    For Uniqlo I am referring to the standard XS in their oxfords and broadcloths and for Gustin I'm referring to the XS regular fit. The lower back area is definitely less billowy than Uniqlo shirts. As for the length, while I'm not 100% sure that Gustin shirts are actually shorter, it definitely looks that way because of the high side scoops.

    Grey wool Bedford City Coat fully funded. :slayer:

    Still awaiting the return of the Japan khaki workshirt. Or for someone to return a slim M. :paranoia:

    Quick clarifying question: is the city coat three buttons or four buttons? I could've sworn I saw a photo that showed a buttonhole on the lapel, but I don't see one on the olive drab jacket.

    Can anyone compare the fit of Gustin Slim Chinos to J. Crew Urban Slim Chinos? I wear a 32 waist in J Crew Urban Slim and when I measured the thigh, I got 24 inches. The chart below shows almost 26 inches.

    How would a 33 Gustin Slim compare to a 32 J Crew Urban Slim? For reference, I find that J Crew 484 is a decent amount too tight in the thigh for me.

    For starters, the J.Crew measurements are a circumference, not measuring flat and multiplying by two. You can measure your Urban Slims the way Gustin does and compare the measurements. For a 33 Gustin, it shows the thigh is 24.5 inches, and you said your Urban Slim measured out to 24. I would imagine they would feel slightly larger than the J. Crew pant

    When I measured flat and multiplied by 2 for my J Crew Urban Slims, the numbers were all a perfect match to that chart, except the thigh. So I'm not really sure whether J Crew used actual circumference, or calulated by measuring flat and multiplying by two.

    I was hoping someone has worn both and can compare. I'd be more than fine with the Gustin Slims being 1/2 inch bigger in the thigh, I'm just trying to make sure they're not any tighter in the thigh.

    Also, I'm slightly worried about the waist being too tight. Is sizing up 1" for Gustin compared to a brand like J Crew enough? Based on the measurements I've taken it should be. But again, I'm hoping for feedback from someone who has worn them both (may be a longshot.)

    Thanks in advance if anyone can give some insight!

    Did the Waxed Charcoal Chore Coat fund? I can't find it on the recently completed campaign list. I wanted to fund it, and it didn't look like it had a lot of backing yesterday, but now it's gone amongst all the City Coats (which I don't seem to like very much).

    That one didn't fund. We run our waxed canvas a lot so it'll probably be back at some point.

    Got the Postal Herringbone yesterday after returning from an extended Thanksgiving trip. That thing is badass. Way more substantial than I had imagined and the fit is absolutely perfect for me. Great work on this one guys - cannot recommend it highly enough. Might take me several years to break this beast in!

    @joshgustin - So it's been a while since I asked...how's that sweatshirt coming? [​IMG] Also...thoughts on a spring jacket? Maybe an anorak style? Or perhaps pop-over/henley shirts (particularly with that fantastic waffle dobby fabric, which is fantastic by the way. I mentioned it was fantastic, right?)?

    Knits are coming. Never as quickly as we'd like but I'm going to venture to say you may see a launch this month on our first knit product. Haven't turned to spring jackets yet. Agree on the Dobby. I actually forgot to put my name on the list for one of those -- huge mistake.

    Any chance of the dobby in a workshirt?

    +1 on the Waffle Dobby. I'm really disappointed I missed it.

    Can anyone comment on sizing for the trucker jacket? For reference I'm 5'8" and take a size 36 jacket.

    $60 to ship the city jacket to Canada is crazy.

    Probably a small?
    I'm 5'9" and 165lbs. I have a mildly athletic build and fluctuate between a 38 and 40 jacket and wear a medium
