This may be our favorite plaid yet. It has the perfect aged look right from the start.
This style uses cotton poplin cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. This plaid has the perfect vintage, worn look right from day one. It gets this from a wonderful combination of natural yarns woven up with slightly muted, navy blue yarns. Combine this with a tight plaid pattern made up of a series of thin lines and we may have found our new go-to shirt. We pre-wash to enhance the feel and to reduce shrink. This fabric is made to go with denim.
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 always. 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.
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.
