The first pair had only a bar tack. Iron Heart usually has hidden rivets, but I do have a pair of IH superblacks with no hidden rivets, but they still have the same rear pocket stitching. I would assume that this is done by machine, actually I believe that the shop Gustin uses Is even geared up to do this particular detail.
I’ve had problems in the past with the back pockets causing holes on other jeans, but I’ve found that most really nice jeans (and all my Iron Heart jeans) have this particular detail that seems to greatly reduce friction and better distribute stress.   The problem: Think this will prevent the problem Iron Heart pockets (holding up very well, not a hint of the above issue): Gustin could add a tiny bit of reinforcement to increase durability like many of the...
Zimbabwe hair shot + Reinforced my back pockets.     (I also reinforced the other one...)
^ You sure know how to give a man boot envy…
It really is more than just hype; the specs of the cotton are superior to that of Pima and many others making it the cotton of choice for many of the highest-end denim brands. Maybe some of the cotton varieties from Zimbabwe are declining in quality, but the extra long staple variety grown there is still top notch.
Just soaked my Zimbabwe jeans and they got tons softer. I’m so impressed with this amazing cotton I just backed the Zimbabwe workshirt. I can’t even believe they are actually doing a Zimbabwe workshirt, this is going to be awesome. Here are some pictures of my Zimbabwe jeans (these pictures don’t even begin to capture the silkiness of this denim): #ZIMBABWEWORKSHIRT is here: https://www.weargustin.com/store/995
Look what just came in the mail: Thorogood sneakers I was quite surprised with the quality of these; they are really top notch sneakers with nice thick almost boot-like leather(no fake leather at all), a sculpted fit, good support, hefty laces, and a Vibram sole. Much better quality than Air Jordans.                     These: http://www.weinbrennerusa.com/dspNavCategory.cfm?rootid=2&catid=157
Just received my Gustin Zimbabwe The good: They have details such as belt loops sewn into waist band, selvedge belt loop, selvedge fly, super thick leather patch, and decent constructional chain stitching. I really like the fit of the 32 straight; surprisingly it’s actually one of my better fits. The leg opening doesn’t seem as big as I thought it would. The Zimbabwe cotton feels and looks amazing (super soft, silky, and shiny) even in its current brand new starch...
Gustin quality is on the rise, not the profit margin. For example: Try to find Zimbabwe cotton jeans for $135 or a Zimbabwe cotton workshirt for $136 anywhere else. These prices are simply unprecedented and amazing for the quality.     Regarding the duffels: a Gustin promotional email said “We launched our duffels in classic navy, olive and brown fabrications. Now, we're changing the pace a bit. New shades of waxed canvas, thicker black latigo leather from Wicket and...
No, never happened to my CXL SD's. This should be a material defect assuming they didn’t come into contact with any sharp objects...Absolutely, I would be certain that White’s would stand by the structural integrity of their product.
