    ^second... I also still wear mine on occasion and don’t want to get rid of them

    at this point I wouldn't part with 'em... granted, I was way too heavy and had pretty much resolved that I'd be that way the rest of my life. I didn't feel heavy I just didn't feel healthy. I didn't intend to lose weight I just wanted to feel better. Losing 5"-6" in the waist literally makes everything fit wrong and although I may not have the "most wear" I've managed to keep wearing them. With the increased flexibility/mobility I've gained in the process I've gone from being unhappy with the fit to truly appreciating it... so no way, these TCB20s are MINE! :blink2:

    Which (post-contest) jeans is everyone moving on to next?

    I'm breaking in a pair of TFH 3005s but aside from that everything else has been sold. Oh and a pair of Blue Blanket IJJs that actually fit better with my "reduced profile".

  3. #019 breaking radio silence...

    promises, promises... getting "it" in gear so'z I can provide photographic evidence.

    Although, like @volvo240thebest I lost a significant amount of weight (70 lbs) taking me from a comfortable 40" waist to a 33" waist and making for a much baggier fit than expected. I literally have the cinch as tight as it can possibly go and still need suspenders to keep 'em up, so I don't wear them as much as expected but they have certainly transformed.

    I'll admit it's got me eyeballing the TCB 50s... a LOT!

  4. I noticed this benefit Takayuki Echigoya of Bowery Blue Makers started on GoFundMe to help save Kiyama Denim Mill in Okayama. The mill sustained flood waters of over four feet submerging the machines for days. As we all surely know these antique shuttle looms are assembled from both metal and wood including the shuttles. When running Kiyama's mill uses 1000 shuttles, 200 have been donated from other mills while the others will undergo the painstaking process of being hand repaired by a 78 year-old master craftsman. Needless to say, the situation is certainly worthy of the attention of the greater denim community.

    Having survived numerous hurricanes having lived in Florida most of my life I personally understand the loss and the pain of trying to rebuild. I thought I'd bring it to the attention of everyone here who is concerned.

    is the duck workpant still going to happen?

    that's the same question lingering on the DB boards...

    sounds like duck on DB and denim on SUFU...

    super interested in seeing what Ooe come with for each... they're going to be pretty outstanding to say the least!!

    Isn't summer the time for building up those leg muscles by kicking sand into the faces of the wimps on the beach? :P

    yup... but you gotta live near the beach and if you do (lie me) it's still a bit too warm to be wearin' jawns while kicking sand around

    I know this is for another forum, but I'd love to get in on a 10oz work pant. I would dust off my contest legs and sign up for a new forum to get down for sure.

    contest is over on the DenimBro forum... no new details yet, but sounds pretty intense! can't wait to see what Ooe come up with this time around

    In the meantime, here is a few photos (shot on 35mm film) wearing a TCB chambray and the contest jeans from a month or so back. I guess these will probably be the last photo update of the contest for me

    great pictures... we'll miss ya' brother!

    I've even asked if he could slap another special patch, but he has them anymore, and printing a new batch for a limited number of jeans is not possible.

    what about the possibility of an all black protest patch?

    sort of like the solidarity armbands the cricketeers from Zimbabwe wore... possibly not as fashionable but we'd still be unified in our dissent.

    just a thought :huh:  I sincerely feel like I'm losing a friend

    It's always interesting to me how international superfuture is, living in NYC I see selvedge denim often but rarely the true denim elite that we hold ourselves to here on sf.

    at least it's something, my wife laughs when I refer to South Florida as "the place that denim comes to die"... seriously it's pretty much like a post from "the ugliest jeans in the world" thread came to life down here, or it's all diesel-esque pre-made fades and wear in the wrong places

    Common things to people posting here are: "there is love there", "love for food", "love for cars", "love for nature", "love for buildings", "love for family" ... There is "TCB 20's" in such loving-filled life. Too wonderful! !

    you've totally nailed it!! (how appropriate for a carpenter) I've found myself marveling at how despite socio-political differences, millions of miles, and even language barriers we've got such an amazing community... I certainly feel like everyone on this journey together has become an "extended family" of sorts and I sincerely look forward to updates from this thread!

    ^Inimitable: I'm probably just slow if you mentioned earlier, but what's your profession? Do I detect a hint of winning due to wearing these doing actual movement?!

    I'm an LED project manager. I work for a large production equipment rental company and spend as much time climbing LED as I do sitting on my butt planning to climb LED!



    I haven't put on my climbing harness (fall protection) with the 20's yet, since the recent stuff has been smaller in scale..  I'm concerned about the suspender buttons will wind up below the pads for the waist belt and do some real damage if I had to rely on it.

    Another 40w checking in. Delighted to get in under the wire.

    I went with the 40 vs the 38 to take advantage of the cinch and to a lesser extent I'd potentially be climbing in them for work... I calculated a comfortable thigh measurement and estimated up based on the flexibility I'd need to climb comfortably.

    If you look back at my raw, initial soak and second soak measurements I got a load of initial shrink but they're hella stretchy... I should measure 'em after a week or so of wear just to give the "bigger dudes" an idea of what to expect. oh and if you haven't acquired a set of braces/suspenders you might want to set your sights on a pair, a lot of us are beginning to swear by 'em :ph34r:

    All in all a good option under a shirt or vest (not feeling hipster enough to wear them "openly", normally I don't give much of a damn about what other people think but somehow suspenders is pushing it. Even if it's in style and not with rubbish clip-on ones.)

    I know the feeling! although I'm pretty used to 'em at this point and have managed a wear or two on the outside...

    mine certainly look a bit wider and the duck surely makes 'em heavier, getting used to that "extra bulk" has been the strangest part. we'll see how it goes when I've gotta climb in 'em...
