    WAYWT 2020 (Denim Edition)

    Sunshine was pretty dazzling in Sheffield today eh?

    I'm in!

    Thanks @julian-wolf Think I'd need to eke out another half-inch of stretch at least to make them work...

    The 50s jacket thing is great news, since the current one is both too narrow for my chest and too long for my taste.

    Yeah those look really good @julian-wolf Would you mind measuring the front rise on the 34? That's probably the size for me too I think, but whether the waist will fit depends on the rise.

    Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

    #16 reporting back in... I exchanged the 33 raw contest versions for a new batch 34OW. Soooooo much better. Waist was extremely tight at first (measured at 32") but eased up within a few hours to a comfortable snug fit. The rise is huge, but these fit way better than other jeans I have with high rises (LVC '44 and Edwin Nashville) because they're not too loose through the rest of the top block. Here's a couple of poor quality fit pics, with and without the jacket. Maybe an 18-month contest will encourage me to learn to use a smartphone camera properly. But I've had five years to do that before now, so maybe not.

    Finally got notification that my replacement jeans and jacket are on the way! Sized up from 42 to 44 on jacket and 33 raw to 34 OW on the jeans. Jacket should be fine, but 34 jeans are still going to be a bit dicey because the thigh is so slim. But with the high rise and the stretch, I would have been swimming in the waist within two weeks with the 36s.

    I'd say if you're a 34 in most brands you won't be more than a 34 in TCB. I'm usually a 34 or 35 (although I don't have any of the brands you mention), and I wear 33 in 50s. That's accounting for stretch, of which there is a lot. 60s I couldn't say because the rise is too low for me.

    Well they seem to be all the shop cos my 33 raw are 82 in the waist before soak.

    Denimio have the jeans available to buy but TCB don't, so presumably this is a batch made at the same time as the contest ones, and the next batch at TCB will be next month, as they said. Denimio measured a size 34 for me: Waist 81cm Front rise 35cm Thigh 32.5cm So consistent with what's been described on here.

    Yep, way smaller than measurements for me too. It's too small, but actually fits better than I would expect from the numbers. I've been wondering whether I need to size up one or two when I exchange and I think one will be alright for a slim fit.

    If anyone has a pair with a post-wash or OW waist of 82 to 85 cm that they can't make work, let me know.

    @Nayuta You say there's no difference on the 36 OW from the size chart? But 42.5x2=85, whereas the chart says 91. So that's exactly the same difference as the 34 (6cm) no?

    @indigo_junkie's report of the 33 OW waist has me wondering whether sizing up 1" isn't going to be enough. Any reports of waist measurements on 34 and 36 OW gratefully received...

    I appreciate the positivity but alas, I had already factored in the give in the waist when I went for the 33 based on the measurements. I wore them for 15 mins as well just to see how they felt and decided they definitely weren't going to work. Really disappointed cos I was looking forward to the discipline imposed by having a reason to stick to one pair. But it's a marathon not a sprint so if I can get a pair that fit in October I'll still be able to participate. Just have to keep the envy in check in the meantime!
