Fun florals with class. We all need at least one and today we have fresh examples from Japan. Enjoy the summer.
When done right, a great floral shirt brings colors and pattern together into a fun whole. When you can find versions that add in a degree of control that's truly the sweet spot. To us, that's what this version does so well. We start with our cleanly tailored and well-fitted short sleeve button down shape. We've dialed it in so it retains a level of comfort while still being clean. The fabric starts with a large scale floral pattern that features a nice balance of vines, leaves and big flowers. Color is used perfectly to add a level of class and we hit on new combinations for this year. This version uses a lively red on white. Get your warm weather shirting collection started right.
The short sleeve button up occupies a unique spot in our warm weather attire. It has a nice balance of formality from the button up shape with the sheer comfort of short sleeves. It's the type of shirt you can wear comfortably with shorts, a faded pair of raw denim or a clean pair of khakis. The look feels right. Ours is clean and properly constructed from a perfect collar, to a bottom hem that can be worn untucked, to nicely fitted sleeves.
Our short sleeve button-up fits just like the long sleeve. It shares the same beautifully tailored body, not too slim, but definitely fitted. High armholes keep the body lines clean. A very gently scooped bottom hem that works wonderfully un-tucked or tucked. A no-button collar that’s perfectly sized to sit well. We removed the back pleat and locker loop, adding to the minimalist and casual nature of this style.
We labor over every construction detail. Extensive single needle stitching is used throughout. All our closures are made from true mother of pearl. 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.
Button-up shirts 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.
