Small check gingham in a beautiful tonal color combination.
This style uses cotton Gingham cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. Instead of the very standard white-on-single color checked pattern, we found a beautiful style in multiple shades of red. A rusty red square is paired with a lighter salmon red resulting in a very nice tonal look. We also opted for a super small check to give it a slightly finer look. It's a lighter weight as compared to our beefy Oxford and has super soft hand feel. We pre-wash to enhance the feel and to reduce shrink. Another sweet denim companion for the summer.
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.
