    Not off a 30C wash. In fact they come up a touch bigger than the chart. Not sure if a dryer would shrink them? If interested, let me know mate and I can give actual measurements.

    @istewi yeah they're mine mate. I bought them raw when they first came out years ago, pre-order by email before the web store etc. I can't remember what happened re shrinkage specifically. The denim is stretchy - if I was asked to guess I reckon they ended up close to raw measurements. Calling those in the 20s contest... can anyone help with this? The contest thread is back on page 7 here so will have loads of details in there... Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread - superdenim - superfuture® – supertalk

    Y. M. Factory - not unknown any more but seems the best thread Jumped on these t-shirts as I like the neck particularly and tried to buy before but failed Too eager to pull the trigger - they're too big - in fact a little bigger than the chart Anyone interested in them lemme know... While I try to work out how I could use them (oversized summer t-shirt for good airflow???)... all ideas welcomed!

    TCB

    All good reading and info Bartles I see the TCB jacket will use the same 12.5oz denim as specially made for the 20s jeans... really lovely denim it is too - see below for a pic from Oct 2020 (coincidentally). A well-worn jacket in this denim will look awesome, no doubt Ryo's dress length looks good, sleeves look the part in width tho on the longer end of the spectrum The buttons are another interesting point... The FW 1927 jacket has unbranded, white/cream, small buttons... I include below pics from the denim jacket book showing similar Looks like the 20s jacket TCB built from has branded and slightly smaller buttons - and looks like they've been consistent with that As with previous TCBs, the proof of the pudding sizing will be in the eating (I remember Ryo saying they make a pair of jeans then extrapolate to estimate the sizings across the range before they make them)... therein lies some excitement to come (vicariously for me)

    TCB

    Agree the more splayed collar on the late 20s style is a nice change from the (also very nice) 40s version I have On top of the collar and curved pocket, I also like the wider sleeves (I did a comparison fwiww against my early 1946 CSF somewhere, will dig out and link it in again) and the boxy fit. I also note the FW sleeve length is a touch on the shorter side than my other denim jackets The TCB measurements above (thanks @bartlebyyphonics ) just shrieked spreadsheet analysis at me! So using the latest post-wash measurements on my FW size 44, I've taken my constraining dimension of P2P / chest (based on the TCB chart above) and compared based on that... there's quite a variance (all in cm)... maybe an extra wash will bring it in, as per @istewi Would be interested in TCB sleeve width measurements to see where they landed on that (One of the Levis experts here may chime in with some period correct sleeve guidance here) Hastening to add there's space for all of this in the denim universe, whatever works works

    Nice… is it worn in? Post some pics if you get chance. I may be running into being told to read the thread but I’ll risk it and ask anyway - is there a pictorial comparison of the various jeans and jackets denim anywhere?

    The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    @generic_guy great spot… yep Court Force High from 2005… all confirmed via @Double 0 Soul’s trick there… thanks gents It transpires (as I just took a closer look) they’ve been stored in a Dunk High box and not worn in 17 years until recently I now recollect I gave my old man the all black Dunk High, clearly minus the box

    I have the Ironalls jacket, PowerWear striped t-shirt and henley in size 44 - all comfortable fits. I've got an Ironalls chambray (#2123001) coming in 17. Based on your sizing above Duke, 17 should work but 17.5 may have been better. Anyhow it's too late now - the boat with the parcel set sail a month ago now, so will get here... eventually!
