We've explored the world of indigo chambray thoroughly and we've found one that is particularly special. This indigo hemp blend from Japan is a great addition to your shirt collection and the price is in the ranking for the best value we've ever offered for any chambray.
This style uses cotton chambray cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. A classic weave, using indigo neppy yarn is what makes this a stand out chambray. The weave on this fabric is tight, which brings out the medium indigo shade in the warp. A crisp white weft adds a touch of brightness to the fabric and the white neppy yarns add a beautiful visual texture. At a solid 5.5 ounces it's both substantial and wearable. This is go-to, long wearing chambray at an absolutely tremendous value.
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.
