A classic plaid pattern, a wonderful winter color palette, and a heavy brushed twill base - it's tough to go wrong with this shirting from Japan.
This style uses cotton brushed twill from one of the finest mills in Japan. This is not your standard brushed twill. The pattern, weight and color combination come together wonderfully to give you an update to something very classic. The white base, hunter green, deep navy and a pop of yellow create a nice balance of darks and lights. A classic plaid pattern brings them all together to create a timeless feel. The beefy 7 ounce brushed twill give this shirt a very substantial feel.
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.
