The Grey Ember Flannel is one of the most popular (and softest) shirts we make, so we weren't surprised when our friends at Saintsbury Winery
asked us to make them a batch for their harvest season.
This batch of Grey Embers will come with a little something extra for our viniculturally-inclined customers - 15% off any purchase from Saintsbury. We'll send you the details on how to redeem it after the campaign closes.
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 flannel cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. It has a traditional plaid pattern that combines rich grey coloring with fiery red highlights that peak in a pure red center square. It reminded us of glowing embers of coal. We selected a buttery soft lighter weight material as we're not ready to fully accept winter and like a fabric we can layer. We pre-wash to enhance the feel and to reduce shrink. This fabric just begs to be worn with a crisp dark pair of jeans. We'll be the first to try it.
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.
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.
