    Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

    still amazed by the waist stretch. So crazy. I could maybe have gotten a 32 but I think they'd be too big once worn for a while. Still just in one wash state from TCB. Go Twinkies Bob sarb033 TCB s40s pecos boots

    I think this model has surpassed the 50s to become my favorite pair. Loving them so far.

    Thanks! Yeah I really like the length. just a heads up for anyone who is struggling - I’ve got these things stretched out to 32 now. Just barely measuring 16 aligned. Just wet the waist band and wore til dry. 32 was where I wanted to be in the end anyways so I think I’m good to go

    Switched to a blue shirt so my wet waistband wouldn’t get blue all over my white shirt

    No not a lot. But the left leg does have some. I really like the pockets I got

    31 s40s with 31 50s. Mine came in at an incredibly tight 28” not sure what to do yet. The fit in the legs and top block is great. Definitely could wear them unbuttoned but that’s ridiculous

    I've found white's to fit a whole size larger than other shoes. I wear 11.5B in Red Wing pecos boots, and 10.5B in white's. I think it might have something to do with the way the arch is - shortening the foot. If you have access to a brannock device, White's measures your feet with you sitting down. They rest the brannock device on a fitting stool and you just put your foot on it like normal this is the fitting stool I'm talking about.

    Yes. It is. I got the same size as my 50s -32 - the rise on the 50s is 11.5 I think. The rise on the 60s is around 10. They’re unwearable. Sizing up would def be necessary but then the thighs and leg are larger so why even bother? Just get the 50s. They’re perfect.

    Give them a few days on the waist. I bet it’ll be fine

    I would just put that washer back over the rivet and hammer the pin flat

    Thanks! I had been looking for a vintage seiko for a while now and my friend found me one. I had been tempted by that new seiko 5 sports - srpe55. But I think 40mm is too big for me. Also I just love the vintage styles - imagine that.

    Someone mentioned snk809 I believe. Here’s mine with tcb20s in the background. I added the grey nato. I think it’s an improvement.

    I had a pair of the wwii impressions. I really liked them. Wore the hell out of them. Had a resole done locally and they botched it. They were never the same again. I threw them out last year. They’re definitely good for the money. They seem to be perpetually out of stock tho.
