This fabric should check every box in for many of G's die hard denim fans. I'm thoroughly impressed   

 

These will likely be the best jeans Gustin has ever offered (IMHO). 


Those are sweet. Just about 2x my max budget :-(

From my experience, washing on delicate/handwash/whatever is most gentle works very well - jeans are turned inside out, removed before final spin, and left to hang dry. No problematic creases/stripes/awkward fades yet. I think my last wash was on the gustin Italy Midnight Shadow and that was on a hot wash too.

That isn't a manufacturing issue?

Got the #6 brown duck canvas chino.  This is a heavy weight canvas pant (12 oz).  Should be super durable.  Love it for business casual or casual.  I got 34 straight this time (instead of 32 straight last time, too small in thighs and butt).  Tailor altered the waist and inseam length.  Fitting just about perfect now. I might consider a very slight taper below knees on next pair, but this is pretty spot on for what I am comfortable wearing as far as how tight the thighs and butt are. 

 

First couple pics are no roll/cuff...  After that I have a roll/cuff.  I like them better with roll/cuff, at least with boots.  Probably will with shoes too once it gets hotter out.  I plan to wear these year round, don't care how hot I get in the summer!  :-)

Iron Rangers? Duck canvas sounds like a good option. I'm waiting on green to show up again

I have never seen vertical fade lines from washing. I wash cold, gentle cycle, inside out, and minimal amount of detergent. I let it spin dry then I hang them up. I have gotten some weird fade lines from careless ironing. It would seem that running the iron over any edge creating a crease creates fade lines.

I have a pair of loomstate's in size 33 (i wear 31 Gustin) and they fit where I can button them up all the way but are still pretty tight.  So, their suggestion for 3 sizes up is probably correct.
. Someone is going to buy those sweet $300 jeans and mess up sizing/shrinkage. And then they will try to sell them on here or eBay. On that day I will be a happy man.

I like this fit better. looks a tad baggy from the rear though in the buttocks area.

I've had them appear with no ironing, but I thought that was because they were bought from sample sale and were manufactured wrong. I've not had this happen with my first quality raw denim. I also thought it was from the way the jeans were folded when they were stored too.

From my experience it happens when you don't wash them inside out, and if you don't wash them on a delicate cycle.  I've destroyed a couple pairs by just tossing them in like they were any pair of pants, and the vertical streaks were my punishment.

If you're hot washing with a washing machine and hot drying your raw denim with a dryer, you're doing it wrong.  Need to have as little agitation as possible when soaking or washing, and preferably hang dry afterwards.

Yep, Iron Rangers copper rough and tough 8115.  I am really excited about this duck canvas and will also be looking at more of their canvas stuff.

Way more comfortable.  The pics don't do either justice.  The previous oak dyed pigment chinos were tight enough on the butt they were actually stretching the seams.  My wife chuckled at me when I demoed them for her because they were that tight.  That to me is a sign something is way too tight.  These 34s will be super comfortable now that the waist has been altered down to around a 32-33.  The tailor did a good  job.  The butt pics of these 34 chinos actually do look a little baggier in the pic than they do in real life.

Before you ask: I have emailed gustin but I got a canned reply, that my item was being shipped and on the way, which had nothing to do with my email asking that they consider sourcing white denim for jeans and trucker jackets.

Jean Shop Rocker in white is on sale right now at their site for $100.

Dang.  I'm attracted to the #8 CXL boots but I've not yet seen a thorough review on the boots and my inferno tans have been about to ship for a month so I've not been able to test them yet.  Seems silly to order another pair of boots before receiving and testing the first pair so I should restrain myself and wait on the #8s.

 

Like many of you, I'm super tempted by the $300 loomstates.  They look beautiful.  To say I don't need those ultra expensive jeans to add to my current ~50 jean collection at ~$100 more than the next most expensive pair, is an understatement.  But . . . . I don't own any loomstates and those are beautiful.

 

Hmmmmmmmmmm.

Hey thanks for the heads up @Kwaker! Sadly the Rocker sizes are either real small or 34" in the waist. I wear a 31 in Gustin, or 32 if its really thick denim. So the 34" is probably not going to work with my 32.5" preferred sized jeans.

 

I considered getting the Slim Fit white though since I think their 32 might work. But honestly that bright orange stitching is a bit strange. Id prefer something all white. Still, really appreciate the reply, gives me something to consider this weekend and see if I plug the trigger.

Were you looking for white or natural?  Its a huge difference, totally different look.  Gustin periodically runs an unbleached natural and I have a pair waiting in my queue to break-in.  Its a light tan.  White means bleached to be white instead of natural/tan.  I think this pair mentioned above is also unbleached natural, just like the Gustin.  Except the Gustin has tonal stitching.

 

Probably come spring we will see Gustin repost the natural for the summer months.
