Hoping that after initial wash and shrink, that it won't stretch out too much on my waist.
    They seem to really only stretch where they need to in most cases. If you're really worried about it, I'd wear a belt from day one to try and keep the waist from stretching.

    My first pair of Gustin jeans arrived today, #136 The Grey Herringbone, and I'm rather stoked about them.

    They're 10.5oz so I should be able to wear them all year-round and the pattern is pretty spectacular, especially when cuffed. Fit is pretty spot on with the exception of length, which is understandably long.

    I can't wait to break them in.

    Regards,
    Vic

    I can't tell you guys how happy I am with my gustin purchases. I have multiple pairs of jeans, shirts, one belt and one duffle bag.

    The heavyweight belt is amazing it is a sturdy piece of meat and though the price went up it is still worth it. Honestly it's amazing.

    The duffle also should easy be a $300 bag. Mine was free of any defect and is an awesome piece that will she with grace ever use. The hardware is awesome sturdy, thick and looks great.

    My gustin chambray is probably my favorite shirt. Love the material weight and feel. They are updating the buttons to thicker mother of pearl soon. Gustins chambray, flannel and twill shirts are amazing. I also like the poplin fabric but something about the more hearty fabrics just is a great feel to wear. I recommend the basic chambray, cream slate flannel, charcoal grey twill.

    I have the unwaxed army green herringbone chore coat coming in this fall. Can't wait to get it my first outerwear from Gustin.

    Currently have a ton of jeans from them and the fabric selection is amazing. Grey/blue silks are one hell of a fabric, heavier weight jeans pop up often and if you don't have a heavy fabric jean yet this would be a great chance. I have Gustins 26'oz beasts and 9oz super lights. Super lights are chambray like in feel and very easy to wear on hot days. The 26's are a beast and one hell of an experiance should make for a great cold weather jean. The blackxaqua and cone blueXblacks also have a light crisp feel unlike most denim to start. They really run a ton of awesome jeans and have something for everyone.

    Gustin does make mistakes but they WILL take care of you. Returns are very easy and if they make a mistake yu won't have to pay for return shipping and maybe even some extra store credit. Customer service is great.

    When I first washed my 15ers (warm tub soak), I lost about 1" or more in the process...

    Still have a pair of worn once 36 Heavy American straight sitting around. I'd trade for a slim pair of Gustins or sell for $75 shipped conus.

    This. I have been wearing my Cone Pima Fires pretty regularly and they were still tight in the seat/crotch. I wore them for all of our 24+ hour road trip and they are finally getting to where I want them. I'd try not to do too many squats, it'll stretch out the knees. If you're going to do squats, hike the legs up a little to avoid this.

    Do the buttons ever get easier to do/undo?

    Don't think you can let out the waist of jeans...it's a single piece of denim around the waistband. Mine (15ers) probably stretched that much in the waist...you just have to do some serious squats in them. Buttons definitely loosen up over time, too.

    I'm sure it's when they're sewing the hems or the crotches. There are like 6+ layers of 26oz denim there. I know my mother-in-law was saying that hemming my Heavy Americans was a little hairy and they are only 16.25oz.
