I have a lot of their stuff. They make some good outerwear, too. I have two waxed truckers. Used to wear a size L, but have also been lifting quite a bit (Barbell Logic!) and ended up replacing them with the XL. So finally getting around to putting the Large ones on ebay. Very gently worn.

Right now I have the Olive Waxed Trucker on ebay. Eventually I will get around to putting my oxblood waxed lined trucker up. Both are lightly used.

Anyone have any experience with the Loomstate jeans? I sized up 1 size for the Cone Unsanforized, even though Gustin recommended sizing up 3 sizes, and they were really tight at first. The break-in was rough but now I probably wear them more than any other pair of jeans I have. With the exception of it being tough to get much in the pockets, they fit great. I was thinking about sizing up two sizes for the Loomstate
I have a pair listed at 37 but measured closer to 36. I wear a 33/34 in Gustin depending on my weight gain. The loomstate is my favorite pair of denim and picked up a second pair. Shrink to fit is perfect for these.

I was planning to pick-up a new pair of black jeans this winter, but that selvedge sateen released this morning is intriguing.

Does anyone have one of their CPO shirts? Does the arm pocket look easy to remove?

One more Gustin jacket up for sale. Last one from me. Large Waxed Oxblood Lined Trucker. I really like this jacket, but this is the wrong size for me. It's a great color and makes any fall outfit pop. I have the XL and it has been worn a lot more than this one. This is like new, very lightly used.

Yeah that fabric is great but that arm pocket is hideous.
I've been staring at it all morning.
Although I'd vastly prefer it without, the sleeve pocket when zoomed in seems small, I'm guessing irl it'll be less noticeable.
The fabric is so cool I may not be able to resist at that price point...

I have one of the grey wool CPO shirts. I don't have it with me, but if I recall the pocket is just sewn on. It isn't cut into the sleeve in any manner. I haven't tried to remove it.

But I have a few Gustin shirts in wool and heavy flannel that came with two chest pockets. I can't stand how the two pockets look so I always remove the right side pocket. You have to take your time and only cut the thread, not the shirt. After wearing the shirts two or three times you can't even tell a second pocket was ever there.

I already backed it.

I am new to Gustin. I discovered the olive green selvedge and the persimmon dyed denim after the initial offerings had ended. I received notice that they're back so I ordered both #159 & #139. My question is does anyone have experience with these fabrics? I noticed that the fit guide has the same measurements for every jean or pants that they sell. The way I understand their operation is that they have the fabrics and then they make the jeans (or pants) to these measurements. So why is there such a disparity on people's experiences? I ordered the olive selvedge in 38 straight which matches my ideal measurements, I ordered the persimmons in 40 straight since they recommended to size up one size. Hoping for the best.

I have the olive and the organic brown — which seems to be a close brother of the organic persimmon.
I ordered the olive in a size 35 straight, and sized up to size 36 straight on the organic brown. They fit about the same.

From what I can understand, the “tightness” of the different weaves impacts their shrinkage (and stretching). I’ve ordered up (size 36) on the tight heavy weaves and it’s worked for me.

Hello, I am thinking of backing a Gustin oxford shirt, what sort of fit are these? I prefer a high armhole, are these the case?

In my opinion, they do have a high armhole compared to the regular fits for brands like Brooks Brothers and Ralph Lauren. It's not a super slim fit though.

Thanks a lot, what about the hightop sneakers? I am usually US8 in dress shoes and US in sport shoes like Adidas etc.

Are Gistin sneakers sized like dress shoes? are they true to size?
