A fabric with rugged workwear origins rendered in luxuriously soft flannel form and offered at one of our best shirting values ever at $64. These are the new Flannel Chambrays. Made in the USA.
Chambray in America is a workwear icon. With rugged roots, it has been re-discovered and refined many times over from the USA to Japan. We've use many styles from organic dye to monster weight. Today's version strikes a unique balance. At first glance you see the classic color on white chambray composition. It defines the chambray look. The warp color is hard to beat, a gold standard indigo blue. Touching this fabric reveals the true departure - a luxuriously soft flannel finish. it's simply one of the softest fabrics we've found. That combination of chambrays rugged looks with the uniquely soft hand is a true pleasure. The fact that's it's one of our best shirting values ever makes it a must own.
This shirt is sewn up in our Classic Style. We spent the most time really making a true improvement to fit. The best way to put it is that our updated fit simply feels more organic. There is a much more sophisticated and natural shape to the entire body, from shoulders to chest to waist that better matches the natural curve of the the human form. We’ve better aligned shoulder and chest widths and given the bottom hem only a subtle curve, striking an improved balance between tucking and untucking ability. The improved fit is something you notice the instant you put this new shirt on. It just flows with the body better and feels better on. We also believe this fit is more universal. It’s taking the place of slim and classic fits . . . this is now our best fit.
We made two key upgrades to the details while preserving the classic style we all love. The first is button placement on the placket. Most people are wearing these shirts without ties and now opening that top button leaves the ideal shape. Second is a gently rounded chest pocket shape to provide a softer, more organic look. Of course, we’ve kept all the intricate construction details from the single needle work to locker loop to box pleat.
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.
