RE: Gustin long sleeve t-shirts

 

Dear lord these things have slim arms. I mean... they are tight on my forearms! I've got large body parts but no one ever accused me of having large forearms.

 

Really liked the fit of the regular T's, but I don't think I'll buy any more of the long sleeves. I bought medium, I wear medium classic fit in their button downs.

I received a 3 pack of Gustin long sleeve henleys a few days ago.  I don't think the arms on these are tight.  I guess maybe their long sleeve t-shirt is a different pattern than a long sleeve henley?  That's a bit surprising.  I would have thought the henley was just a t-shirt with added slit and buttons at the neck.

I was afraid of this and held off for precisely that reason. The fit pics in the product offering show they are tight on the model (Josh?) who is pretty slim

I just got my #258 Japan Indigo Gunmetal jeans in today.  I am sorely disappointed.  I was really hoping this would be the elusive blue x grey denim I have been searching for.  I already own the Gustin #103 GreyXBlue, and those are sweet.  Unfortunately the Indigo Gunmetal looks like the very standard inky blue.  The weft absolutely doesn't come through.  Even if it did, I'm not convinced that would give me the blue grey tone I am looking for.  The weft is more of a light grey as opposed to gunmetal as was advertised.  Not the first time I've been burned on color. 

 

1. If anyone is looking for a 33 slim standard inky blue I'd be willing to sell these for $65 shipped.  These are currently completely raw and unmodified.

 

2. Might intentionally fading these in the wash bring out the weft?

 

3. Does anyone know where I can find blue - grey denim?

You could probably just return them to Gustin?

Doesn't it seem strange that the "#8 CXL Classic Boot" is $199 and the "Horween CXL #8 High Top" is $259?

 

These two shoes are made of identical leather for the upper.  Isn't is significantly more expensive to build a boot using classic high quality construction methods than to build a sneaker?

 

Or I guess the price is driven more by what the market will bear.  And Horween sneakers are trendy right now, maybe made by a few very expensive brands with a high price point?

 

The #8 boots look like a really great price, if the quality lives up to high standards.  I'd have already ordered but I'm feeling hesitant since there have been almost zero comments and no detailed reviews on here from anyone who has received Gustin boots and mine have been "about to ship" for a month.

I believe it's because of manufacturing costs. Basically, sneakers made in Italy versus boots in the USA

With that said, the boots (especially the color 8) seem to be a really great value

I agree with your analysis.  Those boots are tempting, but I already own Wolverine 1000 mile boots in #8, and we still don't have reviews on the Gustin Boots.

Any chance you could share that link?

You may want to look for something like the Japan Union Blue, which is kind of a steely blue color, though not very dark. If you're a creative type, you may find you'll get what you're looking for by getting lighter color denim and lightly overdying it with black until you get the color you're looking for. They've run indigo x coal, but you're going to find the darker wefts paired with an indigo warp just makes for an even more saturated looking indigo top surface -- so a weft darker than those you have will likely be a bigger disappointment for you..

Yep, just email them.  Their customer service in my experience so far has been absolutely terrific.  I'll keep buying from them for just that aspect alone (besides the great fabrics, prices, and made in America approach).

Here is the link they sent me.  I've seen several of these tips mentioned in this thread, but this was a good "all in one" article mentioning all the tips I've seen mentioned in the thread plus a little more.  Right now I'm doing the option of "buy two sizes up on the waist and then alter the waist".  It's worked well on my chinos and I am trying on Gustin jeans next.

Are the Gustin chino fabrics pre-shrunk? Is there anything I should do prior to taking my new pair to the tailor to get them hemmed? TIA
