    I'm waiting on Khaki Selvedge Chino, which was supposed to ship 2/3/15. I emailed them and they said basically any day now....

    How does sizing usually come out with the jeans waists? 32" is generally ideal for me, and 31W supposedly measures 31.5" and 32W measures 32.5". Are these pretty accurate?

    They've been trying to kill it for ages. Maybe it was time. Or maybe they are revamping (doubt it).

    Sucks that they closed the community page.....I bought/sold a few items from that area.

    Why would they want to close it?

    To keep new customers from seeing people acknowledging the much longer than advertised wait times is my guess......

    I'm on my third pair of Gustins - just backed another pair. But these waits are getting stupid long - they're advertising three months at this point.

    Also, I think they've relaxed their fit - they used to advertise that the fit is as claimed (and it was, on my first pair). Then they moved to 1/2" of vanity sizing - and my second pair actually measured almost a full inch larger than the stated measurement (closer to 33" than 32" waist).

    This is quite lame, if true.



    On a related note, I saw an Instagram post that they made today and the second comment was "If only you didn't have to wait 3 months to have it maybe fit" followed by the third comment of "still waiting for my jeans that I ordered back in Nov..."


    They should address the issue, even if there isn't one, because the silence is not looking good for them.

    My BlackxBlack Italy jeans are all that remains from my October/November buying spree. They were supposed to ship out the week of Feb 9th. I think I'll just tell people to buy from the stock page if they want to try out Gustin without the wait.

    With no new members allowed it was only a matter of time.
    Most have moved over to http://gustinfriends.proboards.com/

    I've watched enough shark tank and the profit to know this is a bad business move.

    Gustin will be just fine. They still make a good product. Yes there has and is a few things that I wish were addressed.
    The problem with Crowd Sourcing is the crowd (at times :)

    Yea, I know. Besides you, I feel like there weren't many people left that contributed much. Hell, I know I didn't haha.

    I really think they should expand their stock program to counteract the long wait times, similar to what Taylor Stitch is doing with their Workshop program. They could still run a lot of campaigns and either produce extra of certain items, or run completely different fabrics, and still do well with a decent markup IMO. I'd imagine that they have enough collateral to explore this after being around for about 2 years, but who knows.
