Has Gustin ever made the Oxblood Trucker in an unlined version?  I only remember it posting once before and that one was lined just like the current posting.

 

I want one and I'm wavering between waiting in hope that they will post un unlined at some point, or jumping on this one and taking the risk on the lining being too warm or otherwise troublesome.

Good point- I guess I don't specifically remember an unlined verson and just assumed the 1st offering was unlined like all the others. You could probably scroll through all the past jacket offering to verify. If it's selling though I would bet they will do an unlined run in the warmer seasons. That said, I wouldn't worry to much about the liner- it's not very heavy and I kinda dig the look

I'd like to see the oxblood in a chore coat.

Well, I don't have flippers.  Just relatively wide feet compared to some.  I have a pretty large frame and large feet to go along with it.  In the past, I've run into problems with some of the more narrow shoes including converse.  Most known brands have worked out fine without having to have some custom option.  I was just a little worried about Gustin for me after checking out the pics.  In some, they look very thin and potentially problematic.  Your review is encouraging though.

I just looked. They've only done the oxblood once before and it was lined.

 

Can anyone tell how their sizing compares to Levis truckers? Again not that I really have the money for it, but just to indulge my fantasies for a minute.

Yes I saw that. Don't be a dick. Clearly someone has never learned the difference between qualitative and quantitative......or how to conduct themselves properly in the company of others. Good day sir.

I didn't want the straights because of the cuff opening being 18" although I have read some people said it's usually closer to a 17".

Agreed to both of the above. I wear a 31 slim, primarily because of the thigh measurements. If I went straight, I could probably do a 30. If you think the seat or thighs will be close, I'd suggest the larger of the two sizes you're considering. Keep in mind as well that if the 35 is closer to your actual waist size, it shouldn't stretch as much anyway, meaning you should be able to keep the fit close. This is my experience with the waist on the 31 slim.

Thanks for the advice, I'll measure the thighs and match up to the fit guide and see what looks better. On another note it's been chilly lately in the bay area compared to last year's winter here.

Sounds like you need a lined trucker :slayer:

This is more of a critique of the company making the shoes for Gustin, but why can't we count on the sizes being accurate? Same goes for the clothing... If I have a 34" waist, a size 34 jean should fit me. End of story.

 

Sorry for the rant, but this has been pissing me off a bit lately since I measured a 33 Straight and 34 straight yesterday (both by Gustin) and the 34 came in with a smaller waist measurement than the 33, and the 33 is about 1" too small for my waist. To make it worse, the 34 is unsanforized, meaning that it will shrink after soaking...

This is just about the funniest thing I've ever read about shoes. I wear a different size in nearly every make I've tried -- even those that are "True to the Brannock scale". It's the same thing for jeans. There seems to be as many different ways of measuring as there are manufacturers, and most don't tell you how they're doing it. A 33 in Gap or Levis is nearing a 35-36 actual waist these days, depending on how you measure. I understand your frustration, but Gustin goes much further than most manufacturers in providing fit advice and instruction.

Regarding the jeans sizing, assuming you followed the fit guide on their site and measured how they illustrate, it sounds like you got a pair of 34s that you need to return, as a waist smaller than 33.5 is more than an inch under spec. Unfortunately, unsanforized pairs coming in under spec is something they've become somewhat notorious for. That said, with unsanforized you should size up to account for shrink, and depending on the fabric this should be anywhere from 1-3 sizes.

Agreed this is one of the mysteries of the world. It's like they are all using different Brannock devices.

Missed out on the Cone ISC Chinos. If anyone's selling theirs in size 32 Slim, I'm interested.

And yet half of the jeans I've received from Gustin have been off in the measurements. It does absolutely no good to provide measurements if you aren't going to QC things before they leave the factory...

 

Funny you bring up unsaforized. Why the hell should I have to order a 37 that will shrink to a 34? Why not just size the 34 up accordingly in the factory?

 

The fact that different brands of shoes are sized differently is EXACTLY what I'm complaining about here... A Brannock device is supposed to be THE way to measure feet, yet different brands still fuck up the sizing. This should not be the case. I should be able to reliably order a 9.5 Wide or a 10 Medium and get a shoe that fits (yes, my feet are slightly wider than a standard 9.5 (basically an E). 

 

Perhaps the broader issue is that manufacturing standard are simply not what they used to be. Maybe I should just stick to brands that actually have quality control.

Yeah, I don't understand why they say "size up for unsanforized" why don't they just make it easier to understand, and have a 33 sanforized = a 33 unsanforized.
