Some garments are best when they look like you've owned them for 10 years. Our new Ocean Sweatshirt is a perfect example. We use a pigment dye process to create a truly vintage look that gets even better over time.
The USA Pigment Dyed Ocean Sweatshirt is made from 100% French Terry cotton milled in Los Angeles. At 9 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 was each sweatshirt. The top surface of the fabric is luxurious and smooth while the long looped bottom surface feels amazing when on. Finally, the color of this garment is what we love most about it. We call it Ocean. The base is a sea blue but the pigment dying process casts a grey shade. It's a beautiful color that looks like it's been worn for years.
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 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.
