    Perhaps this has been discussed at length but isn't it immoral as fuck to use Zimbabwean cotton? I don't see why it's so widely touted...

    Great point - I'm sure it's a situation where the companies involved in producing the cotton will say they are empowering the agricultural workers of the country, whereas some human rights organization will say those farmers are being exploited by corporations. I have some homework to do!

    But then there's this too - we don't even know where our cotton typically comes from (Pakistan? Bangladesh?). Cotton workers are hardly likely to be treated much better there. At least this is a known devil.

    So got a sizing question...

    I backed a 34 straight a while back and it was too small. It did come in a little smaller than the fit guide.(0.5-1.0" in the waist) Was able to pull them up but couldn't get any buttons. Tried a second time and was able to just get the bottom button, but none of the others were close.

    How much should I size up? 35 or 36? Don't want to have to go through another return. So disappointing.

    Thanks for any help.

    Anyone interested in some pics I just posted a ton on Instagram (dwall203) http://instagram.com/dwall203 let me know if there is something in particular you would like to see. For the record I am just shy of 5'10, 150ish and this is a size Medium.

    davidw25,

    Do you own any Gustin shirts and are you a medium in them too?

    Gustin jeans made from sanforized raw selvedge denim from one of the finest mills in Japan. Another rare black selvedge denim, this fabric has a black warp on white weft, so it retains a true denim look and feel. It also has a lot of vertical grain and nice cross hatching, which should lead to excellent fades over time. It's a solid 13.0oz and finished with a thin pink selvage ID. If your closet is full of blue, try this one out.

    Can confirm that a medium Gustin shirt translates to a medium trucker

    Edit: this thing is nice.
