I should get pics of hardware soon. Rivets are the same used in the 50s, steel.

[edit] +++rep for the Walter Sobchak avatar. I used to impersonate with the Dude but the more old I get the more Sobchak I feel haha 

 

 

I think there's a little Walter in all of us these days! I will watch the thread for more details. This sounds interesting to me.

Having never participated in a contest like this, how does it work exactly? We just wear the jeans and at the end see who has the best fades?

As well as the fades, contest threads often give an insight into people’s lives as you’re encouraged to share what you do in your jeans. Holidays, weddings etc right through to mundane daily life. For me this can be as fun as the jeans themselves, but then I’m a nosey git!

Well done @volvo240thebest

Is the ww2 going to be wider than the 50s or the 20s? Or both? 

This is going to be the widest 5p jean by Tcb, it's slightly wider than the 50s which are wider than the 20s. I guess it will be just barely wider than the 50s.

Ah. I sized down an inch in the 20s compared to the 50s because I thought the seat was wider. Sorry to bore you, is that appropriate here? Do we have a clue of seat, thigh and leg opening vs the 50s?

( I am owed by the way, I've done a decade of helping LVC folks size their 47 vs 55, I must surely be able to cash in my karma).

Ryo sporting the WWII Jacket- loving this cut!!! A little shorter and bigger arm openings than the 50s. CD99AD2F-950A-41F9-927B-FD630E52A8D9.thumb.png.237a6e287da105200138227c44dfc0f7.png

Wow both these look amazing and the attention to details on the over stitching on the back pockets is to die for

It's too early to say, let's wait until we see the chart, we should have it mid week next week.
I speak for my size (36). 50s are slimmer through the hip and leg but wider in the hem. 20s are 23,5 cm 50s are 24,5, and I love that extra cm!

Still no list! I prefer to wait until we have a sizing chart and a firm price quote to get preorders, just to avoid confusion/questions/etc etc.

Sizing chart should be ready mid week next week!

I'm excited! Maybe I can lose some of this quarantine weight before ordering time. All of my jeans are a wee bit tight.

yeah you're right, we need fit pics and some photos of the jeans too. fit pics will be available in a couple days. As Ryo said in the first sample shrank more than expected, now they've dialed up the shrink ratio (the jacket was made after the jeans) and they'll make a second sample which should show the intended fit.

Just finished the live stream and wanted to say thanks to volvo and the TCB crew! This is shaping up to be the best contest yet, and I'm impressed by the details and comradery all around! Looking forward to starting this, can't believe how fast TCB is able to turn this all around. 

@TCBINOUE @volvo240thebest please be sure to post the sample fading once complete! The denim looks amazing as well!

It will never be short enough uh :D?!? I've told Ryo to try and be closer to the original fit and they surely did, compared the the 50s and 30s jackets. It could be shorter but at the end of the day the designer is Hajime and he made it the way he likes it to be made.

For the jeans let's wait the sizing chart ;)

      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:
