I wear a true 31 but when it comes to RAW I down size to 30 because of the stretch it will takes over time.
What size should I take then ?
So you've measured your best fitting pair of jeans and they measure 31" in the waistband? Based off my other Cone Mills selvedge denim jeans you're probably expecting around 1" in stretch so you should get the Gustin pair that has 30" waist. Also the denim is sanforized so you do not need to account for shrinking. By raw they meant untreated with any washes or distressing. Unfortunately they only have 29.5" and 30.5", I would probably go with size 30 to be safe based on the following fit guide:
If only a good shoe maker would do this. Can you imagine? Hey, everyone, we'll sell you a boot with Horween CXL, Blake welt, for $150, but only if enough of you pony up to make it worth our while...
Glad to hear about more cuts. I jumped in for a $50 pair on Kickstarter after Stephen from Gustin contacted me to see if I was interested in covering their launch on my website. He seems like a real good guy and I hope more American brands consider direct sales without the high markups. Here are my other thoughts (with pics): http://www.theamericanist.com/gustin-american-made-selvedge-denim-for-about-80/
Waiting for exactly this. It says they needed $40k for more fits, and now that they have it, I'll be looking for a slimmer cut with a lower rise. And maybe a slightly thicker leather patch.
