This gingham is special. It is the tightest woven fabric we have ever offered.
This style uses cotton cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. While this style may look similar to others we've offered, it has a key difference: an extremely high thread count. Originally created for typewriter ribbon, this fabric is woven tightly, which creates an extra smooth and silky feel that feels amazing. While it is lighter in weight, at 4 oz, the tighter weave gives it's a sturdiness. This is high quality, great wearing fabric that you'll be wearing daily.
Our short sleeve button-up fits just like the long sleeve. It shares the same beautifully tailored body, not too slim, but definitely fitted. High armholes keep the body lines clean. A very gently scooped bottom hem that works wonderfully un-tucked or tucked. A no-button collar that’s perfectly sized to sit well. We removed the back pleat and locker loop, adding to the minimalist and casual nature of this style.
We labor over every construction detail. Extensive single needle stitching is used throughout. All our closures are made from true mother of pearl. 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.
Button-up shirts 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.
