post #2506 of 3527
I had a pair of Okayama standards size 30 in the straight fit and I found it to be too baggy for my liking. Gustin kindly allowed me to return the pair for either store credit or an exchange for a slim pair of jeans.

I've been hearing a lot about the low rise of the slim fit and I'm just wondering if I should size up to a 31 for them? The straights in size 30 fit me perfectly around the waist because of the high rise. I could button it up fairly comfortably as soon as I got it (didn't struggle much to get the top button done up, only a tad because of the stiffness of the button hole) which might have meant that it was the tiniest bit big.

I'd love some advice on this, perhaps from someone who owns both a straight and slim Gustins and could tell me about how the waist fit differs and if it would be worth sizing up for the slims.

Nuckinya,

Keeping in mind sizing is totally subjective, I have one pair of Gustin jeans in 32 Slim, one in 33 Straight, and several pairs in 32 Straight and 33 Slim. The 33 Straight were definitely too baggy, and loose in the waist on me. The 32 Slim are Grey Silks, and they fit perfect after about 1 day. I was hesitant to try a 32 Slim, but they seem okay. I think I'd stay with 33 Slim in the heavier denims (over 15oz). I don't notice the rise difference that much. In the size 32, the rise difference between Slim and Straight is only 0.76". I can't believe anyone would really notice that.

I also don't wear my jeans skinny tight. If I can't button all the buttons as soon as I get them, they are too tight for me.

It sounds like you could go with a 30 Slim. You sound like you're in a similar situation as me, and that's why I think I'm going to try another 32 Slim.

I have a number of Gustin jeans in both 30 straight and 30 slim. The top block on both straight and slim are nearly identical except for the lower rise on the slim. Although the slims sit lower on the hips, it's not enough of a difference to merit sizing up. You should go with 30 slim.

In regards to the conversation about the rise of the jeans, I personally don't believe that the rise of Gustin jeans is lower than other high-end denim brands. I've owned many pairs of Diesels, 7s, etc. and I find the rise on my 35 slims to be perfect. For reference, I usually wear 34 in those other brands. I think people that are finding the rise of these too low is because Gustin might be their first exposure to high-end denim due to the accessible price points, and they are simply not used to the cut yet. IMO, I think the lower rise is quite stylish on denim.

This is silly ... low rise cuts are not limited to "high-end" denim brands.

Ive seen a lot of people lately say the straight fit is too baggy, are you referring to the leg opening? or the thighs? I think the thighs have pretty tight measurments for the straight fit, but I have brought up the argument plenty that the leg opening is too wide - almost more of a bootcut than a straight fit, if that is what you mean.

Is there any pattern or schedule as to when the grab bags are? Also, are chinos every mixed into any of the grab bags or do they have their own or something?

I think the straight fit is more or less perfect for what it is.

However, I would love the a slim-straight fit with the same above-the-knee fit as the straight but with a tapered leg. The slim fits me well enough but I vastly prefer the rise and slightly roomier thigh on the straight from a style and comfort point of view.

Agreed. I think there is enough of a variance between the cuff openings of the two current fits that they could make that happen w/out cannibalizing sales of another fit.

I believe the Gustins are going to be offering the Super Heavyweight this month.  I missed out last time on it and The Twenty Six (which I don't think is being offered again) and don't want to miss out on it again.

 

I am not always at a computer, so when the email goes out, I still may miss out. 

 

Any chance we might get advanced notification?  

 

I am hoping that the flooding of The Twenty Six satisfied enough customers' desire for super heavy denim that this time the offering (23 ounce) won't go out too quickly!

So, I just received the organic chambray backed in early May. To my shock one of the buttons snapped off on my first wear. Makes me totally sad, the fabric is awesome and the sewing is pretty good quality. I hope they start using better buttons.

I assume you contacted Gustin before you posted this.
