Khaki Overdye had the leg twist. Immediately obvious, particularly given the infamous thread about it. They felt weird to wear, and definitely looked funny on. Reluctantly sent back for a refund (took about 8 days to be applied, FWIW).

 

The Natural arrived on Saturday. Wore them today, only find a number of problems. Dark blue lines along one of the seams inside (fine, except that I have to roll mine since I'm nowhere near a 36 length). Hoping maybe that can be resolved with a Tide Pen (at Matt's recommendation), or possibly "fixed" when I finally have my Gustin jeans chainstitch hemmed. A black line (measurement mark?) on the outside of the seam on the same leg. And, quite a few loose thread ends (hopefully, no big deal).

 

I would love to keep The Naturals. They are really nice (as were the Khaki Overdyes, honestly).

 

I haven't seen anything recently regarding QC problems on their jeans.

 

Hoping maybe others can chime in (misery loves company? lol), or, I can just chalk this up to bad luck.

 

Either way, their CS has been good so far.


I had a pair twit pretty badly (about 30-40 degrees) to the point where the selvedge id is pretty close to  the arch on my foot. It was apparent after the first soak so I'm thinking it might have something to do with my gait effecting the stretch on the waist. Th only other thing I would consider a problem is a pull on the thigh of a new pair of rust chinos. I feel it when I'm running my hand on them but its not very noticeable so I'm not too concerned. Overall, I'm happy with Gustin quality and CS in problematic situations.

Is it not possible to combine shipping? Thinking of picking up a couple of pairs of shorts, and I imagine they would all ship at the same time, but cannot seem to combine... Yes I'm a cheap bastard and want to save $6.

What's wrong with that?  I kind of wish there was a zipper on some of their canvas chinos....would make button loss pretty minimal, lol.

 

 

 

More generally, I do like the shorts....albeit, a bit too short.

I have also been very pleased with their CS.

 

The pair of Naturals I received will reluctantly have to be sent back. The upper line had faded some, but upon getting wet with the Shout, the line bled through. If I had not caught it now, it would have been discovered upon the first wash... which may not have been for a while. I spent a significant amount of time trying to remove the line, but I guess multiple applications of stain remover faded the fabric. It's a shame, but they're just one pair of jeans, which I'm certain Gustin will release again soon.

 

In the meantime, I have requested to be notified when they return, and I used the store credit to try out the blue herringbone lightweight shirt.

 

They really should step up their QC, but at least the return process has been pretty painless so far.

I've gone on extensive diatribes against the zipper fly in the past, but the crux of it is that the main advantage is supposed to be the capability to urinate without undoing the top button of your pants, but the length of the zipper is inadequate on most pants that don't have an especially high rise.

From what I have read, buttons allow the front to sit flatter when you are sitting. I still prefer the zipper for convenience though.

+1

 

and too trim in the thigh for me personally

I'm in for the Olive and Navy shorts.  I was hoping for zipper instead of buttons and a shorter inseam, so 2 for 2.  Thanks Gustin!  The ability to combine items in one purchase for shipping would be appreciated.  I assume we can't because their releases / ship dates are usually spread out.

Wait what?

Ostensibly if your pants have a zipper fly, you can just unzip without undoing the top button (and belt if you're wearing one), whereas with a button fly you have to unbutton from the top. Most low- to mid-rise pants, however, don't have enough zipper length to offer a 100% comfortable, 0% chance-of-contact-with-metal experience if you don't also undo the top button (IME at least).

Do people have to undo the top button to go pee in button flys?  Gustin jeans/chino's aren't super low rise, so there shouldn't be a problem.

It's just easier to rip them all open. Maybe I just don't have the finger dexterity to finagle all of the buttons open and closed while the top button and my belt is still fastened.

Likewise. I have kinda big fingers, so I can't really fit them in between the buttons to undo them without undoing the top button.

I was planning to order shorts but I'm feeling hesitant.

 

It seems like the cut is a bit strange and I'm trying to figure out why.  Maybe a bit slim?  Or a bit more tapered than usual?  Or perhaps I'm just out of style and everyone points and laughs at my shorts when I'm not looking.  :)

 

Also $59 seems a bit expensive for a standard twill short, ie not a "radical value".  Gustin says these are comparable to $100+ shorts.  But I don't think I've ever paid more than $30-40 for a pair of shorts and the price for foreign made shorts at Costco or Walmart is $15-20.  I was expecting the Gustin shorts to be more like $40.  Does anyone on here buy $100+ shorts?
