    A question on length from a total denim noob who wandered in from CM --

    I'm 6'2". All my trousers get hemmed to right around a 33.75" inseam (for just a bit of break). The only pair of raw jeans I've ever owned is from Gap, advertised as a 34L, which with the cuff unrolled is more like 35.25" long. After a year, two washes, and probably 75-80 wears, it's settled right at 34" -- I can't really cuff 'em anymore, but uncuffed they fit perfectly.

    Gustin's 32 has an advertised length of 34". Is that accurate, or is it slightly longer/shorter? Should fabric weight be taken into account, and if so, in which direction?

    I'm asking in the Gustin thread because I really like their styles and what they're doing; apologies if there's a better thread for it. If it weren't for this concern I'd be repeatedly dropping moneys on their stuff.

    Hoping to get that out in Jan. That was our latest sample and we're pleased with it. We'll run it in different fabrics like our other stuff. What you see there is waxed canvas duck, 13.5oz. We just love the way it ages and the weight is just right to give it toughness but still not feel like a straight jacket. Extra pocket is functional and divided into two openings, one is phone size, the other small for a pen. More to come on this soon.

    1. Do you have any other pictures of the jacket?
    2. What other fabrics have you been considering?
    3. Would this be comparable to the Flison tin cloth?

    More pics will definitely be coming for launch. We'll likely run unwaxed canvases and maybe even some selvedge denim in this style. Waxed canvas is kind of similar to oil cloth in that it's treated to get water resistance and tends to show great wear-in. We like the feel of waxed a bit more.

    Will the waxed cotton be sized to go over its same-size Gustin shirting? I.e. large with large...

    I've been waiting for you to do a denim jacket. Hopefully the measurements will work for me.

    Black/Black/Tonal for me please. Also, please bring back the Grey Silks. I managed to resist their earlier campaigns, and now I am sorry. I will back the instant they reappear.

    Pictures don't do them justice. The color is a little darker than I expected. The weight is a little lighter than I'm used to. But the feel of the fabric and especially the sheen on the inside from all the silk is just remarkable. I will bbe shocked if anyone says they don't love these. Very comfortable, and once spring hits (it's cold here in the midwest right now) I think these are going to become a favorite pair. I'm going to double cuff these just to show off the sheen from the weft. I'm VERY impressed. These are my 2nd Gustin jeans.

    Just quoting for emphasis. I turned down the last black offering for lack of weight. PLEASE offer a heavy hitter in black.
    Thanks :D
