I just received my first pair.  I'm impressed with the pair I got, which was a slim taper with the BlackXBlack Candiani fabric.  Nice construction details.  Excellent quality/price ratio.  I waited about 10 weeks, and it was worthwhile.   Gotta see how they break in though: the slim taper is an aggressive cut, I'm not sure if I'll be able to pull it off!  Glad that the second pair I ordered was a slim straight.  Looking forward to those.
 Sure thing:  Needs an ironing.  This one's the army green canvas. I'm about 190 lbs and 6'2", wearing a large.  I can't speak to the specific shirt in question.  I too was a little baffled when I saw how much they were charging for it.  If you look back a little ways, you'll see that they were offering two packs of regular black, heather grey, and white t-shirts for $26 for two.  I can only imagine, all things considered, how much more that fabric they're using must cost...
Anybody hear any news about the fade contest?   As far as QC issues: I agree that they should probably beef up their QC department.  I received a flannel not too long ago that had a small imperfection: a snag or bump in it's weave.  Not necessarily entirely Gustin's fault: the mill that made the fabric let that one slip by.  Still, though, it could have been caught in QC if somebody was looking carefully.   While I was disappointed with having to send the shirt back, I...
Updated with lower prices.
I realize this is something of an niche product: but I'd love to see a gustin guitar strap. woudnt have to be anything fancy, it's just very difficult to find a decent, simple, affordable leather guitar strap. I've got one from tanner goods that I'm quite happy with. I'd like to see one that's a little easier on the wallet and can extend a bit longer, though.
I'm liking the look of that 15.2 oz cone mills denim backpack they've got.  Tempted to pick one up...the price certainly is right.
This is a company that I have mixed feelings about.   Honestly, I love their T's and their slim button-downs.  They're cut as close to perfect for me as it gets.  I just wish that they offered more variety.  More colors, more patterns.  I'd particularly like it if they offered a heavier line of T-shirts.  Their standard line is fantastic, but especially in the colder months I like to have heavier T's to layer with.   Some of their products I just can't wrap my head...
Up for sale here are a couple of pairs of Epaulet "Smith" selvedge denim jeans.  This model has been discontinued for a while now, and is a classic straight-leg.  Both are size 34.   The Slubby indigo pair has seen some wear, but is still in very good condition.  It has been washed once.  The fabric is very slubby with tonal stitching, and I believe it is somewhere in the 11.75oz range.  I can't quite recall the exact weight.   Measurements are as follows:   Waist...
 The picture is deceptive, then.  Here's another to illustrate what I mean:  Could it be a little more tailored?  Sure.  As it stands, though, there's nothing baggy about this jacket.  The shoulder seams hit where they're supposed to, and the chest is very slim.  The waist  and biceps could be taken in a little bit, but overall I'm happy with the fit. It's brand-new cowhide as well, it's going to take some time for this thing to break in.  Right now it's very stiff.
A pair of Indy's are definitely in my "one day" list.  Maybe a few raises down the road.  Those courtland's are gorgeous too, they strike me as a mix between the original 1000 mile and the Alden 403.  I'd like to pick up a pair of these for a less refined, shit-kicking moc toe:   http://www.redwingheritage.com/USD/product/footwear/6-inch-boots/6-brown-875-00875   Though a pair of these are definitely in my near future for a pair of "on the jobsite, gonna get beat to...
