Thanks @volvo240thebest

 

Size 34 was way too low though it might have worked on the legs. But I couldn't be happier with the fit, am wearing them the first day and really like it. 

 

@Kit Carruthers those look beautiful

@beautiful_FrEaK The only credit I can take for my dad's pair is that I ordered them for him. I've got him into a few nice pairs over the years (LVC and OrSlow, as well as these). Will share some more over the ensuing days of quarantine...

I actually thought all the contest jeans were great, I'd often look at them and think they looked better than mine. But then looking at mine in the factory they seem to look even better than I remember them!
Interesting, too, how similar all my different jeans seem to end up. Those two are really similar, although when you look at the 50s close-up there's beautiful detailing where the warp has just worn away over the whisker creases.
Your jeans are great, Volvo, you are the role model we're all trying to emulate. ! Stay well. x

those really look great on you Flo. Almost changed my mind on the cut after seeing your fit.

Funny how I seem to really enjoy wearing a pair when it's more or less "done". Here's the 20s/30s tux.

I spent a few days in Kurashiki, visiting Nihon Menpu, but sadly didn't visit TCB.

Carrying on from the theme of max powers 50's slims I thought I'd share my thoughts on the catboy slims as there seems to be very little info out there on them.  I was fortunate to pick this pair up from eBay in barely used condition, already hemmed to my leg length for just £31.  The listing was pretty bad though and while there were limited pictured measurements that looked like they should fit but there was no mention of their tag size.  Didn't realise the size tab was sewn into the watch pocket.  So I'm normally a 34 but these are a 36. As max mentioned in his thoughts on his 50's slim, sizing up is not a problem with the TCB slim cuts as it gives a bit more rise.

Size wise they fit true to size in the waist, front rise on a size 36 is 11 inches and leg opening is 7.25 inches but these have been shortened to a 28 inch inside leg so maybe the taper carries on a bit?  Speaking to Ryu at TCB he reckons the catboy fabric has about 0.5 inches more stretch in it than the 50s fabric.

Although they are not a pair of jeans I'd normally go for I'm really enjoying wearing them. The denim pops with some beautiful purple hues, the patch is beautiful and wearing them oversized makes them really comfortable (even with the unflattering Lee wide pocket placement!).

And a few crappy images...

I'm a bit confused by tcb sizing and looking at catboy slims.... 

(Asking for a friend :ph34r:, no buy 2020)  

Most brands I'm a 31 waist, although have lost quite a bit of weight recently, based on my purchase history Denimio are suggesting a 30 or even a 29 as I took a 30 in Oni and 31 in SDA....

I have to admit they got the Oni sizing advice spot on but I'm real hesitant to order a 29 or 30 from Ryo, get them hemmed and not be able to return. 

Anyone got a pair in 29/30/31 to confirm measurements?

My Tcb 505. They have been on hiatus for a long time but I need to bring them back this summer. They will look great with more wear and washes.

Hi max power can I ask how you would compare these to your resolute 710s I also have the resolutes 710&712 in 36 and I’ve been looking at these for a while any help appreciated cheers

@lee porter the waist is almost identical in my sizes 36. The main difference is that the tcb has a fuller leg throughout the hip to the hem. It tapers  in the end so the hem is only about 0.5cm wider but the whole fit is fuller. I hope this helps? I'll try to take comparison fit pics in the next days, might take a while though.

 

The denim feels pretty similar to Resolute BTW, a bit underwhelming at first but benefits from washing

      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:
