Slubby and bright, this is the type of chambray that Japan has truly mastered and that defines the style to us.
This style uses cotton chambray cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. Two things really jump out - the feel and the texture. This is a dense and flowing fabric. It sews into a shirt that feel great when on. There is gauzy feel to it. After the touch, comes the texture. This chambray uses high slub yarns which not only gives it great texture, but also gives it an intensely visible white grain. Neppy spots through out the surface give it even more character. The shade is a vibrant sky blue. This is chambray at its finest.
Our fit starts with a beautifully tailored body, not too slim, but definitely fitted. High armholes keep the body lines clean. 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 $250 to $300. The Gustin model, with your support, lets us do much better.
