a machine wash is fine so long as you don't throw your jeans in with another load of clothes. I did that once with my N&F denim and they got streaky. washing denim by themselves is fine though.

I'm guessing most of you do this, but I also turn mine inside out when I do

I do the same.  Wash on gentle cold turned inside out, only jeans in the load.  Hang dry inside (not outside in the sun).

 

I love my jeans but I can't retreat to hand washing my clothing in the bathtub.  That's seems a bit extreme.  :bounce2:

I just got the sand super light 6 oz twill chore coat today. LOVE it. Probably my favorite thing I have ordered so far from Gustin.

I have since backed the navy canvas field jacket. Excited to get that one too!

Never knew that, thanks for the heads up.. Yeah I washed and dried a couple Gustins with other clothes and got the dreaded streaks..

Honestly, I machine washed my Zimbabwe loomstates on hot right side out (still hand wash setting) the last two times. They're fine. Not proof of no risk, but certainly an example of a lucky pair. Or something.

forgot to mention that, I turn mine inside out as well. I think it's important to note that we're talking about jeans. they will fade no matter what any of us do because of the nature of cotton. I'll always do an initial tub soak for new jeans but I seriously can't be bothered with tub soaks/washes for the life of my jeans. I simply don't have the patience for that.

So for new pair of gustin chino it's safe to turn them inside out & put them for gentle cycle wash alone then air dry before getting it hemmed. Or soaking it in warn bath is the way to go? I am leaning towards machine gentle cycle wash.

The chinos come prewashed they are not raw. Washing them on cold and hang drying or tumble drying on low heat should not shrink.

Well, it was fun Gustin. Kinda.... I can no longer buy stuff to sit and wait 4 months later for my order to maybe arrive. Their business model has to change. I don't need t-shirts to arrive in late fall to winter. I need them when I buy them in the summertime.

Crowd sourcing and cutting out the middle man all to provide a superior quality product to the customer at a much lower cost. 

It all sounds good and has been proven to work well for the most part. But what you don't hear about too often is the downside.

You're much less insulated from any problems.

 

If a factory catches fire, workers go on strike or shipment gets delayed then Gustin (and by extension, us the end customer) have very little recourse but to wait.  

If you were buying retail, the delayed product simply wouldn't be displayed, you wouldn't be able to pay for it and you certainly wouldn't get pissed at any delays. You'd also be paying substantially more for any product that you can buy.

Does anyone have any pics of the leather duffel that they just opened up again?  Particularly of the inside of the bag?

I've been waiting on a pair of black high tops since March.  I think I could have learned the trade and fabricated my own pair during the wait time.  I knew what I was getting into with Gustin but the deliberately misleading and inaccurate updates really frustrate me.  They promise delivery dates that don't occur, they promise to provide updates by a certain date and leave you hanging for a month, blame delay on factory shutdowns that they should have factored into their delivery estimate, etc... I've seen lemonade stands run by third graders with more organization and reliability.  I'm going to rock the hell out of the shoes when they finally do arrive though.  If Gustin delivers by the end of the year to make it an even 9 months, I'll consider it divine intervention.
