    I don't know, but it looks like it closed in less than 10 minutes.

    The grey silk are a denim that got super popular even before a single pair made it into people's hands. No clue why, but whenever Gustin runs a run (even if it's a sizeable run) they sell out in minutes, one time in under a minute. I haven't actually met anyone who genuinely likes the pair they received. But that's not on Gustin, and kudos to them to keep bringing the people what they want. There are other brands who would just sit on a popular style because they want to do other things, branch out, or would be jacking up the price on a super-popular denim. Gustin will just keep selling those silks until people stop buying them. I'm sure they'd sell just as fast for $10 more a pair, and Gustin could pocket an extra couple hundred dollars.

    Well come on the only other supplier of the grey silk fabric was 3x1 and they wanted 650 a pair. So why the hype generated was the silk factor and the rare fabric along side it. The sheen is very unique as well. I would assume why the runs are so few and far in between is this stuff only comes up once in a while and some is sold to others in various amounts first. I don't get why people in the wholesale market like we are in with gustin expect to see a constant number it can be variable at that level.

    Scarcity, by itself, doesn't quite justify the demand. It sells like hotcakes, and did before anyone really had a chance to get their hands on it. So my point really is that I just don't see what's actually causing the strong demand.

    There is a remarkable lack of pictures of the grey silks...at least easy to find via google. Just one in this thread, I think, and that's close up so hard to get a sense of how they look. Come on people, we need a fit pic!

    Here you go. Had to take the dog out so I snapped a picture. This is straight out of the [iphone] camera with no adjustments. The shirt is a grey Kent Wang rugby.

    I like my grey silks, i wore them to work yesterday. I typically wear them once or twice a week. I have 8 pair of gustins, the grey silk is a nice change fron indigo and black shades of denim

    These look pretty solid. Which style are they? and are they slim or straight fit?
