13.5 oz Cone Mills Selvedge, Made in San Fransisco, and only $81? Kickstarter - Page 31

Looks like my Japan Standards are leaving SF shortly which is pretty quick.

can anyone comment on the fit of the oxfords compared to gitman?

I just ordered a pair of the heavy in a 34 straight, but only because there was a $20 deal. The deal is still available, if anyone is interested I can post it up. The deal is we both get $20 off if someone orders through the link I have. I will definately wait till I get mine to see if I'll be buying another pair. I currently have a pair of Tellason/Filson jeans in slim fit that I wear, but I'm not very stoked on. Hopefully the fit isn't too similar...

I backed the Blue-Hunter Gingham shirt.  The material and pattern look fantastic.

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 Mail. Jeans arrived on Thursday, August 29. The packaging was underwhelming, literally, the jeans were folded, and stuffed into a Priority Mail envelope, no box, no tissue paper, nothing. I quickly got over this, because the quality of the jeans is great. Again, my only experience with this type of jean is APC, but the Gustins hold their own as far as the quality of the denim, and construction. I really like the half lined back pockets, I believe this might prevent rapid wear at the bottom of the back pockets due to wallets etc.

I tried them on, and decided, I should have gone with the 35's, I was back and forth when ordering, and wanted to ensure I didn't get something too small. The fit is really good, not snug right out of the packaging so if they stretch out, they might be a bit baggy. If I order a second pair, they will be size 35. The length is a little over the top, I am 5'9" with about a 30" inseam, and will need to roll two or three times to get the length right.

Overall, I am very happy with the quality to price ratio offered by Gustin. Wtth respect to the belt discussion, I do not have a Gustin belt, but my Narragansett Leathers belt ($48) will look great with my Gustins and Alden Indy boots.

I am considering another pair of jeans from Gustin, and am very interested in their shirts as well, if the quality/price is similar, they should be a great deal.

Also, I have not worn the jeans yet, so (just throwing this out there) if anyone has a similar denim from Gustin in 35, and was wishing they sized up to 36, I would consider a trade. PM me if that's the case.

We're about the same size and I went with the 35s, took them about a month to stretch out. I'm glad I went with the 35" waist because I know the 36 would be too loose after break in. Good luck finding a trade.

My Japan Standards arrived today, duty and tax free too. It's going to be a treat breaking these in. Which leads me to this question for those already owning a pair of Japan standards, how was the stretch/break in with yours?

Anyone interested in a #2 Organic Indigo Slvg. Chambray, labeled S but measures as XS? Only washed, not worn. I love the shirt, but it's too small for me.

I've had my Sixteeners for about three weeks now and damn, they're awesome.  Had a pocket rivet pop off on the first day (looked like the shaft and divot were about 1mm off of being lined up with each other when they were pressed together during manufacturing), but i didn't mind.  I figured if i'm going to wear them like mad, it'll add to the eventual character of the jeans and quite honestly I didn't want to part with them for about two weeks while they were being repaired (Gustin customer service offered to put a new rivet in for me).  Otherwise, they are clearly better than my Naked & Famous, most noticeable in the belt loops, buttonholes, and a more perfect selvedge edge.  And at CDN $101 factoring in international shipping and exchange they were still 1/3 less than N&F.

 

For a fit comparison, I take a 32 in Naked & Famous Weird Guy and 33 in Naked & Famous Skinny Guy (yeah, their fits are sized differently).  In theory I might be able to go one waist size lower on each but N&F's thighs are a bit tight and the next size down in either fit would be too tight in the thigh.  Gustin's slim fit has a bit more room in the thigh than either but isn't baggy, so I can get a perfectly fitting waist size for my shape.

 

And one last word of advice for those wondering about fit:  Read the fit guide on Gustin's website.  Don't skip it.  Measure your best fitting pair of jeans (do NOT measure your waist), and choose accordingly, taking into account a 1" stretch.  You'll be glad you did.

Thanks for the review. What size did you get in the Gustin slim fit?
post #461 of 622

anyone know when the Blue line 2 will ship? When I backed my pair they said I will have them in Aug. It is now September.

post #462 of 622

Timbaland:  Thanks for the review. What size did you get in the Gustin slim fit?

 

Argh.  Can't believe I forgot to include that.  They're Gustin 33 slim.  Just a tiny touch roomier in the thigh than the two sizes of N&F I referenced in my post.  The Gustins provide that little bit of extra room in the thighs without forcing me to go a size too large in the waist, as I'd have to do with N&F for the corresponding leg fit. 

 

Hope that helps.

Does anyone have a fit comparison between their slim fit and the Unbranded 201? I wear 34 in Unbranded, wondering what size I should get..

post #464 of 622

34 Unbranded 201's fit just about perfect for me. I have bigger thighs/ass and don't like my jeans painted on, so I went with 35's in the Gustin slim.   I'm hoping they're not too big; I'll post when I get them in October.

A quick update, my straight fit Japan Standards are breaking in nicely, much more wearable in the space of a week. I had a hell of time with my pair of Cone Mill broken weave. My belt has just been dispatched so it should be arriving in two weeks going by past experience.
