I don't understand the logic in making it more difficult to show it off to a friend at their place.

Just saw this today. It is pretty ridiculous. It's like the "add to cart" to see prices kind of thing. Shouldn't underestimate people's laziness. If people click the advertisements to see what Gustin is about and see there's no prices unless you sign up, you are losing a lot of potential customers right there. The good prices are the main selling point of the gustin model and people just won't get to understand that with the site the way it is. There's a reason why shops don't do this online. I understand the need to be different but they shouldn't be reinventing the wheel like this. Pretty annoying indeed.

That much to ship a shirt to Canada?? That is nuts. The last pair of jeans I got back in the spring the shipping via USPS Priority Post was like $20 to Greater Toronto. The pair of Cone Cross Hatches arrived like all Gustin product in a plastic USPS envelope. I haven't backed anything of late so I don't know if this is recent development. I hope like hell this is a glitch at Gustin's end because I won't be shopping from them if the value of shipping is 80% of the product being ordered. Same thing if Gustin switches to a courier. We get screwed with couriers with cross border shipments in Canada, especially with UPS.

Not if you clear your own, it often ends up being cheaper than the post then. 

There is the inconvenience of having to travel around town between the courier and CBSA though.

Can anyone compare the Gustins to RRL Japanese denim? Which fabric would be similar? How do the Gustin slims fit compared to RRL slim fit? Also, what's the quality comparison?

Any others with the Twenty Six wish to opine?

 

Its interesting reading, especially from those who are "sweating it out" to break theirs in!

post #2617 of 3168

Some time two months back I backed The One Six, that was scheduled to deliver this month in July 2014, three days back I received the email from Gustin stating due to some error they will not be able to deliver this jeans and gave me additional $10.00 and suggesting me denim I did not like the description details. Meaning that I need to reback something and wait for another two months, so I started Googling because Gustin customer service is too bad for me, I have noticed Gustin service only reply to you when there are no issues once you are in something its very difficult to get answers from them. Anyways searching forums I found Gustin denim do not give contrast fading like most of these popular denims from Japan do. I know many popular brands like Edwin, Evisu and many more they do their denim in China and these could not be dyed with real indigo or something that could fade easily. Market knows that trend is for fancy selvedge and mills are on it. Tho they claim these are Japanese, many Japanese companies do their denims in China, with chemical dye just that these are fancy selvedge ... My question here is, is is worth waiting for unknow with your money almost $ 100.00 plus with mindset of Japan & selvedge!!! To me Japan, Selvedge or SFO doesn't mean you will get what you expect from a denim. I remember I had this denim from Indian mill and faded better than one of my PGJ. So its not country but right process. Today Gap creates lot of indigo based garments and you can directly compare with results that Gustin give today with lot cheaper price. My money is with Gustin and I would like to try Gustin, Since I am not getting any answers from Gustin so I am seeking help from you gurus out there or had experience with Gustin, I like jeans between 14 to 16 oz dark indigo that fades with contrast, any suggestions? I do have Gustin credits. Thanks in advance!!!

My Gustin Japan Indigo/Indigo after 3 months

RohitSingh--- I’d say if they re-release the Zimbabwe (which is 15oz) you’d be more than pleased with those as they use the same quality of denim as the best of the Japanese companies...

No fade pictures yet, people who ordered them just received them not too long ago…

I can understand going between the courier and CBSA if it's a big ticket item, but for a pair of jeans, that's way more trouble than it's worth. As long as a pair jeans only cost $20 to ship to Canada via USPS I'm cool with that.

Obviously, but when the same pair of jeans cost an extra $30 via UPS because of 'brokerage' fees, many (including me) are willing to go the extra mile - this has happened to me with expensive jeans and other items. 

 

One time I was lucky enough to find that the overland CBSA office had been temporarily closed and though the staff had moved over to the air office, none of their equipment was available and all my fees were waived.
