We've been looking for a special indigo shirting fabric for a while. Now we have it straight from Italy.
Our button downs are designed to be the perfect compliment to our denim. They share the same dedication to classic American styling, a perfectly tailored fit and obsessive attention to detail.
This style uses cotton chambray cloth from one of the finest mills in Italy. This is one of more beautiful shirting fabrics we've come across. It has a rich, vibrant indigo shade with subtle texture to make it more complex. The deep indigo shade is enhanced via a double dip process. The fabric receives a second indigo dye dip right before completion which gives it the saturated appearance. This will age wonderfully as the color starts to fade. It's a solid 5.0oz and has a great soft hand. This is nice enough to pair with some blue or a great grey pair.
Our fit starts with a beautifully tailored body, not too slim, but definitely fitted. High armholes keep the body lines clean. 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.
