Another black watch plaid but this time it's a little lighter than the flannel we recently offered but still extremely supple and soft.
This style uses cotton cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. A traditional Scottish tartan that dates way back, this plaid has a deep blue base that is ringed by a deep hunter green and black. The colors work perfectly together and the overall shade looks great with denim of any shade. Coming in at a lighter 3.5oz weight, this twill is a bit more airy and will layer comfortably underneath your favorite jacket this coming fall/winter.
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.
