The Gustin Engineer Jacket - rugged roots, refined details, perfectly tailored fit and our favorite selvedge fabrics. This jacket represents the next step of our original Chore Coat to reflect even more attention to all the small things that make this style great. As always, it’s carefully sewn in the USA and delivered at a true value.
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.
For our launch, we're picking some outstanding selvedge examples. This is the Honey Brown Selvedge Duck. Think old-school Carhartt dialed up in every way the capture the iconic spirit of this jacket style. 15 ounce burly and dense duck canvas in a vintage honey brown color. This is serious fabric. Dense and rugged at the start, it feels like a fabric from a different era. You can sense how well it will wear-in and mold to your body. You'll earn it, but it will be well worth it. Finding a style like this in a selvedge composition puts it over the top. This one is tough to top.
