    Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

    Always looks the same under this tree, but it's 30ºC today – jeans still manageable for now... I generally carry this Filson bag when out and about; it's included here to show the source of eventual fades Papa Nui PT109-er cap to tie things together nicely

    Neck is fine, man... better than not being able to comfortably fasten the top button, as is sometimes the case for me (I'm the same jacket size). I don't have a TCB jacket, but my LVC Type I and II are both tight at the topmost button – I never do it up all the way – whereas my Freewheelers Type I is perfect all over. Still, I don't use that top button...

    ^ score! I can comfort myself for missing out by remembering that the waist and leg measurements would work better for me if they were reversed..

    ^ Damn, @oomslokop, you've been smashing it lately on various threads..! My Hawaiis aren't quite as far along, but the patch is indeed still hirsute. My Okis are pretty venerable by now – I should take pics

    I think that's the shirt he was saying he'd sized incorrectly from a few years back... this next one should be a better fit!

    ^ yes, hope all is well roomtemp – looks very much like Sydney at the start of this year; don't know what we'll do if it happens again, as we relied on a lot of firefighters from the US to help out..! Looks like Thursdays will be the main opportunity for getting out and about for this year, at least: ..all the other garments are Orslow, I believe it's not that I engage in mad frottage with all and sundry – when walking around I tend not to have cuffs; roping happens quickly. Jeans are a touch long, as at times I step on the hem if my footwear isn't chunky enough to keep it out of harm's way. I may give them another hot wash and trip through the dryer to see if there's more shrinkage to be had.

    That they do.. no pics, but I was caught unexpectedly in the rain yesterday and my white laces are now blue. The white leather of the sneakers isn't too badly stained, though, so I may just change the laces. It's kickstarted the roping process, at least..

    I'm finding them quite roomy, after a couple of days' wear... for my body type, sizing up 2" from my usual produces a comfortably snug fit around the old love handles with plenty of space in the rest of the top block. Loitering with hands in pockets is a breeze, compared to my usual snobbish thumb-hook
