The Gustin Engineer Jacket is back pure rugged selvedge form that happens to be one of our most popular double black selvedges ever - The JetXJet.
When you're looking for a change from the traditional indigo denim, our double black styles are the perfect answer. The JetXJet is a prime example. The deep black warp and weft create a solid wall of pure black color. The supporting details are all vintage denim - the ideal 13 ounce weight, nice amounts of starch for a crisp start and a subtle vertical grain. Icing on the cake is a bold orange ID which we highlight by incorporating the selvedge edge into the jacket construction. This is simply beautiful, solid Japanese selvedge denim. Paired with our Engineer Jacket, you have a style that can take on a rugged or slightly more refined personality depending on what you pair with it.
Our Engineer Jacket is an exercise in refinement and turning the crank until we had perfected each element. The first step was dialing in fit. We retain the classic roots of the shape while giving it a solid tailoring. The body is just right - fitted but not tight. The sleeves are clean and not overly wide, enhancing the sharpness of the silhouette. The classic point collar is there and we passed through countless shapes until we landed on the perfect length. The front hem bottoms are gently curved. We kept the classic 4 pocket front that defines this style and really lined up pocket size and placement. To honor the use of selvedge fabric and the tie in to this historic style we’re incorporating the selvedge in a few special ways. Some seen, other just for you to enjoy. There’s nothing better than seeing a long, “busted seam” with the selvedge edge. It’s the highlight for raw selvedge denim fans. We run this seam, unbroken up the entire back of the garment. You see it each time you reach for this jacket. Just for you to enjoy. On the outside, we incorporate the selvedge edge on the two small chest pockets.
