Fit guide

We’re very serious about our fits here at Gustin. The best pair of jeans in the world will be worthless to you if it doesn’t fit like a glove. They’re the result of years of wearing. We often wear new fits for months ourselves before releasing them to make sure they pass the real test of everyday living. Most importantly, once we define a fit we love, we do not change it. We may run it in different fabrics, but you can be confident that the fit will be the same one you love each time.


Jeans

Straight fit

This is the perfect, classic straight leg fit. Not too skinny, not too loose. The rise is just right, but not super low. It’s a timeless cut that will never go out of style. Gustin was born with this fit and we’ve been wearing it for over 2 years daily.

Slim fit

This is our modern slim cut. We’ve dropped the rise as compared to the straight fit so it sits lower on the hips. The thigh has been brought in along with the knee and there is a slight taper to the cuff. Definitely a more fitted look, but very wearable.

Jean measurement guide

Picking the right size is very important. We know from selling thousands of pairs of our jeans that the best way to decide which size to order is to measure your best fitting pair of jeans, and compare with our size guide. All of our measurements are pre-wear and pre-wash. Expect our waist to stretch as they break in (raw denim stretches more as it breaks in than washed fabric), and shrink minimally when the pants are washed.

Lets walk through an example. You have a pair of jeans labeled size 30 that fit perfectly. You measure the waist of the pants like in the image to the left and find that actually measure 33" in the waist. Why are they a size 30, why is the waist measuring 33"? It's because many brands use "Vanity Sizing" to make you feel better about your waist size. We use it less than most.

So you have the 33" measurement. Now, let's select your Gustin size. Raw denim will ease about an inch in the waist as it breaks in. The stretching of the waist band typically takes a couple weeks of good wear and only achievable if you are able to button the jeans all the way up. We recommend choosing the Gustin size that is closest to .5" under your measured pair of jeans. In this case, you would choose Gustin size 32. Your Gustin jeans will come measuring around 32.5" and will be snug the first time you put them on. After a few weeks, the waist will relax and you will have a pair of jeans you can wear with or without a belt. This is where personal preference comes in, if you are looking for a comfortable fit right out of the bag without the break in process, you might opt for the 33.

Waist

With the waistband buttoned, lay out your pants flat, and pull the top of the front edge to the top of the back edge. Measure from one end of the waist to the other, and multiply this number by two.

Front rise

With the pants still buttoned and flat, measured from the crotch seam to the top edge of the front of the pant.

Thigh (2” down)

With the pants still buttoned and flat, measure across the thigh, 2” down from the crotch seam. Multiply this number by two.

Knee (15” down)

With the pants still buttoned and flat, measure across the knee, 15” down from the crotch seam. Multiply this number by two.

Cuff opening

With the cuff flat, measure the width and multiply by two.


Shirts

We set out to create a fit that gave a bespoke tailored-looking fit, without being overly snug and restrictive.

Our shirt fit starts with a beautifully tailored body, not too slim, but definitely fitted. High armholes keep the body lines clean. The length hits just right so it looks great tucked or untucked. Scooped out sides give the untucked look a bit of extra style.

If you're inbetween sizes, or unsure, we suggest going with the larger of the two sizes you're considering.
