    New Contest Suggestion [Poll]

    guys, I'm sick, full of painkillers and cranky as fuck today. I just don't see the point of using a poll and discuss pages over the color of the pockets and the position of the arcs, the thread gauge and so on. I would leave this stuff to the professionals (Warehouse and the shop who's actually investing in this contest by accepting a batch order for a minimum of pairs that will surely exceed sufu numbers). We never organized contests in this way in the last few years, it just sounds like a useless waste of democracy and a loss of time, if I may respectfully say so. All these musings about little details gives me unnecessary headaches. I may be biased because I had my fair share of dealing with four handed royal denim wanks when dealing with the organization of tcb 20s contest, even without a poll. I'm happy to sit in the back and see what you guys agree with this time. As long as it's a 5p jeans design, I'm happy anyway. Maynard hits the point to me anyway, do we want to play or do we want an exclusive pair of wh full of bells and whistles? I just want to play. I do it for the fun of sharing bits and bobs of my denim life with like minded fellows and because it seems I need some extra motivation to commit on a pair of jeans. all 5p jeans measurements posted will work for me, W34 and WH standard inseam is the size and that's fine for now. Longer inseam seems the only matter worth a poll to me honestly. anyway just ignore me! hopefully I will feel better the next time I check this thread haha!

    agree on the whole line. It seems to me that we are leaving too many details to a poll without having a precise idea of how much warehouse is at disposal to satisfy our requests...a poll to discuss details that we don't know if will be possible sounds like a potential waste of time/headache... I'd personally narrow down to agree on WW2 details (I hardly believe we can get significant numbers on a non standard 5 pocket jean design, come on...). Green stamp on the patch I think is a 1946 spec, at least I remember the Devis 1946 had the green stamp on patches too.. a poll would be useful only to understand how many people would actually buy a pair with longer inseam... that would be a nice touch, especially if offered as an alternative (standard warehouse inseam is perfect for me).

    I personally don't care much about a personalized leather patch, especially if it will make the whole operation cost more. Honestly the bog standard DD 1003SXX 1943 would already make me more than happy. uneven pockets sounds like a nice touch to make this pair unique. Measurements look so good..

    TCB

    nonetheless you faded them to grail, fair play for the commitment. funny I'm a 36 and for me they're right in the waist, tight in the thigh and with a wide leg opening. they're not a perfect cut but I grown up to love it so much to buy three pairs of them.

    Tillman you are in great shape, are you working out like a crazy bastard to become as slim as Hayashi san?

    TCB

    what size are you? the smaller sizes are quite slim looking, in the bigger sizes the wider hem is much more noticeable. you haven't done your homework!

    Shoes that look better with age...

    yeah they seem very nice people and their selection of stuff is amazing. I haven't ever bought anything but think some of their instagram posts are hilarious. Ed where are you? You're missing a chance to share your opinions on John Lofgren, what a shame.

    TCB

    if there is one Tcb cut that doesn't need improvements is the 50s cut imho. However I had expectations on these, I thought they may achieve a gateway drug 50s cut with a bit of taper for the guys out there wary of a too loose leg. Well I was wrong

    RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    I love the white jeans look. I may cop a pair (not necessarly by Resolute) for the summer. Sleek Ivy style. Alessandro Squarzi wears them a lot and I think he pulls out some amazing looks.
