    Re-posted this pic bc I recall a few of you mentioned you wanted to back this shirt. It's currently being funded & haven't noticed it come up too often: https://www.weargustin.com/store/3742

    I would recommend it, it's twill but feels soft like a flannel, one of my favorites from G

    I picked up the green in the last round. It's not a color you see everyday. As my first Gustin shirt, I'm pretty happy about it.

    1st post - recent lurker...

    Dipped my toe into Gustin with the frugal 1968 drop... we'll see where that goes.

    How do Gustin's superlightweights play in the deep south? Do you basically sock it away for all but 3 months of the year, or is it light enough for gulf coast weather? TIA

    I've had a pair of the cone superlights for about a month now in Dallas (highs in the upper 90s to low 100s most days). Definitely cooler than other jeans but honestly not that significant. I've been using them as night time patio jeans, but during the day when my trips outside are typically 10 minutes or less, I don't find them substantially better than my midweight jeans. As with anything though, YMMV.

    THanks. Yeah, it's hard as heck to find green flannels.

    Were you happy with how the pattern looked once it was sewn up?

    I really wish G would offer sewn up pics of all pieces that have been run more than once!

    Thanks @crossfi73 - I'm in Houston most of the time so if I swap some temperature degrees for dewpoint degrees, I'd wager it's pretty close to Dallas weather.

    Sounds like it shouldn't be a problem to get an appropriate break-in, starting in October. [​IMG]

    Has anyone else been wearing their Irish Linen Superlights? I'm wondering how much stretch to expect. Mine are snug in the top block like regular jeans, so I hope they have a fair amount of stretch.

    Alternatively, if anyone has a pair of 33 straights they don't want, and want to sell or trade for 32 straight, just let me know.

    I just cold soaked my pair of the Italian linen super lights. Two years but not a lot of wear. They shed indigo like crazy. I've never had a pair of any brand fill the tub to such a blue. Was actually worried I made permanent damage to the bathroom!

    Funny hung is after a day and half drying. There's barely and sign if wear. Was hoping for some fades. Lol.. Kind of a bummer....wonder if its the linen mixture.....

    Anyone else have any experience with this fabric. I think it's the #225

    Interesting.

    I didn't get the Italian Linen Super Light. (maybe that's a good thing...?)

    I mean, most of us want to see at least some natural fading over time.

    Mine did the same thing and still bleed like crazy after several wears. Still look brand new.

    Short sleeve Oxford shirts are nice.

    Charcoal arrived today. Blue arrived a little while ago.

    How much do they usually stretch? About like cotton jeans, or not as much?

    Got in on this one, because they're V-necks.

    Do you guys take the same size in the t-shirts as their other shirts? I have one round of t-shirts coming but they haven't landed yet, and I'm thinking about grabbing those blue v-necks as well.
