One of the finest cottons in the world transformed into a classic button down right in the USA. The moment you touch this shirt, you know you have something special. These are the new Egyptian Giza Cotton shirts.
Today we have an example of classic style dialed dialed way up through the use of the finest ingredients possible, in this case cotton. Egyptian Giza is arguable the finest in the world. It's a small subset of Egyptian cotton that is absolutely prized for quality. Strength, durability and luscious softness. When you touch this shirt your really get it. There is a suppleness and almost silky smoothness that sets these shirts apart. Wearing them is even nicer. The softness enhances the drape and fit. The range of colors in this twill is equally rich, this one a soft purple on white. This is classic shirting perfected.
This shirt is sewn up in our Classic Style. We spent the most time really making a true improvement to fit. The best way to put it is that our updated fit simply feels more organic. There is a much more sophisticated and natural shape to the entire body, from shoulders to chest to waist that better matches the natural curve of the the human form. We’ve better aligned shoulder and chest widths and given the bottom hem only a subtle curve, striking an improved balance between tucking and untucking ability. The improved fit is something you notice the instant you put this new shirt on. It just flows with the body better and feels better on. We also believe this fit is more universal. It’s taking the place of slim and classic fits . . . this is now our best fit.
We made two key upgrades to the details while preserving the classic style we all love. The first is button placement on the placket. Most people are wearing these shirts without ties and now opening that top button leaves the ideal shape. Second is a gently rounded chest pocket shape to provide a softer, more organic look. Of course, we’ve kept all the intricate construction details from the single needle work to locker loop to box pleat.
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.
