Thanks.

That is pretty much it, except:

 

denim washed inside out.

 

And...

 

some of us wear them damp while in the break in phase, for a few hours, which seems to help mold the denim nicely.  My Gustin Okayama were unwearable upon arrival!  I could not button all the buttons.  Within hours, it was fine, but the damp wear really made them feel as if tailored for me.

Nah you just have to sign up/login to see the prices.

I had rainbow neps and loved the quirkiness and specks of color. Unfortunately I had to sell my pair due to fit.

San Francisco being denim city just sits right in the stomach.

A little off topic, but which manufacturer?

White's probably.
post #2706 of 3563

No way!

Really?

White’s boots was an amazing time capsule of old fashioned American businesses. White’s boots was recently acquired by ABC-Mart of Japan. ABC-Mart sells all sorts of shoes in many different countries, they also own Danner. Danner makes some boots that are ok, but I’m quite disappointed with the direction they have gone in recent years. Not to blow this out of proportion as White’s are still hand made in the USA, but It used to be that if I was asked what’s the best American company I know of I would answer "White’s boots!" without hesitation, but I can’t anymore say this as it’s not American owned anymore...

I got my Grey Slub Chambray shirt today. The campaign closed on 7/1/14, so the the turnaround time was really fast. I just wanted to comment on the fast turnaround and also say that I'm vey impressed with the shirt's quality. I tried it on and like the fit more or less. I will probably be having it taken in on the sides and possibly have the sleeves shortened. I'm used to having to take in the sides on even slimmer cut shirts though. I'll put it through a wash first to see if it shrinks at all. Should I expect shrinkage?

The shirt looks great, I love the slubbiness. I've been looking for a shirt like it for a long time, so was really glad to find Gustin.

^^ Too sad, but such is the free market.

Any update on a skinny fit chino or denim?

If no, understood. If yes, would there be more "room" in the rise area or am I just going to be slowly developing an infertility problem with a nice fade?

Only if the water is really cold.

Why is Gustin buying cotton from and supporting a dictatorship like Zimbabwe?
post #2715 of 3563
Because they are business selling product that people want to do buy. They aren't a humanitarian non-profit.
