    yeah, I guess I can see what you're saying - heres me in my new TCB 60s. No turn up on 60s jeans.
  2. TCB

    thank you. yes they're 50s. The rise is perfect for me, very comfortable. These are definitely my favorite fitting jeans.

    Got them hemmed on thursday. I'm always a little hesitant with the hemming. These have been hotwashed once, so I'm hoping for a touch more of shrinkage in subsequent washes. They look a little sloppy with anything but the pecos boots. edit - jacket is a 71 Lee 101j I got in nearly deadstock condition from a goodwill. best day at a thrift store ever.

    they were the LVC ones provided with the 1937s *just to clarify - I'm not advocating anyone use any different type of buttons. I'm just trying to say that in my experience suspender buttons weren't uncomfortable while wearing a belt and those who are concerned may not need to request a pair without them.

    When I added the snap on suspender buttons to my 1937s I was quite surprised by how little they interfered with wearing a belt. Something to consider for the 20s TCBs.

    This question can only be answered by answering this question : how much attention do you want to bring to yourself and your expensive trouser hobbies that few understand? Everytime I wore suspenders w my 1915 LVC the "nice suspenders" comments were too much for me. Perhaps I'm weak. Withou the braces cinch backs can fly under the radar - with braces you're letting your freaky cinch back flag fly.

    yeah!! glad it worked out.
  8. I'll second the height talk. 8" is nice, but when contrasted with my semi dress boots - the lower height is way better for walking around town and is more comfortable in general. And I've thought more than once about having them cut down to 6" ( you should ask whites about this aho ) 8" farmer ranchers are brown smooth - it's comfortable but seriously heavy duty.

    Yeah, well I wanted to try denimio for the free shipping. Ill be paying my $30 punishment anyways. Thanks mlwdp - I've actually been there before. Good to hear a good review about their service.

    Been out of the game for too long. the denimio charge for $28 hemming is a deal. Thought I could take my jeans to Raleigh Denim to be hemmed but they quit providing the $15 hem service. Took up too much time and heavier jeans much up the machine. Shame on me. just thought I'd put this out there as a PSA.

    ok. so kudos to Denimio for the super fast shipping. jeans arrived this morning. size 32 raw measures Waist - 16.25 across the top thigh - 12.75 knee - 9.5 inseam - 39 front rise - 12 back rise - 15 hem - 8 7/8s

    So I think I may have inadvertently ordered the same size as what I got for the TCB contest. I went back through my paypal payment and saw that I ordered a 34 Raw ( the whole process for ordering the contest jeans was completely backwards to begin with. Looking back the whole process from the beginning dealt with size charts etc that ended up not being used - a lot of which was perhaps difficult to communicate via translation / non native english speakers. ) So what I believe I have found out is that the sizing for the contest jeans was different than what customers will currently receive when purchased either thru TCB or denimio. Wish I had checked that earlier.
  13. $$$ SOLD $$$
  14. price drop - $115
  15. I've never seen a pair of 1000m boots that looked good after a bunch of wear. My friend has a pair and they've got loose grain all over the place. I think the red wing GT is way better for the money.
