Bold, bright, selvedge indigo-indigo chambray at it's best. This is only the second time we've gotten our hands on this special material and it's hard to pass up.
This style uses selvedge chambray from one of the finest mills in Japan. You can tell we've been on the hunt for beautiful chambrays lately. Throw in indigo dye and this one made us stop in our tracks. The shade on this is dyed to a brilliantly bright, cobalt blue. It really pops. What's nice is how more white starts showing through as the fabric wears in, giving it extra life and character. At 5.0oz's it has body but also a very soft hand. It's finished with a subtle red selvedge ID. We haven't run anything in this shade before and you can see what a beautiful shirt it sews up to.
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 and find subtle ways to incorporate the selvedge. 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. The back of the placket gets selvedge edges running the entire length on both right and left sides. We also incorporate the selvedge on the back yoke. Nothing flashy, just a cool detail for you to enjoy each time you put on the shirt. 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.
