Long sleeve tees are something that we love to wear year-round. Combing a great fit with a super soft finish, these tees can easily stand on their own or make for a perfect layering piece for the cooler months ahead.
We start with our classic crew neck, long sleeve fit. It's tailored and comfortable. We then sew it up in our 5 ounce, USA-knitted tri-blend jersey. This fabric has become an absolute favorite. It's incredibly soft and really the ideal weight. What's cool about these tees is that they all start off in heather grey. We then overdye them to create a beautiful palette. Each is rich and saturated while keeping the wonderfully complex heathered look we love.
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 are fitted, but not so tight that they restrict movement. The cuffs end where your palm meets your wrist, just where you would expect.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.
Quality t-shirts made in the USA with domestic materials are typically priced over $35 each. The Gustin model allows us to offer you a radically better value.
