Image dump of Heavy Japan, Indigo/Indigo and greyxgrey

To clarify that last photo, i received the greyxgrey without a leather patch so I swung by the office to have one put on. It so happens that they had the veg tan leather patches in for the super heavys, so they put one on for me. A+ customer service these guys (and gal) rock!

Ohhh man! Love those! My heavy American needs to be broken into like that! How long did it take you to break them?

The photos of the heavy japans were taken at the 2+ month mark worn pretty much 24/7 no wash no soak. The heavy japans started out pretty darn stiff, but have now transformed into an absolute favorite

I've just backed the #69 blue x black in a slim 32! Will update when I get them! Also, will update on The Heavy American as they are been broken in atm...But, it's been too hate to wear them! Fall can't get here fast enough!

Wrote them an email asking about shirt fit comparisons to other barnds:

Hi,
I was wondering if someone would be able to compare Gustin shirt fits to
larger brands like Gitman Vintage, Band or Outsiders, Wolf vs Goat, J Crew,
etc.

Received a pretty useless reply as it doesn't give any real information beyond what I could get from the measurement charts:

The best way to find your fit is using our fit guide https://www.weargustin.com/fitguide. But if you would like to try on a shirt that is pretty comparable (but not exact) Gitman Vintage would be a pretty good option. Hope you like the shirt. Thanks for being a fan. Keep visiting our website and check out our new campaigns.

Are the Heavy Americans VERY stiff when you first get them?

I like that true indigo, really nice

post #489 of 622

I had the Indigo/Indigo backed but when I received my one-size-too-big Natural's back in august, I emailed to find out if they could change the sizing on the indigo/indigos for me. they said no. then they cancelled my order. 

 
now im waiting to hear back from them if they have any leftover slim 33's in stock (other returns/mistaked people made in sizing) to send me as replacement. I could do without the naturals but i really wanted the indigo/indigo's and those pictures above make me even more upset. so nice! oh well, just denim. i have enough.

Not really but I don't think they feel that heavy either

Thanks, I was wondering about the heavy Americans. I've been to the Gustin office on multiple occasions and gotta say, the Heavy Japans and Indigo/indigo are among the stiffest jeans in GUSTINs lineup. Great for fades, whiskers and honeycombs. I'll take more recent pics of the heavy Japans soon

Just got my 34 Straights; I didn't measure them with a tape before I put them on but the waist (claimed 35") felt pretty much as I expected (just tight enough to be uncomfortable right off the bat).

Got my Heavy American's yesterday. They are pretty stiff, heavy-ish, and feel of good quality. They were kind of damp in the priority mail bag, and smelled weird - but not a real big deal.

I got 33 straights, and really didn't pay attention to their sizing advice. I wear a 33 in Levi's 501 and 32 in 2012 Gap selvedge straights (a decent economy jean). The Gustin's were only a tad tight, and loosened up with some squats.

I'm disappointed with the cut. It's much looser in the legs than I expected, and the rise is higher than I expected. The new Levi's 504 fit and Gap selvege straights offer a better straight profile in my opinion.

I bought these just to check them out, but I'm not sure I'll put them into a regular rotation, which kind of defeats the purpose as they won't wear. These are probably destined for a pile in my closet...

Mine were stiff but not like 22 oz. NnF Elephant 2 stiff. I had a pair of those but since had sold it...Regretting...They feel heavier than any of my other denim.

Don't do it, man. Put them up on weargustin.com and I'm sure somebody would swoop them up at cost or do a swap for a pair of slims. You might want to size one up for a looser slim fit. You can also contact the guys at Team Gustin. When I was 30 lbs heavier, the 32's were way too tight on me. I emailed them and they said they will give me store credit. Since my weight lose, they have been a perfect fit.
