Huge texture, rare materials and a totally unique color. The rust linen chambrays sews into an ideal short sleeve shirt and the value is undeniable.
Chambray is such a wonderful showcase for infusing fabric with personality. This style starts with color. Both have the classic color on white composition that instantly lends chambrays a vintage appeal and lots of vibrant contrast. This version has one of the most unusual colors we've found. A red-brown warp combined with crisp white weft yields a beautifully earthy shade that's unlike any other. It has an absolutely intense grain and slubiness that creates a visual texture that elevates the entire fabric. The feel is as tremendous as the look. The near equal parts of linen and cotton result in a truly luxurious feel. The cotton helps provide instant softness, while the linen adds that telltale flowy feel.
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 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. A rounded 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.
