The perfect plaid that just screams Fall/Winter, introducing the Vintage Persimmon Plaid.
This style uses cotton twill from one of the finest mills in Japan. To us, it's about the color palette and feel. This vibrant combination of colors pair wonderfully. The combination of the slightly faded persimmon orange, maize yellow, black and tan come together in a lively way - it is striking without being loud. The weight is a standard 4.5oz and the surface is slightly brushed, creating a soft and supple feel. All together, the color palette, easy layering weight and soft feel create a solid shirt. This shirt will pair just as perfectly with a pair of crisp raw denim as it will with a pair of your worn in favorites.
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.
