If you were to look in the closet of any member of the Gustin team you'd see one thing in common: a big stack of heather t-shirts. They have become something of a uniform for us. It's the combination of the super soft hand feel with that rich variation in color. It's a winning combination. This pack goes way beyond just grey to give you a huge variety of color while keeping everything we love about the heather t-shirt. Rich, deep blue, a dark army green and an oxblood. It's touch to ask for more.
Fit is much more important on a t-shirt than you might think. We set out to strike the right balance between a tailored fit and an easy to wear piece. The shoulders are fitted, which keeps the overall look clean. The sleeves hit at just the right point on the arm and are tight enough to prevent them from winging out. The body is slightly tapered, but easy enough to not be mistaken as an undershirt. Finally, the length hits just right so it falls below the waist line, but does not cover your entire backside. Overall this shirt can stand alone or layer with a button down.
Construction details are classic and sturdy. We start with an inset collar using rib. Neck and shoulders are taped, which adds effort to construction, but provides an extra touch of structure to the garment. Double needle hems finish the sleeves and bottom and a slightly narrower gauge is used to lend a small element of refinement. This is the right way to make a t-shirt, without cutting any corners.
