@NotLouisMalle -If you ordered them a month ago you wont be able to cancel your order at this time. You're probably stuck waiting for them to come in anyway so I would stay the course and hope for the best.

Mnngh! I will try to wait for my first pair to see about fit first.

As long as you measured everything correctly you should be solid. I measured and remeasured and then measured once more to make certain. When I got mine they were spot on to the measurements on the site. So they felt about like I was expecting they would fit. I don't want to be a bad influence ^_^ but they really are great jeans, so if something comes along that you don't think you want to pass up I'd say just go for it.

Looking for suggestions. My ideal fit is probably somewhere between the slim and the straight. Really I'd need 11.25" thigh, 8-8.25" knee and 7.5-7.75" leg opening. I'm torn between going 32 slim or 31 straight and get it slightly tapered. I guess I'm just concerned about how narrow the leg opening is on the slims. If I go straight, at least I know I can slim it down however I need (at added cost). Also, for what it's worth I am 5'5" so I'd be chopping 3-4" at the hem.

kmitch,

I was in a similar situation, and I've kind of settled on 33 Slim (I have Gustins in 32 Straight, 33 Straight, and 33 Slim). I was also worried about the cuff opening, and the Slim really isn't that small of a cuff. These are definitely not skinny-fit jeans, even in the Slim fit. Another thing to keep in mind is if you cut 3" off the length, the opening is slightly larger as you move up the leg in the Slim fit, so it might be closer to 7.75" than you'd think.

Thanks a lot for the info. I'll probably stick with the 32 slim and see what happens. I backed the blueXblack instead of getting the 3sixteen shadow selvedge120x, so hopefully this works out.

I'd love to see a proper boot cut. That would be real nice.

I had no idea people still wore boot cut

I'm trying to understand the skinny or slim fit. I thought that went out with Poison and Motley Crue. Of course, those cuts are a prerequisite for entering coffee shop lol.

there is a big difference between a slim/tapered look and your reference. considering every quality denim manufacturer tends to make a slimmer profile and basically nobody makes a boot cut I think it is clear what people's preference is. I think Gustin would have an extremely hard time with a cut that has an even wider leg then they have today considering every request is for a more tapered profile.

I never understood a technical need for a boot cut in denim. I wear boots. I have big ass feet. Never saw a need other than if you prefer that for fashion.

Same here. The Gustin Straight cut will fit over harness boots and most cowboy boots. How big of a cuff opening are some people looking for? The Slim cut won't, but it's a slim cut. smile.gif No Gustin cuts are "skinny jeans" worn by the likes of Bret Michaels in 1986.

Lol. The straight cut is pretty close to perfect for me. I'm truly stoked they fit so well given the purchasing constraints. I remember trying on Levi STF's a while back and asking myself what the big deal was. I can't imagine the ole bag in the slim cut. Can't wait to check out the others. The straight cut with the cuff opening, etc. was a big selling point for me obviously. The Nudie's look pretty sweet (weird guy, etc.) but they all seam to have a more tapered calf and small cuff as others have mentioned.
