A textural dobby weave, a lofty soft surface and a color combination that is bold but not loud and perfect for Fall - meet your new favorite winter button down.
This style uses dobby cotton cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. This fabric has it all - a supple, soft hand feel, a vibrant fire engine and black check, combined with a great dobby weave that makes it just a bit more unusual. Coming in at 5oz, this is the perfect shirt to layer or wear solo with your favorite pair of jeans in any state of wear. This is a style that has all the makings for a wonderful fall go-to shirt.
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.
