    I'm 6'1" 160, and I wear a large in both (whereas I'm a medium in most stuff). I need a large in Epaulet for both the sleeve length and the chest size. I need a large in Gustin just for the sleeve length. The chest is bigger, the shoulders are maybe a hair broader, and the body is definitely roomier on the Gustin shirt.

    @IrateCustomer - looking good. What size shirt do you wear ? I'm 5'11 180. I wear a jcrew medium slim. I've heard go medium but a fair number have recommended large as well

    If you wear a slim Medium in J Crew, I'd stick with Medium in this as well. That's what I did. I have 33.5" arm length, 18" shoulders, and a 40" chest for reference. If you have very similar numbers I'd say you're good with Medium. The armholes are cut rather high, so if your chest is any bigger, you might do better with a large. Just some thoughts.

    I'm the same height and weight and I wear a medium. It fits slim so I keep it out of the dryer. I'm also pretty muscular up top, not sure what your build is.

    Same build basically. I use cold/cold, hand wash settings for the washer and hang dry.

    Sounds good boys. I'm going to go with the medium. Sounds like we're all similar builds - this helps a lot. Thanks again

    If you are actually muscular up top, you should go large. 180-190, 5'11 40 jacket. Just got my first shirt. Snug fit, not a lifter just athletic.

    I think a Gustin small is very close to an Epaulet medium. I own both and think both fit well. Epaulet shirts have a bit more taper thanks to the darts but they are the same in the chest and shoulders.

    Hey prozach, can you comment on the quality of Epaulet shirts vs. Gustin's. I only have some belts and tees from Epaulet, which are a great value for the quality, but never tried any of their shirts.

    I only own one Gustin shirt, but I think it's both nicer and, due to the significantly lower price, a much better value. Epaulet shirts have a great fit and they choose good fabrics, but for me they aren't worth the price (not hating on Epaulet though...lots of their stuff is a killer value, especially their bottoms).

    Good to know, thanks. Per their trousers, I've heard as much so I'll have to give them a try.

    Hi Guys,
    Just a quick question, has anyone had any problems with Gustin's customer service?
    I recently received a Japan black x black in a W32 which I received about two weeks ago. Unfortunately, waist was fine but the legs were tighter than anticipated (compared the measurements to my RRL Slim fit W32). Anyway in the process of waiting for the store credit, I missed out a potential alternate and still I haven't heard back from them.

    Are they usually this late with comms? Im getting a bit irritated with it all.

    PM me the email you use for your Gustin account and I'll figure out what's going on. Sorry for any delay.
