    Interest check: Denimbridge contest

    I really hoped too! I won't join but Maynard will and he will provide large amounts of grade A entertainment to the contest, hopefully.

    Interest check: Denimbridge contest

    I really wanted to join this contest, fabric, craftmen behind the project and details are amazing, Bobbo is one of the nicest guys in this community and I'd love to support him, but the more I see the fit pics the more I think these will look bad on me. The combo of wide thighs and a taper it's not a look that works for me and not either a style that I wish to pursue. I am sure this denim will deliver amazing fades and look forward to watch the contest from the sidelines.

    Maiden voyage for this new pair of Bob Dong jeans plus the same stuff I've worn every day for the last two months more or less.

    This fit is so good that needs to be quoted.

    Damn @Bobbo that means i would need a 36. You wear a 35 in these what size you are on tcb? 33?

    another good point re hem, if I factor in a 30' inseam and only a small cuff I may get away with it. My waist circumference is just shy of 35 inches and I wear a 34. I think I may need a 35 on these according to the measurements though.

    I think the shaft of my White's it's much wider than average. Anything smaller than 8.5 won't work. I may have to buy a new pair of engineers???

    good point! scroll down this page and you'll get an idea http://denimbridge.jp/overseas I assume measurements are post shrink/wash? I am wary on the tapered hem width, 8 inches is within jegs territory for my standards and would mean I won't be able to wear these jeans with engineer boots. mmh... everything else sounds nice.

    I think you nailed it pretty well! if it stretches with wear you could still give it a hot wash and tumble dry.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    Tcb makes very high quality jeans and often are in the same league with stuff priced twice their cost. The most incredible price per value pair I have are chinese made jeans by Bob Dong, the model is called n31 and it's loosely based on the 47 cut, slim straight and high rise. I am wearing them everyday now because at the moment they are the only pair i have that fits and that's not too heavy for daily wear in warm weather, i bought them maybe five years ago and never worn them because back then they were too tight. They cost 30 usd (plus shipping from China). Fit, fabric and craftmanship are in a different league compared to everything can be bought for the same price. I havent worn them enough to tell how sturdy these will be, i believe wrangler pro rodeo are hard to beat as far as sturdyness is concerned.

    Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

    haven't worn the contest jeans in a while but I hope to be back soon. I lost much weight and with the cinch completely tightened the jeans feel a bit weird, and apart from that the drain cleaner stains are horrible. Looks like I have stains of ambiguous provenance on my legs... Anyway I plan to mend a patch soon and come back to action soon.

    thank you for understanding my influencer powers and my overall genius. At the moment I'm interested, pending measurements and further information on the pedigree of Fido the dog. I'm wary of the backpockets too tho. that teaser pic made me think that the back pocket are maybe too small, or maybe are too wide and will make my butt look weird. I won't kop if the backpockets are less than 17,5 cm wide and if there is no more than 12 cm between them.

    It is wild long staple cotton from the valley of San Joaquin in California and was harvested by hand by a guy called "Bob". He has 4 sons and a golden retriever called "Fido". Both Bob and Fido are lefties.

    Better to gauge your sizing by chest measurement than from others. I am 82 kg with a 103/104 cm bare chest and the 42 fits fine.

    TCB

    Shameless plug no. 2 tcb tabby's vest in brown covert chambray, size 44. same as below, too big now due to weight lost. It's one of the quirkiest and most brilliant designs by tcb, imho. they call it brown covert, but in fairness is definitely grey, looks lick a thicker mocktwist grey chambray to me. Tcb sells it for 120 eur, it can be yours for only 80 eur plus shipping. Basically new. Measurements: pit to pit 60 cm overall length 67 cm

    Shameless plug, I need to sell this Tcb Catlight chambray shirt, size 44 (XL), genuine reason for selling as they say, I've lost 14 kilos and the shirt is huge on me at the moment. Measurements Pit to Pit 60 cm Shoulder seam to seam 50 cm overall length from collar base to bottom 79 cm sleeve (shoulder to cuff) 67 cm Worn 5 or 6 times and washed twice, basically new, still very dark. Denimio is out of stock, and Tcb sells this for 125 eur. I'm looking for 90 eur plus shipping.
