    Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

    Thought I’d give a bit of an in depth update. Some threads are starting to unravel and I can see where my pair might end up in a few months time now. Both pocket bags where the thing that broke first (This is very normal for me) and where mended months ago. Left side by hand and right hand side first with machine and later by hand. Both are in need of some more work before the new holes get larger. After that the threads at the crotch where unraveling. Caught it in time and matched up the thread colour pretty well I think. Had to mend the back pocket where my wallet where making a hole. Below the pocket you can also see a fault in the weave (loom shatter?). Both knees are wearing thin and might break any day now and here’s to the million dollar question, to mend or not to mend?! Usually I’ll always mend these things but this being a comp I’m unsure. It’s harder to see the natural evolution with a big patch over the evo right?

    Started to get a bit cooler here in Sweden so started wearing jeans again. Haven’t been completely faithful to the 40’s though. Missed about 2-3 months maybe. Feels like they get better every wash. Can’t really say how many washes they’ve been through but maybe 7-8. Line dry except 1 trip in the dryer. Patch is still quite smooth and supple. Might have given it some mink oil early on.

    Not much action the last couple of months due to actual summer temps here in Sweden. Thought I’d give you guys an update anyhow.

    Just got this shirt in the mail. Thought I bought an lvc shirt but it looks kinda sus. Made in Indonesia and a red tab with a small e. Main line or fake? What do you guys think? Fabric is nice enough and construction is solid though.

    Some great lookin jeans on this page, especially yours @Yot! I’ve started wearing mine now after a successful men’s of the crotch. They’re really starting to pop.

    Thanks @el padre and @unders. I actually thought about starting a repair service many years ago but never got to it properly. Not that you need it Padre, that sashiko looks nice!

    Hope everyone are staying safe! Sorry bout the lack of updates from my part. Was getting some loose threads at the crotch so I held up wearing them until I found my sawing kit (I’ve recently moved and a lot is still in boxes so it took a while). Finished: Just got back a positive COVID test today, feeling ok though I guess. On a lighter note first really warm day here in Lidköping, Sweden and the trees are staring to bloom.

    @specialchild just wear them man, it’ll be fine. Either the crease will disappear or it’ll be a fine outline down the road. Just embrace it. Wabi-sabi.

    @Double 0 Soul They’re not mine. Just found them on a consignment site here in Sweden. Highly doubt that they’re anything but shoddy made fakes but thought they where fun. Here are some more pics:
