    I'll have one of my sewers take care of it. I don;t want anyone thinking i'm not happy with this because I am seriously impressed & happy.

    Just that one flaw which they should adjust moving forward as most have found the G WS too long

    Gustin measurements look pretty standard when you compare overall with pit to pit measurements and not actual tag size, these are of course modern fit and not vintage, I do have few LVCs Sunset 1920 two pockets these have narrow shoulders and shorter length with boxy fit & I love them, just waiting Gustin to come out with mid weight like 6 to 8 oz, I don't prefer any thing heavier than that, enjoy you look good in them!!!

    It shouldn't be difficult to bring the waist in on their chinos, right?

    I also received my postal HB workshirt and it's fantastic. Anyone wearing a small G shirt should strongly consider picking up the one on their stock page.

    Thanks for the review & pics DD. The shirt looks awesome, I'm sorry I didn't get one (I have a RRL one in a very similar raw herringbone fabric). Also very glad to see the pocket fabric perfectly aligned to the body, as requested by me & the buying public! :) Looking forward to many more unique selvedge workshirts!! B.

    That looks like XXXL :) Maybe this changes with soak, problem with Gustin is their denim is not tested also they don't reveal mill's name and its unknow how it goes with use. I guess you should give it a good hot soak before having a shirt shortened!!!

    Its been cold washed and dried on high heat. It shrunk up a bit but still is a bit long. This denim is from Candiani mills in Italy. Who i like much more than most of the Japanese mills.

    Right, because outsourcing with the same city is so much worse than to another continent...

    Whole outfit is spot on. I disagree that it's too long. I believe workshirts should be a bit looser, in the unlikely event that some kind of actual manual labour is required.

    I just backed the Ebbets ball cap. However, I've had a ball cap in past with a metal clasp and it dug into back of my head - not an Ebbets though. Anyone else had an Ebbets with metal clasp?

    I agree but unfortunately I doubt Gustin made these with a mechanic or a manual laborer in mind. The fit is fine but it could have been 1 inch or so shorter. Let me just say my body type needs more room so I welcome it more than a skinny feller. Most of the people who look for the so called perfect fit in jeans & especially shirts forget that denim shrinks regardless of it being sanforized or one wash so starting out with a bit of room is a good thing. I own a Iron Heart one wash selvedge denim shirt that shrunk from a XL down to a medium. That shirt was the best fitting shirt I owned and now sits in my closet useless
