Pure linen comfort wrapped in colors and pattern that scream vintage. This is one of the few 100% linen shirt's we've run and it's too good to pass up.
This style uses linen cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. Some fabrics come in and we want them so much personally that we just have to offer them to you as well. The Vintage Linen Plaid is just one example. There is just something special about
the way each element comes together. You just can't wait to wear this shirt. It starts with the composition. 100%, pure linen. Built for warm weather comfort, this shirt has that classic linen feel and just gets better with each wear and wash. The pattern is a classic plaid, dominated by dark blues and reds. White provides contrast and thin channels of yellow add a pop of color. What's nice is that there is slight graininess to the color which tones down the colors and gives them a truly vintage feel. Comfort and classic style.
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.
