am i correct in thinking that the 60s are slightly tapered, whereas the 50s aren't?

edit: damn, TCB are sold out of 60s in my size.

They have to be more tapered than the 50s, they're overall slimmer. But not that slim - they're less tapered than many 66 cuts including LVC I think (haven't measured).

(Edit, took some stuff out for washing, LVC in a tag 32, essentially the same size, are probably an inch less at the cuffs than TCB).

Agreed.  The 60s are tapered, but not too tapered...slimmer, but not too slim...the rise is lower, but not too low with a fairly roomy top block.  They are one of my favorite fitting pairs. 

Denimio sells them also, so they may have your size.

^ … with a fairly roomy top block... surely but not too roomy?

(meant in a good way fresh!)

I should post more of my 60s jacket.
I think I am the only one around here to own one?

it's a great jacket, my favourite of the 20s/50s/60s trifecta.

got the shorts in the mail, really nice fabric but definitely runs kind of trim, ordered another one in Medium so this Small is up for grabs if anyone wants  a deal(probably best for 30-31 waist)

Those of you who bought the one-washed 50’s. Did you get anymore shrinkage from the inseam?

Great news! I don't think it's at all unreasonable having two mid-'40s contests run simultaneously, if that's what it comes down to—desperate times call for desperate measures and all that

Excited to see what year his original is from and how those details will translate to his pair!

I am excited too, but being the overseas fanboy no.1 I am already sold, whatever flavour of SXX it will be!
Ryo will share more details when possible.

Should we include the jacket for the contest? Full wwii tux?

That's great news. Re: the jacket, I wonder if we'll see the usual TCB thing of a modified length. I'd be much more into a true repro, but that doesn't seem to be his style when it comes to jackets.

      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:
