    no major updates from my last pics (2 days ago!) but I've just inherited a "new" old lot of swanky manual focus lenses (Prakticar Pentacon) and I've been playing around...
  4. 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 changed my mind re colour and modified my order from red to blue. I was fearing I couldn't get much use out of a red shirt...Funny thing I have 6 other blue chambray shirts..

    I also like more a bigger pinpoint collar on workshirts, but the label alone was enough to make me buy the shirt ; )

    I went with a 44 just because Inoue said he wears that size and we know we have similar measurements. with the ranchman the chest was taken 360 degree style. All my other tops are 42, and excluded the 50s jacket, all the others are a bit on the trim side. btw he also launched a new olive duck 50s jacket that looks fabolous... Let me ask Inoue.. [edit] here's the response

    I met that guy last year, nice chap. He worked for Levi's in SF during the 80s. He was working and researching in the field of denim washes (stone wash acid wash etc etc). Give him a slap because of this blasphemy!

    True my 50s pair started at 35,5 w after soak and wash and stretched to 36,5. I guess proportions are similar for smaller sizes.

    Apologies for the horrible peasant jeans worn from my colleagues. Hello everyone I'll be back with updates in a few weeks. right now I'm too swamped with work to even think about taking pictures...

    Those Genoa jeans were why I got in touch with Inoue for the first time in 2012 or 2013.. being from Genoa myself I wanted a pair badly. Genoa jeans were founded by a bunch of Japanese denim enthusiast that hung around a Japanese forum back in early 2010’s. They released two cuts, the xx in collaboration with Tcb and a WW2 cut made using 18 Oz zim cotton denim. They're not available anymore everywhere. I try regularly to look on yahoo auctions, with no luck.
