    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I backed the Blue Line 2, I made a mistake in ordering a straight fit jean. Seeing if they will resolve it to the slim fit. But being a tall 6'6'' construction worker I will give feedback to the built tall guys here once they arrive.

    I have ordered three pair of the Straight legs over the last (6) months and found the first pair to be a bit more snug in the waist and hips then other jeans in my "size"; thus I went up a size and all is good. While I'll spend $500 on shoes no problem, I cannot do $200 on jeans. I think the Gustin's are great deal - contemporary, top quality and solid fit. Next it will be a shirt....jtb

    I'm with you, I too have ordered three pair of their jeans and am very pleased. Struggling with the question of hemming them straight or hemming with enough to roll. I'm an older man and am not sure how the rolled jeans will look on me. Shame because I really want to show off the nice green weft on the one pair. Just ordered a shirt to try, have tried Ledbury, but they are a bit young for me, and like OBDC shirts.

    Just backed my first pair. Went with the Postal Blue in the slim fit. It looks like an interesting color and nice to have something not super dark. Looking forward to seeing the construction and fit in person

    will these jeans fade like my old KMW , i got these to replace them.

    33 straight fit classic denim
    they fit great, a little looser than my KMW 1950s that I had, but happy with them. just concerned they won't fade.

    Just received my first pair of Gustin Jeans - standard fit broken weave material. Great cut for me, was what I was hoping for. They are a little tight but hope they stretch enough to work. I am having issues posting pictures so I made my avatar the pic I wanted to show you - the Broken Weave fabric compared to a pair of washed but unworn Lucky jeans and a worn pair of Eddie Bauer jeans. Hope the pic helps those looking at the next round of Broken weave material.

    If anyone knows what to expect from the broken weave as far as stretch please respond.
    all the best and headed to duckob

    I'm sure chinos would be very popular, assuming they come up with a cut that people like. I think that's something they have in development now, and I'm excited to see what comes out of it
