  2. Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

    hello everyone! time to open this thread. We're programming a new TCB contest, this time it will be focused on the TCB 20s cut only. The sponsor of the contest will be our own @edmond and Regiment Store in Manila. Start date: sept 1st 2017 End date: march 1st 2019 Preorder deadline: july 15th 2017 Cost: USD 245, shipping included, hemming included if needed (done by TCB) Customization: it's possible to order the jeans without suspender buttons (they don't make much of a difference as far as comfort when wearing a belt, though) Payment: it's possible that payment will be via credit card only, no paypal. More details about it later... Prizes: thanks to the Asian Charles Bronson & Regiment store we'll have perhaps the most generous prize line up I've ever seen in a contest. 1st Prize = 1 jacket 1 pants 2nd prize = 1 jacket 3rd price = 1 pants 4th prize = newspaper bag 5th prize = hat or cap All TCB products! TCB 20s Replica of a 1922 pair of Levi's 501 from Hajime Inoue's personal collection. typical details of a 1920's pair of jeans, straight cut, cinchback, exposed back pocket rivets, crotch rivet, suspender buttons, iron buttons that will rust over time. Fabric: 8x8 Memphis cotton denim, 12.5 oz weight. Superb fabric, I must say! Special details, only for the contest pair custom patch, designed in Italy special pocket bag fabric, selvedge indigo duck fabric weaved on old looms. Inoue's own words: "indigo canvas can also enjoy discoloration" custom arcs, designed by Inoue, I have no pictures yet of the arcs design, but it'll be something that could be partially unpicked to reveal "proper" arcs waistband chainstitch runoff

    ^ me too! in particular there's one pair I've seen on IG and not here that's looks very promising, and then I look forward to see Paul's at some point. It seems either this pair is tougher than what I though, or the fact that since january I work mostly from home killed my fade skills. little real life update, while waiting for the fadezzz.... This week I've been a couple days in Zurich, Switzerland. I was invited to see the final round of the Concours Géza Anda, one of 5 top piano competitions in the world. The Festival I work for is one of the international partners and we always invite one of the prizewinners. The final round usually takes place in the Tonhalle, which at the moment is closed for renovation. The replacement hall, though, is cool as fuck. A repurposed industrial building that has been prepped as concert hall and that has some really incredible acoustics. yet another opportunity to be reminded that I live in "peasantland". I have no pics of the winner, anyhoo she's called Claire Huangci, she's an American of Chinese origins and she's absolutely amazing. I was pleased to find myself agreeing with the jury. my outfit for the finale and following cocktail, I know you all want to see it cheap Swiss peasant lager, 6 SFR a bottle. fast forward to today, cheap peasant lager in the land of true peasants, € 0,76 a bottle just finished this, didn't know Joe Lansdale, now I want to read everyrthing he wrote. truly captivating stuff let's keep it at least a bit jeans related, me on the way to super market Me on the way back from supermarket, backpack full of 0,76 peasant imbibements, I managed 10 66cl bottles for 7,60, just a bit over that single Swiss beer. bye bye the peasant

    ^ I think he used the forum's uploader rather than Pinterest. @FreeCharlesManson jeans look great though, lovely marbling. Full dad fadez potential!
  7. Shoes that look better with age...

    I've ordered these Winson boots after a suggestion of a fellow boot lover from Indonesia. He told me he reckons Winson, Sagara and Jalan Sriwijaya to be the only Indonesian brands that churn out stuff at the same quality level of good western bootmakers. They're surely extremely well made and the design and last are well considered and thought. They surely are a lot of value for the money.

    About 200 USD plus shipping, the Dr Sole soles doesn't come stock so I had to buy them separately. All in all 280 USD EMS shipping and soles included.
  9. Shoes that look better with age...

    Just took delivery of a new mto pair of boots. made by a brand called Winson, from Indonesia. Much better quality compared to the other Indonesian brand, I've tried. Santalum. There is no comparison in fairness. They're all stitched by hand, and peep the stitching itself. The owner, Emil, is a pleasure to deal with, and clearly very enthusiast about his work. Lace to toe design, the maker modified his last to accomodate my needs (higher and wider toebox). leather: rough out sole: brown midsole + Dr Sole outsole and heel peep how clean the stitching is boots were sent with two different kilties, longer (as on here) and shorter (last pics). And here how the rough out looks after two coats of sno seal, two coats of mid brown polish, leather laces and shorter kilties/no kilties. A darker polish would have been nice, too. nicely done, subtle woodmans heel Very well made boots, I dare to say they hold their own against well known makers. They're ready to be hybernated til the next winter now haha!

    He was suggesting a M, which seems the way to go...

    Give it a machine wash, and a tumble dry in case you want to use the dryer in the future. You have room to let the jacket shrink a bit more.
