A flowingly soft fabric that looks as if it has been transported through time from an earlier day. This is our new Open Weave Herringbone Plaid shirting. Vintage character, pure comfort.
It's clear that Japan pays great tribute to the vintage character of selvedge denim, and we can also say that it takes the same care when tackling shirting fabric. The representation of vintage character in this fabric is spot on. It starts with unique loose weave construction. The openness lends a flowing feel to this substantial 7 ounce fabric. A herringbone composition is expertly used to lend subtle texture. A large scale plaid pattern starts the vintage appeal, while the colors complete that old-world character. This one is rendered in with rich contrast between hunter greens and purple blues. Throw this on with raw denim and you have a true old-school style.
This shirt is sewn up in our new Rugged style. It's designed to be the perfect style for our heavier, more rustic fabrics we run. It's a bit more casual, without being over the top. This style is really set off by two key design cues: a perfectly sized collar without buttons and two clean button closure, rounded chest pockets. These two elements lend the style it’s more casual look while their clean implementation keeps the shirt versatile. A simpler back yoke replaces the box pleat and locker loop of our Classic style. Intricate stitching tacks down the collar stand. The Rugged style inherits the same core fit block from the updated Classic style. The moment we sewed up some flannels and heavy jacquards in this style we knew it was right.
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.
