^ Would actually really recommend it, for anyone on the fence. Posted photos of mine a few months ago, probably either here or in the Unknown Non-Japanese Brands thread. Has aged great.

What size did you get ?

TTS?

Did you opt Slim?

that type of cut does not seem like slim style to me, more of a box style.

I may get an XL but not sure slim or not?

Anyone getting the Gustin Cone denim shirt? 

https://www.weargustin.com/store/shirts-the-cone-101-workshirt

I got it when it was released the very first time before they offered it in slim. It's a great shirt but 2 buttons came undone pretty fast. I would recommend getting a slim and not regular shirt.

I have two Gustin workshirts, the 101 in Large and the Wabisabi in Large Slim. Both fit pretty true to their description. I'm generally a Large in most Western brands' shirts, and the 101 fits like a classic workshirt / overshirt—not boxy, but definitely not slim—while the Wabisabi is much for fitted. I generally tuck in the Wabisabi, but don't tend to tuck in the 101. I've probably done WAYWT posts wearing both. For reference, I'm around 6'2" 180 lbs.

Your description is so helpful to me and you’re right, boxy was not the best descriptor.

one question: How frequently do you wash your shirts? 

I wear these shirts like work shirts in hot summer and they get ripe without laundering. I find my typical $40 chambray from Mountain Khaki or similar does not shrink (L stays L) but my true selvedge denim shirts do shrink so I buy XL to become L.

Sometimes I wear them setting and pulling nets in the Gulf and thats all at the beach wading through surf so they constantly get wet/dry cycles which shrinks them.

thanks again

Does the Slim have restrictive shoulders?

From the description:

Scooped out sides give the untucked look a bit of extra style.”

What are scooped out sides?

Does this mean they flare out when worn untucked?

The Slim fit isn't really any more restrictive in the shoulders than the regular, but the arms are much slimmer, all the way up to the top. My one big issue with the Slim fit is that it rides up a bit in my arm pits because of this. Both fits do flare out towards the bottom, yeah.

I wash the 101 workshirt pretty frequently, and it's one of the few indigo-dyed things that I consistently put through the dryer as well—actually, I just pulled it out a few minutes ago. It's held onto its dye extremely well, and has a lot of really nice puckering / marbling. There was a little shrinkage the first time it went through the wash, and maybe a little more the first time it went through the dryer, but definitely not a full size.
