FWIW - I have a pair of Lucky Brand stretch jeans that are still going strong after 9+ years! 98% Cotton 2% Elastane. They were comfortable from the start. No holes, no crotch blowout, just some fraying at the pockets and cuff. Sure, they're closer to white than the deep indigo they started, but that's to be expected. I'm into the heavy/raw/selvedge denim thing (don't like the Gustin cuts, however, I'm a regular straight, no taper, 501 kind of guy) but I've never had another pair of jeans last 9 years - especially not with regular wear and abuse! I think a little stretch can make for durability.
Except for IH-634s, I haven't had a selvedge pair last more than 3 years, and that's with multiple repairs.

And... my first testimonial is in!!

"Chris's jackets are stunning, arrived at my home in a package, made of what seems to be leather, with a zipper that goes all the way from the bottom to my neck. Two arms, covers most of my upper body, what more can I ask?"

I've got a couple pairs of those too. They were my main jeans before I discovered comparably priced selvedge. Dude, I hate the Lucky's now! They feel like pajama pants

You know, it's funny, Cyber Lip - I typed that they feel like pajama pants and then deleted it before posting!

Pitched my Lawless refund at a Gustin Grab Bag, and received in return... a pair of the infamous Pima Fires! And you know what? They're a really cool pair of jeans. Very slubby and streaked, though not to the pearl-clutching extent that some have claimed, but also with a slight iridescence to the surface. They're a nice weight, 12oz, and wearable straight out of the bag. Gustin also kindly chucked in brass bottle opener into the bargain, which was very nice of them. Best of all, no customs charges!!

Yesterday I received a Gustin dark brown Horween belt that is 1 1/2 inches and has reasonable heft (thickness) for such a belt. Perfect accessory for Gustin jeans. Even my wife was impressed. :D The belt loops on my Bills Khakis jeans not quite large enough to accommodate the Gustin belt.

Given the loopiness of Lawless, Gustin's no-nonsense reliability is quite refreshing.

I suspect any company can have something occasionally slip through QM that fails to meet the bar. Thus far everything I have received from Gustin does meet the bar.

I like Gustin's 1 1/2" Horween belt and would recommend you order a size 32 belt if you wear size 30 jeans.

how does Gustin's classic belt sizing? Seems like it doesnt size correctly? I am wearing a size 30 jeans, shall I order a size 32?
BTW, by any chance I can get the similar belt in UK?

Does anyone own one of these? They look rather thick, and I've always found the thicker belts to be uncomfortable as they're stiff and tend to dig in at your sides. I often tout the Leather Goods Connection, as they have bridle leather belts and you can customize them in a variety of ways. I have six or seven of them now. They're pretty quick on deliveries as well.

I measured the sleeves in the usual manner and I have them at just a hair under 26" on a size large. Usually I'd like something a little longer than this but on this jacket it works perfectly. Just a couple of quick bathroom shots. (yeah, it's a bit of a mess but we just remodeled and are moving are stuff back in there so...)

And yes, there's not much to an unlined jacket like this, but it's very well constructed, just the right weight in my opinion, and you can't beat the price.

I have to confess, for the slim/ tight fit around the thigh and knee that I like, and +12hrs per day wearing it, without some elastene my feet would go numb and cold inside my boots, probably by the time I yank off the boots my dead feet would come off together with them. lol
they also last a long time, as long as not being exposed to heat during washing/drying, or ironing (I never iron my casual clothes)
but when washed with hot water, soonish it would turn into oversize pajama pants :) true that.
