A classic CPO using melton wool is the perfect companion for cold weather.
This Gustin CPO (Chief Petty Officer) is made out of melton wool from Canada. This style is a beefy 14.0oz wool. You really feel protected when you put this CPO on. It's a great weight to use as a stand alone jacket. Melton wools are know for their dense texture and this one certainly feels it. The surface of this wool is super smooth. The deep navy pairs well with a wide range of chinos and raw denim. This is just a super tough wool that's ready to last and keep you toasty warm in winter.
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 indigo chambray. This gives the garment subtle shadow and contrast. Small side gussets are sewn into the side hems, also from indigo chambray, 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 indigo chambray fabric. All flap pockets, cuffs and front are secured with brass 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.
