Adding variety to your Oxford collection is always a good thing. When it's a heavy Oxford cloth from Japan in a bluexblack, you can be assured it will take a prime spot in your rotation.
This style uses cotton Oxford cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. We have never run an oxford that didn't have a white weft, this is a very interesting look and a totally new hue. The blue is a nice deep dark navy that almost resembles indigo. Coming in at 6oz, it's a solid weight - not too light and not too heavy. Sometimes you just need to change it up a bit. It has a nice formality to it and goes quite nicely with raw denim.
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 tucked or untucked. 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.
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.
