    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

    Shoes that look better with age...

    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.

    Yeah I think we’re gonna be ok. My 20s are 31 as well. They’re totally fine. Similar to the way yours are in the top pic. My 32 50s fit great when they’re fresh out of the wash but get really loose pretty quickly.

    I'm a little concerned about being in the 31 range as I'm carrying some extra covid related weight, but I'm hoping I can shed it by August.

    I ordered 31 OW. I have a size 32, 31, and 34 TCB 50s. The 31 feels best on me so I went with that. I also own a sz 32 sugar cane 1947 - I would defintely not get a 31 in those - that waistband is pretty snug. I wear a 32 in earls apparel stuff - gung ho camp trousers and fatigue pants 32 in LVC 1955 - Wish I had gone with 31 on these. But the measurements on the 32 1955 are pretty similar to the sizing chart for the s40's on TCB's site.

    I'm going back and forth on going no cuffs. 31 seems to be a good length for my 517s ( pretty much same hem opening) for No break with pecos and engineer boots. Its just a so final - compared with getting cuffs. who else is going no cuffs? @ecsong187 and who else?

    I’m in! I think I’m gonna go for 31. Tcb measurements for 31 are really close to my lvc 55s in 32. In case anyone is curious. With .5cm higher rise! also for anyone who cares - I own a tcb 50s in 32 and 31 - the 31 looks better on me. 31 it is. In regards to hem - I’ve been wanting to get a pair to wear without a cuff but I don’t think this is the pair to do it with. The hem measures .5cm wider than my 31 50s. I’ll have to see how my 517s compare.
