    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...

    Hey @ALB! My jeans are at Göteborg Manufakturs shop and has been there since the photoshoot on last thursday. I'm sure they can measure it for you. Shoot them an email to [email protected] or a dm on Instagram.

    Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

    Dang, I've been busy lately. But here's a few pics at least to get us on page 1 again. A while ago I went to visit colleagues in Malmö that has their office in Turning Torso, the tallest building in Sweden. It was pretty neat when we visited the top floor and had some low foggy clouds rolling in beneath us. Also went to a really big day of thrifting last weekend. Basically a large chunk of the city turned into an outdoor garage sale. In 4 hours we didn't even manage to see half of it. No big scores but I did get myself an old leather rucksack.

    ^ Happy to have you mate! @srudy It was just an automatic confirmation. You'll receive a new one when they're actually shipped! @dau We won't accomodate tweaks on the pockets. Of course it doesn't stop you from doing it later on yourself. No hidden rivets so it's not very difficult to re-stitch the pockets.

    Hi mate! I don't think we'll provide that service. It will be hard to keep up the schedule if people can change the details, hemming is a little easier. I will check with the boys though, to see what they think. If it's possible I would be happy to provide the service for the community. It shouldn't be a problem, unless we get a massive landslide of orders, then some pairs will of course take a little longer to finish. But fabric-wise there's no problem. Pretty well accommodating, I'd say. Definitely not as horridly tight as The Flat Head for instance. Hm, I'll check with the boys. Probably just an order confirmation. I'll get back to you.

    @beautiful_FrEaK It will be the new Denim Base top button! Sadly they were not done in time for our sample jeans. Shingo got his first sample of the button the other day. Re judging I think it would be fun if the guys who have made the jeans were judges: Kuniyoshi, Shingo and Sai that has made the pattern. @SLAB My Lee wallet is pretty big and barely sticks out. Shoot the Gbg Manufaktur boys a dm on Insta and I'm sure they can give you a fit pic with a mid size wallet. They have my jeans in the shop.

    Hi guys! Yesterday I got OK from Kuniyoshi-san, he can hem your jeans if you want it. To sort it out, write a comment on your order at Göteborg Manufaktur of your desired post wash length and that you want Kuniyoshi-san to do it. They did stress that you should measure them like Shingo does http://denimbridge.jp/gbg as that is kow Kuniyoshi-san will do it. + Shingo says the shrinkage is still a bit unstable so the numbers will be approximate.

    Hi @Sharik Get it in the same size. One wash basically means they give the jeans a good hot machine wash to get most of the shrinkage out of the way. The raw version will simply shrink to the same measurements once you've washed it.

    Double posting ftw. Have a piece up on the jeans on my blog now if you want to learn more of the patch design and some other stuff: http://indigoveins.com/indigo-veins-collab-jeans/ + Denimhunters did one as well the other day: https://www.denimhunters.com/indigovein-jeans/

    Rivets will be the same as in the pics! A Real mashup, haha. You beat me to it @Broark Like them a lot!

    Yeah, I think that will work fine @JohnM My Ooes are a little more snug than the new collab jeans but I wouldn't advise to size down.

    @JohnM I was lazy and didn't align them like BiG does. Just buttoned them up, put them on the floor and measured them. Sadly the jeans are in Göteborg Manufakturs store now so people can see them and try them on, so I can't measure them myself. But it's easy to just send the boys a message and I'm sure they'll sort it out if you want it BiG-style!

    @maharu If I go by how much the first sample stretched (4 cm-isch) 33 could probably work, though it will put more strain on the jeans. I'd say it depends on how slim you want your jeans. @Babaron Welcome to Sufu! What a great way to kick it off! About the contest prizes, all the details are not 100 % yet, but the winner will get a pair of Denimbridge jeans and also a prize from the boys at Göteborg Manufaktur. So definitely a good haul for the winner! How long do you guys think we should run the contest? The usual 18 months? And are you guys OK to let the Japanese dudes and instagrammers in on it like with the TCB contest? I think that would be fun. Bonus denim pics:

    Hi guys! I'm waiting for an answer about the hemming and we haven't decided how to handle the one-washing yet. Of course you'll be able to change your mind later on if you forgot to mention it, Kuniyoshi-san starts sewing in August after all. Here are measurements after a hot rinse and now a 40 degree machine wash. Waist is measured flat (not aligned) and the rises using Shingos measuring method. So it shrinks a little more than the chart says. But then it stretches out. Size 35 Waist: 42 cm Thigh: 32 cm Front rise: 31 cm Back rise: 36 cm Inseam: 83,5 cm Hem: 20 cm
