There's nothing better than a summer chambray: warm, mellow color, breezy weight, supple softness that all come together to create a wonderful shirt you will want to wear all year round.
This style uses cotton cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. To date, we've offered up over 50 different chambrays, but we've mostly stayed on the heavier or even super heavy side. This is the perfect iteration for the warmer months. It starts with shade. This is a delicate, creamy khaki shade because summer doesn't always mean bright and punchy when it comes to color. A light 3 ounce weight and a supremely soft and supple feel will keep you comfortable on those warm days. The weave is super fine, but you still see a slight cross hatch grain to remind you of the durability this style offers. The best part of this style by far is the all-around versatility it offers because of its shade and weight, there isn't anything you can't pair this shirt with.
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.
