Gustin jeans sound great - I'll check out the Gustin thread, and it sounds like you definitely made the right decision!
However $98 for 22oz Unbranded sounds like a great deal - as a heavyweight denim fan I'd say kop them if you can...I paid more than that for both 19oz and 21oz jeans!!!
Enjoy your Gustins and have fun fading them!
After the wearing of 18 ounces yesterday twice, including once after the rinse while they were still damp, I am definitely a fan of heavy weight denim. I struggle with the sizing of Unbranded. My favorite jeans truly measure 17.5" or 35. I was thinking 34 on the Unbranded. I wish I could try them on!
