looks great. I haven't bought one as I definitely like more the type 3. Really hope Hajime will come up with a boa/sherpa lined type 3 next year :ph34r:

Having been so impressed with the Cat Boy denim I picked up a jacket from American classics as they're out of stock in Japan. Turns out after a soak a 44 is too big for me. Lovely jacket though. 

Not sure what the rules are with regards to sales posts, but if anyone want to take it off my hands please give me a shout.

Are the measurements as the TCB website suggests?

No they weren't, it was a bit bigger. But since taking this photo I decided to machine wash. This is something that I swore I would never do since  I first got a pair of raw LVC nearly twenty years ago, washed them and the result wash a harsh fade from a fold in the machine running diagonally down the leg. I honestly don't know how anyone can wash raw denim in the machine when it is always a gamble that this would happen.

Anyway, in this instance it has worked without ruining the jacket and it has now shrunk to much closer to the measurements TCB give on their site and so I think I'm gonna keep it now. Sorry CSL. It would have been an expensive trade for me having purchased from American Classics, but only able to sell o at less than the direct from TCB price.

Were the blanket-lined Type II jackets a limited run or just selling out faster than they can be remade? They look great but unfortunately seem unavailable in most sizes.

Some machines are way harsher than others—it’s no gamble if you know your jeans are gonna come out looking fine

No worries. Glad the jacket has worked out for you. About washing, on our machine you can wash gentle cycle, no spin. It doesn't leave any crease marks. I think all older machines were rough on clothes.

Do you have any interest in a pair of 50s in size 36? I bought them a while back on sale from Tempo. In the meantime after wearing the 40s I've decided the 50s are a bit low waisted for my taste. They are new, just worn for half an hour sitting on the sofa.

Also throwing this out there. If anyone has a pair of 40s in waist 36 that they'd like to trade let me know. They'd need to be a longish inseam. I'd also consider other trades. Don't know if shipping would make out of country trade impractical. I'm in the US.

Yes!  Chore coats are extremely practical, but not warm.  A warm one would be a nice addition.

I've thought about the Tabby's jacket.  Nice layout, but a fairly short and boxy design, true?

Quite boxy but not that short. I love mine. It is indeed not warm, but has room to layer underneath.

I have blanket lined Carhartt with biswing back for “real” chores and it’s exceptionally warm.

I'm considering selling my black 50's size 33 that I recently got, they are just a bit too small.  Any interest?

does anyone have a somewhat awkward second button on their 50s jacket? all my other buttons do up perfectly, except the second button down is really strained and pulls significantly. i've noticed this is super common in various TCB fit pics too, although it's just isolated to that second button...

      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:
