Another pure linen beauty, this one combines rich color with a thin ticking stripe to create a look that's both vintage and colorful.
This style uses linen cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. Some shirts have a defining element. In this case a thin ticking stripe really makes the shirt. The base is an inky, bright blue. Built for warm weather comfort, there is no mistaking the classic linen feel that just gets better with each wear and wash. The dark navy ticking stripe lends a vintage vibe and is the perfect tonal compliment to the base color. Great looks and great comfort is what we like for summer.
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.
