Meet the updated Gustin Trucker. We made it truer to the original form and added great new details. From two side entry single welt pockets, to chambray lining, to a larger inside chest pocket - it’s all dialed in just for you. It's still tough, timeless and made in the USA.
For this new version, it was a no brainer that we would return to the fabric that started it all for the trucker. To us, that means the fabric has to be beautiful from the start and age gracefully. Nothing matched our desire more than waxed canvas. This style uses waxed cotton duck from the United States. It has a plain weave and is a solid 13.5oz to give it good body but not feel too stifling in jacket form. The base color is a rich, deep brown. The waxed coating makes things much more interesting: the fabric ages uniquely to you, just like a finely tanned leather. Each crease, each bend, each event in your life changes the texture and color. It scars and marks as the wax gets rubbed and displaced, becoming slightly lighter in those areas. It’s truly a thing of beauty.
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 side entry single welt pockets on the side and double flap pockets up top. Each flap is secured with our custom Gustin hardware. We also enlarged the interior chest pocket so that it can accommodate larger phones or wallets. Another new addition was the chambray lined cuffs and pockets bags, it just adds to the comfort of the garment. 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.
