    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

    I am wearing a pair of Re Lookus and want to wear a pair of Warehouse 1004xx but they're just as loose as the Tcb 20a if not more.

    how German of you! Agree on length. my pair is too short too, I think a big double cuff looks much better on these.

    Tcb 20s Contest final photos submission thread

    Final submission by yours truly! I am sorry I haven't been able to wear these jeans as much as I want, mostly because of a massive weight loss that made the fit look different from what I was after.. Anyhoo, I love them and will keep wearing them too, of course. Front view Peasant sashiko repairs plus the amazing texture of denim, love the vertical falling on this. Legendary Tcb roping, de rigeur More 5 yrs old repairs Choof Choof Love the plain selvedge
