post #8446 of 10340

not sure if I missed it, but did someone review the sizing on the henleys yet? I see they have grey in the stock store. Is it similar to the tees or is it really boxy?

I got the initial 3-pack variety. I find them to fit looser than the longsleeve tshirts (especially in the arms). They are definitely much nicer than any GAP or JCrew-brand henleys that I've had. I wear Classic Medium in G and Medium in these as well. I would say there were worth it. I never care about the wait time associated with G stuff so I'm not factoring that in with the "worth it" judgement. I don't know how they really compare with high-end stuff though so keep that in mind.

Just got my #265 Japan 21. 

 

Super heavy weight at 21 oz.  I must say for as heavy as they are they don't feel as stiff as the last 16 oz I bought.  I think they are pretty great.  Just wore them out to eat with a group of friends/family and they were not bad at all, not uncomfortable.  I love the color as well.  Not an overly bright blue, dark, but not bright, and the weft being white makes them not appear quite as dark as you would expect. 

 

Overall they are a great jean.  I would rate them as the best I've owned pretty easily (I have never bought high end jeans before besides my other Gustin purchases).  So far I'm very happy with all three of my gustin chinos/jeans:

--#6 brown duck canvas chino

--#151 heavy blackXcoal

--#265 japan 21 (favorite)

 

I will be buying more for sure.  :slayer:

Just got my greensboros, Pretty snug in the waist but I did some squatting and it felt like it was already getting loose. Im wondering if I should try sizing up to a 31. I do love how the rest of the leg fits though.

Keep the size you have.  Waist stretches considerably after a few wears.  All my gustins have increased at least an inch in the waist to fit my body and I am always glad my fit has the legs of the smaller size.  You should only be going up if you can't realistically button the top or if it's an unreal squeeze cutting off your circulation.  Minor discomfort now for long term perfection.

Those look much darker than in their photos.  Are they as dark as it appears in your photo.  Check the gustin page, they appear almost white.  Regardless, awesome pair of grey denim that I will absolutely be purchasing next round.  I can't say no to grey.

Would love to see Gustin go the opposite direction on some of their henley and do linen or cotton/linen henleys rather than always doing a heavyweight version of everything.

I'm actually lacking short sleeve henley's so would be looking to do that, but linen or cotton/linen sounds great too. Not sure if I would prefer long or short sleeve.

I'm in between sizing for the denim.  I chose to go up in size, and have the leg taken in to 7.25".  I don't like having to count of waist stretching.  I also want day 1 comfort.    

I'm picking them up today and will let you know how it turns out.  

 

Also, Okayama Shadow might just be the perfect grey denim.  I like the Japan Heather Grey a lot, but that black weft on the Shadow is perfect.

Wearing the new cone bluexblack today. They're awesome. Definitely appreciate the sizing up recommendation. The 33 straight feels even tighter than my 32 straight blue14 when they were new.

Hey gustin site makes them appear almost white. Which I would say has to do with lighting. In real life they are light grey not as white as gustin picture. But my picture make them look dark. But in real life they are not that dark & also not as white as gustin picture.

I was getting dressed this morning, looked over at my wife, and then this happened.

 

Who knew Gustin had a women's line?  :tounge:

Any plans to bring out some linnen cotton blend (50-50)  lightweight jeans for the summer?
