Either way, this is my first pair of raw denim -- when reading the sizing, it mentioned about an inch of stretching in the waist after the 'break in' period.  With my Okayama Standard's, I am able to button them all the way, but it is indeed snug.. not as bad when standing but when sitting it is a little uncomfortable.  Everything else appears to fit well (thigh, knees, cuff, etc.)

 

So I guess I'm just making sure there will indeed be stretching and hopefully I won't be that uncomfortable for too long =]

 

Or, in this case, would you suggest going up a size?

 

Do squats! Just wear em in and they should break in and stretch

I got my American Sixteeners last week -- also the first decent jeans I've ever owned. They barely buttoned when I sucked in my gut and shimmied. I was concerned.

Three or four days' worth of wear later (coupled with dampening them slightly in the tighter regions and wearing around until dry) they're rapidly becoming my favorite pair of pants. Stick with it. Hope your 16ers show up soon!

Too tight on the crotch.

Literally the only issue I have with my Gustins is this, I really have to wear them low on the hips to avoid it crushing my sack.

It took me a while to get used to this "low-rider" hip-wearing thing as well. They felt weird with the waist lower than the usual 12"-13" rise jeans, but once you embrace it, you'll learn to love it. lol8[1].gif I kept trying to pull them up, but with a 2" lower rise, it isn't going to happen.

The fabric is very thick and beefy. I'm thinking of selling my size medium blue plaid oxford. The shirt is brand new and has not been worn. PM me if interested.

Cool, thanks for the info. I appreciate the offer, but I take a large in the shirts.

Exactly where jeans are meant to be worn. nod[1].gif

Hey guuys here's some picture of the Japan umbers that I posted last night stating I was selling.  They a size 35 straight fit.  I think the actual waist is around 34.5, but I have included a pic as I am not the best at measuring.  Also a pic of the jeans next to some thirteeners and a broken weave, as everyone likes to see how jeans are breaking in after a few washes and about 25 wears.

 

Jeans are 102 shipped CONUS.   

 

Have a good weekend

Just FYI, Ya might want to pull the waist tight and then measure to get the proper waist measurement.

I came to Gustin via 501 STF. Compared to my 501's, the Gustin straight fit felt really low, and I kept trying to hike up my jeans. Finally I got used to the lower rise. I knew I was OK with the lower rise, when my dress pants' waists felt like they were coming up to my chin :) Then I switched from Gustin straight to slim (with even lower rise), and it felt great! The lower rise just takes some getting used to.

Can a good tailor taper jeans? A need for different sewing machine? On the sell edge se?

This is possible, although some tailors will refuse to taper from the inseam due to the flat felled construction. However, they can taper from the inseam and leave the selvedge intact, but it will make the selvedge wider from the middle

Not necessarily. There are different ways to measure jeans.

EXACTLY! And the "dress pants at your chin" analogy is spot-on! lol8[1].gif

If flatspotting and aikiman44 go to the Gustin website and look at the various fit photos, they'll see what the jeans look like. If I'm not mistaken, the "model" wearing the jeans is Josh Gustin himself. The jeans look pretty damn good, and not like they are falling off his ass. So even though you THINK they feel too low, they are exactly where they should be.

However, with such a low rise, sitting becomes a choice between strangled crotch vs pants riding halfway down your butt.
