Congrats everyone, so many great pairs in this contest. @Yot @chicote @Hopethisoneisnttaken well done guys!
Apologies for not being an active part of the contest in the last six months. I've even managed to not post final submissions.
As a positive note, I've lost a bit of weight and I fit again my pair now ; ) And after some yard work in the weekend I gave them their first right-side-out wash and they're starting to look decently worn in.
Their first version was slimmer and longer, mine was from the first batch. The newer model is more of a repro, boxier and shorter.1
Here we go beautiful people!
final submission rules:
Picture rules: Maximum 8 pictures
Picture submittance deadline: 14th March
Please send the pictures to [email protected]
Title: TCB WW2 fade contest/ your contestant number and your nickname
How to judge: Each TCB member decides their 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.
1st place-3 points
2nd place-2 points
3rd place-1 points
The person who gets the most point wins.
As you all know, the contest had lived a life of its own on multiple platforms, due to language barrier many JP didn't manage to create an account on sufu.
Ryo would like to have all photos also to make a tcb contest gallery on Tcb website.
I guess it doesn't hurt if we want to make a final submission thread here on sufu for the sake of posterity, but as I wrote above the evaluation and official submission will have to be made by email.
I have actually been in touch with Hajime and Ryo about this, and suggested some basic final submission rules.
I am awaiting their reply on my proposal, which I hope to receive tomorrow.
I'll keep you posted.18
hello beautiful people!
I'm sorry for being very badly MIA during the last six months. Life hasn't been very kind to myself to put it mildly.
My main job has become so stressful to put a dent or (or three) on my mental stability, and this made me, off all things, gain weight again, and loose interest in clothes. I think I may be ready for a no buy 2022 (unless I keep gaining weight!). I can still fit the jeans but truth be told now they're not much comfortable anymore so I don't wear them everyday. I'll try and find time to dremel the jeans and take a few pics of the jeans in the next weeks ; )
Very glad to see so many beautiful fades out there. Special mention to @Jared_Lee whose pair looks and fits fantastic.27
Amazing piece really, I'll try and snap some shots for the tcb thread. Admittedly not for everyone but it's somewhat of a virtuoso tailor piece, so to say...0
My pair of tcb boss of the cat should here next week, I couldn't resist either ; )

Good news the fourth Covid test is finally negative. I should be back to normal life in ten days ; )
Gorgeous fades @diggers
Nice work everyone!! sorry I've been MIA for a while now. I still lurk often but haven't been in a mood for posting in a while.
Since april 16th we're stuck at home in quarantine. My wife has been positive to Covid19, luckily no major consequences, but after nearly a month she's still positive and we're all confined at home.
Today she made her 4th covid test and I really hope this is going to be the one that puts the word end on our quarantine...
please send good vibes : )19
lovely updates gents.
@Paul T great to see you're in fine shape and the jeans are still unfaded ; )
@bartlebyyphonics very educational comparison post! love it!
I've used my pair for some yard work and promptly washed them right side out at 60° C just because the washing machine is the only thing that can fade my jeans at this stage!18

Or you have to buy a pair to verify this observation
I think we all gladly leave the scientific approach to you my friend ; ) Go on and get some, for the sake of science!2
@Duke Mantee best wishes for your daughter!1

^ ebay is your best bet. Usually they are bought by cobblers and shoemakers in bulk and are not readily available for peasants like us
or maybe directly through them?
Basically a pain in the arse to get them, if you are not in the shoe-biz...
indeed, I just wanted to avoid shipping from the US for a pair of sole made by an Italian brand haha. Those are the two only direct links I've found. I know some cobblers have them but not the small Italian cobbler that I wanted to use. Wijsman in the Nederlands has the 2021 but he quoted me 110 eur plus shipping both ways for the resole, it does make sense for a stitched resole, it seems a lot to just glue a gum sole.0
