    I can't comment on your size but, in my experience, the cuff opening on the straights tends to be at or below the listed measurement. I have a couple pairs of 32 straights that measure 7.75-8" which is the sweet spot for me. I don't see the measurements being anywhere near bell bottom range though personally. I find they fit pretty similar to the pictured fit which is my preferred look.

    the straight fit guide lists the cuff opening on the following sizes as:

    33 waist: 18"
    34 waist: 18"
    35 waist: 18.25"

    I would technically wear the 35" waist and if you divide18.25" then the cuff opening comes in at 9.125". My cutoff limit is 8.25" - anything bigger than that would look silly

    Sounds like you should get slim fit then

    Looks silly on you, perhaps. Get the slim.

    Well spotted, they are White’s. The boots actually have the SJ last with a soft toe which makes it look sort of like the swing last because the soft toe comes up a bit after some use.

    I'm looking for a pair of Gustin 31 or 32 slim if anyone has a pair they want to unload. No Hemps please otherwise send me a DM. Thanks

    ^^ Ah cool, I have a pair with the swing, awesome boots though the 269 sole is useless in winter - that's ok though, I probably wouldn't subject them to the copious amounts of salt and sand that they use here anyway.

    My Heavy Americans arrived today with one perforation through the right back leg and two other almost-perforations nearby. With fraying of white threads nearby this is very noticeable and a disappointment, because I have waited three full months and now might not have wearable jeans until after the winter months are over.
    I ordered 30 slim and they fit ok but maybe a little looser in the seat than I expected.

    Oof. Have always wanted this, but the JP repro brands are price prohibitive for me. Madras fabrics for spring. Speckled chambray shirts. Snap closures on shirts, pearled button heads. Boiled wool, to make it non-itchy Flannel lined chore coats Denim chore coats. (Left hand twill, 12-14 oz, flannel lined?!) Hacking/side entry pockets on chore coats, trimmer sleeves so it can work in place of a casual blazer. +1 on the CPO with less pockets. Two equally sized chest pockets and one internal would be superb. They otherwise feel amazing. Really beefy hoodies (come on, some of us live in the Sunset/Richmond parts of SF!) Donegal Tweed CPO, Chore Coats, outerwear. That USN deck jacket with storm flap is truly something. I prefer the Mister Freedom Troy Jacket over the Orvis. You guys out out great stuff, @joshgustin!

    Finally received my Cone 101 WS today. After a 2 month delay and lots of bugging, Gustin did not disappoint me today. First impression is not bad at all. They could have went with contrast stitching instead of the blue thread. The fit is pretty good for my body but you can be the judge of that.

    You sized well ... should look less boxy after the 1st wash.

    Thank you. Its a regular XXL. This shirt actually fits rather than my other three Gustin shirts. I can't button the waist in my heavy indigo chambray and japan oxford shirts. It feels a little boxy right now, but I can tell the denim will relax with more wear. I leave to St. Martin tonight so I will do a wash when I come back next week

    I have 3 straights and 5 slims, and in all cases, the measured cuff opening was within 1/4" of Gustin's fit guide. I started with straight because I came to Gustin via Levis 501 STF and I was concerned about the lower rise of slim. Those fears have since been eradicated and I would never go back to straight. If in doubt, go with slim (or maybe skinny).

    Same here; my straights below the knees are a bit billowy after wear (coming from someone who likes a bigger cuff for boots). Slims from here on out as it works great for everything (sneaker, boots, etc.), awesome fit overall, love em.
