Gustin has Thomas Mason flanel shirts in stock medium. They look beautiful but are $155!

Not a fan either.

IMHO it's one of the top shirting offerings G has put out this year - a contender for #1. 


What makes that one so appealing to you?  Green shirt with nice material.  I like it and would wear it often, definitely not something I had to back though.  I know the dry clean only had me hold off on the blue windowpane.  Generally don't want to feel condemned to dry clean a shirt unless it's just super cool.  The albiate burgundy blue flannel that just dropped is right up there as a contender for my personal #1.

I find the moss houndstooth has a subtle class to it, especially in merino. I love the color and I'm a sucker for houndstooth and herringbone type fabrics. From 10 yards away it's just a great color and then then as you get closer the pattern pulls your attention in. To me, this shirt is way more interesting than a standard ocbd but will be nearly as versatile. Also, while I like a lot of G's fabrics and find some of them very unique, but I can get a plaid button down / flannel anywhere (though not in a G fit).

The dry cleaning rec just comes w/ the merino and its no big deal to me.

I really like the fabric specs and almost backed, although the color is just okay.  I'd probably wear it often and be comfy in it, but it doesn't jump out as stylish or beautiful because its a pretty subtle color and pattern.

 

Two big negatives caused me to not back it and overwhelmed my love of the fabric specs:

- Dry clean only requirement for a comfy shirt doesn't work for me.  Its okay for a coat that I might only clean once in 10 uses but a shirt I clean after every use.  Also I'm okay dry cleaning a fancy expensive formal shirt but not a cold day comfy shirt.

 

- The particular photos really highlighted the huge Gustin scoops.  Not in a good way.  Reminded me that I had decided I don't like having long fore and aft flaps like some kind of weird loin cloth.

 

That did it.

No idea why the scoops are as pronounced as they are.  People on this forum are constantly complaining about it, and for good reason.  The gustin fit that works best for me is the xxl which is slightly large so one time I threw a shirt in the laundry machine and torched it in the dryer.  Seemed to reduce the scoops to an acceptable level, really hard to willingly throw a nice shirt in the dryer though.  Also, not everyone has enough room with their fit to pull that off.

Both very fair points. 

 

I suppose I view this as the button down equivalent to the postal herringbone WS.

I've been hoping that postal herringbone workshirt would post again.  I really regret missing it (twice) and I think the fabric is no longer available.  I love my jeans in that fabric.  I almost love them too much to wear them and feel an irrational urge to keep them safely in my closet to look at instead of risking them to the dangers of the real world.

It's pretty great fabric. I wish I could work the WS into my rotation more

Socks!  https://www.weargustin.com/store/1934

 

I backed it and it seems to be going pretty quick.  Pretty good deal if the quality is comparable to Anonymous Ism or Chup

 

Now, if Gustin would just make boxer briefs then I could literally be in Gustin head to toe. lol

Probably will hit 100% by today.  I agree that it looks like nice fabric and can easily pair well with chinos or jeans & dry-clean only isn't TOO bad (I'll admit that I don't wash my shirts too often).  I like the subtle color in the pattern as well, but i've been resisting (hard) to not fund it bc my closet is exploding in Gustin shirts as is! 

 

My will power was not strong on the marled wine Henley which I got in on before it hit 100%.  Pairing it with my Gustin Horween color 8 low tops did it for me :)

You still can! Live on the wild side man! Nothing says "G Denim Die-hard" like indigo bleed on your boys from going commando in a new pair of IxI

Really like what they did, but $10/sock and shipping is a little pricey for me.
