Vintage American sportswear with the addition of the classic chest pocket. It's an instantly recognizable garment, made completely in the USA and offered at huge value.
This Gustin Sweatshirt is made from French Terry milled in Los Angeles. At 12 ounces, this style is great for layering during winter or thrown over a T-shirt on a cool summer evening. It's remarkably soft because we garment wash each sweatshirt. The top surface of the fabric is luxurious and smooth while the tight looped bottom surface feels amazing when on. Comfortable and understated, you will be reaching for this garment every time you leave the house.
The fit of a sweatshirt is very important. 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 body is slightly tapered, but roomy enough so that it's superbly comfortable. Finally, the length hits just right so it falls below the waist line, but does not cover your entire backside.
Construction details are classic and sturdy. Raglan sleeves create a great fit through the shoulders Double needle stitching is used to attach the heavy ribbed collar and ribbed "v" insert. Make no mistake, this inserted v shape is not all for show. It's a utilitarian feature that reinforces the collar by overlapping an additional layer of rib material. The added support will keep the collar from stretching out, even after years of wear. Vintage 3" ribbed cuffs and waistband contribute to the old-school appeal and supply even more durability. This is the right way to make a sweatshirt, without cutting any corners.
Quality sweatshirts made in the USA with domestic materials are typically priced over $75 each. The Gustin model allows us to offer you a radically better value.
