Do they have anything in a light tan that doesnt have a grey-ish tinge?

Love the material. Soft, neppy, colors are great. Only issue is the scoops. I have a relatively long torso so I literally can't wear this without a T-shirt underneath. The scoops and general length of the button downs keep me from buying more often. Wish they'd bring back the two pocket design. Never got to see if that worked better for me.

Unfortunately, I am not sure, the pair I am wearing today (Epaulet twill driggs) is my light khaki pair.  If you're looking for specifically duck canvas, Epaulet might be a good option for you if Rivet or Driggs fit work for you.

F*** YEAH!!! The boys at Gustin must have read my post, or maybe the USPS got their s**t together for a day! I'm like a fat kid in a candy shop! https://www.weargustin.com/store/3101
#75 OKAYAMA STANDARDS:





Lighting was off on this one:


30 slim: Texture feels great! Fit is tight but not unbearable, and I look forward to breakin em in the next few days/weeks. Haven't noticed anything "off" with the workmanship thus far...

Super happy!

And the V-necks:

Yep, tags aren't centered...

Cheers

What is it that you like so much about the #75 Okayama Standards?  I'm asking this from the perspective of a person who has a few Gustin jeans and I'm wondering what's unique and special about this fabric.

 

Also, is it just me or is that v-nech t-shirt built using a fabric with a horizontal pattern that isn't properly parallel with the ground??  It looks like the fabric was assembled crooked.

 

I don't care too much about centering of the tag on the inside, but its mandatory that a horizontal pattern be horizontal and a vertical pattern be vertical.

The ok standards are just that- a fantastic "standard"
The denim is a perfect weight, nice stiffness, some character to the weave, interesting selvedge, with an great dark indigo that has a slightly unique grey cast to it
It's checks every box and does a pretty good job in each category.

Dang I bought the desert duck canvas thinking it would be a straight forward khaki color. This is disappointing to read.

Direct (overcast) light - so it's a bit darker

Well, I still wear the desert duck chinos like I would any other light khaki. I guess you'll have to judge when you receive them

Hey IrateCustomer--- So I am about 3 years late to this thread, but do you mind if I ask you what size Gustin Slim fit you went with?? I am almost the same specs as you (5' 9.5" at 165 lbs)..... Trying to figure out if I should go for a Slim 31 or 32!

 

Thanks in advance! I really appreciate it!

post #9161 of 10356

Well, I'm about 5' 10.5" at 155 lbs (or a bit less).  The fit on a pair of Gustin's 33 skinnys is good -- a little snug, but comfortable.  As it should be.  I suspect that the 31s or 32s would be too small.  They don't use vanity sizing.

 

I have a pair of the Black2s in 33 slim on the way.  Hopefully those will fit as nicely as the 33 skinnys!

Both the heather crew neck T-Shirts I received a few days ago also had the pattern slanted.  When I saw the first one I was WTF, when I realized both were the same, I figured it must be what they intended.  Still it does look a bit odd.

 

Anyone get them horizontal?

 

Edit BTW the pics on the gusting website are also slanted.

Unfortunately I don't have other Gustin jeans to compare them against as far as likes go. However, I'll compare them between my NF 13.5oz Weird Guy Old World Selvedge and NF 20oz Weird Guy Elephant 5. For reference the Okayama Standards are 14.5oz..

I like the weight of my Old World Selvedge, but the indigo is much lighter than my Okayama Standard and the weft is Khaki.

I haven't worn my Elephant 5 because I have to size down from 32( Which I'm selling ) to 30( There's a brand new pair on Grailed... Just haven't pulled the trigger, yet ), but I absolutely love the vertical and horizontal cross hatching that is visible and will only get better with age and wear.

So THIS is where the Okayama Standard brings the best of both of these worlds together for me, weight and cross hatching (granted the cross hatching on these is not as dramatic as the Elephant 5). I also love the orange stitching and selvedge, GO GIANTS!

Exactly!


As for the V-neck pattern, it's diagonal/slanted, and it was not assembled crooked. I was looking through Nordstroms online and there are a lot of other brands sporting the same diagonal pattern. So that appears to be the style/trend. I was hoping for a horizontal pattern, too, but this just breaks up the monotony.

Hope this helped, great discussion going!

Damn, my new Gustin chinos (the desert duck) seem to be made a bit slimmer than usual (size 33), but the calf is right on my calf, and the cuff is only 15' rather than the listed 15.5. Seems like the waist/thigh is fine, specs fit the size 33, but the knee-down is a 31

My suggestion - Do yourself a favor and use the G fit guide 

 

It's unlikely anyone here with similar height/weight specs is a good reference for you. I'm 5'9" and ~165lbs and could never get into anything slimmer than a 33 straight
