We are big fans of plaids and when they are brushed to a super soft, buttery feel, then we love them even more.
This style uses a brushed twill cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. The combination of black, charcoal grey, white and pop of cobalt blue meld together wonderfully. The color combination is perfect for denim and chinos alike. The feel is incredibly soft while the 7oz weight gives it good body and a substantial feel. This is one that we all would like to get our hands on.
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.
