A tight weave, solid weight and a handsome plaid create the makings of a great shirt at an exceptional value.
This style uses cotton cloth from one of the finest mills in the USA. This yarn dyed plaid is is the perfect companion for your fall wardrobe. The yarn and weave is really what sets the stage for this style. At a substantial 5.5 ounce weight, the yarn takes on a smooth and slight rope-like feel. The weave is also very tight. Add the two together and you get a significant feel that is also incredibly soft and smooth. The color is very grey, stone blue, it's powdery and subtle. The best part is the price, we are getting this fabric at an amazing price which means you are getting a high quality shirt for a steal!
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.
Buttons 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.
