    Thanks @Maynard Friedman! Yeah, I wear it for layering every now and then around the year. Definitely speeds things up a bit.

    First (?) proper update on my 30's jacket. Had it for about a year now or so. Maybe 2 washes, I think. bonus TCB 20's x-post from the contest thread:

    Vintage Denim?

    Jack's got a way better collection than any of us!
  6. Hey guys, I have some very exciting news to share. Soon I will release a collaboration I’ve done with my good friends at http://www.goteborgmanufaktur.se and Shingo-san of Denimbridge, sewn by the one man army Kuniyoshi-san of Double Volante in their new project Denim Base. 14 oz greatness made in Japan with a really nice vintage vibe to the fabric and a lovely olive herringbone fabric for the pocketbags. Measurements: Size W26 W27 W28 W29 W30 W31 W32 W33 W34 W35 W36 W38 W40 Waist/inch 25 26 27 28 29 29.9 30.9 31.9 32.9 33.8 34.4 36.4 38.4 Front rise/inch 10.6 10.8 11 11.2 11.4 11.6 11.8 12 12.3 12.4 12.6 13 13.4 Back rise/inch 12.6 12.8 13 13.2 13.4 13.6 13.8 14 14.2 14.4 14.6 15 15.4 Thigh/inch 11.1 11.3 11.6 11.8 12 12.3 12.5 12.8 13 13.2 13.5 14 14.4 Knee/inch 7.5 7.6 7.8 8 8.1 8.3 8.4 8.6 8.7 8.9 9.1 9.2 9.2 Leg opening/inch 6.9 7 7.1 7.2 7.3 7.4 7.5 7.7 7.8 7.9 8 8 8 Inseam/inch 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 Shingo measures the front and back rise a little differently which gives different measurements from the BiG-method. Here you can see how he measured them if you scroll down: http://denimbridge.jp/overseas Fabric: A14 oz denim with a very light pink selvedge-ID made by a blend of US cotton. It was made to capture the essence of vintage Cone and I'd say it turned out very well. It starts out flat and uniform before it hits water, then it crocks like crazy (which you kind of can see in the pic above). Should get some nice vertical falling, going by the washed samples. The fabric is made exclusively for Denimbridge by Yamaashi mill in Okayama on a Toyoda shuttleloom. According to Shingo it's a small factory which is an important factor for both Shingo and us in this project. If you want to see a little of how the fabric ages Shingo has started using it for his latest Denimbridge cut. http://denimba.com/denimbase/2018/11/03/23478 Since there's been talk about doing a Denimbridge contest for a few years now I was thinking now might be a good time with a special release. The jeans will be made in August so a contest could be possible to start late September. The prize: The winner will win two prizes: a pair of Denimbridge jeans, sponsored by Denimbridge, and also a prize from Göteborg Manufaktur. Pre-order: The pre-order is running until June 15th via https://goteborgmanufaktur.se/brands/goteborg-manufaktur/goteborg-manufaktur-x-indigo-veins-x-denimbase-gbg001-jeans-pr.html I'll have more info to share in the next couple of days and will post more details about the jeans. But for now, what do you guys say, shall we put up a contest? Participants: Beautiful_Freak (confirmed) Tigerstrom (confirmed) Srudy (confirmed) Thanks_M8 (confirmed) jegr (confirmed) maharu (confirmed) space_cowboy (confirmed) Babaron (confirmed) Broark (confirmed) longshanks ALB (confirmed) unders JohnM (confirmed) Edit: I will continue to update the first post when we release more info. Here's sneakpeak shots to get a little bit excited:

    So how's the waiting coming along? I can report that Inoue-san has started cutting the fabric earlier this week. Here's a few pictures from when Shingo visited him last summer: http://denimbridge.jp/2018/07/08/9136 Btw, looks like we'll be a little more than 50 people in the contest, 20 from Japan.

    Lots of work lately and TCB 20's just got back from second repair. But I did find time for a wee festival with Tame Impala and The Streets to name a few. Bonus bits and scraps from the last few weeks. Extra Christophe Loiron-kick. At least I'm wearing TCB pants.

    What about Jeans Jackets ....

    Fades slowly yeah, but definitely worth the wait. Lovely denim.

    Haha all too trye @schmallo15 We'll probably go down that route. Btw, today is the last day to preorder, so don't sleep on it if you're still on the fence. Can't wait to get this started!

    Got a reply from Kuniyoshi-san that he will be able to sign the pocketbags.

    Wrote a short piece of our partners in Japan and their background on my blog: http://indigoveins.com/the-team-behind-the-collab-jeans-gbg001/ Some of the info about Sakamoto denim is from b_F's links but perhaps you'll find some new info about Kuniyoshi-sans backgrund etc.

    @dau Shoot the Gbg Mfg boys a note that you want them raw. Better safe than sorry. @d-rew12 Yeah I get that. Not a massive difference betweem the 36 and the 38 though (except in the waist). Give it some thought, you've got a couple of days before the preorder closes, although I'm pretty sure the boys will order a couple of extra pairs to have in the shop. Could probably swap sizes then if you want to get them for the preorder price. Btw, we have around 40 orders now, so it looks like it will be a decent contest!

    @srudy Shoot me a dm with your name and email. I'll see what we can do. Totally forgot to ask Kuniyoshi-san about ut. @d-rew12 Don't have the raw measurements I'm afraid but I did get 3-4 cm stretch in the waist.

    Hi mate! Happy you like them! Yes, it's after shrinkage. Just beware how Shingo has measured the jeans. Of course there's no worries if you want to alter them.

    Hi mate! As much as I'd love to have you onboard @UkeNo since you were the first Bridger amongst us, I need to think about it and discuss it with the other gents.

    Well played John! Edit: Might as well spam with some more pics. Jonas, the skinny one of us is wearing the old sample which is slimmer than the final jeans will be. Don't think I've mentioned that, but might be good to know!

    When I'm in between sizes these days I go for the larger one, if the waist is a little big there's always a belt to solve it. Not much to do if they come up too small. Done that mistake too many times before...
