In my experience the quality of construction on the shirt was poor and I wouldn't buy another one given the additional costs of shipping and tax. If I lived in the US I might think differently

Noted and we appreciate all the feedback from this community. We try to act on as much of it as we possibly can (button placement definitely included). Just wanted to make sure you knew it was an option.

 

Thanks.

Still loving the jeans tho! biggrin.gif
Edit: I'll email you a couple of pics of the shirt just for reference

Agreed about the shirts quality.  although it was the first chambray shirt they made, maybe that was the issue.

The shirt was sold unfortunately, should've taken photos of the issues.

 

Looking forward to the sweatshirts though.

I have a pair of slim Gustin Slate. The fit a bit snug in the waist, but I know that will break in soon. They also fit great on the calves but the problem is that on the thigh, it's about .5-1" too big. I def like the more slim fit look all the way down.

Should I soak them so they can shrink? If I do, what's the best way? Not sure how that will affect the grey color.

I would soak them in hot water with Wool Lite Black for an hour then rinse and hang dry. That has worked to shrink my 34 down to a 31, 32. Some members said they will stretch out back to their original size. That has yet to happen. But YMMV. Try it. What's the worst can happen? The soak will not affect the grey color.

Going purely from their size charts (My orders are still being made) that was something I noticed as well.  The size chart had the gustin slim about 1.5" bigger in the thigh than any of the other brands I own or have tried for a slim/tapered cut.  I am really curious to see what this does to the look of them, especially as I do have thinner legs... I guess I shall find out some time in December!

Speaking of thighs...

 

I just threw down for my first Gustins, the #81 Cone Pima Fire.  I used a  pair of Gap Slim's (hence the reason for upgrading to Gustin) that fit well as a reference. They are 31x32 with the following measurements:

 

Waist 31.5"

Front Rise 10"

Thigh 22" (if I"m measuring correctly, see pic)

Knee 15.5"

Cuff 14.5"

Inseam 31.5"

 

I have some meat on my bones, esp. the thighs. I would like to say this is because I'm a cyclist, but I suspect it's more due to poor genes, lol. I would like to go with the slim cut, but concerned about the thigh area. Any recommendations out there? Play it safe with 31" straights, or go for the 31" slims? TIA.

I wanted to thank Cody and the gang at Gustin for some great customer service last Friday.  I got to stop by and exchange an oxford, try out a different jean size, and change the sizing on my grey silk order.  It was also cool to see all the different runs of jeans.  Keep up the good work guys.

Most of the Gustin Jean denims stretch about one inch in the waist during break-in. So if you want your broken-in waist size to be 31.5, you should order size 30. It will arrive with a 30.5 waist, which should stretch to 31.5 during break in. In order to get a 22" thigh, you would need to go with the straight fit. However, if your Gap Slims have enough slack in their thighs, then you could try the slim fit. Your thigh measurement pic looks OK to me. See the example in Gustin's fit guide for more info.

So wear them for a bit, stretch them and then soak?
Soak them laid flat in the tub, inside out?

If fit is more important to you, I would first try them on to see how they fit and wear them for a few days just to see how they would fit before soaking them. Then hot soak them as they will shrink just a little bit. Soak them inside out, it doesn't matter if you soak them flat. I soak mine in a bucket all crumpled up. The thighs should shrink about 0.5 inch or so. The waist might be a bit snug if it fits you well now. But after wearing them about a few days, the waist should stretch out to your size. Again, other members have said the shrinkage won't last long. But I haven't experienced that yet. Again, YMMV. But what's the worst could happen? You end up with a pair of clean jeans and will need to stretch them out? If the fit is off and you are very anal about the fit, you can always get them exchanged with Gustin. It won't hurt to email them. Cheers.

Josh Gustin: Thanks for doing the Cone Pima jeans, very nice! :fistbump:

would love to see more of that wonderful long stape cotton... Especially in the heavy oz club--> about 18oz range.

:D

Is there any update on the Rainbow Nep that's suppose to ship late Oct/early Nov? Seems as though some people received almost 2 weeks ago, but I'm still waiting for shipping notification.

A little frustrated since the last one I ordered shipped almost 3 weeks late. I don't mind playing the waiting game, but once it's past the initial shipping date, I wish Gustin would do a better job of updating their customers about a new date or at least provide more transparency about production delays. I'm just trying to nail down a fit before ultimately deciding if their jeans/fit works for me.

But I do appreciate the work/biz model of Gustin.

Hey CFunk- we're working on getting better at communicating.  For November and later shirt/jeans orders, we're working to get out weekly production updates.

 

Your rainbow neps are being picked up from the factory on Thursday, and should be in the mail no later than Friday.

I'm interested in entering the world of high end denim and think that Gustin is a good starting point and maybe more. I would like to give your company a try, but am worried that even if I follow the sizing info on your site things might not match up. What options would I have in that scenario. The return policy on your website is not exactly encouraging.

 

Thanks for your help.
