Tartan plaids are classic, colorfully sharp and sure to spruce up any casual ensemble.
This style uses cotton poplin cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. Tartan plaids have been around for centuries - they tend to be striking without being flashy and classic while still remaining relevant. The red, navy and green create a handsome base, all melding together harmoniously and the little pop of yellow adds a burst of brightness, rounding out this plaid. Being a poplin weave, this fabric is smooth, soft and delicate on the body - it's the perfect year round style. Wear it alone or layered under your favorite jacket, this is solid shirt you will wear for years to come.
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.
