Hey guys, so ever since I've lost 30 lbs. my size 34, 1967, LVC is too big in the waist for me for about 1.5 inches to 2, and I had the same problem with my size 30, Civilianaire. I was pretty bummed because I really like those jeans. I was thinking about selling those two until I had the crazy idea of hot soaking them both and now, BOTH OF THEM HAVE SHRINK TO FIT MY SIZE 31/32 WAIST!!! Well, the size 34 LVC is still about 1/2 inch too large in the waist but that's not a big deal. So those of you who are facing the same issue of having your favorite pair of jeans a bit large in the waist, just do a hot soak, hang dry and your jeans should shrink a bit in the waist! Pass it on! I'm super stoked!!! :fonz:

Definitely post some photos of the flannel when it comes in, I think everybody here would appreciate it. They don't even have to be fit-pics necessarily, just photos of a complete shirt would be awesomely helpful.

No problem at all. As soon as it arrives, I'll post some.

I don't have a completion date from Gustin though so it might be a few weeks.

Not sure about the Civilianaires but the LVCs are unsanforized, so it would make sense that a hot soak would shrink the denim sufficiently to accommodate 30lbs of weight loss.  The sanforized denim that Gustin is currently using will shrink a little but not as much as the LVC's...

Actually both my LVC and Civilianaires are sanforized. My whole point was a hot soak could take care of those extra 1 to 1.5 inches of slack. For example, my size 30 Civilianaires' waist were so large (around 2 inches too wide) that when I wear a belt, the extra fabric would make an ugly fold around the groin area. After a hot soak, problem no more!

What does any of this have to do with Gustin?

Well, I've read folks were selling their Gustins for ill fits. So, I'd thought I'll share my experiences. I also shrink my Heavy Americans that way for a better fit in the waist. My point was before you jump the gun on selling your favorite pair of jawnz may that be Gustins or Iron Hearts for being a bit large, you can shrink unsanforized jeans with hot soaks. Another member did say the shrinkage might not be permanent so I would have to report back with results.

Where is the sick fadez dudes?!?

Josh and Stephen, I want to lobby Gustin for an additional fit. I find the Straight a great fit from the thigh up but too full in the leg. I much prefer a look with a tapered cut but without going slim or skinny. If you could go 1/2 way between the Straight and Slim- Thigh, Knee and Cuff Opening measurements, leaving the top alone, that would be ideal. It would offer more shape than a Straight cut. Trim but not extreme. Ideal for guys, like me, that need room in the thighs but like a tapered, cleaner look.

How about it? Can you try a new fit on an upcoming campaign?

seconded. They should really just look at the Levi's 508 and try to offer something similar, that would be awesome imo. A carrot fit!

Don't listen to these guys. Actually, do listen to them, just come out with slim button-fly chinos first.

Thirded - would love this fit as a biker and weight lifter it is difficult to find jeans that fit my thighs and also have a good tapered slim fit below the knee.

I hear this a lot from bike riders, weight lifters and guys with naturally fuller thighs.

Tempted to fourth (?) this request, but I wonder if a minor slimming of the straight fit might be a better option than a new cut altogether (particularly at sizes 33 and above). Moving from a 32 to a 33 takes you from an 8.5" hem to a 9", which is a pretty substantial increase. I'm usually a 31 or 32, and was tempted to go up to the 33 for the thighs, but didn't due to the hem. For me, something between 8.25-8.5" is ideal. I wouldn't be surprised if the hem sizes on the 33 and up are causing a bunch of your market to hesitate.

Of course, I don't have access to your sales data, so I might be totally off the mark here.
