From the launch of our CPO's, this style has always been the most coveted and popular version. It's not hard to see why. The CharcoalXBlack Wool Herringbone CPO. The pictures tell the story. Enjoy.
This Gustin CPO (Chief Petty Officer) is made out of wool herringbone straight from Japan. The rich colors in this style combined with the weave make it a real stand out. A wool blend in heather charcoal comes together with a jet black in a classic herringbone pattern. The weave allows the black wool to darken up the overall shade and provide a shadow effect to the grey hue. The color variation in the charcoal wool keeps it lively. At 9oz's it's extra versatile. It layers without feeling bulky, while also being able to stand alone on a cool night. The feel is plush and the cotton component makes for much less wool roughness. It's the stand-out CPO.
As usual, attention to details on our CPO is an obsession for us. Significant flat felling is used throughout, from side-seams to shoulders to sleeves, for a clean finish and added toughness. The front placket, cuffs, collar and yoke all receive lining using a jet black herringbone cotton. This gives the garment subtle shadow and contrast. Small side gussets are sewn into the side hems, also from black herringbone, and secured with two bartacks. Another detail that adds both function and style. Pockets are a hallmark of any good CPO and something we paid great attention to. There are two symmetrical front chest pockets and a single pocket on the left sleeve that gives you a nice place to stash small items. Inside, you get a large side entry pocket from black herringbone fabric. All flap pockets, cuffs and front are secured with matte black snaps.
The fit is designed to be tailored while still accommodating light weight items underneath. The length is longer than our button downs. We recommend selecting the same size in our CPO as you wear in our jackets. You can size up if you like to layer with thick garments underneath.
