Old school defined with the addition of a rare slub yarn for texture. These are the new Vintage Slub shirts.
Taking classic styles and dialing them up is what Gustin is all about. That's why we love these shirts. They take a fundamentally iconic style and make it fresh and bold. It starts with the pattern. A vintage extra large check pattern lends the style a rugged look. The colors bring this pattern life - bold and deeply saturated. This version is defined by a metallic titanium. This color is nicely balanced by dark checks. The colors are classic but just different enough to make them special. Finally, a very rare slub yarn runs throughout the fabric. You get an incredible vertical grain running through the surface which adds a level of texture and interest you rarely see in shirting fabric. A loose weave keeps them flowingly comfortable. This is classic shirting done right.
This shirt is sewn up in our new Rugged style. It's designed to be the perfect style for our heavier, more rustic fabrics we run. It's a bit more casual, without being over the top. This style is really set off by two key design cues: a perfectly sized collar without buttons and two clean button closure, rounded chest pockets. These two elements lend the style it’s more casual look while their clean implementation keeps the shirt versatile. A simpler back yoke replaces the box pleat and locker loop of our Classic style. Small gusset tabs adorn the bottom hem and intricate stitching tacks down the collar stand. The Rugged style inherits the same core fit block from the updated Classic style. The moment we sewed up some flannels and heavy jacquards in this style we knew it was right.
