The charcoal oxford is our favorite, second to the blue oxford. It was only fitting that we offer it up in our short sleeve shirt.
This style uses cotton Oxford cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. This is the same style fabric as the Japan Blue Oxford but in a deep charcoal shade. It's the same beefy weight with great texture. This Oxford will pair nicely with a lighter blue selvedge all the way to classic dark indigo. When you think about oxfords, there is no better representation than this fabric. Coming in a little heavier at 5oz, it isn't too heavy for summer, it is the perfect substantial weight. This is another perfect summer staple that you should have in your closet.
Our short sleeve button-ups fit 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.
