If you're a Gingham lover, you need a short sleeve option. This multi-colored version from Japan will perfectly fit the bill.
The short sleeve button up occupies a unique spot in our warm weather attire. It has a nice balance of formality from the button up shape with the sheer comfort of short sleeves. It's the type of shirt you can wear comfortably with shorts, a faded pair of raw denim or a clean pair of khakis. The look feels right. Ours is clean and properly constructed from a perfect collar, to a bottom hem that can be worn untucked, to nicely fitted sleeves.
Although the most traditional of Ginghams my be one color contrasted with white, adding in a bit more color sometimes makes everything better. In this case, it's a combination of 3 colors: a deep blue, jet black and crisp white. All three are wrapped in a classic gingham pattern and perfectly balanced. The black serves as a nice contrast to the bright white, while the blue really defines the overall look. A light weight and soft hand make this a dream to wear. This is quality Gingham in a shirt built for warm weather.
Our short sleeve button-up fits just like the long sleeve. It shares the same beautifully tailored body, not too slim, but definitely fitted. High armholes keep the body lines clean. A very gently scooped bottom hem that works wonderfully un-tucked or tucked. A no-button collar that’s perfectly sized to sit well. We removed the back pleat and locker loop, adding to the minimalist and casual nature of this style.
We labor over every construction detail. Extensive single needle stitching is used throughout. All our closures are made from true mother of pearl. 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.
Button-up shirts 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.
