    Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

    I regret to inform you guys that I seem to have lost my contest pair. I guess that's what I get for wearing shorts all summer.

    Yeah, you're not wrong. I guess maybe it's more accurate to say I'm going to fade what I've got? I have other pairs that fit way better. And on further reflection, all I ever wanted was a good pair of jeans.

    I am somewhat sad to say that not only have I not worn my TCBs in months, but they are probably the last pair of raws I will ever buy. The poor fit made me reflect on what exactly I was trying to accomplish besides spending money and I couldn't come up with anything... I expect this wasn't what TCB was hoping to accomplish but I'm just not cut out to be a heritage bro or whatever. It's too much work! And you guys all do it better anyway. I'll still check on the contest progress every now and then as I still respect the process and appreciate the passion.

    Have not watched this yet, but I remember reading somewhere that she used to only wear 501s. Not sure about now though.

    Enjoying my vices. You can hardly tell but I am wearing the TCBs. Playing the long game with these for sure.

    The town I live in made like an official thing, to light up the town to show support for... whatever. So it was pretty unprecedented this year. However, a lot of it was slovenly... like using the light string as an extension cord so you have lights on the ground, and then up into the tree, etc. And I saw a ton of my least favorite decoration, the large plastic Homer Simpson (don't get me wrong, I am a fan of the Simpsons, just not as Xmas decorations).

    Not really an update but I deleted my Instagram. I got tired of having facebook track my movements. Anyway I think it's listed earlier in the thread. I'll post any denim updates here only from now on.

    Somewhat crappy iphone pic from this morning. It was raining.

    @Chris T I would say my go tos are still plain old 501s. And not necessarily STF either. After a bit of wear they just become perfect for me. I'm not entirely feeling the TCB cut either. Not that the jeans are bad or anything like that, but I don't quite get how they can feel tight in the waist and simultaneously have a 1/2 inch to spare and fall down without a belt. I'm still battling through in hopes they will eventually get more comfortable but at this point my hopes are dimming that they will ever be my favorite pair.
  10. @JDelage That's a good tip! I never really considered the effect of when the auction ends. But thinking about it now I'm sure that makes a difference.
  11. Thanks guys! I have some stuff that might be OK for Grailed but I doubt a pair of Wranglers that cost $20 new would go over well on there. I'm mainly focused on Ebay because I have a pretty well-established account. But at the same time the last time I tried to sell clothes I got $8 for a pair of Naked & Famous that were only worn a few times. So I'm not sure that kind of thing would be worth it either. I'll probably donate the cheap stuff and figure out something else with the others.
  12. Any of you guys have much luck selling clothes on Ebay? I have quite a few pairs of cheap jeans that are too big for me now that I'm looking to get rid of, and I'm trying to decide between donating and selling.

    @chicote I always assumed those people were manually fading them somehow, like with sandpaper or something. I've never had a pair that faded on the thighs more than anywhere else. Knees and ass, yes. But not thighs. @mlwdp I'm 5'9" and I do want to hem everything also, however the hemming has been a bit of a challenge. I had a couple of pairs that ended up too short after washing, and then a couple of pairs that ended up too long when I tried to adjust. So now I am waiting until they are well and truly broken in to decide if I'm going to/need to hem.

    Still no signs of any fading. Last picture is something I came across while looking for a muffler shop on Google Maps, figured volvo would like it.
