Darker colors in a lively floral pattern all wrapped in a our perfectly styled short sleeve button up shape. Everyone needs this classic style for summer.
We all need at least one great floral for summer. There's just no avoiding it. When done right, they bring colors and pattern together into a fun whole. The best versions still manage to keep it classy by controlling the pattern perfectly. This version is a great example. The base is a pure jet black, a surprising start for a floral shirt. A dense leaf pattern in sharply contrasting white and grey adds brightness, while rich teal flowers are perfectly used for additional pops of color to complete the package. It's fun, but not over the top. A smooth, lightweight plain weave fabric makes this shirt ideal for warm weather. Fun and comfortable, all in the same package.
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.
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.
