There should be a small tag inside the waistband that has #xx written on it. Google Gustin plus that number and you should find the original item.

Seriously, my first thought was I hope these are 34/35!

Motion to not acknowledge any of @Takai's posts until the rolex issue is settled.

 

All in favour say "Aye"

So what fabric are they? I've already got my quota of Gustin jeans, so I don't need more...

i bet its #75 okayama std. amirite?

 

EDIT: actually i doubt it is... gustin are nice but tbh i've come to the conclusion that stf is the only way to fly with the denimz. seems like all the "boutique", "artisanal", "slow fashion" stuff is sanforized these days. boo.

I've had mixed results with unsanforized denim. The Gustin Loomstate denim were too small to start with, despite ordering up, and the LVC's I have didn't shrink enough.

Motion to leave @Takai alone and let the rolex issue die? Maybe it's fake, maybe its taking too long to get authenticated or repaired, maybe he's giving the original owner a chance to reclaim his mistake, maybe he had to flip it quick to score some choice denim. If he eventually posts details and pics, that'd be awesome. If he doesn't, I'm sure he has a good reason. All I know is that if hounding him hasn't produced results yet, it's not going to. I'd hate for him to quite posting because of something like this.

E-thrift. Not sure how thrifty it really was as I had myself in mind and the seller had another in blue. I thought I could grab them both, but it turns out other people had discovered them. Anyone here grab the blue one? I think it went for $45 or so. Got this for around $30.

I did! I did! smile.gif I got a blue one about a month ago for $41 or so. Was in mint condition too.I assume you're talking about something more recent than a month ago?
