A beefy weight, a pale navy shade and a vibrant vertical grain combine in this perfect Japanese chambray. You can't beat the value on this style.
This style uses cotton chambray cloth from one of the finest mills in Japan. The perfect chambray is a wardrobe staple. You need all the right elements to come together and this chambray pulls it off. First is the heavy weight. At 7oz's this shirt feels substantial. Next is a muted navy shade - it's classic, but not showy. Finally, add in a prominent vertical grain and you get great contrast and texture. It all adds up to a must have, staple shirt. This is a highly versatile, wearable chambray at an amazing price.
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.
