While I don't feel quite as strongly as @whiskeyriver about the makeup, I do agree that the two pocket design would have been great for that heavy chambray. I would have no issues backing it with the current design b/c I like that design well enough. The two pocket design would have been a better fit though IMHO
Also, @mountainman3520, I agree that there are factors that we accept in exchange for the lower price point but it's important to remember that the idea of "value" is specific to the individual. In other words, one person may accept a $10 discount for a 2-3mo wait time while another may want $50. Similarly, those two fictitious individuals have different thresholds for "quality" - one misplaced stitch may be a non-starter for one and the other may be fine with a 1" thigh variance. All I'm saying is that if all the Gustin made products aren't at at the exact same level as an IH products it wont matter to some people - many wouldn't even notice. Personally, if they are w/in striking distance it's good enough for me.
