The perfect summer weight chambray in just the right shade.
This style uses selvedge chambray from one of the finest mills in Japan. We love our chambrays here. Usually we go a bit heavier on these to give them a tougher feel, but we've been searching for something lighter weight for when the weather turns hot. This is a 3.5oz version that extra soft and supple right from the start. It combines a dark navy yarn with a white yarn and the overall appearance is slightly grey cast. The grain on this fabric is very visible and adds great texture and character. It's finished with a matching blue selvedge ID.
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 and find subtle ways to incorporate the selvedge. 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. The back of the placket gets selvedge edges running the entire length on both right and left sides. We also incorporate the selvedge on the back yoke. Nothing flashy, just a cool detail for you to enjoy each time you put on the shirt. 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.
