Love at first touch. That's how we felt about this all-American canvas the moment we touched it. Next we decided to transform it into a super-clean, incredibly wearable Field Jacket. There's no better way to cap it off than offering it at our best Field Jacket value ever.
If you can't tell yet, we really love this fabric. It works in a Trucker Jacket, it works as chinos. That says a lot about what makes it so great. It perfectly fits the styles we love because of how it manages to balance a touch of refinement and ruggedness. The tight herringbone weave is classic and lends a nicely formal look to the surface of this fabric. From a distance you just detect a subtle texture running through the surface. As you get closer you see the classic herringbone pattern in greater detail and the full amount of depth and complexity it adds to the blazer. The substantial 10 ounce weight adds heft while a naturally soft feel makes this unstructured blazer fit and feel outstanding. Finally, this version uses pure jet black color.
Fit and construction both lend our field jacket its unique style. You’ll notice the care and attention to detail throughout this jacket. Defining the overall spirit of the jacket is the large stand collar that flows down into a nicely drawn-in waist, giving our jacket it’s iconic look while making it clean and well tailored. Four large snap closed cargo pockets sit on the front body, two on the chest, two above the bottom hem. All are sized to be functional while staying true to this jacket’s roots. We spent a lot of time on the small details on this jacket that really make it special when you put it on each day. A perfect example are the cuffs. Intricately constructed, they can be secured in two positions with custom Gustin hardware via a triangular tab. Instead of a simple cuff slit, we sew in a gusset, which makes going unbuttoned at the cuff a beautiful option as well. Another special detail is the main body closure. You get a large YKK zipper along with button closures, that when used, are nicely concealed under a placket to keep the front clean. Huge bar tacks provide separation and reinforcement along the placket. Inside side seams are clean finished with chambray binding while an inside chest pocket is sewn in for additional storage.
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.
