I may be guilty of not-minding it. Enough canned orders and I get a free pair of jeans :-D

Yeah, I'm wanting the khaki one badly since I really need a brown workshirt, but the weight is too much for Florida summers. I wish they'd use some of the interesting light weight materials for a workshirt or a CPO. Yay, another run of the blue chambray with white stitching, can't get one of those anywhere else:( I'd kill for a CPO shirt made with that chambray with tonal stitching. Not every CPO or workshirt needs to be heavy.

Would really like to give Gustin's button-downs/workshirts a shot, but struggling with the fit.  I think others in the thread have also mentioned the need for an "athletic" cut, so I just wanted to be one more voice for that.

 

Looks like currently my best bet would be to order a standard cut medium (I have a ~42"-43" chest), but I have a 31" waist, so I end up swimming in a 41.5" waist cut.  I've had to overpay for custom shirts to date, but would love an alternative that had more taper in the cut.

I love how bitchy this thread gets sometimes...
 
 
Carry on.

I could care less how the percentages fund...  Everything funds like @avsmusic1 said.  

 

 

I for one, I would like to see more denim sewn up tonal.  (black fabrics aside, they are usually tonal).

This is funny b/c I saw the chambray WS come back and thought "man, if only that fabric was heavier." I'm in CT though where there is plenty of heavy WS weather. That's still a great/classic looking fabric though so I may jump on it just b/c 

 

I'm really pleased that Gustin has started responding to the WS requests though. We can all think of other fabrics/characteristics that would make our ideal option but I'm just thrilled to see the WS available again in some great, albeit repeat, fabrics.

 

A very sincere thanks to Josh and crew.

This has happened several times in the last couple months, but most of the time campaigns are dropped if they're not meeting desired funding goals, rather than left in the store for the full 14 days with no one backing them. The cap-toe boots would be one example, but I stopped trying to keep track of the non-funded items some time ago. My point is that if you want to see what doesn't fund, you have to keep a close eye on it, they don't leave non-funding products languishing.

Why are people so beat up about the progress indicator occasionally being off /Gustin manipulating it? If you like an item and back it, then great, you're still getting the product. This just means that the overwhelming majority of the time, you don't have to worry about your item not funding.

I think the manipulation is partially based on stock items though, since sometimes people fund a product and it ships a few days later (even if it wasn't in the stock section). Or, they simply met minimums - does it really matter if you're getting the item?

It's a pretty cheap alteration to get the box pleat sewn down for the button-downs. Workshirts you can get darted, although I wouldn't recommend doing so before washing them at least once.

Agree 100%. I've always assumed they've met a minimum and are holding the order open to see if they can sell out. This makes complete sense to me.

Disappointed that the workshirt today is another reissue. Can we see some of those new fabrics we suggested please Gustin smile.gif

I'd pick it up in a heartbeat if I didn't already have three other daily chambrays from Buzz, Workers and Post O'Alls, not even counting the cheapos I have for getting dirty. I already have the first run double indigo which is a daily now that its's chilly in FL. I'll again say that a CPO in any denim or chambray (at a decent price...not a wool CPO price) would be an instant purchase.
