    Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

    @Chris T That's the look.

    @jewellben These got priority from TCB as they are an additional pair to replace my contest order that did not fit according to the size chart. Standard runs outside of the contest are being handled differently. However, their wholesale partners are getting restocks soon, I think. You could try one of them if you want a pair before November.

    Just got my shipping info for a new pair, size 33. I've never second guessed sizing this much. The 33 matches my TCB '50s and Warehouse 700s most closely and that's the fit I'm going for. If they're bigger than the chart, I will be super bummed. If they match and stretch obscenely, I'll just wear a belt and call it a day. In fact, I bought a Studio D'Artisan belt just for this new pair. Everyone's pics and participation have been great so far. Keep it up and I look forward to joining you shortly!

    That's the one! I would say go for it. I love Moscot frames both for style and quality.

    Yes, standard TCB return and exchange policy is you pay return shipping (no noted exceptions). If you object, e-mail Ryo and see if he'll sort it out. Not much any of us can do.

    I sold my S40s down the road, but I'll be joining you once a fresh batch is available in October. Going to wait on the post-production size charts and get the fit I'm looking for to properly enjoy these jeans as they deserve over the next 17 months.

    Hell. Yes. Mister Bob Roberts. The One and Only Spotlight Tattoo. Throwback to the 50s contest.

    Haha. Any criticism I offer can be taken or left with no hard feelings, at least on the subject of jeans. Point was, to my observation, folks were trying awfully hard to "make it work" and no one had yet stood up and acknowledged that there was an error and that we shouldn't be pressed to "make it work." I appreciate your candor here and at the risk of tmi, I'll certainly accept that criticism up may arse as it'll hit the prostate just right if you know what I mean.

    @BrownMetallic, not sure why you hi-lighted the front rise measurement, but for clarity, that is accurate. The OW front rise is longer on my pair than the size chart indicated. The rise height doesn't bother me, but included the measurement for anyone interested.

    That's about the color of it.

    Haha. Yes, the whole clusterfuck is pretty amusing.

    Oh, and to everyone I hammered with the "trust the chart, trust the chart, trust the chart." You have my sincere apology as I misled you.

    Got my jeans and jacket today. The jacket fits great. It matches the size chart. The jeans don't. The waist simply is not in the ballpark of what I ordered. Measuring according to TCB standard, waist pulled flat (cuz really folks, what's the point of measuring against their charts using a different measuring style?), I have a 28.5" waist on an advertised 30.9" waist. You do the math. @volvo240thebest, I'm tired of your gaslighting around TCB's mistake. They messed up, not the people that ordered a size that did not arrive. There is no magic equation you used that everyone else with improperly cut jeans failed to. My waist measures 31" and I ordered 31". That's your method. That's not my method, but regardless I ended up with a dissatisfactory result and I'm not really interested in hearing how I should have ordered or how I should stretch them out. They are not the size I ordered. Period. I appreciate that TCB will stand behind the product and do what's right to make exchanges, etc. My frustration is not with the solution on their end, simply that this could have been avoided by measuring the jeans after manufacture to ensure reasonable compliance with advertised dimensions. I didn't even need to measure these jeans to immediately see they were much too small for a 31. Finally, I'm not mad at anyone. I appreciate you, @volvo240thebest for the tremendous work you put into all of this. I appreciate TCB for taking on the task of dealing with the many hyper particular denim dweebs that frequent this joint and making this contest happen. Thank you all for your hard work. As for how I proceed, I haven't decided yet. I think I'll end up sending them back as they are the kind of tight that digs deep into my hip bones and I just don't want to wear pants that do that even though I know they'll stretch to be ok-ish. But I still need to try them on again and make a final decision. Measurement Comparison Chart vs. Actual: Standard: Waist: 30.9" vs. 28.5" Thigh: 12.3" vs. 11.75" Front Rise: 12.4" vs. 13.25" Metric: Waist: 78.5 cm vs. 72.4 cm Thigh: 31.3 cm vs. 29.9 cm Front Rise: 31.5 cm vs. 33.7 cm
