The perfect follow up to the Navy Tangerine Neppy Plaid.
This style uses cotton twill from one of the finest mills in Japan. Sometimes shirting material can be a bit flat. It can feel great and have a great shade, but compared to denim, the texture can be a bit more bland. Not this time. Texture is what defines this plaid. A wine like burgundy and creamy off-white sets the base shade and the contrast of navy and hunter green gives a nice pop. In addition, there are neps dotting the entire surface of the fabric. It takes a simple fabric to the next level. This one is going in our personal collections.
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.
