What is the purpose of a shirt gusset?
The gusset acts as an anchor of the shirt.
How to tell a Pink shirt from other shirts
The signature of Pink is a mark of strength. It’s the pink gusset that, in the traditions of shirtmaking, reinforces the side seam. Think of it like an anchor: when you raise your arm or make any sudden movement with the side of your shirt, the triangle helps hold everything in place. The triangle has been the signature of a Pink shirt since the company was founded.
The Pink signature reflects the nature of the shirt itself: it looks effortless, yet it actually takes time and effort to perfect. It’s a gusset that’s attached from underneath, folded into the French seam. It’s stitching that has to be done blind, with only the cutters’ skill to guide them.
As with everything, Pink believes it’s worth taking this extra effort to create a side gusset that’s neat and elegant, a signature that’s assured and that shows to the world this is a shirt with the craftsmanship of Pink.
