post #9796 of 10543

Anyone have the selvedge high tops and want to share pictures? I'm a complete fiend for their shoes suddenly...

 

Thanks for the pics derrida!

If you're in between sizes, do you go down a full size and a half?

Go down just a half.  The shoes run big but its not ridiculously big.  Confirmed from many of us.

Considering it...

The natural CXL sneakers look great. I would absolutely get them I hadn't bought the Rancourt ones. Honestly, the Gustin ones fit me better (9D).


The soles on the rancourt court classics are way too large in comparison to the rest of the shoe.  They look like platforms.  Just my opinion.  Gustin's shoe is a much better overall look.

I did go down half a size, and it was roomy in the width and had some heel slip.  Wasn't sure if another full size down would be too narrow in both, though.  Does anyone have experience going down a full size and a half?  Too narrow?  Does it break in easily?  Really considering the natural horween cxl sneakers.

Not to mention, the gum soles look pretty hideous with the natural cxl leather.  Margom soles look just right.

The Court Classics actually look almost frumpy (for lack of a better description) in comparison. Nice, but not as stylish as the Gustins, IMO.

Nice!  Thanks for the comparison.

 

I do think the Gustin two layers are a great value and I have their two layer roller in brown.

 

I currently prefer single layer construction belts and have other Horween CXL belts in the ~8oz thickness and they are plenty rugged.  I bought them 1" shorter than usual assuming they would stretch a bit because CXL tends to be a bit stretchy, which is the reason Gustin originally gave for why they were using two layer construction.  They have not yet stretched 1" but I have too many belts so they don't get lots of days of wear.

 

Looking for a 1 piece color #8 and matching boots.  Might get the Vibergs that are currently available and look awesome (photo below).  I was originally planning to get some Gustin CXL#8 boots but they have not been available.  Did anyone ever receive theirs?  If so, please post photos.

 

I'm into color #8 right now.

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

Almost wore mine today but was in a hurry and threw on some loafers instead.  This is a picture of them freshly unboxed from a few months ago.  Not the best angle/lighting, so my apologies for my lack of photography skills.  I'll snap a couple more pics of them when I get home.

New to this and have been lurking on the Gustin site pretty regularly.  I don't want to fall for advertising (outside of SF recommendations, I suppose)... so why this one over others?

 

Edit: I dipped my toe in a few weeks back when they were running the 1968.... is it the fades that makes the Okayama Standard better?

Okayama Standards (30W Slim, untailored, unwashed) from my iPhone outside with sun slightly overhead, started on 5/05/16:





Okayama Standards (both 30W Slim) new ones (hemmed to 30L, looks clean without rolls, unwashed/just fit checked form AB Fits on 8/08/16) and my Cinco de Mayo pair:




Inside (OS 30W/30L Slim, unwashed) from my iPhone with skylight as the light source. Blue/Green cast (not so evident in the photo) with nice cross hatching that I hope comes through with fading:



Really interested in Gustin's Zimbabwe Loomstates that are in the Moving Sale, everything looks good about those too!

The pix I've seen if the worn-in pairs look so good - nice tone and weave. The stitching looks like it is a little brighter, and I like the orange selvedge edge.

Got it. My knowledge of the subject is pretty limited, so I'm cautious about spending ~40% more just because the description on the Gustin site is more flowery.

So, the value is in the orange thread at the edge of the fabric and a more complicated and interesting fade due to the weave and tone.

Also looks like that fade is going to take a while, given the previous post's 3 months of work. Thanks for the education.

Yeah, you'll find about a billion different "blue jeans" pop up on Gustin's site. Since I'm assuming you're relatively new to this whole thing, you are quite correct in the intricacy of each pair of seemingly blue jeans being in the fabric. Each fabric has generally different weight, different cotton origins, different weaves, different treatments that make them all kinda unique, not only in their makeup, but with how they develop. So often people kinda fall in love with particular fabrics for just being generally great, comfy, well fading, etc. and the Okayama's being one of them. But you'll start to pick up on all of this soon. I unshamefully have 4 different pairs of indigo denim, and I'm quite certain that's one of the lower counts on this thread...

 

Anyway, don't mind me if I'm just reiterating things you already knew.

Okayamas fade pretty nicely. I love the green hue to the denim, but have been bulking so my pair hasn't gotten any wear.

 

 

Here's a sample fade pic from Selvedgestyle (on the right):

Those are great.  Thanks for posting.  In that photo its hard to fully see the redish tone of #8 but that's the nature of the color.

 

I heard from Ren at Gustin that these #8 boots didn't sell well so there were not many made.  You are lucky to have a pair as they are beautiful.

 

I think the Gustin boots are a great value and regret they were not more successful.  I like everything about them except the top needs to use 3 speed hooks (or holes) instead of 4 as they are much too close together with 4.

 

Anyone worn theirs a lot and able to comment on how they are breaking in and holding up?
