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.

 

I disagree with the Gitman Vintage. The armholes on the Gustin L are about 10", which are very high in comparison to GBV. And it fits slimmer in the body and doesn't have the Gitman flare out at the bottom. In the past I've had to tailor the Gitman L to slim down the body, but the Gustins are ideal for me in that department. And the Gitmans are a bit longer.

Relative to other 'bardns,' I would say IMO, Epaulet > Gustin > Gitman. If Gitman L is slightly too baggy on me, Gustin fits very well, and Ep L is on the slimmer side.

I got a pair of Slim 33 Postal Blues that I'm trying to sell. They fit a tad big on me. Willing to let them go for about $75 (this includes shipping). PM me if you're interested.

Finally got my chambray shirt a week ago and it's already sold and gone.  Quality of the materials was good, but the workmanship was shit.  Would not recommend.

What's wrong with the workmanship?

Had to go in on the rainbow nep... just too neat to pass up.  Now I just wish I could get in on some greyxgrey's, pink ID, purple ID, etc.  I like the unique stuff.  31 slim... here's hoping it fits!

Thanks ibrig and partagras. Given that description, I'd probably give it a try, but cpaul does not make it sound good lol

seams were really crooked, not parallel to eachother.  loose threads everywhere, untrimmed.  looks like someone rushed the hell out of the sewing.

 

should've taken pictures but it's off to someone else now.

Sorry, looked back half a dozen posts and saw you didn't!

I'm in Canada and so far all my Gustin packages have been duty free so far (knock on wood).

One of three hit with VAT and charges so far. It would be the jeans that got caught too! Worked out about 30% of the price of the goods

Is getting jeans shortened by 4-6" a problem?

 

Mine came in, and I'm not sure what I think yet. The rise seems really high, the slim cut isn't very slim, and I would have liked to have sized down 1-2 more sizes, which unfortunately wasn't possible because the smallest size they make is a 29. I'll get them tailored and see how I feel about them.

Damn, really? Just how small are you?

After seeing how much my Heavy Japans have relaxed, i'm really considering going down a size. Anyone willing to trade a indigo/indigo size 32 for a size 31 (preferably another indigo/indigo)? Mlech415 (at) gmail (dot) com

After wearing them for a day, I'm warming up to them. The fit around the thigh isn't too bad... I don't think I could have sized down 2 and still fit my legs into the slims. I think a straight standard fit (instead of slim) in a 27-28 would be perfect. Slim in 29 is not bad with a belt. The other pants I have in rotation are Gap selvage slim jeans in size 28. They are quite snug around the thigh, but HUGE around the waist.

 

For size, I'm 5' 6.5", 125 lb, 28ish inch waist and I spend most of my free time running, climbing, lifting, or playing ultimate frisbee so I'm fairly lean. I apologize for the crappy photo. The lighting is poor, but the Blue Line2 is DARK.

 

Edit: A 27 in the standard fit would have a 20.5" thigh a 14" knee and cuff opening, and a 27.5"-27.75" waist that would stretch to around 29" which would have fit me just about perfectly
