How is the sizing did you take same size as your other pants?

Most of my pants are 42 and loose on me now. I did buy a few pair of levi 501, 505, and 514 in size 40. The Gustin feels tighter in the waist than those do. I know this is not the thread to ask but I was shocked to receive a few pair of Levis with the Cone Denim label sewn in....still stitched in Mexico. Still I found it surprising that a made in the usa fabric was used in a standard priced jean by Levi. Is that typical for them?

I'm not very familiar with that one. But the Gustin write up makes it a Classic Cone.
I'd think you should expect a good 1-1.5" in stretch. But it takes wear and time. So if they're a bit tight don't give up, most likely they'll be a good fit.

I'd think those Levi's weren't Selvedge Denim. Still decent Levi's but different.

I have no clue I just paid for my first pair of gustin rust canvas chino. And took same size that I normally take in all of my other pants & hoping it works out the same. First time purchasing them & once I get them & like them. I would get more, color is awesome though.

Not to be negative about your chances but I really feel like they do a great job with explaining their fit guide.  If your regular pants from a company like levi's or banana republic or something common say 36", its unlikely that a 36 will work for you in gustin.  Gustin's pants don't use much vanity sizing so the number of the size, i.e. 36, will be pretty damn close to the actual measurement of the jeans.  This is much different from a brand like levis where the size number can be 2-3" lower than the actual measurement.  Gustin jeans really will stretch a fair amount to accommodate your waist, but I don't think you can realistically attempt to make anything lower than your normal size +1 work (just my opinion from experience). 

 

This may upset you at first if you feel like you are going to miss out on a fabric you HAD to have but...

1.  They will run that fabric again faster than you would think, and

2.  You will find something else that you like just as much or more quickly. 

Just my 2 cents.  Good luck.

Hey thank you for this I guess I will follow,the guide I normally take size 34 waist on Jcrew slim Bowery & ludlow, Brook Brother & banana republic & was taking same size in gustin chino. According to the size it has 35inch waist. So,figured why not. But I will measure my pants tomorrow to be safe. And thank you for your input.

No not selvedge cor sure though they do make some just up to size 38. A month ago the tag would have meant zilch to me. I try to buy as much made in USA stuff as possible so when I saw it I recognized the name from the Gustin offerings.

Thanks for the info on the 1968s

Does anyone know if the Chinos have any shrink/stretch? I have a 32" waist, so not clear if I should order 31 (measuring 32") or 32 (measuring 33" and expect shrink).

According to the size chart they have inch or so to give after breaking them in.

 Not really, I would order up and hit them in a dryer if needed.  Both pair I have on regular wear and wash haven't really stretched at all.  I manually stretch the waistband sometimes when they are wet, it doesn't do much other than prevent them from shrinking when drying (a hair).

 

Great chinos, awesome construction.  Highly recommend.
