. Instead of the smooth feel that most fabrics have, seersucker has a textured, subtly rippled hand that just feels great on. The raised texture of the seersucker is perfect for warmer temps due to the fact that the fabric doesn't lay flat to the body, allowing for great air circulation. The baby blue check in this seersucker is just itching to be paired with some denim. This is a great summer staple that you should have in your closet.
We spent the most time really making a true improvement to fit. The best way to put it is that our updated fit simply feels more organic. There is a much more sophisticated and natural shape to the entire body, from shoulders to chest to waist that better matches the natural curve of the the human form. We’ve better aligned shoulder and chest widths and given the bottom hem only a subtle curve, striking an improved balance between tucking and untucking ability. The improved fit is something you notice the instant you put this new shirt on. It just flows with the body better and feels better on. We also believe this fit is more universal. It’s taking the place of slim and classic fits . . . this is now our best fit.
We also took this opportunity to make two key upgrades to the details while preserving the classic style we all love. The first is button placement on the placket. Most people are wearing these shirts without ties and now opening that top button leaves the ideal shape. Second is a gently rounded chest pocket shape to provide a softer, more organic look. Of course, we’ve kept all the intricate construction details from the single needle work to locker loop to box pleat.
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.
