  1. Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

    Some musings from the week... some pork belly, spring flowers, and surf
  2. Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

    @bartlebyyphonics my thoughts on 50s vs 20s fabric. 50s is definitely slubbier, however the 20s, while softer and lighter, have a grainier texture almost like a soft sand paper (an oxymoron I know). Looking forward to everyone getting their jeans back and this thread returning to full glory

    I machine was and machine dry my jeans twice as I find with tcb fabrics there’s is still some shrinkage to be had after one wash. But I would hate to lose the Inoue hem depending on the length or the look you’re after, try a folded cuff so you can keep the original hem.

    this may be a question for a later date, and doesn't affect my enthusiasm one way or another, but is regiment still ponying up on prizes or are we competing for pride?

    Oy vey, sorry about all the customs fiascos, hopefully the American participants to get too much of a head start.

    @volvo240thebest this makes me think of jared lee when he was on the cover of the book "Men With Cats". I believe he's rocking the 50s contest jeans in the picture.

    the best part of buying from TCB directly is you get to have Hajime hem your jeans and you'll have the best roping imaginable.

    I would almost think sanforized fabrics to be weaker simply not because the fabric itself but because people tend to wear them without a wash and the starch still in the fabric.

    Really liking the length and leg opening of my pair. Have some fits with different shoes— 70s chucks, 997 new balances, Alden boots. As far as I can tell my jacket is actually more inconsistent/slubbier than the 20s jeans. Perhaps my jacket being washed over a dozen times has something to do with it. Or the way the loom is set up makes each pair unique. Also interesting is that the jeans have a slightly more beige tone to the weft while the jacket’s weft is much brighter and whiter. Also here’s a bad fit pic with my ranchman shirt, some sashimi and the view from the Marin Headland’s from a hike a couple days ago

    @srudy what’s your Instagram?

    Later today I’ll take some pics of a side by side with my jeans and my 30s jacket to compare the fabrics.

    Just got mine from the post! Washing right now. The jacket is my 30s for a tcb Memphis cotton tux comparison.

    I see what you did there- no worries gnomes. Hopefully you don’t feel like you’re in the batters box facing a 3-2 count. We would love to have your participation and updates!
