    I think you mixed the lore up a bit. The beast are the 26oz, i am thinking the 23oz were called the sac-squashers? Pictures of the keychain or it happens without them.

    There is a strong market for new Gustins that people have fit problems with. You can usually get what you paid for them. People are interested because they can get them quickly without the wait. So, if they don't fit, just sell them on the Gustin forums or on the bay. Also, if they don't fit, you must acquit (oh wait, wrong thread).

    Hello, long time lurker here. I'm looking to get the chore coat but I'm not sure if I should get XS or S. I'm 5'9 and 138lb with a 35 inch chest. For other brands I wear EU46, and more rarely 44, but never 48. Thanks in advance!

    i'd recommend emailing them to ask about the shoulder measurements and compare that and the other measurements to a well-fitting jacket. either way the XS is going to be pretty tight with only a 2.5" difference between your chest and the coat's.

    Josh,

    Since people use this thread to express wishes, I'll add mine: A coat with more useful pockets than the chore coat, perhaps with bellows but at the very least a button and flap. Maybe something more like a field jacket or a Filson tin cruiser. I've been looking for gaments for traveling and end up looking at stuff Orvis or Bean sells and thinking, I'd like something like that but USA-made and perhaps with a bit more 'hip.

    Here's an Orvis coat, which is clearly modeled after US Army field jackets, including the sateen finish:

    I think something like that in any of interesting fabrics you've been offering for the chore coat would be smashing. I could do without sateen and certainly without synthetic fabrics (not to mention the Chinese provenance).

    Re: Field jackets,

    If it were up to me, I'd start with the M1943 (which is sharper than the M1965, IMHO). At The Front makes a replica (see below), complete with a sateen finish. I wouldn't look to Gustin for a replica but rather an interpretation, provided that utility is not sacrificed. Meaning, let it be more relaxed fitting than, say, the chore coat. Imagine the M1943 in that green army canvas Gustin uses, the waxed dark oak, or perhaps a cool herring bone....

    I'd have to disagree. I think that version of the field jacket might be a bit too niche. I know M65s are super popular, but I've always been partial to the M51. The velcro closures on the M65 cuffs never sat right with me. Plus I imagine the zipped hood might be difficult to replicate. The M51 hits all the notes without seeming too costume-y.

    I can't tell if the collar/lapels of the M51 are different from the M43. That's what appeals to me. I also prefer buttons over snaps...

    The danger of being costume-y is real, and it's what keeps me from buying a replica or even an authentic vintage piece. The point is not to do a replica. But even doing a replica but with a different, more civilian fabric would make a big difference. Any of the fabrics Gustin's used on the chore coats would be great.

    The 45 almost looks like it has a pea coat-y type feel to the lapel, but maybe that's how it appears to me.

    I think you bring up an excellent point about something 'inspired' rather than a direct replica. I have a M65 replica and it's always seemed a bit off and I was never sure why. I'm sure it would be a world of difference it was slimmed down with one of the workshirt fabrics. Even some of the chore coat fabrics would be awesome.

    Something modelled on 80s German army moleskin shirts would be cool.

    If yours is already worn out it was most definitely an offshore fake anyway.

    Anyone receive their shipment of True Blue Silks? The denim is amazing to the touch and the color is breathtaking, but on the website, it says that they would be using a low-contrast tan thread, but my pair came with the orange/gold color. I was wondering if I was the only one? I much rather prefer the tan and must say I'm not a huge fan of the bright orange on these already bright-colored jeans.
