There is nothing like a great chambray and when it comes to the most unique and beautiful chambrays, Japan tends to be number one at creating them.
This style uses a hemp/cotton blend cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. We like chambrays, we've offered so many I guess you could say we like them a lot. It starts with shade. This is a light powdery blue shade that has a great level of saturation. The weave is super fine, but you still get a great deal of the white weft showing through, adding visual texture with a few neps here and there. A light 4 ounce weight and a supremely soft and supple feel will keep you comfortable on those warmer days and make it easy for layering on the colder ones. The best part of this style by far is the all-around versatility it offers because of its shade and weight, there isn't anything you can't pair this shirt with.
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 always. 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.
Button 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.
