I've had some issues with sizing their pants (was a 32 in one jean, 33 in another, and a 35 in the camp pant), but I think I saw that they're now posting individual measurements for each edition (I might be wrong). Point is, I personally have never had any construction complaints. Plus, their customer service really is the best I've come across.

Apologies, probably should not have said threading in my original post, rather rather it was the stitching that was coming apart at the neck and cuffs.  The fabric and fit is great, and the customer service has been great as well in addressing all those issues.  I also dont doubt that there quality has improved since 2011/2012 when I first bought my shirts.  But I will still wait and see if anything catches my eye, and if other people are also having any quality issues.

I wanted to thank you for talking about your experience. I dig your honesty. You don't get much out of a conversation or debate when only one side is heard.

In terms of your experience, I can't give you a definitive answer as to why "things are better or different". You might have had the worst luck of all time or maybe you wear shirts harder than most. Our shirts have been made in the same place in SF for the last four years by the exact same women. I have some shirts that I have worn 1-2 times a week for the last four years and have never had a single button come off. And I have had occasions where a button comes off for someone in a dressing room. And that is why I think its massively important that a clothing brand bases itself on customer service more than anything. Our clothing is made 100% by humans and humans make mistakes sometimes. Whats more important is that you fix the mistakes and stand by what you do. That said, I'd be happy to give you an oxford and report back in 6 months to a year.

^Speaking of customer service.

I agree that the CS from Taylor Stitch is on par w/ the best I've had...much of which comes from a similar SF afiliate.

Are the cords the only pants release for Feb? Any plans to restock the duck pants that you released last year (slash side pockets, jeans-like back pockets), even in another fabric?

Are the white oxfords thick enough to wear without an undershirt?

I was on the verge of buying a shirt until I realized the cost of shipping it to Canada is $30. Wow.

What's the story on the NSFW shirt?  Showing my blatant ignorance here... am I being trolled?

We will be re-launching the Good Acre canvas pants in three weeks. I'm pretty stoked on these. We have made them even more durable this time around - instead of dying sewn duck pants, we are using a vat-dyed 10.10oz Army duck. The benefit of the Army duck is that is uses a plied yarn that creates a tighter and smoother weave that is even more resistant to tearing or ripping. These will be the sturdiest pants you can get your hands on.

Our white oxford is totally fine for wear without a t-shirt. We use the heaviest oxford out there, 6oz rugby oxford.

Sorry James! Thats the price that Postal Service charges for priority mail. Fed Ex is more expensive by $10. The only thing cheaper is se sending First Class mail, but those packages have to be less than 13oz.

If you know of a more affordable way to send packages to Canada i'd be happy to make it happen.

The Not Safe for Work Shirt, more affectionately known as "the Boob shirt" is a collaborative effort with the lovely and always well behaved women at Gravel & Gold. The hand drawn print is a calling card of sorts for our neighbors at Gravel & Gold, an excellent conversation starter and a joyous celebration of the female form. Originally drawn on acetate by Cassie McGettigan with some help from friends willing to lend a boob, the print was then burned to silkscreen for application on items ranging from pillowcases to durable canvas totes.
The girls have always wanted to offer a men's shirt and we have always been crazy about the print. Needless to say, we got along swimmingly with the gals and had lots of laughs concepting the product and photographing the result. Constructed from a 7 oz cotton canvas and washed for softness, this is what every man actually wants for Valentine's day: to be covered with a cornucopia of bosoms.
If sizes are sold out on the site, check in with Gravel & Gold and if you are as in love with the print as we are, check out "Making Boobs," a great post documenting its creation.

Sorry, did not mean to imply that anyone is being dishonest. $30 just seems like an awful lot to pay for shipping a shirt to Canada. I order from the US a lot, and lighter weight items like a shirt usually ring in around the $10 mark. I assume that is because, many times, I receive them in an International Large Envelope.

 

I do not know how much a shirt (for example, the Daybreak Spring Plaid) weighs exactly, but is it more than 13oz? On USPS.com an International Large Envelope, sent to Canada and weighing under 13oz, costs less than $5.

 

I hope this does not comes across as snarky, not my intention. Just curious. I am guessing the $30 is meant to cover off all international shipping in one swoop, which is tough for those of us sitting in the snow north of the border.

I do a bit of shipping with USPS, and can vouch that for the most part, USPS priority mail is the same exact price, pound for pound, no matter where in the world you send it. What I usually encounter is that a small, flat rate box is $30 to Canada, $30 to Japan, and large, flat rate box is $60 to either. Does it make sense, considering transport costs? Not a whit, but that's how it is.

As way of suggestion it would seem fair (from a Canadian customer perspective) to be charged the incremental rather than full cost of postage. Since you offer free delivery within US perhaps you could extend the average US delivery cost as an offset against the full cost of delivery outside the US. The $30 flat rate charge makes it more difficult to justify single/smaller ticket size purchases.
