Typically that's what it is understood to mean.

I went with the Okayama Standards (OS) in a 32-straight for my first pair of Gustins. But even after a hot soak and machine dry, they’ve eased too much in the top block. If I were to order the OS again (or another denim with similar stretching potential), I could see myself downsizing to a 31-straight.

For those of you with the OS in your Gustin collection, would you say that it’s level of stretchiness is above-, below- or about average?

I always find these stories curious as I've never had a pair of jeans stretch beyond a wearable point.  Theoretically the denim shouldn't stretch beyond what your body requires and that's always been my experience. Sometimes continued torque/pressure would lead to the expected sagging in the butt or knee region but it was never anything that didn't correct itself with a wash.

 

Anyway, I'm sincerely sorry to hear that you can't wear them anymore. That's a great denim - I love the greyish color

As @avsmusic1 said, and I will reiterate... You should wash them.

Anyone have any of the heavy chinos? Looking at (for the future) the Heavy slate.

Also debating between the heavy coffee vs the Japan acorn

Yes the Caramel, one of my favourite pairs of pants.

How was the initial fit when you got them?

 

My OS didn't stretch much; I just happened to drop a bit of weight and they fit perfectly now.

Just received my 34 slim American Sixteeners, unfortunately they sewed up a size small.  I'll tell you what, .5 inches too small in the thigh is a big deal!  Props to Gustin's customer service though, they are taking care of me well.

Heavy Carmel's here too, and also one of my favorite pairs of chinos. Great fabric and the fit is spot on for my build. I'm also looking for the heavy slate to come back...

More work shirts Please!

Has anyone gotten the Zimbabwe Loomstates from the stock store recently?  I've read that the latest batch sewed up a size small so i was kind of tempted to try out a 38 slim (normal size 34 slim) and a warm soak to shrink them down to my size.  Is that expecting too much shrinkage?

For returns, do you only get store credit, or do you get a refund?

I've only ever gotten store credit.  I've never pushed for a refund though.

This is the only issue I have with Gustin jeans. Anyone know why certain pairs sew up small? Is it the person cutting the patterns or maybe the material itself?
I had to return a pair that were sewn up way small. The rise was an inch short of the chart and that's not a little bit. I could button them but it looked like I was wearing some low rise joints. I have another pair in the same size that are my best fitting jeans ever. Gustin cust. serv. is great though, they took care of me. If pairs were consistent to sizing, I'd probably have a closet full of their denim.
