A traditional plaid pattern, a wonderful array of blues and grays, and a neppy twill base - this is a sure-fire winning fabric from Japan.
This style has a winning combination - the pattern, weight and color palette blend together wonderfully to give you an update to something so very classic. It's hard to say what the dominate color is in this plaid, they are all equally distributed - from the punchy teal, steel grey, navy and light cement grey, the colors just work together. In addition to the traditional pattern and harmonious color palette, the neppy yarns give this style an added visual texture that makers this style that much more interesting. Coming in at 6.5 ounces, this fabric also has a substantial feel to it. This is a perfectly executed shirt will last you for seasons to come. It pairs nicely with denim and is a great weight to wear alone or layer with your favorite jacket.
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 tucked or untucked. 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.
