Is it just me or does the field jacket look incredibly flared in the waist, almost like it's a womens jacket?
post #10067 of 10340

- Sleeve cuffs on the field jacket are terrible. No way to tailor/shorten that except from the shoulder (expensive).

- Where are the side pockets?

- Why are the shoulder measurements so small? A medium has a 16.5", which is basically XS in most brands

Thanks. Crossing fingers

Interesting.

 

The fit of the Field Jacket should be perfect for my build (husky/athletic).

 

Even the sleeve length will be more suitable than some of their other jackets.

 

Slightly flared at the waist will be better than a tight (City Coat) fit for this purpose. It looks like a perfect Fall jacket; good for layering.

 

I would buy two colors if I could (so, navy for now).

 

A waxed version would be a nice addition to this new series.

Agreed, I feel like field jackets should be waxed or be somewhat water resistant.

Will be passing as I have too many jackets of this style right now.

I love how the field jacket looks, but the sizing is kind of goofy.  I wear a large in their chore coat, and the large in the field jacket doesn't seem to really line up.  Sleeve length and chest size for the large are going to be too small, and the XL too big, I think.

I think the look is great, and haven't cared for this brands other outerware offerings. Didnt check out the sizing. I dont need any more jackets right now and by December I
will need something much heavier.

Love that Duck canvas, but the dk brown and slate chinos will just have to wait...

 

(Still haven't had all the other Gustin Chinos I've purchase hemmed. lol)

 

A hemming service would be invaluable, and truly set Gustin apart.

Really bummed and disappointed that they are offering the 16oz Cone Natural Indigo for cheaper than the their first release... If I would've known they were going to get the 16oz (which is what I was initially eyeing), I would've waited frown.gif(((((((

If I'm believing the tracking information, my Okayama Standards will be here tomorrow!  Trying to decide if I'll take them to Japan with me Sunday...  :satisfied:

I like the fit of the field jackets. Shorter sleeve lengths, thank god. I have to wear a L in everything gustin because they make the bodies so fitted, but my arms are not that long

post #10078 of 10340
I'm digging all but one of the measurements on the field jacket - the shoulder is at least a full inch too small
post #10079 of 10340

The L1 fit is perfect, except for one very important part... the sleeves. They're approaching 2" too long. Altering that leather won't be cheap. Hoping there's some kind of "molding" effect that may happen. There's really no good reason I can think of (other than accommodating those with longer arms, of course) why they shouldn't be 35".

 

The City Coat is much closer for me, only about 1" too long in the sleeves (given the style).

 

I imagine the field jacket material will stretch a little, but I am also so thankful for the 35" sleeve length. In this more outdoor, casual style, I'm not as concerned about slightly long sleeves.

 

"Get to know a good tailor," sure; but most people are so used to off the rack fitting. I'll say it again, Please offer custom tailoring. It may even bring in more customers. What's a few extra dollars, and an extra week or two wait, when you know it will fit, right?

 

For instance, I cuff selvedge denim, but am far from a 36" inseam. (I keep getting asked if there's a flood... LOL!) Thankfully, Detroit Denim is supposed to be good and not outrageously priced.

At least it's an easier part of the jacket to get tailored.

We're (SF) not most people. Offering custom tailoring sounds like a headache to me.
