"Nicer and more adventurous," please elaborate.

New shirt design coming soon via Gustin's IG.  Double chest pockets (button/flap) and unbuttoned collar.  Looks good, I would like some of the heavy flannels they have live now in the new design.

That is great. I hope the cut is a bit more generous, or at least shorter allowing people to size up for a boxier flannel fit.

agreed. i've avoided backing G's shirt offerings because I can't stand the button down collar/scoops look, especially on flannel.

Hard to capture the texture but loving the Japanese Multi-Stripe.

Just got an email today that they had to cancel my ISC Chino order. Apparently they had production quality issues and will not be able to deliver my pair that I ordered.

 

I was offered a $50 discount on something over $100 from their stock shop (or 50% off something under $100) as a form of compensation. I did receive a full refund on my first order but I was really looking forward to receiving those Chino's.

 

Has anyone else had their order canceled? I am pretty disappointed but the response from Gustin has been pretty solid.

I received mine, but I won't be able to look at the until thanksgiving. Hopefully, my pair did not experience any quality control issues.

I received my first Gustin button shirt today and I'd like advice from the community on fit.

 

In dress shirts I typically wear 16 collar, 34 sleeve, slim.  In casual shirts I usually can't fit in a medium due to my chest being too big so I am forced to a large slim to fit my chest but need a slim cut through the torso or it will be sloppy since I am fairly thin.  Often the larges have 17" collars which is a bit big and 35-36 sleeves which are a bit long.  But such is life in off the rack shirts and its better to have the sleeves a bit long than the chest a bit small.

 

Mapping this situation back to Gustin, I just tried on the new shirt which is a classic cut medium.

 

Feels like the collar is a 15.5", exactly matching the fit guide.  This is a bit tight and I couldn't do it in a dress shirt (buttoned with a tie) but this shirt is casual so I won't be buttoning the top and can live with it if it does not shrink.

 

Sleeves: perfect length.  Fit guide says 34.5".  I've not yet measured but from the feel they are right on-spec.  I could tolerate up to 0.5" of shrinkage and they would still be okay.

 

Shoulders: perfect, not yet measured but they feel right to spec, 

Waist: perfect, nice and slim, wouldn't want slimmer

 

Chest: this is usually my tricky area and once again its tricky.  The chest feels tight.  With my shoulders back I get a bit of pucker around the breast area and feel a bit of stretch in the armpit area.  Its tolerable, but marginal at best.  This is new without having washed.

 

A few specific questions:

(1)  Anyone have a comment on how the chest and arm hole area should ideally fit on these shirts?  And how to tell if the fit is right?  I don't have any other shirts with this high armhole style so I'm not used to the feel and am looking for guidance on how it is supposed to feel and what visible signs would confirm it fits or is too tight.

 

(2)  How much do these shirts shrink over time?  I always wash on cold and hang dry.  But if there is likely to be any shrinkage across the chest or neck this will definitely become too small.  I could tolerate 0.5" shrinkage in arms, torso length, or through waist.

 

(3)  If it sounds like the chest is too tight, any advice on what size I should try next?  It looks like the Gustin slim large has the same size chest as the classic medium so maybe it would not help with the chest and would just cause the arms to be too long.  The classic large would loosen the chest and neck maybe to ideal but cause the arms and waist to be a bit large.  Perhaps the classic large is my only option and if it doesn't fit then I just can't wear Gustin shirts.

 

Advice appreciated.

 

Thanks!

 

Took a few photos and posted below.  I circled a few areas where I can see that the fabric is tight and stretching slightly to accommodate my chest.  See the lines radiating out from the buttons and armpits.

 

After looking at these photos for awhile I think I answered my own question, ie that this shirt is too small in the chest, even pre-wash.  And I need to try one chest size up in Gustin to see if I can make it work, which might be impossible due to increase in other dimensions that will then be too large.

 

Comments and advice appreciated.

Really wish they used that striped woolrich fabric as a jacket lining or something other than the CPO.

How would people compare the fit of the Agustin slim or skinny denim to APC PS? I can see measurements obviously but always good to hear from people that have worn both.

@gustin

 

How about some more heavyweight tee's?  I've been wearing my indigo heavyweight on a cool fall day and I'd love to have some more for fall/winter/early spring.

We'll get more heavy tees out there. Fabric is a bit harder to source but we'll get it.

@joshgustin would you mind sharing a cuff measurement on the long sleeve Ts? I'd love to give it a try but the forearm looks really slim in the pics
post #7035 of 10345

I like the long sleeve t-shirts you just released, but will there be long sleeve henleys in upcoming releases?
