post #2896 of 4112
I recently received my first Gustins. #37 Super Light. Love the fabric and quality and details. Really gutted I ordered the Straight instead of Slim, though. What was I thinking?

Are you a measured 34 or do you typically wear 34s? I ask because I'm a measured 34 and wear 32s when vanity sized (with a tid bit of room).

Here ya go.  About a year of wear, maybe 4-5x a week.  One wash.  Unfortunately I haven't been able to wear them for the past month or so because the crotch is close to blowout and I need to get it repaired (you can see it in the last pic).

Can anyone help with a question about alterations on my Gustins?

 

I want to get mine tapered as I ordered the wrong kind of fit. The tailor I went to told me that he will remove fabric from the inside leg, to maintain the selvedge. That makes sense.

 

However, he said he can't maintain the seam on the inside, which has a nice visible orange thread:

 

 

 

He told me it's only possible to create a new seam like the outside leg, where the stitching is invisible and inside.

 

Is that correct?

 

Or should I be finding a better tailor who is able to reproduce the original seam?

 

Any help much appreciated.

Hey!! I did couple of my jeans, only do it from outside so you dont lose the selvedge, and make sure you match the measurements with your existing favorite jeans, look at these pictures done on LVC Levis 501, if you look at the cuff fold you will see the broad selvedge fold. These slimmings or method were very popular in late 70s and 80s by heavy metal stars!!!!

Many thanks for your quick reply.

 

My tailor said he has to do it from inside, because he needs to cut the fabric to taper the leg. And if he cuts the fabric he will lose the selvedge.

 

I like your idea to keep the extra fabric and have a broad selvedge. That didn't occur to me. The fact that there's some heritage/authenticity to using a broader selvedge makes me feel better about it.

 

I think I'll go back and have a quiet word with my tailor. Cheers mate.

Received 3 pairs of chinos-slim fit, same size fit as their jeans (33). Gustin, why do you insist on making a 6' 165 lb guy feel obese?!:) Really bummed these are so small as the quality/look is superb. I usually wear the straight fit jeans and these are borderline skinny fit on me. They're so small it's immediately apparent when unpacked. Waist is closer to 33.5" or even 33" (with no future stretch). They feel every bit as tight(er) as their (33) jeans let alone a shirt tucked in. Could barley even button. The kicker of course is the next size up is 36" inseam which is not an option for a 6' guy in chinos. Tailoring seems a bit ridiculous for chinos if I went with 34's. Size up on the chinos folks and probably opt for the straight for a "slim" as another poster mentioned. 

 

Also receivied the trucker in waxed dark oak (lg-see not obese-something goofy in your sizing:) Totally in love with this waxed canvas. Looks to be really nice quality and fit as well. This was my first trucker and I was a little skeptical on the sizing being too short in length/arms but it's really close to perfect. Toss up between your chore in waxed charcoal and this. Love it.

I'm confused.  You got a slim fit in the chinos when you wear a straight in the jeans, and you're surprised that the same size fits slimmer?

 

 

Related question for anyone who has ordered both jeans and chinos: are same exact sizes pretty comparable, even given the stretch/no-stretch differences between jeans and chinos (I ask because I normally wear a 30 slim in the jeans and they're pretty great after some minimal stretching -- ordered the same thing in the chinos but they haven't gone into production yet and I don't want to end up with a chino pant that fits like the jeans do)

Check the fit guide...the sizing is different between denim and chinos. For example, size 34 denim in straight fit has a 34.5 waist, 11.25 rise, 24.5 thigh, 18 knee, and 18 opening. A size 34 chino in slim fit has a 35 waist, 10.1 rise, 26 thigh, 16.75 knee, and 15.75 opening.

I wear the straight fit in jeans, because the thigh opening on the slimmer fits is too small for my legs. I was considering buying a slim fit chino since it appears to have the extra room in the thigh that I need, but the smaller cuff opening that I prefer.
