    I thrifted the 12" skillet a while ago before I knew the brand. Been a workhorse ever since and was really cool when I discovered what I actually had. Would definitely repurchase if anything happened to it.

    Gustins are nice for what they are, and if you want to wait for a good model to get funded then sure... Or try your luck on eBay with em.

    However, I don't think $85 for UB's is a waste. I've worn mine for 1.5+ years now, and they've held up perfectly. The denim is nice quality, the construction and small details are on point, and they have some nice fits. I'd say I've definitely gotten more than $85 worth of wear out of them, and they're still actually in great shape... They're just too big for me now since the weight loss. And that's another good thing about less expensive jeans, if they get wrecked or you grow out of them... no big loss.

    True to size 32's I'd say. Gave the IH and Simon Miller's to my brother but still have the others.

    If anyone is familiar with Valjoux 22 movements or buying vintage chronographs in general please send me a PM, I really need a second opinion before firing off on a time-piece. (I think this might be looked down upon in the watch thread).

    Thanks!

    This happened to me about two years ago with a pair of Levi's x Billy Reid. Was so sad.

    On the good news front, though, after losing 20+ pounds they fit again (wearing today!).

    I didn't. What did I miss? Completed Listings didn't tell me much.
