    Can anyone tell me please: if I'm a 34 in TCB jeans what size should I take in the Sugar Cane Garrison belt?

    Black 50s are smaller in the waist than indigo. I'm a 33 in the indigo, 34 in the black. IMO if you're a 34 in Iron Heart, you'll be a 34 or 33 in TCB 50s. Definitely not a 36, no way.

    #16 coming back into the game... Got mine near the end of October, after a size swap, so no special pocket bags or competition patch for me. Have been wearing them pretty consistently since, with a week off here and there. Took a while to get used to the incredibly high rise, but get used to them I did, and now I love the fit. First pic is April, after one wash. The rest are a couple of days ago, after another wash, and a crotch and hem repair.

    I don't mind the rise in terms of looks. It's fine if you don't tuck things in, which I don't most of the time. But now that the waist has got a little loose, when they slip down lots of material gets bunched up around the crotch, which is annoying. And for some reason I can't get a belt to keep jeans that high up on my waist.

    That's why just measuring your waist and getting the corresponding size doesn't always work.

    Really enjoying the fit of both jeans and jacket now. Temperatures are just right for jacket over t-shirt at the moment as well.

    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.

    #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.
