I am a bit larger than you, but I will give my advice based on my experience with Gustin denim.Overall the waist will stretch about 1 inch after break in. Most recommend you get raw denim to fit pretty snug when new, so that your jeans will fit "just right" after break in.So for you, it looks like you need to decide between Gustin 30's or 31's. The 30's should stretch out to about a 31.5 waist, and the 31's should stretch to about a 32.5...
I had originally posted my thoughts on my first pair of Gustin's in the other Gustin thread, so I will follow up here. I have no QA/QC issues with my jeans, so I will not address any of those issues. I am pretty new to selvedged denim, just as an FYI. My first pair was "The Thirteener" in straight cut, size 36. I was waffling between 35 and 36, but decided to go with 36. They arrived, and I was very pleased with the quality of the jeans, but the fit was "perfect" out...

I just received my first pair of Gustin jeans, and wanted to share my experiences. I do not have a lot of experience with selvedge jeans. I have one pair of Levi's 501 and APC new standards. I ordered the #53 Thirteener, in June. I opted for size 36, based on measurements I took off of the Levi's and APCs. (Levi's are tagged 34, and APC tagged 35) Shipping was scheduled "sometime in August" I received shipping notification this past Tuesday, August 27, USPS Priority...
I find that using a double four in hand gives a decent knot on my Drakes madder ties, I also use a DFIH for Drakes tussah silk ties. Traditional FIH knot for the Madder and Tussah gives a very small/skinny knot, DFIH gives it a bit more heft.
