    Hello everyone, what an amazing forum. You are dapper dressers proving daily that taste isn't about expense or trends.

    I received my first pair of raw denim three days ago, a stock order of Gustin's "Greensboros"#68 in 33 slim. In most respects they fit like a glove, with some pressure on the waist that's easing up already. However, when I'm sitting or lifting a knee to walk up stairs, there is a more uncompromising pressure on my crotch, right on the cojones. I'm diligently doing half-splits and squats and taking long walks in them, but I'm starting to suspect the problem is more about the low rise. I'm aware they're meant to be worn below the hips, but you can only go so far before restricting movement. I'm 6'1" 170lbs and as someone who runs and does leg presses I have an average to substantial rear. So maybe the problem is the back rise? Regardless, it's sad because the rise doesn't change much when you go up a size.

    Does anyone else have the same issue with Gustin jeans? Do you think they'll stretch out any more? Sometimes I feel like it's worth the occasional pinch, other times my right teste is trapped between two creases and begs on behalf of my unborn children to relent.

    Maybe you should have bought straight fit instead of slim? It's possible their patterns might not just work for you.

    Boo, is the site no longer hosting pictures?

    Hey thanks for the response, and I love what you did with that last outfit by the way.
    I tried the straight fit and it was perfect in the waist but 90s skater boy from there down. You're probably right, gustin denim may not be for me and it makes me sad. It was so close! I'll have to console myself with their footwear. Very excited for the horween CXL natural high tops I backed. Also I've been taking nature walks in those brown guide boots for weeks, they're comfortable and looking even better with wear.

    Not perfect for me either. Almost all of my bottoms are straight fit tapered from knee down.
