We love chambrays, but we love the highly textured versions even more.
This style uses chambray from one of the finest mills in Japan. Sometimes shirting material can be a bit flat. It can feel great and have a great shade, but compared to denim, the texture can be a bit more bland. Not this time. Texture is what defines this chambray. A deep navy sets the base shade and the classic chambray weave gives you nice white brightness. It gets much more interesting. This style is extra slubby, with the irregular yarns creating great texture on the surface. In addition, there are navy neps dotting the surface of the fabric. It takes a simple fabric to the next level. This one is going in our personal collections.
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.
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.
