Our obsession with textured chambrays began a few months ago and we've been on the hunt ever since. We finally found our newest love in this butter soft Japanese style.
This style uses cotton chambray cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. Two things really jump out - the feel and the texture. This is probably the most buttery soft chambray we have laid hands on. It is simply incredible. It's dense at 5.5oz, but also has an almost gauzy softness to it. You won't want to take it off. After the touch, comes the texture. This chambray uses high slub yarns which not only gives it great texture, but also gives it an intensely visible white grain. Neppy spots through out the surface give it even more character. The shade is a deep indigo. This is chambray at its finest.
Our fit starts with a beautifully tailored body, not too slim, but definitely fitted. High armholes keep the body lines clean. 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 $250 to $300. The Gustin model, with your support, lets us do much better.
