Yeah, I think it depends on your waist. My friend has a 29 slim, and they are much slimmer through the leg than the 31slim is. But the slims are by no means a "skinny" cut. Baggy might not be the right word for the straights because they aren't anti-fit in the top block, they are just way too voluminous at the bottom. Which is totally a lot of guys preference, of course.

Hi Everyone,

 

We just started an affiliate thread for Gustin here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/365731/gustin-official-affiliate-thread

 

Happy to answer all questions. 

 

Thanks.

 

Josh

After about 6 months, I soaked my Slim fit, Heavy Americans and they've now become ball crushers...:crazy:

I had some reservations at first, but I've actually discovered that I really like the fit of the slims. They are definitely a slim fit, but they have just enough material/give in the right places that they don't restrict movement at the hips. I forgot my gym clothes, and was able to go rock climbing in mine.

I am a bit worried about the reports of them shrinking, because I got mine shortened, and could really only lose 1" max on the inseam before they look kinda funny.

Just got my Heavy Americans in the mail about four days ago.

 

I'm a 32x34 in Levi 501s (not STF) and I went with a 33 Slim. I chose this based on the measurements from my current favorite jeans.

I know I'm supposed to size down but I had a bad experience with my first pair (Nudie Average Joe DDOs) going too small.

 

I love the quality and feel of the denim and after about two full days of wear they have broken in quite nicely. Hopefully they don't get too loose.

 

I'll be sure to drop updates on how they wear.

Yes. They will do their best to credit you. Sometimes they have your size in what your ordered. If not, they will let you know what else is available.

I can also clarify how we handle exchanges. We know finding the right size in a new brand is really important. If you're domestic, we look for a similar style to swap for right away. Given that we hold very little inventory a swap may not be possible, so we'd give you a store credit so you can back a new style in the right size. For international orders we offer a store credit.

The surface also remains smoother, with less pilling, after wash & wear.
I guess to put it simply, loop-wheeled sweats and Ts age much more gracefully (& slowly) IMO.

about 75% of brands that say their fabric is "loopwheeled" are either flat out lying or don't know what loopwheeling is.
The machine itself is quite rare, extremely slow, and is finicky in the way it works. True loopwheeled fabric is extremely strong, soft, and can be very very heavy.

Flat Head seems to own a chunk of whats left of those rare machines

 

 

also, heres a short video on a collab between loopwheeler x nike

loopwheeled t-shirt and sweatshirts seem to go for a absurd $200+ via Flat Head

 

just a little research ive done, please add anything i've missed

post #583 of 622

Any info on how frequently they cycle in new campaigns? Looking to jump into the Gustin waters (or jeans lol), but the current offerings aren't blowing me away as some of the previous campaigns have done.

 

Also, is there any way to get a sneak peek as to what future offerings will be? 

 

Thanks for any and all assistance!

post #584 of 622
It's about every 4 days or so.
post #585 of 622

Cool, thanks!

 

I'm really hoping they bring those gray silks back...extremely interesting design in my opinion.

 

Does anyone have any experience with them?
