  1. Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

    Continuing my trait for tardiness, but I have also posted mine back (through Royal Mail) last Monday. The nice lady said they would take up to two weeks. Really looking forward to receiving a new pair and getting started again. lets hope that all will be well

    I had the same issue. Pulled out my rising sun blacksmiths at the weekend and thought "blimey these are slimmer than I remember..."

    Nice guitars Erk!! I recently sold my jazzmaster as I couldn't get on with it, but they're a beautiful looking guitar

    Thank you for your measurements! I had a feeling I'd see a bit of a rise. I've got a lot of scope as I'm double cuffed at this stage. It appears that they're as shrinky as my Big Bro which went up a good ten cm

    I'm really interested in the extent of shrinking over the course of your washes. The last contest I was in (d33 on denimbro) we all experienced shrinkage over many washes, with the length of my D33 losing about 4" ive still got a lot of scope for losing leg length, just interested if they're still shrinking after many washes

    Works night out. contest jeans are definitely appropriate attire, right (I'd like to add my works night out is not in my kitchen, just waiting to get picked up!) brooks brothers TCB Redwing Soxisix

    Warm soaked my Johnny come not so latelys Friday evening. Only saw 1-2cm shrinkage in the measured areas (less than i expected) but left a very noticeable blue ring round the bath. (That got me a telling off). nice and crispy after an air dry. Been wearing them since and am very happy. They were very rough on my delicate ballerina legs (the 40w must have given that away, eh) but that's not a problem. i think I haven't got all the shrink out of them yet so I'm planning to wear them for a while then do a hot wash and machine dry.

    In terms of "gentle dishonesty" a friend of mine came home to a parcel he'd hope to hide from his wife and had to say "I can't tell you what it is as it's your Christmas present" - he then had to find something for his wife from Japan that would deliver in time. he naturally had it delivered to his work address.

    That's a quandary! Nb shouts to your avatar - Jackie Mittoo isn't it? That's a great player.
  13. Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

    I'd add - that's great service from Mr TCB
  14. Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

    They've arrived (*loud cheer*) there are only a few better text messages than "there's a parcel here for you from Japan" very impressed so far, will do the traditional fit evaluation in due course. Those early contestants (I'd presume) would be pleased to know that Johnny come lately doesn't get the indigo pocket bags, so the twenty are still "the twenty" doesnt detract for me, really pleased to jump on when I did.

    Thanks for the welcome folks and thanks for the tips. I'm interested to see how these fit compared to my various LVC and rising sun "pre war" styles. just wish they'd arrive!!!
