We love a good herringbone and we get especially excited when it's an indigo dyed herringbone.
This style uses cotton twill from one of the finest mills in Japan. We've come to be huge fans of the herringbone weave. We love how the herringbone enhances the shade on this style. The warp is a bright, pure indigo blue. It's a few shades lighter than a traditional dark indigo which makes it pair nicely with jeans. A crisp white weft is equally prominent thanks to the herringbone weave and provides great contrast. Another interesting quality is the slight neppy character, it lends an organic feel to a very technical pattern. Coming in at 6.5oz, It's on the heavier side so it will certainly keep you warm but it isn't so heavy that you can't layer it. This fabric is truly a work of art.
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.
