13.5 oz Cone Mills Selvedge, Made in San Fransisco, and only $81? Kickstarter - Page 28

post #406 of 622

I think it depends on your build. If you have slimmer legs or you'd like your denim to sit tighter through seat and thighs you can go with the slim fit, but If you'd rather have a more classic fit, with a higher rise go with the straights. 

 

I just ordered a pair of Straight Japan Standards in 34", I'm a 33" in Levis 505 and my worn in denim measured to approx 36" at the waist, so with stretch I hope the Gustins will be fine.

^^^Thanks for the input!

 

 

Anyone know approximately how much Gustins will stretch out?  0.5", 1", more?

It says up to 1" in the fit guide. They recommend a person with 35" waist to go with 33" and let them stretch. I guess the lighter denim will stretch more/quicker.

Is anybody else finding the jeans are a great deal but other items like the belt can be had at other establishments within the same pricepoint without having to wait?

Pretty tough to get a belt of that apparent quality for the same money, believe me, I've looked!

I'm a Gustin fan and will not state where, but I thought this may be a good discussion.

I will be buying the Gustin to support the company. That being said, it may not be a great deal like the jeans.

I'll state that the 2 Tanner belts I got (which my dog ate!) Cost almost double before shipping and taxes and the LGC belts I got to replace them them are 20 bucks more. A bridle leather belt from Equus will run you more than double too. I won't even go into what an Iron Heart belt costs. I've no doubt belts can be had for less but is the quality of materials the same?
I'm not blindly buying Gustin stuff but the belt seems like good value to me even after the 20 bucks shipping

You are stating brands.

There are individuals and smaller brands that can do a 12oz bridle belt for around $38.

Great, so go buy a belt from them. You have the choice to buy from whomever you want at whatever price you feel is reasonable. Most feel the price to value ratio on the belt is very high.

Well put, I found the belt to be a very good deal.

Jeez.

It was just a discussion about the realities of purchasing Gustin because of a belief and support of the brand instead of a price to value ratio.

I already stated I was going to buy a Gustin belt to support anyways.

You Super Gustin Fans need to relax.

There are similar discussion in regards brands as well.

So fucking relax and get of the Gustin Nuts.

Its a discussion.

YOU relax! LGC isn't a brand. Its a one man operation. Equus isn't far off being the same. I'd be very interested in your source for bridle leather belts at 38 bucks. (Even tho its not a huge price difference) If you could PM me the details I'd appreciate it (seriously). That being said; people were entering the discussion you wanted to have, albeit the "go and buy one then" comment could've been done without.
Personally, I'm not buying their stuff to support them. I think they're doing just fine. I'm buying because I like the value ratio.

Yah saving a couple of bucks is pretty worthless, albeit, Gustin is still a great deal.

I'm a 36 and went with the 35" Gustins and they are tight so I hope they stretch out an inch.
