    Welcome, darkstar73! Is that a new patch TCB's using? Did I miss something?

    "Kit," those look amazing! Definitely making me want to look into a pair for myself, love the Badlands reference as well! Anyone care to give me a quick rundown on Warehouse? Or tell me about the pair Kit's wearing?

    I own a pair of '54 and wear them the least because of that strong taper as well.

    '47 is probably my favorite of the ones I've tried, but I know it's a bit of a controversial(?) repro. What's the issue with the pockets and who makes the best/closest '47 repro?

    Believe it or not, I was able to fit into these after trying for several months. They're a bit snug around the waist but loosened up just from trying them on, expecting them to stretch more based on what I've read here. I was ready to pull the trigger on a size up but I'm glad I'll be able to give these some wear instead, was really starting to get jealous of everyone with their great looking pair of 50s on here.

    Agreed with kicks79, '47 runs on the smaller side.

    No problem, that was part of the problem for me too. The inseam was an inch shorter than what I had asked for, I think I'm gonna have a hard time selling this pair.

    Sure, Waist: 28in (measured across and doubled) Inseam: 25.5 in Back Rise: 14 in Hem: 8.5 in Let me know if you'd like any more measurements.

    If it keeps TCB alive, more power to them! Anyone interested in a pair of size 29 50s for themselves or their girlfriend? Ordered directly from and hemmed by TCB however they are much smaller than I could ever hope to fit into, washed once only by TCB and worn only to try on. I can provide measurements and pictures if interested! I'd like to try again on these but would like to be able to get rid of them before I buy a bigger pair.

    Yes, 1954. My mistake!

    My next purchase was going to be a 1955 but I never got around to it, I love a 1947. From what I've read on here it's a slimmed down version of the original but I love it and think it looks very classic. The denim on the 1955 is interesting, it's also a zip fly and it tapers.

    Okayama Denim now carries TCB according to an email I just received from them.

    I will still give them a warm soak, like fresh1 said, if they shrink before hemming, you'll be glad you did, nothing to lose otherwise.

    Agreed with bF, they're crazy if they think people who REALLY pay attention to this stuff will pay full price for products that aren't even made in the US using Cone Mills anymore. That was a big part of the appeal of LVC, at least for me. Glad my pairs of 1947 and 1954 were prior to this change, just wish I would've been able to get my hands on more.
