An ode to ancient Japanese Shibori dye techniques is masterfully deployed in this fabric to produce an organic combination of color and shape. These are the new Japan Shibori Dye shirts.
Shibori dye techniques are thought to date back to the eighth century in Japan. As a class of resist-dye methods, the fabric is tied in various patterns to allow the dye to penetrate certain areas and not others. In the USA, we call it tie-dyed. The hallmark of the technique is flowing patterns that can range from simple lines to complex repeating shapes. We love the fundamentally organic style that results from this old-world, manual technique. The colors are simply stellar in these examples. Obviously, we love blue and these showcase the variety that's possible in our favorite color. Here we use reactive dyes, which represent the Shibori look. This version uses a super dark blue base with a bold contrasting white star pattern. Each is a treat to our classic shirting style for a truly fresh look.
This shirt is sewn up in our Classic Style. We spent the most time 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. 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 needlework to the locker loop to the box pleat.
Buttons downs that are made in the USA using our quality material and construction are typically priced much higher. The Gustin model, with your support, lets us do much better.
