A classic plaid with amazing array of color.
This style uses cotton poplin cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. The combination of colors in this plaid and the way they come together is why we knew we had to offer it. Browns, blacks, teals, yellows, whites, oranges. Somehow these colors all come together to form an earthy mixture that has enough richness and brightness to keep it balanced. The pattern is classic plaid and the lighter weight makes this soft from day one.
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.
