I’m dreaming of a (off) white Christmas

Sadly, I’m resigned to continue dreaming. The jeans pictured below didn’t fit. It’s a shame because they’re AWESOME! The “Naturals” are undyed cotton.

I bought these jeans from Kickstartr darlings Gustin. Gustin sources their denim from American-based Cone Mills as well as top Japanese and Italian Mills, rolling out a broad array of jeans using unique fabrics. They introduce each product as a campaign that individuals can fund at the wholesale price. These were $81 instead of the $135 to $200+ I’ve seen locally.

Check them out and please use my referral code 12086 if you do order something.

Gustin also make beautiful belts and wallets for a fraction of the price of what you’d post retail. These too are sourced domestically and made in San Francisco.

More selvedge throughout. Custom Gustin buttons too.

Available in straight or slim. Read up on the Gustin story. Their customer service has been great.

DETAILS
JEANS: Gustin #47 “The Natural”
Material: #47 Cone Mills Selvage, 12.75oz, Red-White-Blue ID
Price: $81 but market-based

PAIR WITH
New Belgium‘s “Accumulation.” White India Pale Ale. Like the Gustin Naturals, Accumulation may appear to be mellow and light, but there’s nothing sweet about this IPA. It’s built from the ground up on a solid backbone.

To quote from their website, Accumulation is a ” direct revolt to the longstanding tradition of brewing dark beers for winter.” Much like the Natural is a direct revolt against the world of mass-produced dark, indigo denim.

IBUs: 70
ABV: 6.2

    BTW: As I mentioned these did not fit. Due to Gustin’s business model, they don’t really have inventory on hand. That said, they do everything they can to be accommodating. Customer service sent out a pair of size 32 Japan Classics which I should have by Friday.

    Thanks @Gustin
