How do ppl feel about the sneakers after they been well worn? How do they hold up over time?
I got the all black lows from the second campaign and have seldom worn them
I always wished they had glued the insoles...mine bunch up where my toes meet my foot and it drives me up a wall
To be honest mine have seen little wear as well. I've been unable to find no-show socks that I am happy enough with so I kind of dread putting them on. While I'm on the subject, any recommendations for socks from anyone?
What are you unhappy about? I have some Polo, Kenneth Cole, and Uniqlo that I don't really have issues with.

The ones I've tried (none of the ones you listed) either have issues with slipping off or down which gives me blisters, and/or doing nothing to limit my foot sweat which gets uncomfortable after a couple hours of wear. For what its worth on the first point, I have size 13 US feet and most socks are cut for 6-12. This is typically not an issue with standard socks but with no shows it can be more of a problem.
I'll take a look at those brands and see.
Try Mack Weldon as well - I have a few pair that all work as advertised.
I've heard good things about Vans no-shows. They will be my next try.
I've been using the Stomper Joes off of Amazon. I buy the XS for my size 9 feet based on reviews. The extra coverage ones are good for sneakers and the normal ones are good for boat shoes. Extra coverage stay on my feet better and fit tighter overall - the elastic leaves impressions on my feet.
i didn't like the white lows. without any flash it wasn't luxe. that being said, the construction is on par, if not better, than many other brands out there, including CP
#349 Japan Whites
I think this is my first pair without a leather patch.

Any thoughts on fits of the Gustin shirts compared to JCrew and Epaulet? I am a Slim Medium at Jcrew and Medium at Epaulet.
I have a few Jcrew shirts in slim large, and a Gustin XL classic is slightly tighter.
I wear either a medium or slim medium at Jcrew, and have to order the slim large from Gustin. I'm 6ft, 165lbs for reference. The mediums from Gustin are just too tight across the chest for me.
@gustin what's the point in ordering superlight in Mayfor June/July if they don't show up until August? https://www.weargustin.com/store/5300
Indian summers? Waiting on my Japan featherweights too, but they should be shipping by end of month. I have my superlights from last year to hold me over if I want to wear light denim though.
Or regular summer? Down here it'll still be in the low to mid nineties in August.
