We always suspected our trucker would look extra sharp in a black fabric. This all-American canvas confirmed it.
All of our truckers so far have been made from waxed canvas. We needed to find a fabric as substantial and beautiful before we'd be satisfied in running a non-waxed version. This dense 12.0oz black duck canvas felt just right to us. It's woven right here in the USA (North Carolina specifically). It has the perfect balance of toughness and wearability. This fabric has the substantial feel and great texture you see in heavy weight duck canvas, but it also breaths well - making it wearable even when it's warmer out. Additionally, we pre-wash it to soften it up even more. Overall, this jacket just feels great on and drapes well on day one. As you can see in the pictures, it loves to be worn with grey denim.
The overall style is inspired by the classic Type III Trucker Jacket. We give it a more tailored body and add a bit of length in the sleeves so it doesn’t ride up. It's designed to hit right at the waistline for a compact look. It has two full hand pockets on the side and double flap pockets up top. Each flap is secured with our custom Gustin hardware. We also added a few functional pockets. A small carry pocket on the right side provides quick access to a place to store your phone and an inside chest pocket lets you tuck away your wallet. Two side buckles on the waist band are secured by custom buttons. Extensive flat felling is used on seams and all pockets are clean finished.
Jackets like ours that are made in the USA using our quality of material and construction are typically priced at $260 or higher. The efficiency of the Gustin model, with your support, lets us do much better.
