    Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

    Nice but subtle @unders. Ive not posted for a while and when I took some photos of mine I wasn't able to capture the super subtle wear so far - but I think they look really like yours so if its ok with you I'll say mine are currently looking very very much like yours Unders. Like my pair a lot - but its maybe the way they hang as much as the wear at this state... Appreciating everyones updates - and some pairs looking really very well worn at the 4 month mark
  2. ^ Thats a great update - thanks for taking the trouble . Its really nice to see a few different pairs together in the same pictures. With the brain and eye being what they are, it isn't always to remember and think of the differing colours, shapes etc from pairs you've seen at different times and different lights etc..So together like this I like seeing the bluer, greyer, brighter tones.

    Warehouse

    Thanks @aho - Warehouse denim really is good isnt it . Think I was lucky to choose both my Warehouse pairs in my early Japanese denim days when it was tricky to get it right For a while after I got them I was unsure about how they fitted - sometimes ok but then often not quite right - and I didn't help by getting them a bit small (and liking slimmer but wanting wider shapes too - which possibly didn't suit me).. Sounds obvious but one of the main change over time apart from the obvious is the softening and wearing out means they hang so differently - usually so much better - and that seems more so the wider the shape. I wasn't supposed to be getting any more jeans after the TCB WW2's but I've just got the 1000x - I couldn't resist. I think I've got them in the right size (not soaked yet)

    Warehouse

    There are my 700’s that I’ve been wearing again after a while - alongside the TCB WW3’s They took a long while to shrink down to their final size - in those no wash days - and their final size was a bit small - so I haven’t worn them as much as my D5’s. They’re similar denim to those - a bit bluer maybe - 1000 v the oxidised 1000 on D5’s - really love it - their denim to me Yeshas a balance of old Levi’s looking and heightened Japanese interest I eventually cut off the cinch as they weren’t big enough to warrant it - tho agonised over that as possible vandalism I always thought the cinch was a good functional idea that would work for that Japanese oversize for but never got to try it cos of the missizing

    ^sorry to see you go (contest wise) @roomtemplacroix - lots of good pics from you - but if they're not right makes sense. And esp to move them on (looks regretfully across at my jeans tub which still has pairs jammed at the bottom that don't quite fit -but never had the outlet(at the time) to sell on..)

    well it seems to work alright @bartlebyyphonics . Like you say there's more consideration to it to make it look good , tho appears more random.. WW2's go well with it too.. Seen some of your other pics where you've possibly a larger and littler jacket : nice looks.. its about how bigger but shorter jackets actually hang somehow.... Chore coats good - and the cheap surplus great no? I also often wear a couple jackets ( but not in a stylish way tho ) - its a nice way to wear more of the stuff you like . You have to take the odd critical/quizzical looks alright.. (And 2 pairs of jeans in the cold too..(ahem....) Looking forward to enjoying everyones contest stuff and how the TCB's go

    Thanks for the replies @justintk and @beautiful_FrEaK - yep I get what youre meaning re the TCB's. I feel a little of that too tho not as badly. It could well be less versatile with what to wear but I really like it and feels distinctive. And like the denim a lot. One of the extra appeals - as many of you have said - is I love the ethos of TCB - seems connected to the people into their jeans etc and interested in them Just too say im not meaning to take away from the WW2's themselves, just always curious on other jeans and peoples thoughts etc so used it as an excuse to ask.... And what makes peoples' favourites. I almost bought the Resolute 710 BF at Trunk in London last year funnily enough but when I went down and in to the shop they didn't have any - and at that point id vowed Never to buy more jeans without trying on.. And I didn't do.. Well, - not until the TCB's. Most of my older jeans are slimmer though and I've always wanted to get bigger so WW2's more along that line... The TCB contest has actually got me more back into jeans interest and going back and trying on my old pairs... risk of rambling now......

    Just chiming in on the discussion on fits - not cos I know anything but its interesting what people are thinking. @volvo240thebest that is a really nice easygoing look there. I think from those that have posted fit pics they look fine don't they.. I remember some early posts people looked great in them. Its funny, sometimes people post a pic and you think that looks pretty good - wish mine fitted more like that - and then couple weeks later they say not working out - something about it is just off and not always apparent to others most of the time Maybe a bit of an unfair question but @beautiful_FrEaK - you've probably got more experience of the variety of jeans than most to compare the TCB's with so its probably more clear to you - what's some of your favourite fitting jeans just for hanging out? Anyone else got real favourites that they've got? I find they change quite a lot over time - as the jeans get older and hang differently (usually betterly)
  11. this choice isn't what you get on a radio station is it. . nor some of these outfits.....

    Today. Although I don't have any noticeable fading on my jeans - I still really liking the very dark inky (almost black) colour they are at the moment, and the shape/way they hang.
