I remember reading that belt sizing was a bit off but man, I didn't expect it to be so oversized. I bought a size small after seeing it was mean for waist sizes 32-34 but it's clearly more like 34-36 if not more. Too bad as it is an awesome belt. Back to Gilt it goes I guess.

Oh well. Back to Gilt it goes I guess.

Yeah, they are way oversized, especially the washed belts. On the raw belts, I am the middle hole on the S. However, they apparently overestimated the amount of shrinkage from the washing process, so the washed belts size huge. I am the last hole on an XS, and I am about a 31-32 waist.

I think you have the same belt. It's the black leather with the oversized buckle. Even with the XS, I figure I'd have to use one of the last holes to make it fit.

Belts are crazy oversized. I have two belts (basic and embroidered). I just took measurments of other belts I own and had them custom cut it for me.

I tried on a pair of button fly rockers today which are resin coated, really like the fit and detailing of them. Anyone have any experience with this version of the js rocker?

Yup both in 13oz and heavyweight versions. Dont know if the heavyweight has a resin coat, but the 13oz ones do. $290 for 13oz and $300 heavyweight.

The denim is made at a real gem of a find in the Bronx.

I have the button-fly rockers in X fabric, which is what they called it at the store. I really, really like them. I've got a pair of both APC Rescues and KMW 1980s, and the Rockers are by far my favorite. I sized down three, and they took their damn time stretching to a comfortable fit, probably 3 months or so of wearing them 4–5 days/week. I've had them for about 13 months now and I'm contemplating giving them their first wash, but I'm still up in the air. I love the way they fit now, and I think they'll last quite a while longer. They did develop holes behind each knee right after a couple of months. They're small, no bigger than a pencil eraser, and I left them alone and they haven't gotten any bigger. They've maintained their color pretty well, and the fades that have come through are mainly in the thighs and the back pocket from my wallet. I definitely recommend them.

Can you tell me where? I'm trying to start my own denim line...Crisp Denim.

Haha. It's good to see you guys caught the show. Eric's cameo was brief, but good. How are you liking it? As far as the resin coated denim (X Fabric), it takes a little longer to break in and the yarn coating keeps the jean dark through more wear and washing than the original fabric. The Heavyweight has the same coating on the indigo yarns.

Thank you for the kind words about the staff. We all do our best to give every person the highest quality customer service anywhere. And let me tell you, with the economy as bad as it is and the effect it has had on people's spending, that can be a challenge. Haha.

Come by any time and we'll pour you a shot of tequila.
