Check the Gustin Community board. There was a mix-up and they owned up to it. It's the same fabric with a different ID. If you don't like the new ID, send them email and they will take care of you.

Just got in my grey silks...and they live up to the hype.

Look amazing and feel even better.

Are the grey silks dressier.
post #2254 of 3556
I don't know if I'd say dressier.

They are very sleek looking and the grey color is dark. They have a smooth look and feel to them. I'd say they are a little nicer than your average pair of indigo jeans only because they don't look blue/indigo, but at the same time I wouldn't try to pull them off at any occasion that I wouldn't wear indigo jeans to as well.

They are nice, maybe "dressy" jeans, but definitely jeans if you know what I'm saying haha.

Thanks man, two days in and the stretch to comfortable has settled in. These are going to get some serious work in the rotation.

Anyone have any experience yet with the Grey Silks stretching?  I'm still holding on to a 30 Straight and I love the jeans but not sure if there's any stretch in silk denim, I'm assuming they won't stretch as much as cotton.  Gustin will accept them as an exchange which is great but I haven't decided yet.  I've worn them about a few times at home but haven't seen any real give in the seat and thigh areas.

Thanks. I shot them an email to see what the options are.

Customer Service is quite personal and attentive.  I've had good experiences with them.

Yeah @Oldguy is correct. Their customer service has always been really helpful. The response was if you don't like the ID they can swap them out. They said unfortunately there isn't any of the Grey Silks with the original Blue/Black ID left, so it'd have to be a different pair altogether.

Gustin will accept your "worn" denim in exchange ... that is very generous of them.

They don't have an official return policy, which is what helps keep the price down for us.  

 

I am of the opinion that this is one of the smartest business models since Amazon.  They are using technology at its best and having reviewed their jeans and now oxford shirt, I think they are being overly conservative on what this quality would cost in a brick and mortar store.  

 

We are "instant gratification" customers saving a lot of money by the delay of gratification.  It's not for everyone.  But for those of us on a budget, as well as those who have large families and want to use Gustin for birthdays, Christmas, etc, the wait that yields the savings for us is well worth it.  

 

I'm averaging once a week wear of The Natural...at work!  I'm rotating my other jeans, without trying to get any one pair to rush to significant fades.  It will happen over time.  

 

I don't begrudge anyone the fun of all wear, no wash, but once that mania exhausts itself, there will still be quality denim at a great price, for as long as they decide to keep this model.  

 

In their shoes, I would be tempted to sell to a big company for big bucks!  I hope they don't...at least, not for awhile!   :)

 

It's a great American success story when so little is manufactured here.  Even a non denim fan would enjoy reading about their story.

Question about Zimbabwe cotton:

 

I was told by a seller that Zimbabwe cotton produces better and "more interesting" fades.  

 

I have the Zimbabwe's backed and expect shipping soon. 

 

Any truth to this?

 

The one who said this sells Momotaro and said it is a "huge difference" between them and Unbranded, in quality. 

 

I've read a bit as bout Momotara jeans.  Any comparison to our Gustins?

Has there been any guage on shippment for the Zimbabwe for May? Thanks.

Shipping likely soon?
