Gustin has some amazing shirts, but I can't get into them :( 18.5" neck, 50" chest, it ain't happening lol (and I've tried a few times)..

On the plus side, got my persimmons a few weeks ago, they're pretty groovy! I think I prefer the Persimmon Indigo I got the chinos in a few years ago better, but they're fine. They cancelled both the pink chambray and red linen campaigns and that was disheartening. Sigh.

Only 3 pair left in queue, all in production. Finally. I wish it got cold enough here in SoCal to warrant those big wools.

I'm spared from the heavy wools (and heavy moleskin) since you normally have to go up one or two sizes and I'm already ordering 40's. The do look nice and would be great on winter day's here in the northeast.

Finally got all my Gustin pairs hemmed and wore my olive yesterday. After taken a pic I realized it needed a iron before I could post (I had washed them and air dried before hemming).

Wearing these today.

How do you like them? I almost bought a pair because they don't really look like jeans.

I sort of bought these on a whim but I like them, very interesting texture and doesn't give off a traditional jeans vibe.

I may pick up some other offerings like this in the future.

Anyone else a fan of Gustin's work shirts? Been wearing the Japan Black heavy as a shirt jacket for about two years, and it's fading nicely. Thinking of picking up the cone mills work shirt for days I'm wearing black jeans or khakis. I'm not quite cool enough to pull off the Johnny Cash look lol.

I have a few of their workshirts. They fit me well and Gustin finds some interesting material to make them out of. I don't have any here with me to take a photo, but I have the Monster Natural that I wore as an actual workshirt, and it has a million stains on it. LOL
The Japan Heavy Moleskin is heavier than most jean jackets. It's a cool fabric.

I have a pair of them. It seems people either love or hate the "stripes" from the heavy slub yarn. I like how it looks. They are one of my favorite pairs from Gustin.
