Summer is coming, so we thought we thought we'd offer you one of our favorite lightweight plaid poplin fabrics in our new short sleeve shirts.
This style uses cotton poplin cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. This plaid has it all - pattern and color. What really jumps out are the wide channels of white lines running vertically and horizontally. They serve to brighten up the overall look. The colors are spot on. Rich midnight blues mix perfectly with white squares. Vibrant red lines run in pairs to give this shirt an extra pop. We pre-wash to enhance the feel and to reduce shrink. This one is great with denim or our chinos.
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.
