So I only have two of the new(er) short sleeve t's - slate gray and black. Wearing the black today for the first time, I've noticed it is noticeably larger than the gray (slimmest) and older long sleeve v-necks I have. Except for the shoulders, almost feels like the small is a medium. Since the care tag was completely blacked out, it seems the t's are cut and sewn before dyeing. Does the black dyeing process just yield less shrinkage overall compared to other colors? How...
Agreed about the denim jacket. I really wanted one before, still looking for something not $300+, but really didn't like Gustin's design of it. A nice, simple Type III would be good.
Backed the black/black. Interesting that it's about $20 cheaper than the last black/black. Both are Japanese 13.5oz fabrics too. Current one looks more saturated/blacker. Just waiting for a blue/blue to pop up now.
As a really general guide, heavier denim will probably stretch less. But that's very general. What matters more is the tightness of the weave of the denim. Unless you're told explicitly about the tightness/looseness, it's hard to say how much it'll stretch. e.g. my 14oz PBJ 005's stretched WAY more than my 21oz IH 634s (3 inches versus 1.5).
Half an hour later and the 23oz is just sitting at barely 25% funding, stark contrast to the 26oz selling out in less than half that time. I think the same price tag for the two pairs is a bit off putting, combined with Gustin saying the 23oz will be back in July. $200 is still cheap for a 23oz, but I'm sure a lot of people are still thinking, "damn, coulda gotten 26oz for that price." I doubt most people would really notice the 3oz difference, but a denim that heavy is...
It will go away with wear. Years of wearing dry denim and I've never had it not go away. It will reappear after you soak/wash them, but it'll go away again.
I'm moving soon so I've been trying to slowly clean out my closet. Pair of new, unworn, unhemmed, unsoaked Gustin jeans. Size 30 in straight fit. 16.25ounce Cone Mills denim, all American made and sewn. Red line selvedge. These are a one-off pair - there's a run in the fabric in the upper left thigh. I've included a picture and quarter for size reference. Retail on these was $81 + shipping ($86 for most people). Considering the small fabric defect, immediate shipping, and...
How to size the shorts - assuming my size is still remaining. Measure current pants measurement and get that, no vanity sizing? Just sold some stuff so have a little spending money for clothes heh.
$200 for 26 ounces is crazy cheap. N&F 25 ounces retail for $500. IH 23oz is around there too. Wish I checked this thread earlier to get in on it.
Hey Mauro, here's essentially the email I sent that didn't go through: I was just asking what sizes of the shorts you have left. Are measurements the same as the bloodline trousers except inseam? How about the the hem measurement?
