What are crouch creases? Usually people like the whiskers that develop, if that's what you are refering to.

I'm going to guess it's the difference between creases that form from movement and creases from a "bulge"

My Agustin heavy american are broken in and stretched ( a lot) in waist. I now have 1,5" to 2" margin in the waist and nearly the same in the thigh. I was wondering if a hot machine wash would allow to have a better fit without becoming too small. Did anyone tried a hot machine wash before and how much did the fabric shrink?

I think even if you wash them after wearing them they will expand back to being too full. If its just the waist band then take it to a tailor to trim the waist up a bit.

Thank you for your answer, I am a bit reluctant to go to a tailor, since it is a lot he has to remove. Ad I have too much room in the thigh too. Sad Gustin doesn't slim down a bit around the thighs and offers a waist 28. I don't like the narrow legs from the skinny fits.

I had a tailor taper from the crotch seam all the way down to 7" on a 34 Slim.  Turned out pretty good, however the stitching doesn't match the rest of the jeans "exactly" this is SF after all, and I lost the redbar tack which I really liked.  

 

If you aren't happy with them now, fire them for a hot soak and a trip through the dryer.  If you don't try you basically have an unwearable pair that has zero resale value.

It sounds like Gustin's fit is not for you then. Even Gustin's straight fit is slimmer than most straight fits I have tried.

I would avoid a tailor at all costs simply because most do not specialize in denim fabrics. if you're looking to get work done on your jeans then do it right. i'd send them to Rail Car Fine Goods or someone whose specialty is denim.

find a good tailor. The rule of thumb for waist is they can take out up to 2" without the butt doing strange droop characteristics. They can slim the legs more too if u want. It's cheaper than buying new jeans if you were to go that route and a good tailor will have your original jeans fitting exactly as they should.

I have tailored waist 1-2" on two Gustin jeans and chinos and love the result.

As for what gaseousclay says, my tailor local worked in a jeans factory a long time ago and is pretty awesome with jeans.

your situation is an exception. finding a good tailor would require a great deal of research on the OP's part. I would trust a good tailor to handle suits, dress shirts and the like but definitely not denim. i'm sure any tailor would likely tell the OP they can alter his jeans, but he'd be doing so at his own risk. it's better to spend extra and get it done correctly the first time imo.

I've had good success with AB Fits. They tapered a pair of Gs for my brother and it looked great. I agree with Gaseous - would go the 'denim specialist' over a tailor for denim, exceptions not withstanding

i've had about 6 pairs of jeans chainstitch hemmed by AB Fits and they've done good work. Plus, I believe that's where Gustin gets their jeans hemmed. I only suggested Rail Car because they have all the proper equipment to do repairs/alterations and by all accounts are a trustworthy company.

so I got this pair of the white low sneakers in the mail today. ordered them in late March and Gustin originally said I'd get them in July. not even three weeks later and they're already here. I have a feeling they're returns from a prior production run. anyone else's pair look like this when they first got them? haven't even tried them on yet:

I don't see anything wrong with them... After you wear them they'll crease anyway
