Our button downs are designed to be the perfect compliment to our denim. They share the same dedication to classic American styling, a perfectly tailored fit and obsessive attention to detail.
This style uses cotton Gingham cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. This is the first Gingham we ever used and it remains a winner. Instead of the very standard white-on-single color checked pattern, we found a beautiful blue-hunter green-white pattern. The small check size gives it a slightly finer look. It's a lighter weight as compared to our beefy Oxford and has super soft hand feel. We pre-wash to enhance feel and remove shrink. We're looking forward to wearing this color combination with our denim.
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 tucked or untucked. 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.
