    Great! I'll look forward to them. Thanks again.

    Glad to hear it worked out, and I'm kind of surprised that the sleeves fit you. What dress shirt sleeve do you usually take? You've got an inch on my and I usually take a 35.

    Ever think of making some chambray cloth to make pants? Specifically using your jean design(as opposed to the chino design)?

    The brown organic cotton's are great looking, but once you go north of $175, the deal is off for me with the Gustin wait time. I'd rather go try something on and be sure for that price.

    Is there anything special about organic cotton as opposed to regular cotton? I've looked online, and I can't find anything but that it's better for the environment.

    34.5" sleeve is perfect for me. I think my arms might be a tiny bit short for my height? This shirt measures in at 35" and looks like the sleeves could be 0.5" shorter (but I am not complaining after wearing Gitmans for so long).

    Every time I back a shirt, a new fabric comes out about a week later and I think "oh, I like that fabric, too!" I have been tempted to back the blue selvage oxford after just receiving my Japan blue oxford :plain:

    I have generally found it to be softer, but I have never had organic denim

    Got shipping confirmation of the Thomas Mason gingham. Earlier than I was anticipating - hope it fits!

    My understanding is that organic cotton does not use pesticides, like organic fruits and vegetables Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I share your sentiment. I've had like 5-6 shirts come in and I have about 5 more. They fit so damn well

    I've read that myself. But how does that add value? Particularly since we don't eat it. I understand that it's better for the environment. But we are talking one pair of jeans and $170 seems like a steep price increase for a feature no one seems to be able to rationalize.

    One word, scarcity. I believe Gustin stated that organic denim doesn't come around often when compared to their other more common fabrics. I haven't seen organic denim being offered anywhere else, and when you consider how much other brands charge for their jeans (eg. Tellason, 3sixteen, Rogue Territory, etc) all of a sudden $170 isn't so expensive

    Also, this is just my personal preference but I like my organic cotton blank tees precisely because of its environmental friendliness.

    Still, Gustin should change the whole "$205+" thing for those organic jeans. It's bad marketing... Other brands would probably be $300-350 for those beauties...
