    Is there a chance of you guys making a slimmer fit. I love my Gustins, the construction is amazing, but I wish they had a smaller leg opening.

    Yes, fits perfectly in the seat/thighs/calves but knees and ankle parts are too loose.

    Yes exactly. I'd love if they had a fit similar to APC petit new standard.

    I was just reading through the thread and a skinnier fit has been brought up a lot so hopefully we will get one soon!

    Are you talking about Slim Fit? it seems quite small already for Slim Fit, those aren't skinny fit.

    Hey Gustin:

    Any chance you guys will get into ultra-heavy denim any time soon? 20 oz plus? Thanks and excited for my first pair to arrive soon!

    My first pair were Cone Broken Weaves ordered in July and delivered early August and I really like them.

    how is the shirt sizing for tall thin guys? The medium measurements look great on chest/neck but I am worried it may be short on me and having a slender build and long legs...short shirts look horrible. Do the oxfords shrink at all?

    I would hold off then. I'm 6'5" and the large is fairly short. Maybe I'm imagining it but I think someone mentioned possibly getting a long fit sometime in the future.

    I should be receiving my #81's in a few weeks. I have an inseam between 31-32", so I will definitely need to get them hemmed. Any suggestions on the proper length for jeans? I find that if hem pants to short, they look stubby, while too long looks messy. Let's see some pictures of the perfect drape.

    I'm 6'1" 160 and pretty slim. I take a medium in most stuff and got a large in the cobalt blue flannel. It fits pretty well in the shoulders, and the sleeve length is good out of the box. I need to try it on again post-wash to see if there's any shrinkage.

    The body is pretty billowy, but I'm going to have a tailor sew down the box pleat, which is a relatively cheap and easy fix.

    If the final product works out, I'd love to see some heavyweight flannels down the line.

    FWIW, I was expecting the check pattern to be a bit larger. It's a bit difficult to gauge the size of the pattern on a shirt with only a picture of the fabric sample. Maybe add a ruler to the fabric swatch picture to give some idea of scale?

    My Japan Blue Oxford has been washed many times (in cold water) and did not shrink at all.

    Just discovered Gustin, and I'm very intrigued. I'm super impressed by the business model and I'm curious to see where you guys go. I'm wondering if you guys are planning to re-run the Natural anytime soon and if duck is anywhere on your radar.

    I should just give you guys my bank account so you can make automatic withdrawals. Any clue of timeframe?
