With mister Volvo being swamped with work I'll share the workload of the organizing the tour. To our great delight we've successfully talked Inoue-san into another SUFUxTCB adventure. Following the TCB 50's contest, the introduction of the ranchman shirt and the upcoming TCB 20's contest in 2018, we're now also doing a world tour - starring a prototype of the very jean we will rock in the next TCB contest. Inoue and his crew is basing the jeans off of a vintage pair of Levi's from the 1920's he got a hold of back in april and will also rock a completely new denim. For the tour we'll have a size 32 for our disposal. Measurements will hopefully be sorted out. We're kicking off the tour at TCB's very own factory in Kurashiki where I will pick up the jeans during the last week of july. The current roster of TCB rockstars: Bobbo (Sweden) Paul T (UK) Red Dragon (Indonesia) NYC surfer (USA) JaredLee (USA) Ooms (Indonesia) Foxy (Germany/Russia) Ironhorse (Taiwan) Articulate (USA) Jigsaw (Indonesia) Holio Cornolio (UK) Mandel9000 (NOR) Subs: Reverendglasseye Louisbosco FeloniusMonk The roster is full for now, although it won't hurt having a few subs! The original and what we're looking forward to:
