    I've just gotten confirmation and tracking number for my Gustin, early bird, heavy American. I should get it within 3 days or earlier since SF is around the corner from me. Will keep you guys updated.

    Post what you think of them once you get them. I'm regretting not picking those up, but I wanted to make sure of the fit before ordering much more. And post a pic. I want to see what those suckers look like (which I'm sure will make me kick myself).

    johnnyt & DuckOB, I've worn a 32 waist since the early 80's, up until they started mucking with the sizes. A 32 in the Gustin straight cut is snug for me, but I'm confident it will stretch fine. I don't know how the slim will fit yet. I did notice the fabric makes a difference. The soft Super Heavy is more comfortable than the stiff Overdye, and doesn't feel as tight. The straight Gustin has a higher rise, which makes it hard to compare, but my LVC '66 501's are 32 waist as well, if that helps any.

    Definitely post a pic, Barrel.

    Cheers, let me know how they fit when you get them and I'll do the same with my pair.

    I've just received my slim fit, Early Bird, Heavy Americans last night. The construction and quality is great. Way better than the earlier Gustin's I've seen in SF. I'm really impressed with the craftsmanship. However, 32 is a bit too tight on me. I think I should have gone with size 33 slim...Oh well, I'm wearing them now, and actually they are not as bad! I'll take some fit pics in a bit. I started stacking my slim fittings jeans and they actually look a lot better!

    I'm usually a size 30 in Civilianire and 32 in other makes. I think Gustin, slim fit runs just a bit smaller. I got some muffin top action going on...[​IMG]

    Oh well, I'm going to stretch it out for a bit and see how they fit afterwards.

    As an owner of two pairs of Gustin jeans with different denim, I urge everyone to measure carefully your best fitting jeans for comparison and fit. Do not go by the label size of any other brand. Most manufacturer sizes are vanity and have nothing to do with actual fit.

    I measured mine with a $1.99 tailors fabric tape measure. (a good investment for anyone who buys clothing online). I had no problem with the Gustin size chart, my measurements and the jeans I received. However, the size of any jean by any manufacturer will vary a bit from jean to jean. These are after all sewn by hand and variations of 1/4" or more can and will happen. Even manufacturers of fine tailored dress pants will tell you the same thing.

    What size did you get in Gustin and what size do you wear in other manufacturers?

    Here are some photos of my Heavy Americans, slim fit, size 32. It's a bit slim for my taste but I might keep these...These are actually boarder line skinny...But I do like the look of stacking slims...

    Anyone with sizing questions should check out this page: https://www.weargustin.com/fitguide. They recommend measuring your best-fitting pair of jeans and getting something similarly sized. I did that and everything turned out almost perfectly, though the regulars are very snug on my hard-to-fit thighs. The inseam is much longer than anything else I own (it takes 3 rolls instead of 2.) Also, the belt loops are gigantic - I could wear both my 32mm dress belts at once.

    The workmanship, hardware and details are stunning. The fabric on the Super Heavy is amazing, and I expect the Black 2 will grow on me. I find that the stitching (which is the classic orange/tan color) stands out a lot more than I expected it to, particularly on the black denim.

    Barrel, I like the fit of the second pair a little better, but that may be because they are broken in and the Gustin are new. If I had a muscular frame, I personally wouldn't want to go any skinnier than the Gustin pair, but I think they will look even better once they ease a bit. Definitely nice stacks. Your pose in the Civilianire looks more comfortable, which can have a big impact on how the fit looks, and the older denim shows up better in the light. Thanks for the photos!

    Hey bud, thanks for the comment! I do think a skinny pair of jawnz will make me look like I have a super hero body (top heavy with tiny legs). lol I'm actually planning on loosing more weight so maybe that'll make those jeans fit me better.

    The Civilianire is actually fairly new. It's just a lighter shade of blue and the fit is a bit loose. I like the fact the Gustins are a bit skinnier as the rest of my denim collection is on the looser side.

    Anyhow, if you guys are looking for a skinny fit, go with your true size and go for the slim fit. If you guys are looking just for a slim fit, I would go at least 1 size up or maybe even two in their slim fit.

    Hehe, hopefully not Mr. Incredible. ;)

    And yeah, I like the idea of variety. They look like a nice addition.

    If I want a similar fit to the Naked and Famous Weird Guy and I wear a 29 in those except for the heavier fabrics (anything above 18oz), what size should I get in the slim? I take size 28 in APC new standards, 30 in wings and horns chino, and 30 in epaulet rivet chinos.

    I would think 29 or 30. I'm usually a 32/33 in other makes. Gustin, slim, 32 is a bit too tight on me. But it all really depends on your body shape. I say if you got skinny legs and no belly fat, go with 28. But if your legs are a bit bigger and have some belly fat, yes, fat skinny people do exist. lol, go with 29 or 30.

    I just grabbed my slim Super Light from the mailbox. I was a little worried how the slim would fit compared to the straight, but it's about perfect for my scrawny ass. I'll probably go with the slim for most future orders.

    Now I'm jonesing for them to release their OCBD's.
