A tightly constructed plain weave fabric that is lightweight, soft and versatile.
This style uses cotton cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. This fabric is an end on end fabric, much like a chambray, this fabric gets it's heathered appearance from the alternation of white and grey warp and weft yarns. The end result is a fabric that has great visual texture up close but looks more like a solid color from afar. This fabric is also quite soft, it has a very supple and smooth hand feel. Coming in at a light 3 oz, this shirt is perfect for a warm day or layered beneath your favorite jacket on a brisk day. Lastly, this shirt is extremely versatile, it will pair great with your jeans, chinos or chino shorts.
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.
