It appears to be a pretty clean break.  Wouldn't a tailor or denim repair shop be able to fix and re-enforce that pretty easily?

Seriously though - bummer about the jeans. That's a great fabric. 

 

It was actually a form-check video that I took a screen grab of...but for someone outside of the circle i can understand your sentiments.

 

I know...the indigo color was spot on what I wanted in my life...

That's what I was thinking too. The jeans have yet to be hemmed, so they were due for a tailoring anyhow. I e-mailed Gustin about it to get their opinion/advice. Yes, they were indeed snug, but I wasn't egregiously abusive or anything...AND believe it or not they were about a week away from breaking in perfectly.

I might be convinced to pick up another workshirt now that I have my size figured out. It would need to be a unique fabric, and at least 10 oz. An 18oz Super Heavy Slub would be nice. biggrin.gif

Hmmm that crotch failure was those jeans committing a mercy suicide.  They felt so guilty destroying your genitals for 3 days that they tried to relieve you of your misery.

 

Let them have their way . . . . get the crotch sewn up, leave them unhemmed, and sell for $1 OBO.

 

A week from breaking in perfectly?  haha!

Those of you who have the natural 2s, I assume you also experienced extreme shrinkage during a hot soak. How much can I anticipate these guys stretching back out, because they're uncomfortably tight, both in terms of wearing them, and looking at them...

It's funny I just packed a bag to go see my gf for 5 days. In it were 2 pairs of gustin jeans. 5 gustin tshirts. And 2 gustin ocbd.

Does anyone have these problems with their Gustin White Low Top Sneakers?

I'm trying to figure out if these somehow snuck past QA...

 

These are the first batch and have only been worn 4 times briefly around town since I've gotten them.

 

Stains inside the shoe

 

 

Leather around the punched eyelets cracking

 

 

Leather that is dry and cracking

 

post #8064 of 10351

Here are some other sneakers with punched eyelets that I own as a reference.

 

2 Year old Air Jordan 1 Mid Tonal White

 

8 Month old Buscemi 100MM Tonal Black

@hehedavid Does the leather feel dry? Have you emailed Gustin?

post #8066 of 10351

Hi @avsmusic1 I have not contacted Gustin yet and yes, they do feel dry. I wanted to see if others have the same problems as I do.

I'll be curious to see the same. 

 

I wouldn't hesitate to reach out to G at the same time though - I think you'll find their customer service is very helpful.

I thought the Brushed Back Superlight would have made a perfect workshirt. Would love to see you find the Postal Herringbone again, but I think you said it was deadstock. Aside from that, I'm looking for a non-indigo selvedge workshirt. Japan Olive, BrownXBlack Herringbone, Okayama Grey Shadow are a few that come to mind. 

post #8069 of 10351
My 2 cents on a possible workshirt fabric is that I would instantly back a return of the Japan Khaki and seriously consider a black heavyweight fabric. It sounds like the consensus so far is for non standard indigo fabrics...

Making my first venture into selvedge chinos with the wheat selvedge ones today... Although, since they aren't long enough for me to cuff I can't really show the selvedge id anyway...

Looking forward to some more chino choices hopefully soon!
