A small check pattern full of blue creates a unique look while the flax blend adds an equally impressive feel.
We love how small patterns can be used to create a unique overall palette of color. This shirt uses a tight check full of pale blue and ultra thin dark navy lines to render a unique blue palette. White served to break up the blue color and brighten the overall appeal. Up close you can appreciate the detail of the check and interplay of the colors. The addition of flax and a flowing feel and the durability and breathability this fiber is know for, while the cotton keeps it traditional and wearable all-year. A prominent orange selvedge ID reminds you how special the style is.
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.
