Truckers were born in denim. We've focused on waxed canvas in the past, but now it's time to get back to this jacket's roots, with this bold and bright selvedge from Japan.
Gustin Trucker made from sanforized raw selvedge denim from one of the finest mills in Japan. When we ran this style in the jeans, we knew that it was destined to also be a great vehicle for the trucker jacket. This fabric starts with a solid foundation - a bright indigo warp and a crisp white weft. The weave and yarn take this fabric in a totally new direction. The weave is very open, allowing for weft show through like we rarely see. It creates intense brightness, where the white weft is almost as powerful a color as the blue warp. Add in extra slubby yarn and you get a streakiness almost like the Pima Fires. There is graininess throughout the surface. This is denim with a look you don't see every day. A very cool red/white/red selvedge ID makes it that much sweeter. This is a great jacket to give your collection a bit more pop- and the best part it looks great with any type of denim. We are finishing it off with our gold jeans thread, giving you that classic trucker look.
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.
