I guess I'm having a run of bad luck then.  Like I said before, I'm not really stressing about it, but I'd just say to the Gustin guys if they're reading this thread that it is probably better to keep a schedule and follow up on statuses than communicate haphazardly.  They don't have so many products that they can't keep up (I say that as a guy who ran a small web-based business with well over a hundred products). 


I'm looking forward to the Dublin belt, the pigment-dyed v-necks and the Okayamas (assuming they fund...)!

Hey guys, I've bought a few of the Gustin jeans and am really digging the fit on the slims.

 

But for the fit of the button up shirts they make how much room do they normally have in the chest? I'm asking because of the few button ups I've gotten they fit me well in a standard resting position (relaxed shoulders arms to the side), but moving my arms/shoulders backwards is causing me some subtle (or not so subtle) pulling at the second button. Is this normal for the cut they make or should I go up in size to a large? (everything else fits decently)

I'ts a super annoying trait of their cut that they should fix.  Sometimes you get lucky and your correct size has slightly more room in the chest, other times this effect is more pronounced.  I have a couple shirts of theirs that I really like but this issue is driving me nuts on them.

 

Gustin really really needs to tweak this aspect of their shirting and if you don't like that affect I'd suggest not driving yourself crazy with buying the brand.

 

I  have about 7 of their shirts and while I love the fabric selection, the standard pattern they offer leaves a lot to be desired wrt fit n the chest area especially.  They really need to give a bit more room in the chest and slightly larger high arm holes.

Ive noticed the same thing in my last 2 shirts. They seemed inconsistent with the first few i purchased, which fit great, and not I'm hesitant to purchase any more. I thought about sizing up but i know the next size up would be too large in the body and the sleeves would definitely be too long. Judging by the sleeves in the picture, id say that is a good size for you but the chest is just too tight. Maybe they will look into adjusting their shirt fit in the near future.

 

On another note, I got payment confirmation for the summer cone denim on Monday and shipping notification for them yesterday. Im pretty excited as its summer and now I don't have to wait until the end of june/beginning of july for them.

I had to size up on their shirts. It's the only brand that I wear a Large in now.

Also noticed this. Tried to size up from classic M to slim L and it worked it chest but sleeves are now too long.

I thought about doing this same thing. I resisted due to the fact the chest measurement is the same for the M classic and L Slim. To me it seems like the LS would be a bit more baggy than the MC.

My slim button up shirts measure much smaller than the stated measurement specs on Gustin's site.

Does anyone else encounter this issue with their shirts, namely the slim fit?

I'm thinking I should go classic on all future shirts since Gustin has made all my slims smaller than stated.

You guys should fire off your finding to G's QC.

 

ANd hopefully someone from G reads this thread.

I purchased a few different Gustin shirt sizes hoping for the perfect fit and didn't quite get there, but did come close.

 

I started with a classic medium and the chest was too small.  It almost worked (before washing) but if I moved or breathed deeply the top buttons would stress which causes the shirt to not lay correctly.  And I worried that it might shrink a bit more after a few washes, even on cold gentle with air drying.  Too bad because all the other dimensions of the classic medium were perfect.

 

I noted that the slim large had the same chest but I gave it a try anyway.  It had the same chest issue as the classic medium so I think the fit guide is accurate.

 

Lastly I tried the classic large.  This solves the chest issue, which now fits perfectly.  The sleeves are a bit long but tolerable, and various other dimensions of the medium were better on me.  But the classic large works okay and the others do not so that's what I order.

 

The Gustin shirts I have received are all made pretty close to the fit guide and pretty consistent.

 

I have a ~43" chest so per the Gustin fit guide the classic medium and slim large really shouldn't have fit because they have a 43.5" chest.  About 2" of extra fabric is needed in the chest.  Its common for me to be forced up to a slim large in other brands to get a bit more chest room than a medium.

 

Mostly I think Gustin has their dimensions correct, but I think it would be nice if the slim large had an extra 1" of chest compared to the classic medium, ie halfway between the classic medium and classic large.  Most brands seem to be this way and its helpful for some of us.

I too wear classic large in G shirts and medium in almost everything else.

I've been thinking we haven't heard from Gustin for some time. This is one of the few affiliate threads I subscribe to where the sponsor is surprisingly quiet. Most of the other vendors on SF usually use their affiliate thread as an opportunity to discuss updates/new exciting happenings/questions about possible releases/ and handling of QC issues or other questions. Would definitely be nice to have them provide some official feedback.

You can bet they use this thread daily....  All the info goes back to the mothership.  

 

Their CS is great when you contact them, which I kind of like and how business should be handled IMO.  If you want to air dirty laundry on a forum fine, but its a cowardly way of doing business and what a bunch of these threads on here have turned into.  

 

No one wants to read someone else all day:   "did you get my email about my return", "its been 3 days and I haven't got a ship notice"...

Granted G's model is different than a regular e commerce business.  

 

 

Reality is some threads with constant vendor replies & updates/pre-orders work excellent (NMWA).  Others turn into dumpster fires that no one wants to read anymore and sours the whole brand for some.

 

 

I don't mind that they aren't present here often.      But again, you bet they read this and things are heard.

Same here, but only when it's shortening sleeves from the shoulder.

 

It costs $15 for me if I'm shortening sleeves from the cuff.

He does them from the cuff but it looks like a lot of work with the buttoned cuffs and sleeve seam. He actually moves everything up instead of just shortening the existing opening.
