Any thoughts on the Graphite Brushed Bull Denim Trucker?

So if you wash before wearing you won't obtain super fades correct? I prefer a super thin single cuff but if I hem prewash they will be too short (which I fear in about 4 pairs).

The High tops that are made in Italy are amazing and smells great lol. Sole is an off-white color, which does look nice. But the sizing is where it confused me. I'm a 8.5 on the brannock device, so I got a us8. Big mistake, these are too big and are longer than my nike us9. Gustin should label these uk sizes, NOT us sizes because a "us7" in gustin would be perfect. 

(us7 gustin = uk7 which = a regular us8)

Let me know what you guys thought about the sizing.

thanks 

P.s. If anyone would like to trade their sz7 for my sz8 let me know.

 

(Gustin High top us8, 350 yeezys us8.5, 750 yeezys us6)

I just took in my blackXcoal (16 oz) to get altered.  I hot soaked them and dried them first.  Man were those things stiff as cardboard.  I cannot even imagine the 21 oz.

 

Just backed the Heavy American 16.25 oz jeans. 

 

PS - Gustin please campaign an olive green canvas chino or army green canvas chino.

They are pain & big pain what did you get done? And you recommend soak them & let them dry before taking them to tailor.

Mine should be here soon as well! I love the heavy denim. Right now I've been wearing the Gustin 23oz for the past 40 days. They soften up after a few weeks. HAHA! I have a pair of the Gustin 26oz, and I think the 23oz actually felt a little stiffer. It all depends on the weave and thread size.

Respect brother respect, if it had zipper it would be much better. But it still is very good & 21 is good enough for me biggrin.gif

It depends. On the heavily starched denim, if you wash some of the starch out, the creases won't be as sharp, and it will cut down on the fade lines a little. I have been warm-soaking almost every pair just to get the inseam shrinkage out of the way (every pair of Gustins I own has shrank in the inseam). Pairs with more than 40 or 50 days of wear still have a lot of fading. I'll have to grab a pic of my AM 16ers. They have about 150 days of wear on them, and they have a lot of fade lines.

Unless you buy them tight and expect them to stretch, then all you'd have is a broken zipper.

I have been buying two sizes up in the waist so the thighs and butt fit me right, then I have been having them altered in the waist and the inseam length.  I heat soaked them first before getting them altered to hopefully minimize shrink after the are altered and if I wash them.

 

Yep, I would recommend a soak cold or hot depending on how they fit, hot if they are big on you, cold if they fit pretty right or little tight and dry...  hang dry and then alter.  That way if you wash them after the tailor/altering the shrinkage should already be mostly done or all done.  Just my opinion, some people are pretty religious about not washing their denim at all.

Thanks, I had been wondering about that and good to hear from somebody that has put good wear on their Gustin jeans that after a soak they will still get some nice fading.

That is truly the most painful part of the heavy denim, trying to button those damn buttons!! Haha! Take a Sharpie or other fat pen and jam it in the button holes and twist it around a little to soften the holes a little. It works.

Thanks will give this a try.

Maiden voyage of my Camel brushed twill chinos today. I absolutely love them. The fabric is great and the fit is spot on. The only thing I don't love is the segmented button fly. Never seen stitching on the fly like this before, and will take some getting used to, but more than worth it for a fit like this...

I wouldn't worry about it. The marginal impact on fading isn't worth the risk on inseem shrinking. It's highly unlikely it would even make a difference you'd notice.
