  1. 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]

    They're some seriously good jeans and the fact that the 36 is actually a 35 works well for me now. You should definitely get another pair sometimes

    Ryo said they're respecting the schedule so I guess they'll ship around aug 15th.

    @kenko you're most welcome aboard! in the list with no. 198 so it turns out the numbers of JP contestants are up to 72 now. Ryo has the full list but doesn't have a sufu/IG handle for most of them and we can't just publish names. He's working on that tho.

    Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

    @kenko welcome aboard! just heard Ryo and yes you can join in. please let me know where are you from and send a private message including your tcb order no. and your IG account if you're going to use it for updates as well. Welcome gif as soon as Ryo gives me your entry number, your contest no will be at the end of the Japan group.

    Ryo also posted a couple interesting videos in his stories, about the back yoke stagger construction. they're not easy to share outside instagram but perhaps some tech savy can do it for the benefit of the scientific community...

    Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

    ciao Karl! I have the fully extensive list of each contestant and his relative sufu/instagram account! I can publish it here is no one has anything against that for privacy issues. I am also waiting Ryo to publish the list of Japan participants. I hope he will publish soon!

    Make sure your chest circumference bis no more than mine otherwise it won't work. For me it's borderline..

    Here's how the 30s jacket size 42 works
  18. volvo240thebest

    TCB

    Correct. I can fit nicely a sweatshirt under the 50's and 60s jackets. If I wear a sweatshirt under the 30s jacket usually I only close one or two buttons otherwise it feels too tight. I am still happy with the 30s sizing though. I think a 44 would have been too long in sleeves and torso. My favourite Tcb jean jacket is the 60s. They're all very well made, but the 60s fit on me is the best of the lot and the weight/heft of the denim makes it feel always great all year round. The 30s jacket is very light, works better on hotter months. I look forward to the 40s jacket now. Ryo's advice was to get a 44 but I went with a 42 anyway, basically for the same reason I got a 42 on the 30s...
  19. volvo240thebest

    TCB

    not sure which jacket s you meant. you're about my same height/weight, but fit depends also on your chest circumference. Mine is about 102/104 depending how fully inflated I am! I have no experience with the catboy but generally I hear it's tighter than the others. I would get the 44. Same with the 30s jacket. I wear the 42 on the 30s but it works better witth only a tee or shirt underneath. 50s and 60s jacket I wear a 42 and fits great. Seaman on the other side is loose. I have a 42 but could easily wear a 40.

    Love how always the coin pocket fade protrudes on the front pocket too on 50s

    Tailors tape is your friend in these cases... Just measured your 360 circumference at the point where the jeans would sit (60s sit quite on the hips). Allow a little bit for stretch.
  25. volvo240thebest

    TCB

    I wear the same indeed. My advice for 60s is size according to thigh. The thigh on bigger sizes is slim.
