Ah, that's understandable.

 

I honestly don't mind paying a bit extra for shortening sleeves (which I always have to do anyhow). As long as the shoulder/chest fit well, everything else is tailor-able.

I do agree with you about not abusing the forum with 'disdain-filled or complaint-filled posts' which I think ruins a thread. Just saying it would be nice to hear from G once in a while since we have a lot of loyal and enthusiastic customers here who generally have some pretty good questions that could use clarifying.

Also - agree, nothing wrong with emailing CS - I've had a great record with them, and anything truly personal I make sure to email them first, never to air it out on the forum.

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.

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.

The last one I measured was a little more than an inch off in the chest and waist. The other specs were off by less than 0.25". I wear a medium slim. Agree with all other posters though that a little more room in the chest would be nice.

Last received from Gustin and my first chinos from them. Roomier than my jeans in the same size and I feel like the rise may be a little higher too, which I like.

New jeans and new shoes. Gustin cone summer. Backed the recent campaign, was pleasantly surprised when I was sent a pair from the stock store right away. These are my first lightweight denim.

Was there ever any official response from Gustin as to why their winter CPOs ship in February and now their shorts are (probably) going to ship in August? I'm not hating on Gustin, it is totally believable if the customer base fails to order things in advance for the next season. Genuinely curious.

Good color to those. I wish my Japan super lights were a bit darker.

Someone posted something like this on their Instagram - Gustin posted a pic of shorts, captioned 'coming soon' and a person commented that they probably wouldn't ship until fall. Gustin said that the planning took longer than anticipated, and that the customer can just order next year if they desire.

It's cool that they're coming out with shorts, but why not just wait on dropping them until next year and focus on other stuff in the meantime. Just seems like bad planning. If you're behind on summer, scrap it for a year, and focus on fall- rather than focusing on summer even though it's late, causing fall and winter and spring all to get pushed back as well

Being the devil's advocate here, but I tend to only travel to warm weather places during the winter here in NY. I wouldn't mind backing a pair of shorts that arrived in September/October to take with me on vacation. Not sure how much of their business is overseas, but the southern hemisphere also goes into summer, when the northern hemisphere goes into winter. Take that for what it's worth, probably not much given the timing of Gustin's offerings though.

One of the main points to gustin is that it's 'made in the USA' and I'm not sure if Australians care about our nationalism/giving to our small businesses

Eh, at some point in time, Made in USA meant something regardless of where you were.

No offence but to people outside the USA, it really didn't.

OK to be fair I thought this was the case before my time, i.e., at least 4 decades ago. Can you confirm that's not the case?
post #9358 of 10344


Yes, I can confirm that 4 decades ago, Made in America didn't mean anything to Australians, it was all about Made in Australia back then and/or avoiding Made in China products.....honestly until the last few years I wasn't even aware it was a thing....I just thought, how cute, they had their own version of what we had. (fully aware we most likely copied your movement)

 

Again no offence, I like most Americans I've met and I've been there a number of times but the world was a much larger place 40 years ago, each country was much more wrapped up in their own business than today.

 

It probably resonates a little now more than it did then as the average Aussie is buying a lot more from the US but I doubt it is a major consideration for most, we usually buy from the US as you have a MUCH larger selection of items at cheaper prices than we have here even including international postage.

 

Our official postal service (Australia Post) even offers a parcel forwarding service to get around US companies that won't ship internationally and other companies that charge inflated prices on purchases being sent to Australia. A lot of the larger US companies now have a price for US customers and about a 30% inflated price when shipping to Australia is selected.

 

Apologies for dragging the thread so off topic

Thanks for the non-American insight.

If the stars align and they're able to crank out a few pairs by the time early September rolls around, I'm sure we'll still have a couple of 90° days left here Philly. As long as they're button-fly, I'm in for a couple of pairs.
