Happy to see that as well

I'm likely to sit out until the first long sleeves are delivered though b/c I still have some hesitation around the sleeve/forearm/cuff sizing. The pics look super slim to me and this has been an issue for me in other brands.

Yeah, I hear ya, and they do look like slim fit/athletic cut which doesn't work for everyone.  I will probably give them a shot depending on the Henley material

On the subject of "athletic cut," I'm actually curious about others' opinions on the fit of the tees. I have a couple in size medium that are great in the chest/sleeve/shoulder, but they're too long and boxy around the midsection. Maybe I should have gotten a small? I typically do better with athletic fitting things (I have broadish shoulders/chest and a slim waist) and I'm having a hard time with Gustin tops in general due to this. That said, I haven't tried a M slim shirt yet which might work, though it would be too long to wear untucked and I'm also not a fan of the scoops :nest: .

One more crack at their denim for me.  

 

Postal Blue Ordered, sized up 1 in slim this time.

Their tees and button downs work fine for me in classic medium, but the sleeves on the long sleeves look especially slim. I'm assuming Josh is the model in the pics and I believe he is a 31 slim in their jeans and a small shirt at around 6' (read: very thin - and certainly more so that me). If the sleeves are that slim on his build than I'm afraid they would be unwearable on mine.

 

My build is mildly athletic but one place I tend to run into issues is sleeves on truely slim cut clothes (styleforum standards). This is also a measurement where sizing up usually doesn't make a big difference. For example, the sleeves on a medium reigning champ hoodie are skin tight on me. I can wrestle with the sleeves on a large to sorta make them work but it's a pain, and the extra length looks off.

 

All that said, I think this could be a problem for my specific build and not representative of a pattern issue. It's just a bummer b/c I'd really like to give their long sleeve Ts a try

That's helpful, actually, thanks. If Josh is indeed a 31 slim denim and a small shirt, I should really be paying attention to the pics because that sounds like my sizing, too (though I'm only 5'10"). @joshgustin, maybe it's been asked before, but maybe you could add something like "model is 6' 160 lbs and wearing size small" to the product descriptions where appropriate? I've found that helpful on other sites but I could see how that could be misleading, too.

 

It makes me think I just incorrectly sized on the tee, and I should give a small a shot. I think I'd have slightly less of an issue with the sleeves (on the long-sleeve) but I'll probably also wait to hear how it turns out for those brave enough to get in on the first runs.

I'm 160-165lbs and 5'9" and a medium (classic cut where applicable) works well

I'm ~145 lbs. I own a medium classic shirt, which will likely be up for sale on B&S soon (indian summer flannel) as it's just too big for me. Small classic works on but it's almost too small in the chest and I'm afraid it might shrink too much in the wash (yet unlaundered). I should really try slim medium. Maybe I'll grab bag one.

That's a great suggestion and I also find that helpful from other clothing sites

Weight versus height is only part of the picture. We'd need measurements and body fat percentage for the data to mean anything. I'm 6'0" and 190 and wear a medium t-shirt.

You forgot to include your body fat percentage.

I have a fairly broad chest and thin waist.  6', 175 lbs, 42 chest, 33 Gustin jean, and prefer a slim cut through the mid section and waist.

 

I don't think I could wear a medium Gustin t-shirt.  I have a few of the Gustin large t-shirts and they fit me properly through the chest, ie a modern fit without extra fabric but also not stretched tight across my chest.  I think the sleeves are a bit short even on the large.  I'd prefer more length so that it didn't feel like the fabric ended in my armpit.

 

I posted photos wearing a pink chambray Gustin classic medium showing that the chest is too tight and stretching at the buttons and arms.  The slim medium has a smaller chest than that and the slim large has the same chest dimension as the classic medium, if I'm remembering the fit guide correctly.

 

So my opinion based on this info is that a classic medium or slim large will fit a chest ~40".

 

I'll try a classic large when something catches my eye.

 

[EDIT]   I looked back at the fit guide and realize what caused my original error thinking that a classic medium would fit me.  My chest measures 42", as measured with a flex tape and used to specify a suit jacket where the sizing is based on your dimensions, not the dimensions of the piece of clothing.  The numbers in the Gustin fit guide are dimensions of the piece of clothing so must be sufficiently larger than the dimensions of your body to fit right.
