    Thanks volvo! A quick search on amazon brings up 2 2L bottles for $16 delivered so I may give it a try. If I just brush on a little bit I should have enough for a life time!

    I have a LVC type 1 not the official TCB but I still wanna be part of the crew! I think I have only done initial wash and one other but am tempted to do more after seeing nycsurfer's. I've been wearing them to work and they get grimey fast but I still wanna get nice whiskers so its hard to make a decision. Does anyone know the liquid starch process they have been doing in Japan? I think I remember to starch after the wash and before the dry? I have been hesitant of the dryer to keep as much starch in them as possible lol

    mini update
  4. Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

    WOOOOO WEEEE!!! I took off work today because I'm getting tattooed later and I'm lazy but it paid off because the post woman just delivered my pair!!!!!! I'm about to throw them in for a hot rinse with no spin and then hang dry for maximum crunchiness hopefully! I gotta get my hands on some of that liquid starch.

    Is there a tracking number list? I have no idea how to check where my pair is or what's happening with them.
  6. Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

    I still haven't received my pair. No notes or anything left by my postman so I'm still just coming home everyday hoping they're there.

    I'm pretty sure that part is elastic or something that stretches when you bend over. I like these lowbacks and will get a pair whenever they're available. I don't mind the branding cause I'll be working in them and most of the time have to wear a high vis vest or bright tee shirts so I'm not going for any fashion points.

    I saw these post on IG and sent Inoue a message right away about when theyd be available for sale! Id love a pair of lowbacks for the summer, a nice loose fit for a breeze to blow through. This past year I have fully submerged in the bibs waters and have been loving it. Although I will say wearing insulated bibs all day does get tiring on your legs but you do stay mighty toasty even in 0 degree weather. I sent out my pair on Tuesday with DHL so I am not sure where they are at the moment? I hope everything is in order soon and we can get this thing rolling again.

    My cinch came busted as well. I can get it to stick if I push the prongs through with my thumb behind it. I washed my pair last week with no spin and hung dry. I definitely lost another inch in the inseam but didn't want to dry and lose my creases haha. I have to take some updated photos soon. Got a new tattoo today while enjoying the weekend off.

    I was just about to ask about all this shrinking business. I have mine double cuff pretty wide but only have washed them once with a light machine dry so was curious how much more shrinkage to expect. I wanted to keep the hem by Inoue if at all possible but I feel like Id enjoy them more if they were shorter. Obviously roping will be better if I decide to hem them before I wash them next but I still trying to hold off on that aspect as well but they are getting there for sure. Im going to need to darn and repair these in the future I can tell by the wear especially since I already have some threads ripping.

    Happy New Year!! Great updates and glad to see the jeans in everyones hands! It's always interesting to me how international superfuture is, living in NYC I see selvedge denim often but rarely the true denim elite that we hold ourselves to here on sf. I wish i had more time and a better camera too for more updates but ive been busy working and just lazy haha. i feel honored to have my posts reposted by inoue on instagram although i am not the best at social media. i also wish i got my jeans shorter but ive only done the initial hot wash and tumble dry so there may be more shrinkage for me in the future. Ive been trying to hold out on washing until March? or something. Uncle Karl is an inspiration for not washing for me and I want to win this damn thing afterall.

    Did you pick that last little bit out of the arcuates? I was nervous to do it at first but its separate from the "authentic" arcs. I've been busy working 60 hour work weeks and feel lame for not posting as much pictures as Id like to be. I'm hoping to take some pictures this weekend when ive finally got some time off. This pair has definitely been the fastest fading ive had ever maybe. Ive been wearing them everyday to work underneath overalls and at the end of everyday im surprised i can see that indigo loss. I started following all the japanese competitors on instagram that pop up in my explore and would happy to follow anyone else im missing, my handle is johnbluejean if anyone wants to follow.
