  3. Hello beautiful people of Sufu finally we are ready to launch the TCB X SUFU S40S contest (WW2 model). Order page S40’s Jeans S40’s Jacket Price Contest Jeans JPY 23,650 Size: 28/29/30/31/32/33/34/36/38/40 WW2 Jacket JPY 25,300 Size 34/36/38/40/42/44/46/48/50 The fade contest will be only for the jeans but we make the jacket with the contest patch as a memorial to the fade contest we’ll hold with much help of Super Future. Target Model: S40’s Jeans Contest Ver. Estimated Delivery: Mid ~ End of August wherever you are Duration: Sep/2020〜Feb/2022 Rules There’s no specific rules for the contest. Just wear the contest jeans however you like. You can repair however many times, you can paint on it, or anything is fine. We’ll see whose pair will look the most gorgeous at the end of Feb/2022. Simple as that! Please let me note that the participation to the contest is not mandatory at all. If you’d like to sign in for the contest, please let us know in the note section when placing an order on our Website. I suppose there will be much more contestants from Japan this time. In order to keep everyone updated with how other contestants’ fading process is going, Ryo from TCB will be uploading the photos of each contestant on behalf of all the JP contestants. The contest is an opportunity to share your passion with other likely minded folks from every corner of the world, so we invite as many possible of you as possible to join the Superfuture forum and be actively involved in the TCB S40’s official thread. Prizes 1st Place 1 Jacket and 1 jeans 2nd Place 1 Jacket OR 1 Jeans 3rd Place 1 Shirt 4th Place 1 Shorts OR 1 Bag 5th Place 1 Hat or Cap Terms of judgement Each member of the TCB Crew will decide 1st, 2nd, and 3rd favorite pair and 1st counts as 3 pts, 2nd as 2 its and 3rd as 1 pt. The person that ends up with the most points wins! Fabric After careful examination and analysis on the WW2 fabric, we’ve reached the answer, 14 oz fabric made of EMOT blended cotton(Eastern Memphis, New Orleans, and Texas). Hard twisted yarns with so much of neppiness gives a solid texture to the fabric, which Hajime Inoue felt as the first impression when he first touched the original WW2 fabric. This hard twisted yarn is one of the key points to keep the indigo color not fully penetrated to the core of the yarns, which makes this fabric really true to how the vintage looks and eventually fades. The unevenness on the threads is carefully reproduced by the setting on the vintage Toyoda shuttle looms and the recipe of the cotton blend. Nowadays the definition of good cotton is often regarded as the whiteness made possible by breed improvement but this time we have focused on the creamy tinge on the fabric which is an iconic detail of the WW2 fabric. How jeans are measured please refer to Tcb guide Jeans S40ʼs Jeans Fabric:14oz EMOT Blended Cotton Details:Steel made Laurel wreath button/steel-made rivets/ Deer Skin patch Threads:Cotton threads (5 different thread counts) (Proudly Designed and Made In Kojima, JAPAN) Jacket S40ʼs Jacket Fabric:14oz EMOT Blended Cotton Details:Steel made Laurel wreath button/steel-made rivets/ Deer Skin patch Threads:Cotton threads (Proudly Designed and Made In Kojima, JAPAN) Special features Limited edition patch Ladies and gents here's the final draft sent to the printers. All the credits go to @Nayuta - well done! Lottery pocket bags In true S501XX spirit, pocket bags will be made with ten different fabric scraps, left and right pocket bags will be mismatched and no pair will be the same! No one can choose his/her pocket bag fabrics, that's why it's called lottery bags. Here's the fabric samples: blue wabash from Ranchman shirt Dark indigo wabash from Tabby's vest Hickory stripe from Handyman overalls Mottled brown denim from Tabby's jacket Mottled denim from Tabby's coat Olive and brown canvas from Black Cat chore coat Olive back satin from tropical pants Olive herringbone Random hickory stripe from Wrecking Crew overalls [willl further edit and fix later - sufu won't let me upload pics right now]

    Contest pair no. 1 checking in from Rome Italy. As mad as it may sound I have just travelled all the way from the peasant lands of Liguria to play the posh-est gig for the national broadcasting company, from the Quirinale (house of Italy's presidente della Repubblica). It feels great to be back on the saddle for a little while...

    On a more light hearted note, even my desk warrior jeans start to look good

    gorgeous cats... on a cat related note, I am broken hearted to say that my old buddy has just been diagnosed with bladder cancer. I have another vet appointment in a couple days but it looks like we'll likely have to bid farewell to a true friend and family member sooner than later

    looks great. I haven't bought one as I definitely like more the type 3. Really hope Hajime will come up with a boa/sherpa lined type 3 next year

    There are loads of fit pics in the TCB 40s contest thread. Fit wise, pretty similar to the 50s BUT - rise is higher - hem width is a touch smaller

    Ciao 2020! It's excellent! The original programs they refer to are Drive in, and bits and bobs of Festival di San Remo atmosfere.

    I have always close to zero combs results. I love the whiskers and the button fly fades.

    TCB

    it's very likely that American Classics has some raw jackets while Tcb doesn't. I know that tcb doesn't sell anymore the raw 50s but still makes them for American Classics.

    true that. both 50s pairs I have started a smidgen under 36 (around 35,5) and stretched to 36. they could be stretched a bit more up to 36,5, but no more than that.
  16. volvo240thebest

    TCB

    tcb stretches to size. Eg 50s size 36 will stretch to be 36 once worn. I can send you the photo proof of it ; )

    Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

    great fit @jigsaw I wish I went with a shorter hem myself. the cuff makes the hem look too narrow to some of my shoes. Too lazy at the mo to send the jeans to be hemmed.

    slick fit!

    the s40s starts smaller than the 50s but with wear the waist stretches to the same waist of the 50s in the same size. at least that's what happened with my pair. top 50s, bottom s40s, pic is bad but you get the idea.

    Shoes that look better with age...

    nice and simple, I like it. Ther Dr Sole heels are massive and too thick for a stacked heel I find. they woprk great on their own.

    Shoes that look better with age...

    could you post a profile pic? It looks like the heel is not stacked and not woodman's style too, correct? I've considered doing something similar on one of my pairs too. I can't stand anymore the woodman heel. I am not sure if there is a relation of sorts but since I've started to run consistently (about 4 times per week) about 2 yrs ago the higher heeled boots started to cause me knee pain. They're fine for a short walk/running errands, dreadful on a long day walking or even just standing.

    FOB Factory

    great contribution @beautiful_FrEaK ! fit looks perfect too. considering your rotation and the stubborness of FOB, if you not gain weight, I guess these will be faded in 2045

    Onderhoud ltt Oxfords. Olive rough out, waxed by me. These have seen loads of wear. No. 1 choice when walking lengths and not using running sneakers.

    I remember the first pair fit changed a lot in the first month's, the fabric was a bit stiff and after a couple washes the denim draped better.
