Introducing our Heavyweight Sweatshirt. Crafted from 13 ounce cotton, you will notice how substantial it feels the second you put it on.
This Heavyweight Sweatshirt is made from a heather grey cotton blend milled in Los Angeles. It's predominantly cotton but there is polyester in the rib to help maintain elasticity. The eye-catching fabric features a subtle weave of white and grey colored yarns and speckles of black. The textural element of this fabric is what we love the most. The surface has a soft hand because each sweatshirt is garment washed. The back of the fabric has a unique gabardine loop. Garbardine is a tightly woven fabric typically reserved for heavy garments like overcoats and uniforms. While it looks burly, it feels amazing when on. The fabric weighs in at a hefty 13 ounces, perfect for cool weather. This all purpose garment can be dressed up or down, and will look great paired with raw denim, chinos or any of our jackets.
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. Flatlock stitching along the raglan sleeves and body creates an extremely comfortable and durable seam which lies flat to the garment. Double needle stitching is used to attach the collar and "v" insert. 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.
