We love a good colorful plaid. When the palette is vintage and bright we like it even more. It's daily argument in the office as to whether this shirt or the Midnight Plaid is better. There are no signs of a resolution, so we recommend owning both.
This style uses cotton poplin cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. We chose this plaid because of it's striking appearance, something a little different than what we normally offer. The color palette is slightly on the earthy side with vibrant pops of lime and periwinkle, all nicely muted so it isn't too loud. The pattern is interesting with varying thick and thin lines which makes it is a more intricate plaid. This is a great style to amp up your classic wardrobe.
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.
