    Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

    @el padre, I have 31 in the '50s and 32 in the S40s. They both fit similar in size - snug out of the wash and roomy after a day or two.

    Jeans after another wash. Wonky lighting and I'm no photographer. Oh well, you get the idea. A few shots side by side with the '50s contest jeans as well for rise and pocket comparison.

    So happy to hear things are recovering, @volvo240thebest. We just got back from a small road trip through the Berkshires. We saw some historical sites, hiked and enjoyed the beautiful spring. It was originally intended as a motorcycle trip, but bad weather and worse luck left us with the truck. It was still a wonderful trip. In order: W.E.B. Du Bois Homesite - Great Barrington, MA The Mount (Edith Wharton home and gardens) - Lenox, MA Twin Pond via Taconic Crest Trail - Pittsfield, MA

    Both of these things are noticeably true. The '50s is easily an inch lower front and back (didn't check the size charts, just going off feel from spending a lot of time in both). The back pockets are also somewhere in the ballpark of 15% larger. I struggle with my wallet and hankie in the S40s. In the '50s, I never even considered the pockets as they just fit/work. As for how I'm getting on with the fit, it's fine. I wear a belt to keep them up and that makes the relaxed and stretched phase perfect. They're soft, comfy and roomy after a few wears and with the belt, they're still sitting nice and form fitting through the hip and seat. That being said, I was hoping that after stretch I could get a bit of anti-fit and let them hang without the belt when wanting something more casual. That doesn't work out so well. The dead straight hip and ultra high rise make them still look trim when slouched (no hip flare) and still at the "normal" waist position for any other jeans, just not the ultra high that's achieved with belt. As for the fabric, classic TCB. At month 6, wearing them on average 6 days per week, the fabric just takes off. The color and texture has come alive and I'm starting to really love this fabric. After the next wash, I'll try to get some better pics posted. But man, I'm falling more in love with the fabric every day since early April.

    A little project on my Interceptor 650. I looped it on some ice a couple weeks back. The damage to the motorcycle was minimal and thankfully no damage to the rider. The jeans made it through unscathed as well. My brake paddle however was badly bent. We manhandled it back into useable position, but I opted to replace it along with the foot pegs for a more refined look and some adjustability in the peg position. Before and after shots here. All executed in all TCB: cap, jacket and jeans. Haha.

    Jeans update - slow and steady. Admittedly not my favorite cut or fabric I own, but keeping on with it. Definitely favorite patch though.

    @julian-wolf, can't get any updated fabric shots as they're down at my partner's in Philadelphia, but here's a couple of the pics I posted last year and a couple I didn't.

    The Foreman Chino, yeah I have a pair. I love them. The fit is great. The fabric has worn well. I posted some pics back last spring, I think.

    I'm selling my Type I size 40 over on the bay. It ought to sell at a reasonable price, if anyone's looking.

    Loving the updates everyone. My jeans are a month and change behind the general pack due to the sizing SNAFU at the outset. They're a wonderful pair of jeans though and I've been loving the fit, fabric and general wear of the fabric. I took weekend trip out of the city to visit Dan Santoro at American House in Hawley, PA and a weekend stay at a cabin in Narrowsburg, NY. We've been looking at property on the PA side of the Delaware for the last couple years, but since the push out of the city has driven real estate through the roof out that way, we may just be visitors for the foreseeable future. The cabin was on what used to be Luxton Lake (Lucky Lake). It was an artificial lake resulting from the dam erected in the first half of the 20th century. The property owner's association boasted its status as the first ever multi-racial property owner's association in the US. Luxton Lake stood as a popular summer home destination from the 50s through the early 80s for a thriving community of black artists, musicians and athletes from New York City. As these things go, corporate logging interests in the Catskills compromised the dam, running heavy equipment over it ahead of a proper bridge being built and ultimately the dam was destroyed in 1983, draining the lake and devastating the local community. One of the pics here features some graffiti LUXTON LAKE WAS HERE. The 10 Mile River still runs through and offers some gorgeous views. An obligatory pic of the jeans, though not for the sake of documenting progress, just the love of wearing as well as the legs that live under them. Also some cool kitsch from the cabin.
