I think it will work, I have taken in a lot of pants and never had any problems. If you or anyone you know has a sowing machine it's very easy to do yourself

I like the examples used within this site for measurements.

if you want to get into denim, the point is kind of to buy a pair new or raw, and they fade based on your own wear.  They are more expensive than standard 501 levis, ~$200, but worth the investment.  Another option is the LVC line from Levis, should have them at your local Barneys.

APC may look cool but their fall apart after a few washes. Yes, you CAN wash raw jeans just hang dry!

I would head on over to www.weargustin.com to pick up a pair for $81 to $99. I have their Heavy Americans and for the $ I paid, the quality is pretty awesome! I know Mark bought like 4 pairs and I'm sure he can back them as well. Also, I love my LVC but they don't fade very well...

Messrs. Joseph A Bank told me that "merchandise is not billed until shipped, a pre-authorization is obtained when the order is placed, it will automatically drop off your statement."

Hope you guys get that straightened out. I guess I'm glad I missed those few pages of the thread when the sale was announced and assumed to be real, ha. BTW, your store website looks awesome.

Thanks for the feedback, it's a work in progress. This one is just a trial for now. Personally I find it a bit quirky and slow.

Size down one if you are buying apc or ask for actual measurements. Literally only buy new standards or else your nuts will be crushed also possibly butlers but those are pretty baggy. If I were you I would stick to 501s if you troll eBay for long enough you can find lvc's or big E redlines that are mislabeled for a song

I just got word that my pending paypal order for Nathans from Jos A Bank will be released today, so if yours is not being released might want to shoot them an email.

Everyone says that about apc and I don't doubt it but the pair you sent me is still going strong with almost daily wear and multiple washes I don't even see the beginnings of a crotch blowout and someone must have worn them for at least a year before me
I have been wanting to try gustins but I stick to only 3 pairs of blue jeans at a time right now it is acne apc and lvc. I actually like the fact that lvc's don't fade well because I have them as my permanently dark jeans
