    ^^^ It's okay guys..... I get what barrelntrigger is saying. Just wear them and let them do their thing. For my first pair of selvedge raw denim, I got a fairly heavy and stiff pair. I read somewhere that soaking them right off the bat gets the starch out and I thought that would help with the stiffness...... but I didn't realize I was probably going a little overboard by rinsing them off with the shower head and letting the excess dye rinse away. I see clew's point in how that sort of defeats the point of raw denim..... or at least is a little contradictary to the point.

    One thing about Gustin, raw or not...... the quality of construction is better than any other pair of jeans I've owned.

    I'm done fussing and I'm just going to wear them..... just like you guys all say. Now let's quit fighting and somebody buy the pair of Iron Rangers I have for sale in the marketplace so I can back another couple pairs of Gustins!!

    no worries mistercitizen - Fades are not the driving motivator for many of us and you still have plenty of opportunity to develop some. To clew's point, probably less chance of really high contrast fades than if you hadn't soaked/rinsed them, but it's not a big deal IMHO. I typically soak mine up front to avoid ruboff onto my tan leather car seats and my current pair are fading fine.

    GREAT first pair of raws too

    All good, Ben. But just know this washing your jeans a hand full of times or even rinsing them won't prematurely lighten your jeans or the fading won't be noticeable unless you've wash them hardcore for a few weeks to months, maybe.

    Yeah...I didn't mean to imply there was anything wrong with it, just was wondering why as it's not something I see people doing

    Any plans on making a heavier indigo workshirt? I like the approach of the Cone 101 shirt but I would really love something with a bit more weight (+14oz, like the Japan Black workshirt).

    I know 14oz is great but i own an IH 12 oz (IHSH 33) & it wears like a jacket. It feels a lot heavier wearing 12 oz up top than when on ur legs

    I'll keep an eye out for a good fabric option. Just haven't landed on quite the right fabric yet.

    @joshgustin - thinking of a timeframe for that CPO? Or sweatshirt that was teased what seems like forever ago? Those WS are burning my cash. :)

    CPO is next up. Lining up fabric now and doing one final sample we expect back next week. I want a CPO as much as you do. I haven't even stolen a sample yet for myself.

    We're picking the knits back up shortly.

    Have you seen any brown weft denim heavier than the 12-13oz range we've seen. Would love to see something made around 15-18 oz if possible. The warp could be dark like the persimmon or lighter like the blue neps. PLEEAASE!!!

    This is super late as I got the jeans about 2 months ago...but on the off chance - anyone have a size 30 or 31 Japan black/black they wanna size down on? I have a size 29 slim that's too tight in the seat for me. I could stretch the waist, but it'd still be too tight through the butt and hips.
