    Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

    @bartlebyyphonics great set of photos, thank you! I love looking at denim. @Paul T massive respect for you teachers! But less so for you shedding your muffin top. Mine has gone in the other direction. I blame lockdown but I think we all know I'd have expanded just the same without a pandemic...

    Time for some ongoing maintenance: Making a right hash of this. The needle is currently MIA as a result of pausing for a photoshoot. I have another needle but I don't want to risk pulling the jeans back on until I know the first one isn't hiding in there

    Somewhere at my parents house there's a picture of me in actual Geordie Jeans WAYWT '84

    @Uncle Karl @chicote Oh man, nice. I definitely got to move around more.

    @beautiful_FrEaK congratulations, all the best! Strong knee fades and more frequent washing coming your jeans' way I suspect

    @mandel9000 great vintage look! I need to get mine washed more often I think

    Yeah I keep telling myself this when I visit this thread. Especially when @Uncle Karl has just posted an awesome update.

    Got to confess, I've not been 100% faithful to these recently. I think the actual contest may have run off into the distance now, unless I unexpectedly switch careers and start working in a quarry, or something

    If these don't work, you might have to give up... Pre soak fit looks good, hope he enjoys them - they're beautiful jeans.

    Thanks! Mine were OW but they still shrank, about an inch in length. But to be honest now I think they're done shrinking, and it's me that's expanding. To be fair it's only the waist that seems to keep getting smaller, not any other dimensions Been washing lots and sticking them in the dryer, so I'd be surprised if there's any shrink left now

    I swear these keep shrinking with every wash. It can't possibly be my waist getting bigger.

    That's very sad @volvo240thebest, thoughts with you

    They look great now. Yeah I'm 32 in IH and 33 in FH 3XXX, but after a few washes the FH are very snug, 34 would probably work better.... It keeps me honest though

    @mpukas @lee porter my 32 rfr004 are very very similar to my 33 FH3009: Both have been washed a fair bit, so the shrink is all gone. The RFR shrank less I think and stretch a tiny bit more, but not a lot. They are beautiful and @Danny @ Rivet & Hide will be spot on with sizing help. The denim has a amazing texture but is somehow still subtle. I'd love a 3005 fit in the same denim...

    Not sure if I just got lucky but the blue wabash is holding out for me so far. And fading nicely as well. Given how slow I am at fading the outsides, I might start wearing them inside out?
