If you're really worried about the length (as in any change will result in high waters or whatever), I would recommend what @gaseousclay said, do a cold soak with minimal agitation and then hang dry for the least shrink. Most of the shrink on a sanforized pair will come back out with wear, and this stretching back out process tends to happen faster the longer you've been breaking them in -- after about a year my American Sixteeners still come out of washing tight, but they're back to normal after a couple hours of wear. Supposedly you can hang them upside down or weight them to pull the length back out, though if you're going for fades I can't imagine this is good for helping them set.

 

@justinkapur I compeltely agree with these suggestions if you're trying to keep the inseem length where it is

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..

 

I actually own a pair of Levi's that look just like the Japan Union Blue.  Good suggestions though!

Thinking about funding these sneakers

Though I'm afraid of getting them late and also me not liking them.

Speaking of sneakers, I'd love to see a version of these with a taller shaft - maybe another three or four pairs of eyelets - and a vertical zipper on one of the sides or in the back.

Could have been mentioned already, but is it possible to add product shots for campaigns that are being rerun? Sometimes it is hard to picture what a shirt will look like with just a fabric swatch.

How does the sizing of Gustin CP ripoffs compare with actual common projects? I wear 39 in CPs so would I be able to fit in a 40 (size 7) in Gustin? Im 7.5 TTS.

yeah, this is an obvious thing that Gustin should be doing and we've asked for it multiple times but its been ignored.  Its pure laziness to not post plenty of real product photos for items that have previously been built.  It would take so little time and effort to cycle each new first build through a standard set of 10 photo poses and only use those item-specific photos from that point forward.

 

/sigh

Exo and avs thank you for the feedback. It will definitely help when they will finally need a wash. They aren't stinking or feeling dirty or spotty anywhere so hopefully I can keep wearing them without washing them soon.

You know, I've been wondering the same thing myself. I understand (kinda) for first time runs, but for re-runs, it sure would be nice to see product shots. I can't help but think it would sell more product too.

Exactly my thoughts. Is the consensus to size up in shirting? I'm definitely not going for slim. I'm pretty exclusively XL in Gitman, J Crew.
