post #7891 of 10485
Ive only seen 1-2 comments about the Gustin sneakers. Would love to hear more feedback. Want to know how they compare to CP and Epaulet for those who have worn either brands.

Got my mystery chambray in today. Their shirts aren't tagged with the model number like the chinos, are they? So it's just a matter of looking through photos and guessing which fabric it is? Would like to know what I got!

Why would you need my measurements? All I'm asking is if they're similar? It's not necessary to even know my waist size. All that needs to be said is "I wear a 40 in UB and I also wear a 40 in Gustin." or "I wear a 29 in UB but to have a similar waist fit in Gustin I wear a 30."  

 

.....That all being said I measured my waist at 34.5." I am currently losing a small amount of weight. For most people I don't think that is something that should be counted on but in my case I don't seem to ever have a problem consciously dropping or adding  small amounts of weight. I figure their 33 will actually be 33.5," will stretch a .5" and I my waist will be down a .5" by the time they arrive. Sound right?

 

Although I've been a long time member of Gustin's site I have only visited sporadically until recently because I knew I would soon be in the market for a new pair of raws. I didn't realize the sea blue was one of their more common runs. I'm honestly a little surprised, but works out well for me as it's one of the ones I liked more going through their past campaigns. Can anyone tell me how much and how quickly or slowly they fade or possibly post pics of a worn pair. I realize that since the warp and weft are the same color it's probably nothing dramatic but I'd still love to know.


Not all jeans are created equal. In fact, they're all different. With that said, I also have a 34.5" waist and currently wear Gustin's 34 slim. G's fit guide lists their 34 slim @ 34.5". I own 4 pairs of 34 slims and can tell you that only 1 of those pair came out at exactly 34.5"....the other 3 measure out at 34". The thing is, the 34" waist actually works for me because I've lost weight as well. I have a pair of denim from another brand that come out to 33.5" and they're nut crushers. I don't know that I would trust sizing down to a 33 unless you're confident you'll shed more weight

Go over your measurements with their fit guide and see if there's anything that works for you in their stock store? Worth a try and then you can back items with confidence.

Thank you.  I think what was holding me back more than anything is that measurements from a Gap straight cut would be narrower in some aspects than Gustin, regardless of cut.

You should trust the Gustin sizing guide. I've found Gustin to be within +/- 0.5" most of the time. Pick the size and cut that centers the most important dimensions of your favorite pair of jeans you are trying to match.

Be realistic that the +/- 0.5" tolerance could go either larger or smaller. If you can't center all the numbers in an available size/cut then go up or down a size based on if it's more important to you that the jeans fit snuggly and you are okay with less comfortable break in, or if you are okay with them more loose and want a more comfortable break in.

Also I think the slim feels and looks much more tight compared to straight than it looks in the Gustin photos. Try one of each and you'll see what I mean.

Yep, cannot recommend them enough.  Its a more comfortable jean with a better cut IMO. 

 

I'll grab the slates on the next go around also.  Should have many campaigns ago!

A few years ago I was in the exact same boat; my 31 straight Gap 1969 jeans fit me wonderfully and I wanted to step into something a bit nicer. Gustin 32 straight (in both 10oz and 16oz) were tough to button and baggy through the legs by comparison, but I gambled on a 33 slim American Fourteener and it's nearly identical to the Gap 31 straight.

I'll echo mountainman3520. Trust the sizing guide. And realize that 16.25oz denim won't stretch as much as whatever Gap used -- so when in doubt, err slightly larger.

I've worn my color 8 low top sneakers a handful of times now and I think they are great!  Size wise, they fit and feel just like my CP low achilles, and overall LOOK like them too.  The quality of the leather and construction is great and I would highly recommend them. 

 

I sized them at size 8 Gustin, and I wear 41 (8UK) CP, 8.5 Epaulet.  They felt a little roomier when I first put them on, but I had to re-lace them to get a tighter fit and they feel good now.   I think all three companies are great options, but if you want the CP look, then Gustin seems to be a great alternative bc the toe shape, etc. is just like CP; if I didn't already own my CPs, I would go Gustin and save a few bucks.  Epaulet has a more rounded toe, but you can't beat their leather options and service.

Definitely some great insight! Are your epaulets in 8.5 a bit roomy? I take 10 in epaulet, 43(10) in CP. I'm guessing would take the same in Gustin, however I have a slightly wider/flat foot. Wonder if it'll be as good. The No8 are the ones I really am after
