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...

Second from top? Not so much an issue with the button placement or hole size, but in general I'd say the chest is not as roomy as it could be for the sizing (a 40 in my case). I wear mine generally open as an overshirt over a T or light oxford/madras, but when I do button it, normally just the 3/4 buttons because I can't be bothered to do up any more. My problem (well, not really a problem, more of an observation) is that the waist circumference could be larger, or the length could be shorter. I'm pretty slim but if I fasten the last button the waist rides up and bunches out, probably because it's a couple of inches longer than a vintage Type 2.

Some pretty interesting news and updates on the tcb live stream yesterday. A new limited run repro is in the works. Only details they gave out is that they are analyzing the vintage piece right now and it’s older than 100 years. Also they mentioned a new wool lined jacket that will be out probably around next fall, didn’t say which type but said it’s not a type ii.

I have nominal shrinkage with cold washing, then they stretch back in a day or so.

Agreed, it would be tiny for a 44.
But it's not big for me in in terms of my being a 44 and it not fitting. It's big for me in that I compared the sizing to a jacket that fits well across the chest but as the shoulder measurement is bigger the overall fit is too big. The sort of thing you don't know until you have actually bought a jacket, shrunk it and worm it.

I'm looking for sizing recommendations for the TCB 50s jeans. I'd prefer a true waist of 32".

The waist fits me good on my following jeans:

  • Sugarcane BSPOW - Size 32 
  • IH 777s - Size 32

According to the measurements on Okayama's website, a true waist of 32" would require 34 (one-wash)? Is the sizing that off with these? This will be my first 50s repro and my first pair of wider leg jeans so I want to get the waist right without having massively wide legs. Does this denim stretch much / shrink much?

^ Size based on the raw waist, not washed. If you want a true 32” waist, you’ll probably want a size 32 in TCB—but, if you want a true 32” waist, your size 32 Cane’s and Iron Hearts are probably about an inch too big for you…

You sure you’re measuring them right & that they’re fully stretched out?

I just measured the Canes and IH waist (Selfedge style measuring).

Cane: True waist post-stretch: 33

IH: True waist post-stretch: 32.7

So what I'd actually be looking for is a 33 inch true waist after stretch. So I'm guessing a size 33 in the TCB 50 might be the ticket?

Probably, yeah 

My TCB size is 1 up from my SC and IH size (34 vs. 33), and, while I don’t have a pair of standard ‘50s, going TTS usually seems like a safe bet with TCB

If you are placing your order from Okayama denim add a comment or shoot them an email requesting that they confirm the actual waist size of the garment they are going to ship. They’ll do it gladly. Also the one thing I think you should consider is that the 50s will have higher rise than your IH 777 and so your wanted waist measurements may change a bit due to your built.

hello im looking for a reliable size chart for 50s slim jeans, tcb, blue in green and denimo all seem conflicting, even denimo is conflicting itself in an email.

im 33 in iron hearts and 32 in fullcounts

it appears 31 tagged size would be 32.8 inches which is what would be perfect according to tcb

I found tcb own charts to be reliable for both their slim models. The rise on the 50 slims is very low though so pay attention to that measurement

Hmm. Ime either 31 or 32 should be good and probably won't make any real difference. My 33s are an inch bigger than the tagged size, bought thru Denimio who recommended it and the waist is pretty stretchy. But note that the rise is quite low.

I also have a pair of raw black slim 50s in 32 and the post wash measurements are identical to the indigo one wash 33s, hence I can't be definitive...

Curious to try TCB but I'm currently on a budget. Anyone selling a 2nd hand pair of any of their cuts? I'm true 88cm in waist.

Anyone think tcb will ever release a slim 70s cut. Something similar to the levis 505 the Ramones wore would be dope.

I think they’ve already got you covered:

Looking at silhouettes on the webstore, some of the modified 50s may be slimmer though.

They also have a 606 model if you want to go even slimmer

Btw didn't the ramones just size down and taper their jeans?

      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)
