you probably are 80 kg rather than 180 kg's ahaha! I apreciate your efforts in converting from stones/lbs to kilos though!

size 42 same as the jacket, fits parfait, but I am 178cm tall and 88 kilos, so slighty bigger than you. you could probably fit a 40 for a snug fit, 38 would be too slim I think.

you got a bad case of TCB acquisition syndrome I see!

^ I knew you would like it! regular wide-ish thighs and a taper sounds perfect for your build.

I am sort of horrified by the ratio between the thigh and that taper (still liking wounds after the epic mis-sizing of the UES 400T!) but I'll get these 505 nonetheless, for TCB fanboy-ism and also because i sense these won't fit the same as the UES even if they have something in common measurements-wise.

I'll hold til the end of the 50's contest though!

definitely size 36 TTS here, same as 60's and 50's, sure it'll work. could probably even size down and try to stretch the hell out of it but won't.

i just love how hajime can hem something for you if you ask him or make something special order for anyone who asks.  mad props to mr. inoue!!!  i have always supported the underdogs, the smaller labels, always have and always will. 

 

i have worn the seamen jumper for a week now and it's such a lovely jacket.  to me it's like a light chore coat.  i got two other chore coats but they are lined and not too great for the spring but this seamen jumper is perfection!!!!  i feel so at ease when i am in this jumper.  as i have said before, slowly but surely i will get the 60 jeans.  next year hopefully the pre shrunk jeans. 

 

 

 

for your denim heads, have you heard of this denim photographer named cory piehowicz?  you guys are going to love his blog.  there are some great photos of jeans and some great fades and a lot of dust too!  beware of the high cuffs!

I went to the post office in my lunchbreak and collected my 505s! They are exactly what I wanted! The waist on my size 32 measure exactly 32 or 80cm. I will give you all measurements when I come home from work!

In Italy of musicians known as VOLVO
Also planning of the organizers to wear RANCHMAN all over the world gave me in charge.
50's to be updated from time to time such from him
In the past also I wrote it features volvo peculiar beard
As a result of thought and why whether this beard comes in, we are convinced by watching his live video.
Unique step when you play a musical instrument
Perhaps, this step is whether not'm given rise to beard ....
In this open-air live you can see that me to wear the 60's.

Yep. Great fit tiger. You will love these jeans. Mine are getting better and better!

Edit: I'm an idiot. I don't have the 505 I have the 60s. I'm sure you will love the 505 as much as I love my 60s! Doh

denim looks very nice. If I got it correctly it's made with the same cotton used for your jacket as well. is it the photo or it looks lighter in colour compared to the 60's denim?

      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:
