  1. Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

    ^be careful foxy or @bartlebyyphonics will have no choice but to declare you a confessing animal participating in your own surveillance.

    ^That's a bummer, erk. But this is no sprint, after all. If it were, then we'd all get "dusted" by @Uncle Karl, who is well on his way to achieving a pair that looks more like something unearthed from a long-abandoned silver mine than anything that could actually be worn at the end of the contest. In the meantime, enjoy your furniture while it's still unscathed!

    Good stuff, everybody. Certainly nothing resembling snow here in Charleston, but it did drop to near freezing temps the last few nights. After years in Denver, I'm now busy recalibrating recipes for low altitude and high humidity (e.g., ye olde brown sugar spice cookies): A few pics of the crazy wrinkles produced by my initial hot soak. I squished them into a pail since my go-to soaking tub seems to have been lost in the move. I figured they would have smoothed out by now, butthey've decided to stay and add some funky character instead: Trying out some Brooks Brothers braces I picked up cheap on ebay. Perfect for online banking.

    ^I'm with you on that @nycsurfer530. For a split second, I thought I should give them another hot soak and just hang dry in order to get them to crisp up and start trying for better creases. Then I realized that was silly, that I'd be reverting to that old "how do I get my jeans to look like that?" mentality, which I'd like to believe I outgrew years ago. Hence, I'm just going to let my pair do whatever they're going to do.

    Wow. I tell you what, my pair came out of the dryer so soft and fluffy after the wash and dry nearly a month ago, that I haven't developed hardly any serious, crisp creases despite only wearing other pairs 4 or 5 days since.

    ^ Interesting. The standard back pockets are entirely unadorned. That back pocket stitching design (with the cat ears) sounds a lot like a design Inoue was toying around with when the arcs for the 20s contest jeans were being discussed. I'm guessing that somehow you both got pairs from a limited run produced while he was trying out the design, which would make them pretty special. We'll all be watching to see how they turn out.

    Is it just me or does it look like there's stitching that suggests that this is a half-lined back pocket?

    Not much happening this weekend but for a leisurely stroll around the block. I was tempted to give the 20s a wash, but like a few of you all, I'm really trying to ride it out and not wash again for a fair bit longer.
  9. Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

    Yeah, I'm actually eyeballing some brooks brothers ones. There's a BB store in town here, so I can check them out in person and then hunt down a pair I like on ebay (sticker price is much too high).

    Those look promising. I'm still unsure if I'm going to sport suspenders often enough to justify upgrading my czechs, but I'm eager to see how these work our for you.
  11. Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

    I'm curious to see how this coin pocket develops over time. I recently noticed that I'm not seeing the same kind of lightning bolt that the 60s tend to develop. It seems that in order to include the hidden selvedge ID the coin pocket fabric is running the same direction as everything else (unlike the 60s, which seems to rotate the swatch of fabric 90 degrees, hence the bolt). Is that right? Or is this bolt more a consequence of the roping that develops along the stitch at the top of the pocket and not the direction of fabric?

    TCB 20s, meet TCB chambray ranchman.
  13. Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

    Well, gnomes, perhaps we know what time it is then:
  14. Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

    Spent the weekend in my SC Okis and TCB 60s only to realize what I already knew: these 20s could've really used another button on the fly.
  15. Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

    You got it. They work and they look decent enough for now. If the look grows on me, then I'll upgrade them at some point. We'll see...
