    This issue (especially given that it's the second screw-up I've received from Gustin this week) was off-putting enough that I cancelled an order that hadn't funded yet. If I could cancel the other two, I probably would. This sort of thing is absolutely horrendous for maintaining customers. They're going to have to come up with something incredibly special for me to consider funding another item. I'd rather buy indirectly from Ebay where at least I can request measurements for the actual item I'll be getting.

    Like I said with regards to the PB Flannel issue, it's hard enough to determine size based on measurements even if you CAN rely on the company to get the order right.

    Has anyone here ever received a refund for a product that failed quality control?

    Given the likelihood of screw ups it would be ridiculous to receive store credit, wait an indefinite amount of time for a campaign that you like, and wait another 1-2 months for a potentially defective product

    I had an issue with a pair of slim fit jeans having pretty much every dimension a size larger compared to the fit guide. I returned them and was given the options to take either store credit or a refund.

    They also paid the return shipping when they had verified that the issue is real.

    I really hope Gustin is addressing their quality control issue. I've yet to experience problems with their jeans. But on my King Ring, one of the Chicago screw came off after a few weeks of wear. I was lucky to find it on the floor of my car. But I'm having difficulties of figuring how to tighten up the screw as there's no grip on one side. But, it's all good. I actually won that piece on their facebook drawing. I don't know if I've said this but I hope it's not too weird...The fly construction of my Heavy Weight is not as quality as my Iron Heart 634S...I mean the stitching feels a bit on the flimsy side like the stitching is all over the place where as on my IR634S the stitching has more uniformity and looks stronger. Also, I coped their Black Ballistic Backpack and I really really hope it will withstand the test of time.

    So I have a question. Does Gustin actually use Chicago Screws on their belts? The item description states that the belt is riveted. I've already contacted customer service about returning this one. I'm just hoping I'm not stuck with store credits, as I really don't think that's right in this situation.

    The more I look into these things, the more I want to say, "Forget buying pre-made belts, I'll just make my own."

    Oh, and I'm spoiled on run of the mill denim now that I've acquired that pair of Roy jeans... [​IMG]

    I think their belts are just riveted.

    Bro, I'm becoming more of a denim snob by the minute. I picked up a pair of Gilded Age Gotham raws. A year ago I would be bouncing off of the fucking wall but after owning a pair of Iron Heart and Full Count, I'm like meh...I'm still waiting to cop a pair of Samurai 25th anniversary raws for a good price.

    I know what you mean... I have jeans by Gustin, Tellason, Flint & Tinder, Canton Overalls and Roy (not to mention the other ones in my Ebay inventory). I've become so enthralled by the Roys that only one or two others even get worn. I'm really intrigued by some of the super heavy denim from Iron Heart.

    The funny thing is that all of these are better than anything I owned prior to 2013... I blame Style Forum.

    So this happened to my duffel today:


    [​IMG]


    Had about 10kg+ of stuff loaded in the bag.

    Took it off my shoulder, and during that motion I suppose the opening latch part must have momentarily been subject to the full weight of the bag - with the result of pulling it wide open as there's no proper lock mechanism in the hook design.

    I managed to get the hook forced back into the normal position with a pair of pliers, but am left wondering how many repeat moments one can go through before the hook gives in - clearly it's not made for this level of stress.

    This would of course be a complete non-issue if the carbine hook used in the bag would utilize a better design:

    Something to consider for future revisions of the duffel, I hope.

    Whats Gustins returns policy? If you aren't happy with the quality (i.e.: the duffel) is it just bad luck, you're stuck with it?

    Gustin waxed canvas duffel in black. Everything looks great, have to give it a few weeks to see if any issues arise. Some pics: http://imgur.com/a/yYmTU .
