When you take our vintage sweatshirt body and make it with short sleeves you have a versatile new garment. This is our Short Sleeve Sweatshirt. We start with our heavyweight, classic crewneck sweatshirt. Vintage to the core with all the right details and the perfect fit. The base fabric is a heavy French Terry that's built to last and beautifully soft. The short sleeves transform this garment into something that's perfect for a hike or those days where you need just a bit of warmth. We found ourselves reaching for these quite often and the value makes everything come together.
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 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.
