I'm right between the M & L. 5'8", husky build. L will be good for me after washing. M will be undershirts.

 

In other words, size up... IMO, YMMV, etc., etc. ;-)

most of my stuff came within spec also. I should note too that specs will be out of whack regardless of brand. I bought a pair of 3sixteen st-100x denim in a size 33 not too long ago and every site I visited that listed the waist measurements had them at 34", but my pair came in at 33.5". Not a deal breaker as I can squeeze into them no problem and they will stretch, my point being that even other brands can have issues with fit. i've found that the weight of denim, for example, can largely dictate whether or not you stick with your normal size or go up a size.

Beginning to think the leather jackets must not look that great in person/worn and perhaps people are embarrassed they dropped the $ on it?

 

Over on the leather jacket thread, pictures are routinely posted within minutes/hours of people getting a new jacket to get fit opinions but its been almost a week now?

post #9500 of 10340

Agreed, particularly about the denim weight.

 

I'm good in the slim fit with their summer weight jeans, but the American slim fit are pretty tight. They will stretch and then shrink slightly in the wash. Should all balance out in the end.

 

I'm not as concerned about the fit as I am the finish and then issues such as stains, stray marks, etc. that I've experienced.

 

All in all, the Gustin jeans are nicer than your standard fare, and with more variety than anyone else, AFAIK.

I haven't seen one fit pic yet on SF, Reddit, Instagram, etc.

Same.  I went browsing other sites in hopes of finding, but no luck.  Maybe Gustin put a note in the packaging not to post pictures, haha.

 

My natural L1 is set to arrive tomorrow, but its shipping to my office, so I won't have in hand until Monday.  Such a shame not to have it handy for a Texas summer Saturday night... :crackup:

To be fair, it is nearly July and hot as f*ck outside. It's hardly jacket weather

^ Even a general fit pic in your own home would work.

Im XXL classic and take a XXL for the T's.  Could not go any smaller.  Take XXL. 6'1" and the length is perfect as well.

Thats horrible news.  I own 8 gustin t's and they all fit the same.

 

I got the oil washed today and it's a way too tight and going back.  I also have the heavy indigo on order and v.1 of it fit very nice.  I'm thinking they tweaked their pattern. 

 

Really not happy with Gustin much anymore.  T shirts too tight, button downs too tight in the chest.  Jeans are not bad.

 

I'll be back next week with my report on the heavy indigo.

post #9509 of 10340

The Heavyweight Indigo tee is my first t-shirt from Gustin.

 

The only gripe I have is the sleeves are a bit short/tight and shoulders came in under spec.

 

I'm probably gonna hold off on a hot wash.

It's been a while since I used this account, but since I see everyone clamoring for pictures, I'll post a few.




I've been a little disappointed that some loose grain creasing has developed on one of the sleeves, but I'm otherwise very pleased with the jacket.



Pictures of the rest of the jacket. The left side in general seems to have a looser grain, as demonstrated in the photos.
