    Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

    @volvo240thebest -sorry to hear things have been bad but nice to see you here again. Here's to a much better 2022 - and best of luck with any late on s40's dremeling. If only a pic of an old (very )yello Volvo could brighten the day.....

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    Yes @unders - it’s always felt like some confirmation of being welrd also have you ever noticed that just when you’re doing something like this or jeans related how it will immediately draw whoever else is somewhere else in the house to hone in on you so you feel even stranger? Sort of related - I always think one reason people don’t take pictures and post as often as they might it’s partly because of the disapproval of our partners that when there’s all this other proper stuff like roof leaks and repairs that need doing - and youre actually taking PHOTOS of your JEANS??

    Is it just me or is it really tricky to capture denim - can look really different and v silvery sometimes. Have discarded pictures often as they have blah-ed out all the interesting variations..

    Warehouse

    ^ that’s interesting on the 46’s @Broark. I couldn’t resist the siren call of all those appealing Warehouse anniversary year jeans and as well as the 100xDSB’s I did also get the 46’s. They’re Darker and much stiffer than the others - and so I could do this after their soak - which I’d never managed to do before.. (Beautiful freak - think I’d somehow filtered out that the 14.5 oz was still on the 800

    Cheers - yeah that cut is really good. I love getting you all's comparisons of jeans you all have some experience with....I've wondered how much it is a 47 cut, that many Warehouse shapes are both around now and in recent years. Some of the Japanese sites suggest most of their new cuts are v like their DD 47 (the 1001's and 1000xDSB are described like that and even the 1946 has v similar measurements). Its like Warehouse feel like they've created and refined their ideal shape...(just a view tho....). Only just started to wear my 1000xDSB so too early to say - but the feel and colour after a soak I really like - they hang softer earlier on then most of my other jeans... Banner denim looks amazing - can't get that as well now tho

    hi - Broark, just to put you on the spot - do you have any favourites out of all your different Warehouses? - cut or denim?

    I couldn't say for certain, but I think this is a current version of the Warehouse 1000 denim from before the banner denim - this is what's on my jeans (the 700 I bought in 2010 and possibly the D5 tho that had a deadstock element to it so possibly a different version of the 1000xx). It's 100% Memphis cotton and 14.5 oz 6x6. And as far as I remember it seemed to be known as 1000xx back then. Their naming of denim and cuts didn't seem to have consistency but may just have been lost to us outside of Japan.... Agree Coldsummer about the weight of 13.5 oz feels good tho - hangs well when newer... that's the weight of the new 1000x deadstock blues too

    I maybe owe a better jeans update for the contest - it’s been a year after all But a sort of fit pic combined showing the wear (or lack of it) They haven’t been my only jeans this 12 months - but I’ve worn them a lot and like them a lot. year 2 here we go…

    Away westwards on a v rare short trip. Across to Mull with the sky closed in until a brief break in the clouds gave us a view of the lighthouse from the ferry over. plus a Misty morning start and a lush sunset. also saw An opportunity : a new chance to work anywhere….( Midge cream needed) And the TCB40’s as they are (a brightened shot) as had a handy mirror in the cottage

    Hi Julian-Wolf I havent started wearing them yet tho I've washed and the length is 32 1/2". Not dryered yet tho Really nice of course - denim is not as thick as my older Warehouse (1000 - the Memphis denim) so I think they are going to hang differently and better earlier in their life......

    77 and a 3/4 year old (small) progress update. I added day one photos - which look needed to show there's really been more evolution than there might appear at first sight.... Plenty time to 2022......

    Hi @volvo240thebest - thats a downer to hear for you and your family. We'd noticed you being away - but I'd wondered if you were just genning up on starching and "glue" techniques . Really hope for massive improvement - and quickest - and all the best to you and your wife

    Thanks - its brilliant denim - the 1000 6x6 Memphis denim. I love the combination of the shades of blues - and especially the lightish dark at the top. I know it hasn't got more of the elusive aged patina that a lot of you all get that comes from random dirt, work materials, iron ore(?) wood unknown.... - I think I am too much a puritan and protect them far too much - especially back when first got these when they're expensive and you only had a couple pairs...Now more relaxed but still a bit like that now.....

    Photo update on the 700’s I’ve had since 2010 - wearing occasionally over the last 3 months or so between the contest TCB WW2’s. They’re providing the faded blues that the TCBs stubbornly arent yielding yet They’re a bit tight but just about fit.....
