    Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

    I tried to wear mine at work this week but the 4" double cuff didn't work well from a stealth POV bit the bullet yesterday and took 3" off the inseam and sewed them up on my home machine, then threw them in a 40 wash. im finding the opposite problem to most. They're about 1" too big in the waist, big hip flares and are bigger than my 20's. Hopefull that the warm machine wash will bring them in a little.

    Quite a lot like four inches? Or quite a lot like two inches? I'm hoping the former, with associated leg twist.

    Here's a comparison between my 2019 LVC 44s (36x32) and my tcb 38 coincidence that I got one pocket like my LVC pocket Also some T back goodness on the 44 OW jacket fit comparison 44 TCB OW vs LVC Valencia st 44 type 2. (From 96 iirc) old ipad, hence the exceptional photo quality....

    fit pic pre-soak. Tops off! if you love the toon! there's a comfortable 1-2" on the waistband I can lose shouts again for the denim. It's got a great texture

    So what's the numbers on inseam shrinkage after soaking? I'm loathe tho hot soak mine prior to having a better understanding of the shrink. I was hoping for a 4" shrink. If they're only coming up 2" I'm tempted to get them hemmed prior to soaking to get the roping I enjoy so much on my 20s.

    My tux arrived yesterday. Weirdly in the opposite camp. My 20s contest jeans are perfect. I sized down in the ww2's as I've lost a bit of weight and my same tagged 60s are far too big. I was very nervous as I thought I may have gone a size too small, but mine are large, verging on clown pants. I also didn't hem as my 20s continued to shrink after several washes. i can happily lose at least 2" in the waist and at least 5" in the hem (which is how my 20s shrank, tbh) dont get your hopes up though lads, as they're 38w my jacket is a perfect fit imho after OW but snugger than I expected for a 44 the denim is tremendous i got the much discussed tiger stripe and ticking fabric pockets and am pretty happy. my only regret will be if they really only shrink 2" on the inseam....I should have had a hem done by tcb. photos to follow.

    Currently in Wales but Jean's and jacket arrive at my home tomorrow. Having not seen my family for two weeks (and my mrs since the day of her (quite significant) birthday) I have to hold back my Jean's excitement- not easy

    If it's anything like the tcb20s contest patch it will sadly become unreadable then disintegrate after a few washes. My contest patch is a distant memory. And it never saw a dryer.
