Stripes just add another level of complexity to an already classic style.
This style uses cotton Oxford cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. This oxford steps it up a notch while still giving you the versatility to pair it with just about anything. Stripes are great because they can easily be just as casual as they are formal, it all depends on how you dress them up or down. The slightly brighter shade of red mixed with the white stripes makes for a handsome shirt. The Oxford weave creates a great balance of shade between red and white to create a bold hue without being loud. This is a wonderful addition to your oxford collection perfect for those times when you want to dial things up a little.
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.
