Ancient Japanese Shibori dye techniques are masterfully deployed in this fabric to produce an organic combination of color and shape. Today it's the Starburst.
Shibori dye techniques are thought to date back to the eight century in Japan. As a class of resist-dye methods, fabric is tied in various patterns to allow dye to penetrate certain areas and not others. In the USA, we call it tie dyed. The hallmark of the technique are flowing patterns that can range from simple lines to complex repeating shapes. We love the fundamentally organic style that results form this old-wold, 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. This version uses a bright white base and layers on a colorful burst of blue.
Our short sleeve button-up fits just like the long sleeve. It shares the same beautifully tailored body, not too slim, but definitely fitted. High armholes keep the body lines clean. A very gently scooped bottom hem that works wonderfully un-tucked or tucked. A no-button collar that’s perfectly sized to sit well.
We labor over every construction detail. Extensive single needle stitching is used throughout. All our closures are made from true mother of pearl. 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. A rounded chest pocket completes the front.
Button-up shirts 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.
