The perfect color combination for fall, a herringbone weave and a plaid-- it's hard to ask for much more from this amazing shirt from Japan.
This style uses cotton cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. This fabric has so many amazing traits, it's hard to choose a favorite. It starts with the weave - from afar, this style just looks like a plaid but once you get up close, you see the intricacy of the herringbone that adds an extra layer of complexity and texture. The combination of burgundy, navy, heathered charcoal and a light grey work together beautifully in this plaid, creating a the perfect color palette for fall. The best part is that this shirt will look great with denim or chinos, we love that versatility. Coming in at a lighter 4oz, this shirt will layer perfectly under your favorite jacket this fall/winter.
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.
