    Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

    yeah but how do they already have it and TCB doesn’t? unless they are just taking pre orders. also, I’m hoping sizing on the new batch will be the same...

    @volvo240thebest killer fit man! U really nailed it. So we took the kids to the zoo today. First complete day of wear... thanks to my 4yo daughter for the amazing picture :-/

    I was also very suprised to see this. As Ryo told me the regular run would be ready mid October... Haha I like how u put that. Honestly I have been wearing Ooe’s WW2 cut for like 8 years straight now. (I have 4 pairs of those) I love the ‘44 501 repro’s but I’m quite surprised at how slim these 40s actually are in the top block, no hip flares even...

    Haha I usually never use it on denim either. Just pondering on a way to lose some of that itchiness. lol Guess it’s the combination of starch, hairy denim and a smaller then ideal size...

    Ok so I’m chucking these in the machine again. Hoping to lose a bit more rise, length and itchiness... anyone used any soap and or fabric softener yet? The itch is killing me when the sun is out...

    Superb Fit! I’m still struggling with the cuffs myself... Damn that’s nice man! Does your wife happen to travel to Antwerp from time to time? ;-))) I am so jealous of people that master the art of drawing. I can’t draw a stick man to save my life lol... anyhow, day 3 update: these are (literally) growing on me. The waist is now at a few mm’s from 43cm. That’s beyond raw measurement. I’ll most likely wear these for 18 months without too much of a problem. I am considering another cold soak or wash to get rid of some more starch. They still feel quite sandpaperish on my inner legs. Unless someone has another suggestion to get rid of this feeling... (the thing I hate most about new jawnz.) I guess a beer gut is just not a good combination with super high rise jeans. So every soak or wash will likely be a struggle. I’m definitely getting one of these in 34 OW when the regular production run starts. But I’m also really thinking of a pair of 50s.

    Nice! U are making me feel the need for a pair of those 50s... Nailed it buddy! Perfect fit. wish I had that much room in the top block.

    I thought I recognised em. I also have those, pretty good shoes tbh. Looks like a quite effective way to break in a new pair indeed.

    @Broark Looks like those might be PF Flyers... @beautiful_FrEaK oh no I suggested the 4 year contest because of start date and the history. U’ll probably have better fades in less time then I will. I’m still mostly a weekend warrior due to my job.

    Hahaha I feel u. That’s why I am still in the market for a 34. Contest or normal pair... the long awaited fit pics... @BrownMetallic Killing it with the next level fit pic!! On point!

    I’m also still hoping to get a hold of a 34. But honestly these have stretched to fairly comfy in just a couple hours.... sadly thighs don’t stretch and I’m assuming the rise would have shrunk a bit more if I could wash/soak warmer and longer. at this point they fit me like a high rise 66-47 ish cut...

    This seems very plausible. Al I know is that Ryo and Hiro based their 03 cut on an actual WW2 501 that they own. So I’m assuming it was the same for the WW2 pair that TCB used.

    I was told by Ryo and Hiro a long time ago that this is periodically correct for a WW2 model. Al my Ooe 03’s are also like this.

    Damnit! Guess you’re not up for a trade with a 33 ;-) nice fit, good luck! Perfect fit buddy! should we make this a 4 year contest?
