Bill, you in the UK? Did you get hit with customs charges?
Sorry, looked back half a dozen posts and saw you didn't!

It does take a while, but they do stretch out nicely. Have 3 pair could not button the top button on any, but now they fit great.

Just got shipping confirmation on my Postal Blue's! This is my first pair so I am looking forward to checking them out. I think it should be a unique denim taboot

Got my size L selvedge organic chambray. Fits slightly larger than an Epaulet L, if that helps anybody. Very nice construction for the price.

Anyone able to comment on shirt fit compared to Gitman Vintage?

I emailed them on the 4th, and got the response:

Thanks for reaching out. The last batches of jeans are being inspected and trimmed now. Shipping will spill into Sept a bit, but we don't want to rush anything out that hasn't been fully reviewed. Apologies for the delay here. You will get a ship notification when your jeans go out.

Thanks,

Just got my first pair in the mail - #62 Japan Regular

 

I ordered a 34, but shortly after (and after getting my first pair of selvedge - 3sixteens), emailed them and change my order to a 36 (stinking athletic thighs). It seemed ok on their end and they confirmed the change, but unfortunately 34s showed up today.

 

Soooo....I'm not messing with sending them back so these are available. I will snap some photos and post in the marketplace later, but thought I'd throw them out there in this thread if anyone is interested and not wanting to wait.

I've been wearing skinny/slim fit 31's from Levi's, Gap, J Crew, Banana and I've been overall pretty happy.  I know, I know, let the flaming begin.  However, I really want to try a pair of selvedge.  The Gap selvedge premium slim 31/32's I have right now fit really well, but they're obviously not raw selvedge.  I measured these as a base.

 

Looking at going with Gustin slim.  Based off of their measuring guide, the 31's that I've been wearing are more like 33-33.5".  Factoring in that the waist stretches about an inch, I'd want something that is a 32-32.5" waist, which Gustin says 32.5" waist = 32 marked sizing. 

 

What should I do?  5 foot 11, 160lbs.  Do I go with the 32's... which are 1 size up from what I buy off the shelf at most stores?

 

Will this same logic apply to APC? Unbranded? Rogue Territory? 3sixteen?

 

Thanks!

I'm 160 and 32's are actually a bit too big on me. I would go with 31 and stretch them out an inch. APC, Unbranded, RT, and 316 all have different fits. Which ones were you referring? I have a pair of Unbranded tapered legs, size 33 and they fit a bit on the regular size vs. my LVC 1966 Rough Rinse which has a more tapered leg. I had a pair of APC petite standards in 31, I think, and they are super skinny compared to my Gustin, slim 32's.

I received my Postal Blues today. These are my first pair of Gustins. Overall I am pleased with them. The denim is a bit of a different color in person than I was expected; it is close in color to the 3Sixteen denim with more white showing through. It will be interesting to see how it fades. The construction is pretty good although there are more loose threads in various spots than I would expect. The denim itself is nice but no where near the premium brands to me. I think for the price point they offer a huge value ratio but I do not find them comparable to other brands I own like Baldwin, Rogue, 3Sixteen, etc.
