^ Thanks for coming through @BlueWord

 

How'd you size relative to your other Gustin stuff? And would you say the jacket came in on spec to the fit guide?

I'm about 6'1", 155-160 lbs and I went with a small. I was worried it was too small at first, but it's beginning to break in pretty well after a day's wear.

With regard to relativity to other Gustin products, I'm sorry to say that the only other item I've bought from them were the briefs! So I don't think there's much comparison to be made. FWIW, I'm a small in those as well.

I haven't measured the jacket to compare against the fit guide, although I'd say just by how it fits me that it's comfortably within range of expectations. I'll see if I can get some measurements together later, if anyone is curious.

Congrats ... you picked the best size for yourself ... sleeves might be a tad short, but the body looks spot on.

Omg it's about time someone posted a picture of the jacket. Took long enough....
post #9515 of 10340

Yeah... I'm going to need a medium. Rats.

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.

I just got some more of their shirts this week and they fit fine for me. Maybe the heavyweight seems tight because it's thicker/less pliable and stretchy

I am a 5'9-5'10, 162 lbs. I have a 30 to 31 true waist depending on how many burgers I ate this month. My thighs are above average in thickness. I like slim fit jeans but find most OTR to me too tight around the thigh especially after a several washes. Any size recommendations for gustin? I am leaning towards 30 slim or skinny. It is very hard to tell how slim their pants really are!

 

Can someone compare the fit to Jcrew 484 or Unbranded Skinny 1x and Tight 4x

Grab the measurements from your best fitting pair of jeans.

 

Then compare to Gustin's fit guide.

Your Gustin size for waist is definitely going to be 30.  Now you just need to decide the cut.  Based on your specs and preference, it sounds like you are leaning towards slim fit (you don't want the skinny that's for sure).  One thing I'll mention is that their straight cut has fairly narrow thighs as well.  I have large soccer thighs and I would not consider going to the slim style as their straights are definitely slim enough for me.  If the leg opening measurement is not too large for you, you may want to consider the straight fit. 

 

Also you have the option of using their stock store (weargustin.com/stock) and buying two pairs in your potential fit and then returning them.  You can also back 2 cuts of the same run and return the one you don't like for store credit.  Knowing your waist size is definitely going to be 30 helps you figure this out quickly.  Like @JilSlander said though, best way really is to measure your pants and compare to their guide.

Got my #290 Cone Natural Indigo jeans from Gustin. These are my first pair of denim from Gustin although I've bought the Ballistic nylon backpack and some of their tees. The reason I bought these jeans was specifically only for the denim that they offered. My initial impressions were a bit underwhelmed but I also feel like I am "getting what I paid for". If I look at what I paid for then I can see that these jeans aren't a bad deal and I can see the appeal for many. The leather patch feels like its wet and does not feel that great in terms of quality. I like how the jeans are half-lined on the back pockets and the pocket bags aren't bad either. As for stitching, I HATE the red threads on the jeans. To me, it feels a bit tacky to add something like that on there and kinda wished they changed it. The buttons/rivets are whateves to me.
I think a few people have also mentioned much about issues with QC which is something that I noticed on my pair of jeans. I have a thread that seems to run down, on the inside, from the knee down to the hem of the of my jeans. It looks like it was sew into the jeans for a few inches and then loose to the hem.

That's disappointing, I wonder why. Some raw denim chinos look amazing.

Don't say, not clever desicion especially consider that they already make some https://www.weargustin.com/store/3309  "Technically, this is a colored denim"

Agreed, I look at "twill" as similar to denim. And some of their chinos definitely look similar to denim from an appearance perspective (blue canvas chinos for example). Strange they won't experiment more with denim chinos.

Thank you! Great info. I went for 30 slim from the stock store.

Alas, my L1 is finally in my hands - unfortunately, I am a bit concerned with its condition.  The first red flag was the condition of the box upon my receipt.  It looked severely damaged and had almost completely come open (took me about 10 seconds to get into it).  Hard to assign causality to any one thing, but the end result is this:

 

 

 

 

The close-ups are on the left sleeve, where the leather appears to have taken some punishment.  Looking for opinions from the group on the ramifications of this.  Obviously the whole jacket will break in eventually, but this is a pretty significant thing that will look very off at least for the near future.  I really wanted to like this jacket, and unlike some others, actually prefer the styling, color etc. over competitors.

 

Thoughts?
