Everything is big in this luxurious new fabric from Japan - big weight, big checks, big color, big comfort. This is the new Super Heavy Buffalo Flannel in true retro style.
Part of mission at GUSTIN is to bring you fabric you likely will never see from other brands. That often leads us to Japan and frequently to styles that dial key elements way up. These new shirts are perfect examples. They start with big weight - an 8.5 ounce base that extra dense. It's a perfect winter weight, you feel warm and protected. Next comes the pattern - a classic monster check often referred to as a Buffalo check. It's bold. The colors truly make these styles old-school and bright - our hands-down favorite school bus yellow on black or the timeless fiery red on black. Each is a perfect pairing with denim and a cloudy winter day. Finally you have huge comfort. The flannel is heavily brushed for softness. These are lively classics.
This shirt is sewn up in our new Rugged style. It's designed to be the perfect style for our heavier, more rustic fabrics we run. It's a bit more casual, without being over the top. This style is really set off by two key design cues: a perfectly sized collar without buttons and two clean button closure, rounded chest pockets. These two elements lend the style it’s more casual look while their clean implementation keeps the shirt versatile. A simpler back yoke replaces the box pleat and locker loop of our Classic style. Small gusset tabs adorn the bottom hem and intricate stitching tacks down the collar stand. The Rugged style inherits the same core fit block from the updated Classic style. The moment we sewed up some flannels and heavy jacquards in this style we new it was right.
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.
