If I buy a pair that fit perfect on day one, I will expect them to be to big after 20-30 wears due to them stretching.

But after you wash, don't they re-shrink a bit?

Yes, Kind of.
Mostly in length but also the Rise.
So with one pair I have they are suppose to have a 12.75 rise, they now have a 9" . Useless to me.

that can't be a shrinkage/stretch issue though, thats a gustin QC issue

Alittle of both.
All I know for sure is that I've recieved 12 pairs from Lord G, of those 6 sewed up small or shrunk (after a warm 20 min soak).
50/50 not a good record for me.
Don't get me wrong, I love G and recommend them. But only denims that have been offered before and can be researched as to how they have sewn up and how others have found them to wear/shrink/etc.
I have enough denim so from now on I'll be looking for RTW and that I'm given spacific measurements of for a spacific pair.

On a less happy note, looking for advice on something.  I ordered a pair of Grey Silks out of the stock store a couple months ago in size 31.  Love the look of them, but after 5 or 6 wears, I simply can't get them to stretch enough.  I've tried wearing them wet and stretching, and all I seem to be accomplishing is loosening the stitching around the fly.  They are overly tight pretty much from the knee up.

 

I own two other pairs of Gustins - some Okayama Rainbow IDs in 31, and some cone mills in 32.  The Okayamas fit perfectly after about 5 wears, and the cone mills have stretched a bit too much after probably 20 or 30 wears, but they are acceptable.

 

What else can I try?  $160 is a lot to spend on closet decoration, but I've run out of ideas and they are beyond return condition.  Further, how do I adjust future ordering?  The Greys fit about the same as the Okayamas on day 1.  Only difference is one pair stretched and the other seems to be about the same size as day 1.

 

Appreciate any ideas you all have.

Unfortunately, I'm in the same boat and selling my Grey Silks as well.  As someone mentioned, depending on the material there is more or less stretch and this pair is one that has less stretch to them.  I had the same issue with the selvedge cords, which Gustin told me they typically suggest 1 size up due to the less stretch; luckily I was able to return that pair. 

 

If they don't fit, and have little chance of fitting, then you will just have to sell them at a (hopefully slight) loss.  Not sure if Gustin puts the "size up 1 for this material" for these in the descriptions (like how they do for the loomstates) but it would be helpful for us buyers who just buy the same size & assume they will fit the same.

I'm a little surprised the Okayama Standard hasn't funded yet.  I'm new to the Gustin scene - is 83% and 5 days left usually something that will generally close/fund?

100% chance it will fund

Thanks - are they generally pretty lax in putting updates on closed/funded orders?  I'm in on the Brown Horween belt from several weeks ago as well as the Pigment-dyed v-necks from early April.  There's an update on the shirts from a couple weeks ago that says the shirts should have started shipping this week.  I dunno - A little more communication would be nice...  Have they been better or worse in the past?

Try not to get to hung up on updates. It get frustrating.

All my stuff aside from 1 were delivered towards the middle to end of the estimated delivery period.

If you like the fit it's worth the wait. Materials and construction are excellent for the $. The wait is the drawback.

Honestly, I mind the wait less than the lack of or erratic communication.  I'm not stressing.  It just seems like a very simple thing to do well, even if it is just "No update this week - waiting for more info from the plant - will post any information we get before next week if possible"

Sometimes sh*t happens that can cause delays, but G is usually consistent with updates.
