The ultimative Denim Trouser Thread?

A little wider in the hip and seat area. They come in black as well.

Sounds excellent - is the "boot cut" they do flared a bit, or is it more liked the Wranglers, i.e. wide enough to get a boot in? At that sort of money if they have a decent zip, they're well impressive.

Our local supermarket brand does some surprisingly nice jeans for this sort of money, but whereas the ladies' range is broad fit wise, the men's is still all hip-level and skinny legged.

I believe they do sell the boot cut version as well or they automatically fit boots. These are specifically work jeans.
I recommend buying from Correction Connection over other stores. The customer service is excellent.

Thanks, I'll add those to The Shopping List!

Just a word of warning, Gustin’s main jeans factory in San Francisco is running slower than usual. I ordered 23oz black x black jeans in late November and still waiting:

I’m ok with the wait on these due to unforeseen circumstances, but I’ve also backed the dark olive whipcord jeans and there was no mention of production delays - though I’m sure they will be sewn-up in the same factory.

I have received a few items recently. I think they are pretty decent quality overall.
Another great recommendation from FL .

GUSTIN JEANS REVIEW:
I waited 3 months to receive two selvage shirts BOTH with crooked pockets. I won't even be able to wipe my behind with them.
I have emailed these photos to the Gustin Team. Hence I have cancelled all following orders with Gustin. Better to trust the Japanese than Americans.

That sucks!

Typical American Retail from the way I see it. I just sent them a letter chewing them out. These pics are going ALL OVER the internet.
They better refund my money and cancel all the other orders I have with them or that shit better show up in pristine condition.
PROOF that I am better off buying from the Japanese.

I ordered a shirt from them years ago that didn’t make it out of QC: I waited three months only to got a refund plus a credit for my inconvenience. I’d give them a chance to make this right for you if they can.

I’ve noticed my pandemic orders have been slower than normal - it sounds like quality control is also slipping.

Sure I am definitely giving them a chance. They can refund me and send me a pre paid shipping label. I'd be happy to oblige.
Anything less I won't budge. I have no mercy for junk products. That's why I spend a premium and wait patiently if need be. Companies can blunder on their own dime.
I have no patience with junk merchandise. We as consumers have suffered through years of Asian made junk. If a company wants to sell made in the USA at a premium they better give the premium they charge for.

A button has already fallen off my shirt after trying it on twice. :)

Have you guys looked at the upcoming SJC trousers and jacket?

I pre-ordered a pair of the Battle trousers, if they are the same quality as my pair of SJC Yard Boss, they'll be amazing!

Wanted to pull the trigger on the jacket too, but it'll definitely be too short in the sleeves, as usual.
Very Unique looking. Pike Brothers has some that look somewhat similar but these take the cake for sure .

Hi there all, I hope you are well.
I am looking for a detergent recommendation for my jeans.

Want to wash my jeans at my local laundromat pretty regularly and trying to ape the color of 1970's/ late 1960's Levi's. Not an expert on this, but I have gathered that optical brighteners were standard in detergents in the US at that point. I'm not sure to what extent, or what else was going into detergent formulas at that time, or anything about detergent really.

Anyone have experience in this direction or tried for something similar recently and have anything helpful to share? If someone could recommend a widely available detergent in the US that resembles the 60's/ 70's formulas, or at least will get similar results, I would appreciate it... I'm thinking there could be an easy on-the-shelf solution here, but I've only used Dr. Bronner's (very gentle).

Back in the 70's and 80's we used to wash our jeans with the white colored clothing....bleach and all.

What kind of detergent would you use? Have you found that detergents have changed over time?

I seriously doubt the detergent makes a difference. Back then it was all about the bleach mixed with hot water and white clothing which caused the fading. Be careful though because new jeans will bleed color in hot water. I would wash the jeans separately once or twice in cold water before I put them in with the whites and bleach.
TIDE detergent is very common in America. Chances are I was using it during the 80's :)

I think the nation of origin is irrelevant to the rant.
