A brushed yarn dyed twill to keep you warm for the upcoming Fall months.
This style uses cotton cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. A deep, dark color palette all wrapped up in a warm, cozy brushed twill plaid - it doesn't get any better than that. The heathered midnight blue base is accented with white and rust orange vertical and horizontal stripes, making this a plaid that can easily be worn to work or on a casual outing. The best part about this fabric is how soft it is, it is so buttery soft you'll think you were wearing a pajama shirt. The weight is a solid 4.5oz, heavy enough to wear alone on a brisk day but easily layerable beneath a jacket for added warmth.
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.
