Have you received your chambray shirt yet volvo? I’m interested in seeing your measurements (as well as your handsome pictures of course!).

I did actually, but had to leave the same day the parcel arrived. It's beautiful and fits perfect. I'll post pics and measurements once I'm back home next week.

Thanks @volvo240thebest! Yeah they’re a different cut than I’m used to. I’ve got really skinny legs so I usually go for slimmer cuts but wanted to give them a go. Loving the fabric and the way they fade. They’ve had their 9th wash since the pics above. I’ll update in a few weeks.

Does anyone have any experience with the TCB 60’s jacket? The measurements on Denimio tell me I should go for the 36, but my gut says 38 just by judging off fit pics of people 50’s jackets who are my same dimensions (5’11”, 155lbs). Does anyone know of the one wash version shrinks even more after washing? Thanks!

Apologies I still haven't had time to take some pics of the TCB catlight chambray shirt. It's gorgeous anyway.

As per @Maynard Friedman request here's a comparison between tcb chart and real life measurements:

chambray shirt, size 44

TCB measurements:
Chest: 59 cm
Shoulder width: 48,5 cm
Overall length: 77 cm
Sleeve length: 67.5 cm
 

Volvo's measurements:
Chest: 59 cm
Shoulder width: 48,5 cm
Overall length: 77 cm
Sleeve length: 67.00 cm

My shirt has been washed and then worn for half a day prior to take measurements.

Imperial measurements are terribly difficult for poor peasants from southern Europe, I'm sorry you will have to rely on an online converter.

@volvo240thebest sorry if I  missed this, but was there any shrinkage when washed the first time? 

sorry I haven't measured the shirt before washing. I wanted to, but my wife washed the shirt without telling me. Anyway the post wash measurements I have line up perfectly with the chart.

I guess because the denim shirt is a thicker fabric?

Hello everyone,

I'm having a small situation in regards to ordering directly from Inoue. I purchased a pair of Baker pants last week. I'm still waiting for them to be shipped, but when I went on the website today, it said overseas shipping is not supported. I sent Inoue an email a couple days ago and still no reply. Should I continue waiting? Will I get my pants?! Anyone have experience with wait times and ordering directly through TCB? Would appreciate any insight.

I’ve never had any issues with ordering direct and shipping overseas. He just sends a paypal invoice and make sure to give him the correct mailing address and all will be fine so long as your customs doesn’t have any issues. Maybe just ask for the tracking info?

My TCB 50's have now become my outdoor climbing pants. Probably going to tear them apart but I'm cool with that.

      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:
