A luxuriously soft twill using pure organic cotton is transformed with technique to create a truly special style. These are the Tufted Circle Shirts.
From start to finish this will be one of your most special shirts. The base is an ultra soft twill that is woven from pure organic cotton. The five ounce weight and softly brushed surface give this style true comfort and all year usability. The color is classic and solid. Now comes the key upgrade. A large format, organic circle pattern covers the surface. A jacquard weave is used to create a thickly tufted and raised character to the circles. It's a completely fresh take on pattern. Bold in texture without being over-the-top in style. We like it.
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.
