This is the last Pendleton Merino Wool we have managed to find for you. A classic mini houndstooth pattern and subtle moss green pair together nicely and as always, it's the best price you will find out there.
This style is made out of 100% fine micron virgin wool from Pendleton Woolen Mills in the USA. If you're looking for the finest wool, Pendleton tops the list. When we considered using wool for our traditional button down, Merino was the clear winner. It's prized for suppleness, a non-scratchy hand and the ability to retain heat without being too warm. This fabric style is particularly soft, it drapes wonderfully and is ideal as winter button down. Coming in at 7oz - it is practically wrinkle resistant and will layer nicely under any jacket. The blending of moss green and cement grey in a classic mini houndstooth pattern, make up an interesting and not too overbearing color combination that will go with almost anything you decide to pair with it.
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.
