    Vintage Denim?

    An unissued WWII Diddy Bag I picked up a bit ago. The drawstring was sewn down by accident, so it wouldn’t close very well. That’s probably why it’s in such good condition.

    I think TCB did a nice job recreating the wonky pocket stitching on their 20s jacket. I really like the look

    Before and after measurements compared to TCB.

    My 20s jacket showed up a couple days ago. My worry was that sizing up to 46 from my usual 40 was going to be a mistake. Turns out that it fits pretty much how I wanted! A little bit loose and very comfortable. I gave it a hot wash and a few minutes in the tumble dryer and then air dried it. The length shortened just a tad and everything else stayed pretty much the same.

    My 40s are getting some decent wear... long after the contest is over.

    @bartlebyyphonics What you've said above does make me feel better about going with the 46! The shoulders will certainly be dropped and the arms might be a touch long. Comparing the TCB 20 chart to other similar jackets has the arms, pretty consistently, a couple of CM longer. Keeping that consistent length for those middle sizes seems to push the higher end of the sizes into a more boxy fit. Ryo's jacket looks good proportionately. Where as the slimmer guys, wearing smaller sizes, have that usually long tube look that most TCB jackets have. hmmm @MJF9 Are those your 20's jeans? Did you notice significant shrink after more washes?

    After looking at the size chart and talking to Ryo, I made a preorder for the 20s Jacket in a size 46(56cm across the chest). comparing the measurements of my size 40 Dubbleworks type 2, which is about 54.5 cm across the chest. I wanted it to be a little roomier than my Dubbleworks jacket, but sizing up from 40 to 46 definitely feels crazy. He assured me the post wash fabric tends to shrink more than TCBs other fabrics. @bartlebyyphonics I also asked Ryo if the length would shrink a couple CM and he said it'll surely happen. I guess I'll know in August!

    Not sure if this is the right place for this. A buddy has a bunch of scrap fabrics from an estate sale. Some of it is selvedge. I’m assuming the red line is Levi’s, but can anyone ID the green and yellow one?

    Vintage clothing and footwear

    I believe this is called an M-1947 (maybe someone here knows more). Used from the early '50s to early '60s. I think it's the precursor to the sateen fatigue shirts that we see in later Vietnam, reproduced by the likes of Orslow. They were made in HBT as well (Korean War?). I rather like this Jacket/shirts.

    Thought I would upload some quick pictures of my Overcomers (remocrevo). On and off wear for a few years.
