Formal styling roots, a perfectly tailored fit and rugged workwear fabrics - this combination is what defines the Gustin Vest. Today we're adding the quintessential, double black selvedge denim that adds the perfect sense of toughness for this new garment. This is the JetXJet Vest. Sewn right in the USA and offered at a value you'll be hard pressed to find anywhere else.
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 deeply saturated black warp and weft create a solid wall of color. The supporting details are all vintage denim - the 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. This is simply beautiful, solid Japanese selvedge denim and the rugged balance to our vest's more formal roots are ideal.
A vest is an historic piece, at first an integral piece of formal wear. It's popularity declined as two piece suiting won favor, but it never went away. Today it can take on a new personality as the perfect counterpoint to raw selvedge denim, the ideal way to lend a bit of formality to an otherwise rugged look. We start with a perfectly tailored fit, close to the body for a clean look. A single breast defines the front, while 4 patch pockets lend a touch of ruggedness and a nod to classic denim styling. Pointed front hems create a sharp finish, while a buckle back allows you to adjust fit further. Sewing is intricate with clean finishing throughout, even down to the interior hems, which are bound with black herringbone. Selvedge styles like this one get treated to a center back seam with selvedge running the entire length.
