Hi guys. Have a pair of Warehouse 800 (pics below). they are size 31, worn about 20-30 times. they are still a bit snug in top block. 

want to get a pair of TCB 50s, and tried them in raw/non-washed at American Classics in london. they recommended i go for size 33. just a bit confused as WH 800 31 as well as FC 1108, although both a bit tight in upper block. i have tried to measure my waist as would like to buy TTS but cant seem to get a sensible waist measurement. any advice appreciated. for reference i'm 5'7 around 160lbs. doing cross fit these days so thighs getting a bit bigger

if i'm being honest with myself i dont wear the WH of FC to work, as i find my cheap 501s from last year more comfortable. so if the TCB a bit looser could be fine. just from 31 - 33 seems like a big jump and my size hasnt changed

Thanks! I love it too! I just wish they were more of a 60 cut with the 50 denim!

i really hope this happens at some point... would pay for a custom build to get 50s denim in that cut if i could. has inoue said anything about doing something like this in recent times? i know someone said it was a possibility, but that was before the 50s slim came out.

Does anyone have waist and rise measurements of a worn-in pair of 50s size 29 and/or 30?  I'm on the fence between the two sizes.  For reference, I wear a size 29 in FC 1108 (Zimbabwe cotton with stretching properties, maybe similar to TCB 50s?) and 30 in LVC ('47, '54, and '67).  Thinking of pulling the trigger on a pair of these very soon and likely having Inoue do the hem job.

My size 30: 

Exactly 30 in the waist

Front rise 11.5, back rise 16

Think I'm gonna go ahead and order the 29 based on measurements and the amount of stretch after wear, would I just contact Inoue and provide him with my final desired inseam length and he can calculate the shrinkage?  I only see the washed version in the TCB store, is there unwashed/raw version? Will the washed version still require additional soaks/washes to get all the shrinkage out?

Thanks Bobbo! Tried IG too but only found new ones. Not sure if your fellows at manufaktur sold them? But I think 50sblack maybe fade like old orange tab´s (550s). Turning out more grayish (and more like blue jeans) than black/black yarn. Guess I gotta jump on the wagon here then, since they seem to be FOB´s on sufu

I have a pair. They are hard to fade, have about 30 wears since winter with a hot soak but put away for summer. So far only fades are showing up around waist areas and a bit on rear pockets. The fabric is nice and soft, very comfy. But it doesn't quite feel like blue denim. I'm going to go at them hard this fall, I think.
