    I know this is for another forum, but I'd love to get in on a 10oz work pant. I would dust off my contest legs and sign up for a new forum to get down for sure.
  2. What about Jeans Jackets ....

    @cottonskinblues I have no idea how many actual washes. I wash it every month or so from fall through spring. It's had at least 20, I would guess. All different detergents, laundromat machines on "Colors" setting, tumble dry on "Medium" heat. It was OW from Burgus. Proof that you don't need to buy raw to get great wear from denim. Just live in it, wear it like it's skin, wash it when it needs it like anything else. The manufacturer and fabric took care of the hard part for me.
  3. What about Jeans Jackets ....

    Honestly, @swiss-jeansfreak, I think I prefer it with the button missing at this point. Not sure if it's visible in the photo, but I swap my eyeglasses for sunglasses in and out of that pocket constantly, so not much need to keep it buttoned. Thank you, @Bobbo, both for the comment on the jacket and the well wishes. The first accident where I lost the button was much worse than the second. I injured my chest and shoulder and was off the bike for about 3-4 weeks. The second I managed with alarming grace. Got doored by a cab, but landed on my feet, bike three feet behind me, then gently rolled down to my knees. Didn't even scuff my hands. I take it as my one get-out-of-jail-free card. Hopefully I won't have another accident any time soon.

    Hey dudes, apologies for the absence. Documenting my life this last month and uploading it to the internet has run at odds with my personal headspace. The jeans are great. I love everything about them. I have a couple photos to upload later. For now, I know my time has come. Volvo or Ooms, if the jeans are in fact destined for Ooms next, can one of you please message me his address? I'll get them in the mail tomorrow.

    oomslokop, thank you for your kind words. The Morgues are doing well. We're playing a show tomorrow night. The Bombay // '69 Ranchero 7" record has been out for a little while now. All analog, nothing digital. It's available through us, The Morgues. I appreciate you asking.

    gnomes, mine are 32. They are roomy when I button them and that's just how I like it. The TCB measurements are post-wash. They shrink a little in length after a hot wash and warm tumble at the laundromat, not much in the waist. The waist will stretch about an inch like any others and quite quickly in an active lifestyle. I wash them every week or so and after five or seven days, they feel much bigger in the waist. I would size up to the 34 and wear them LOOSE. That's the look.

    I've been steady on the TCB Seaman's Trousers this summer. I was walking down Green Street past Blue In Green when I was stopped by a photographer. He asked if he could take my picture. I consented. He gave me his card and said if I e-mailed, he'd send the photos. The highlight is definitely those damn jeans. NE corner of Green St. and Canal St. New York City, July 16, 2016. Photo: Alejandro Garcia. That denim... Finished out my front with Chuco Moreno wearing the same trousers. And grabbed a fun one from Bert Krak. Design from a 1983 National Design sheet drawn by Crazy Philadelphia Eddie.

    I didn't really know where else to put this. Blue In Green just underwent a massive remodel and expansion. When I walked in and saw it on Friday, I knew I wanted to photograph it for you all. I asked Naoki if it would be all right for me to come by Sunday to do so and he graciously agreed. Here are the results. I won't clutter it with words, but if you have questions about anything specific, please ask.
  13. RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    You know, strangely, yes. My TCB Seaman's Trousers are roomy all over and a size big in the waist, but I still notice a considerable difference in fit after a wash. The waist shrinks down, the rise feels a little lower and the seat is more snug.
  14. TCB Happy Jeans contest: final submission thread

    A fitting end. Congratulations, Volvo. This was a true testament to labors of love from the brand to the contest to the pants and on to the contest submissions and results. Thank you.
