They are pretty similar to the 484s in the leg size a little bigger but it's quite close, especially after soaking them. The big difference is the front rise on Gustin Jeans gives you more space. Which in my opinion makes them so much better because that was a huge annoyance for me with J. Crew's 484s.

I d not agree at all. I own a pair of Gustin slim and they are on the baggy side compared to some straight fits I own and are far larger in the thigh, knee and calf than a J Crew 484

So...my first pair of Gustins arrived this morning.  These were from ebay, where someone both them and found that they wanted the slim fit.  They are 34 straight leg.  

 

The feel is like something from when I was a kid; dark and rough; I love the quality. 

 

I can button the top button, but that is about it.  

 

Is this the right fit?

 

I was thinking about bidding on another pair, but it is slim fit.  Since this is so tight, (I can't button the bottom two buttons) best I stay away slim and only do straight?

I haven't gotten my first pair yet, but you should be fine with a slim pair, they're very similar in measurements up top, they just get slimmer down lower. a 34 waist is still a 34 waist in slim or straight, so I say go for it.

Most Gustin demims will stretch at least 1" in the waist and hips. So give your jeans a few days to stretch out. If you are comfortable in them after stretching, you should be OK with slim, if not, then size up one. The only exception to this would be if you have huge thighs.

 

Also, check your jeans measurements. I find that Gustin's measurements can vary +/- 1/2" from spec. Measure your new jeans and compare them to Gustin's fit guide. If yours are small or sized correctly you will probably be OK with slim. If your are on the large side, then you might want to size up one for slim.

Got my blue gingham. The medium is a tad tight in the chest, but will be awesome once I reach my weight loss goal. I'm 6'0", 194 right now (athletic build with swimmer's shoulders for others' sizing reference).
post #1842 of 2983

Thank you for the replies.  I am torn between 34 and 35.  

 

I have been doing yard work in them all day, and after an hour or so, I was able to get the other buttons buttoned.

 

However..

 

they have gotten very dirty so I threw them in the washing machine, alone, on cold, and am now hanging them.  

 

Keep in mind:  I want them to stretch and NOT shrink.

 

Should I tough it out and put them on wet?

 

They were spun, and are now hanging.  (I rarely use a dryer on any of my clothes, anyway). 

 

I read that some have worn them wet for a few hours to make them stretch out or mold to one's body.

 

Is this necessary, or is there any other way for me to make them stretch out a bit?

 

After the cold water short wash (alone), I spinned them and now have them on...trying to stretch!   

 

Again, thank you for your patience.

Just got my trucker the other day. It is super cropped and this is coming from a guy who is 5'4. Mine is a size lower than my shirts and is very slim fitting so it might have been better to get a size bigger but it might fit better after I lose some weight. Very nice construction though and love the look.

I'm considering some of their shirts after really liking their jeans having just received a few pairs. Am I wrong in thinking the consensus is pretty much "meh" on them due to their agressive "scooped" sides? The fabric looks pretty nice. My only experience is with "fitted" dress shirts and t-shirts:) The "large" measurements (besides back length) appear to be similar to a standard fitted 16" collar shirt. Again, I have no experience with these types of shirts from the likes of Bananna Republic, J Crew, etc. which appear to come recommended and are fairly similar in price.Thanks. 

 

Edit: I was just concerned with some talk of how they better suit shorter frames with the arm hole placing, etc. I'm close to 6.1 @ 165 and wear 16" collars so I'll just go with the LG and see what's up. Backed the red and blue steel chambray. Lol, $100 for a shirt. This forum is killing me:) Damn they look nice though and are made in the US and not some hole in China. May I ask why you guys think these garner the price, just curious. Thanks.

I've seen many posts from people who claim their denim stretches out easier when wet, but my experience has been it stretches just as easy when dry, plus you avoid the yuckiness of wearing wet jeans. Good news is it sounds like you got the correct size :)
