If you're in the direct sun it may be a little warm.


Thanks!

can anyone provide some insight regarding slim vs skinny?

i know they have measurements on the site btw.

 

thanks!

Unless you and your friend share a body, it's hard for him to tell you what's going to fit you the way you like, so measuring your best fitting jeans per the fit guide is your best way to go. The skinny is a bit slimmer than the slim throughout, but the proportions tend to be about the same. If you have skinny legs, then it's likely to be good for you, if you ride a bike or love leg day, then you might find you've got a bit too much meat on your legs for the skinny. Going two sizes up in the skinny tends to net a thigh that's still slimmer than the slim cut, three sizes, and I'm pretty sure I wouldn't get into them without having sausage thighs and seams stressed all the way down the leg. 

 

Seriously, though, follow the recommendations of the fit guide or you'll end up disappointed. Don't order skinny because your peers say it fits them better. If the fit guide matches the specs of your favorite jeans, then you'll be in good shape as long as they arrive on spec -- it's worth the $3 a fabric measuring tape costs at whatever craft store you shamble into.

I feel like Gustin is slimmer in general than most brands too. I don't exactly have big legs, but need to wear the straight for my thighs.

Yowza I find the slim to be truly slim. I can't imagine ever calling it baggy. I guess it depends on phenotype though.

I love my oxblood trucker and so do numerous other people who have seen it.  I get frequent comments from women and even men regarding how beautiful it is.  Highly recommended.

 

I waited a long time for an unlined version and ended up getting the lined.  Its nice and not too hot.  Works great in the CA winter and a cold fall or spring day.  Summer and warm fall or spring days in CA are pretty much t-shirt weather for me so I skip all jackets 75% of the year.  :)

Request to Gustin:  please repost the large waxed canvas duffle in olive green.  No duffles have been up for awhile.

 

I love my small olive green version and would like to buy a matching large version!

 

Thanks

Think I'd prefer a twill to a waxed. Just looks cleaner

Wondering if this has happened to anyone here. So my Japan 21s shipped on February 1st and I had been keeping an eye on the tracking info. The package seemed to stay in Toronto for a while at the airport, I'm in a suburb of Toronto. Then, it landed in Norway. Lol, I've contacted Gustin and I'm sure they'll deal with it. But it's a pretty odd occurance.

Hey Guys!!!

 

I recently just bought a new white low top. Size US10, and its a size too big. 

 

Everything is still brand new in box, and i just wore it once to try the sizing. 

 

However its too damn big and i was wondering if anyone was experiencing the same problem? 

 

Just emailed Gustin for an exchange, but if im not wrong they don't do exchanges or refunds. The most I'll probably get is store credits, which i would then have to wait for another 3 months, and i do not want that.

 

If anyone has the same problem, just wondering if you would like to exchange pairs since they will be brand new anyways.

 

Have a US10 up and a US9 up for trade. Currently looking for a US8!!

 

Thanks Everybody!

What size do you normally wear?

Like with Converse, Wolverine 1000K's, or Clarks Desert Boots, or sneaker shoes ect...?

 

Thank you,

Jose

Usually I would wear a UK8.5 / US9.5 / EU43. I wear a US9.5 for my Jcrew Kenton Suede boots.Similar for all my Nike and Adidas Shoes, would usually take a UK8.5 or Eur 43 (Since their US sizing between addidas and Nike is quite different). 

 

However a Eur 43 / US10 in the White Low Top was a size too big. I ordered 2 pairs, the other Eur 42 / Us9 for my brother, and it was a perfect fit for me, and a size to big for him. So I would definitely recommend going a size down? Albeit some contradicting stuff on the internet.

 

Some reddit and youtube comments said it was a size too big. Some said just fine? But from my experience definitely a size too big.

 

Hope it helps!

I thought this was interesting as I always figured Gustin worked directly with the mills to obtain the material, but it would make more sense that there would be an intermediary involved in the process. This would also obviously explain the picture of the matching shirts posted above! Additionally it explains why on new items such as the workshirt they only post a small sample of the fabric and typically don't have a shirt made up in advance, they only need to post a picture of the free sample.

Just thought some people here might enjoy the above link, certainly seems to add some transparency to the process for myself.

Back on topic, I think that Salt and Pepper workshirt could look deadly, but I am having a hard time visualizing exactly what a made up shirt would look like. 

Pretty cool. If they do indeed work with Gustin, a couple that looked cool to me for workshirts (or the 2-pocket shirts, for that matter):

12 oz. indigo x natural canvas mimicking oxford / chambray:

15 oz. textured indigo x indigo canvas:

8.6 oz olive canvas (supposedly lighter IRL than pictured):

Good choices @notwithit, there are also some nice striped selvedge twills on there. Looks like the last three workshirts have all funded quickly so time for some more to be dropped.

I'm intrigued.
