If I remember right I would have taken 1 size up on the 60 compared to 50. Volvo wears both pair in the same size. Better too big than too small as belts are life saving tools. Only you can know if the lower rise will bother you.

My 60s are a size up from my 50s and I’m glad I sized up one. The waist of the 32 in the 60s felt very similar to waist of the 31 in the 50s to me.

I wear the same indeed. My advice for 60s is size according to thigh. The thigh on bigger sizes is slim.

@volvo240thebest okay that’s good to note, i’m just nervous because i lost weight so it’s tough to choose a size. my size 32 50s are pretty big on me, i could easily be a 31 or maybe even 30, so that’s why i’m confused on what i want to go with, maybe i’ll go 31 in the 60s

Tailors tape is your friend in these cases...

Just measured your 360 circumference at the point where the jeans would sit (60s sit quite on the hips). Allow a little bit for stretch.

If it were me I’d buy the 31 and wear a belt if needed. I’d rather be slightly big than too small

not sure which jacket s you meant. you're about my same height/weight, but fit depends also on your chest circumference. Mine is about 102/104 depending how fully inflated I am!
I have no experience with the catboy but generally I hear it's tighter than the others. I would get the 44.  Same with the 30s jacket. I wear the 42 on the 30s but it works better witth only a tee or shirt underneath. 50s and 60s jacket I wear a 42 and fits great. Seaman on the other side is loose. I have a 42 but could easily wear a 40.

Correct. I can fit nicely a sweatshirt under the 50's and  60s jackets. If I wear a sweatshirt under the 30s jacket usually I only close one or two buttons otherwise it feels too tight.

I am still happy with the 30s sizing though. I think a 44 would have been too long in sleeves and torso.

My favourite Tcb jean jacket is the 60s. They're all very well made, but the 60s fit on me is the best of the lot and the weight/heft of the denim makes it feel always great all year round. The 30s jacket is very light, works better on hotter months.

I look forward to the 40s jacket now. Ryo's advice was to get a 44 but I went with a 42 anyway, basically for the same reason I got a 42 on the 30s...

Make sure your chest circumference bis no more than mine otherwise it won't work. For me it's borderline..

The details and fabric look interesting but the cut is not for me(I think it’s similar to the 60s cut when looking at the measurements? Not sure). I kinda wish they did it in the 50s cut but also not because in a few weeks the contest jeans will hopefully be on their way.

The denimio's are actually pretty cool, 29% Japanese paper, really curious to see how they'll fade but I definitely don't need another pair of jeans :X

      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:
