  1. Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

    I did the Levisication as well my pair. I noticed as I unpicked that the left over arcs are one stitch and the "full count" looking parts are another, almost as if they were meant to be unpicked.

    All this talk about Type 1s so my lady took my picture wearing my LVC one. It was real oversized at first but after a wash and dry it shrank up quite a lot. This maybe the fit you are after @aho but its only LVC not TCB lol. Im also wearing the 1940s hat to complete the full denim look.

    @Paul T is that the mister freedom peacoat I spy in your hand? I sadly outgrew mine after only a year or two of owning it. I noticed the pocket bags are a twill not a duck, not a big deal but curious about the change.

    ive heard of that color thread being called pigskin and the yellow stitching commonly used referred as lemon. I know A & E makes the big thread spools for machines not sure where to pick up a small amount of it.
  6. Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

    So I wore mine under my bibs today at work and i'm afraid to say but i think im going to have to cut my suspender buttons off. Does anyone have an idea how to do it without destroying the waist band? I am constantly moving around (electrician) and need to be able to bend over a million times a day without having them dig in my waist. I'm excited for the Japanese to join, the more the merrier for sure but nervous I'm not going to place anymore haha, when we only had 20 contenders I felt like it was a shoo-in.
  7. Shoes that look better with age...

    I have the 9874s and the 9875s and the Black Klondikes definitely broke in a lot easier. Both leathers are a step above the regular heritage line except for maybe the Mule Skinner leather, that one is their nicest heritage leather imho.

    Super excited to finally have them in hand. Im gonna throw mine in a quick hot wash with light spin. the waist seems to be perfect and comfortable rise for sure. did anyone else notice the belt loops look like a different denim? maybe its just my imagination

    re: hats I have the 40s hat and its a little loose? I got L because i think im like 59 cm? but thats when I had long hair, I got buzz cut over the summer and its now a little loose. i find it to kinda shrink in the wash and hot dry but nothing crazy? I guess it really depends on how like your hats to fit, snug or a little loose. I prefer mine a little loose because I was scared of having my head squeezed and Id never wanna wear it. I think with the bucket hat style too it lends itself to a looser style, a tight fit might look a little odd. ive sized wrong on denim, jackets, clothes, boots, and sneakers but when i decided to start wearing hats I do what i do most of the time now, size up edit: my head is 57.5 - 58 cm using a cloth tape
  10. Levi's Vintage Clothing

    I just had a Levi's ad on my instagram feed for various LVC models saying 30% off and free shipping using code FRIEND30. Not sure if USA only or what, been reading about a lot of people wanting to make purchases lately.
  11. Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

    I'm still down for a tee shirt. Is there a new total participants list? I remember something about ed getting more people to join. I'm real excited for this to start, I haven't had a pair of unsansforized jeans in about three years.
  12. I think it has to do with the cores remaining white while the outside is dyed so over time the dye falls off and the white core is shown. Sulfur is typically used for black jeans and Kapital has great persimmon dyed jeans in their century denim. I think they have used sumi ink to make a grey denim which fades similarly to indigo as well.

    I'm all paid up! Sorry for the delay everyone, August was a rough month for me, I was not working for a few weeks and wasn't sure I'd be able to still be in the contest. I squeezed some pennies and stocked up on some ramen and pb n js for the next week and was able to finally pay last night. Patch looks awesome, does anyone know what kind of leather it is made out of? The arcs look great too!

  15. I've had eBay purchases from Europe and also orders from Japanese arrive at my apartment. I had to pick up at the post office once because of signature required otherwise I've never had any problems for packages outside the US.
