A dark base with bright shots of color make this plaid special.
This style uses cotton poplin cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. We are typcially drawn to more brightly colored plaids to pair with our denim, but this black base shade version made us reconsider our ways. At 4.0oz's, it's slightly beefier than our standard plaid and it has a nice dense feel. The pattern is very classic and colors just work. The dark base is lifted up by bright reds, creams and thin white lines. The result is a solid combination of dark and light that still pops with your favorite pair of jeans.
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.
