Hello

I have Catboy and 30s jackets both in size 40. They fit about the same. Maybe the Catboy is little bit slimmer.  i can feel the fabric of catboy is definitely stiffer...

Hey everyone, long time lurker, here to bug everyone here with a newbie 50’s sizing question.

 

After hours of combing through old posts, I thought I was set on a one wash 32, maybeeee a 31 since I’d prefer these to be as slim as possible (without killing my waist). I’m a 32 in most other pants, my best fitting pants are a hair over 16 inches when laid flat and pulled.

 

I was lucky enough to find a new pair of 32 one wash 50’s on Grailed. However, when I asked the seller to take a measurement of the waist, they came back to me with a 28.5 inch meausurment. I thought I was going crazy, so I went to the TCB site, and they even list the size 32 one wash 50’s as a 37cm/14.57 inch waist. Is the waist expansion really that extreme? Will 14.5 really stretch out to 16 inches? I always though that after all shrinking and stretching accounted for, the measured size would end up the same as tagged size for TCB 50’s. Any advice?

I recall my 50s one wash size 32 coming in at 78cm (30.7 in) when I got them. They definitely stretch to a true 32 size, because I have lost weight since I got them and they’re way too big on me now. Message me and I can send you measurements of my pair after many washes.

I just got some 50’s in the mail today! Definitely glad I didn’t size down. Shout out to https://www.clever-luck.com/ for all their help. Always nice to support a local retailer.

It is currently the Obon holiday period in Japan, most likely that's the reason? Many retailers are closed through the ~18th

Fit pics have arrived. After a day the waist hasn’t stretched as much as I was hoping. Scared to even think about washing them.

 

I love the loose fit of the legs, though I fear sizing up would make them too loose. Might give it another couple days, but sad these may not work out :( I wonder if a size 33 in the 60’s would be a compromise, or just got a different route and get size 32 505’s

received a reply back which has has made me more confused about sizing. hoping @volvo240thebest and others can potentially help.

i currently wear a size 3 in orslow 107s which are great, but i want something with a slightly wider thigh. i thought a size 34 in the one wash 60s would be okay, but ryo suggested a 36. somewhat apprehensive about that as i've never been a 36 in anything: samurai, eternal, momotaro, whatever.

orslow 107s size 3 approx
waist: 85cm (this is after stretch, too)
thigh: 28.5cm
rise: 29cm

tcb 60s size 34 approx
waist: 84cm
thigh: 32.5cm
rise: 26.5cm

tcb 60s size 36 approx
waist: 89cm
thigh: 34cm
rise: 27cm

is the rise that much of a killer? am i missing something...? i'm 186cm/82kg if it makes a difference. i could look at the 50s instead, but i think the leg opening will be too big for my tastes.

Yes. It is. I got the same size as my 50s -32 - the rise on the 50s is 11.5 I think. The rise on the 60s is around 10. They’re unwearable. Sizing up would def be necessary but then the thighs and leg are larger so why even bother? Just get the 50s. They’re perfect.

interesting. he said the 50s fit smaller than the 60s too which was a surprise. maybe neither cut is for me (although i love my 50s jacket).

^ like you, I've never been a 36 in anything... always a 33–34 depending, but acting on the advice of @volvo240thebest I went with a 36 raw for the TCB '40s contest. I do remember the one time I tried on TCBs in person (can't remember which cut) at Great Southern Denim (sadly missed), the 34 inch waist scored a hard "no" from all parties... I could fit into them, I guess, but it wasn't pretty. That was the largest size on offer at the time. Hoping I can swallow my pride and embrace the incoming pair...

I'm a 34 in most denim but wear a 36 in 50s and went for the same in the 40s. TCB (and some other brands) have s bit of a gap between their 34 and 36 (in 5 pockets jeans) sizes I'd say which is probably because they stay pretty true to the labeled size. I could probably get into a pair of 34's but it wouldn't be pretty. A 34 does however fit me perfectly in the Seaman's trousers. 89 cm or so around is my sweet spot I've found.

Ryo shipped my jeans Monday morning, arrived UK Wednesday Morning! 

Love the 50s denim and the details on TCB the puckering on the yoke is Beautiful and cant wait for the evo even though Im not ever in a rush for the fadez. ...

The slim 50s got to go , the rise was just to low for me to be comfortable wearing them so ordered the Slim R. Not going to be a popular cut with many but not as slim as the measurements suggest. Almost exactly the same fit as PBJ X019. 

Slim 50s going on Grailed this weekend if anyone wants to grab em first, DM me

      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:
