hey CMO, fwiw look this pic

12243754_924412010972647_1591020822.jpg

on the left 505 TTS, on the right 505 sized up for a looser fit.

I guess the model is a small skinny man wearing probably a 30 or something like that. if you're bigger proportions will be different of course.

Yeah thanks.... The fit in those photos is good. Just can't convince myself they will fit that good in the bigger size.

they'll fit different for sure, not necessarily worse than the fits above anyway.

@tigerstrom: and how was the first day of wearing the new 505?

 

I dunno why, usually I don't like zippers and sanforized fabric...but those 505 aroused my interest

I like them a lot! They were pretty snug at the waist but they start to feel really good after a day! I was afraid that I wouldn't like the zipper but it hasn't bothered me at all. I love the soft feeling of the denim, one of my favourite things with the 505!

Hey guys, hope this isn't annoying. I am looking into buying the type II jacket and need help sizing. I am 5'9" 170 lbs and had the sugar cane type II in size 40 that fit well. I want to be able to wear a thin hoodie under it. Should I go with a size 40? I am not too concerned with the body length, unless you guys think that it will be outrageously long.

Thanks for any help.

The TCB will be longer, narrower and slimmer. Maybe you won't be able to wear a hoodie underneath and comfortably zip it up, but it should fit you fine.

I'm 5'11" 160lbs and have a 38. Fits slim and can still wear a sweatshirt and button down underneath.

Thanks for the responses. One last question, is the jacket one wash? Can't seem to find any info on here or the TCB site.

Hi mate, mine arrived raw.

May be worth checking with Inoue (contact details on TCB webstore) just to double check as I think someone on here may have got a one-washed version.

Cross post from DWC thread regarding my TCB 60s. - They've been worn as far as possible exclusively since May. They are holding up well, no repairs, and fading is coming on nicely. They are regularly washed - about once a month, maybe every 3 weeks now. Washing at 60 degrees © and tumble drying when time is tight. They shrink up pretty snug post tumble dry, but stretch back within 2 days now. Marbling is quite prominent, but obviously you can't see that from these crappy pics. These are still my favourite jeans :-)

edit - unusually, these pictures really don't show up the level of contrast well. Next decent day I will try to take some pics that showcase contracting better. They look better than this in real life

 

Loooooong overdue update. Work has been pretty frantic recently, so have not been doing this much. I couldn't be happier with how my TCB 60s are progressing. They've been washed way more than I anticipated, and just get better and better. I try to wear them as much as possible, and would say that on average, they have been worn 4-5 times a week since May and washed every 3-4 weeks. I've lost a little weight, so fit is slightly looser than was originally, but by no means loose. Traintracks on these are coming on an absolute treat. Still no repairs and no real sign of needing any, but crotch may need some attention probably in the next 3-4 months I guess.

 

Anyway pics. I won't promise detail pics any time soon, but they will come in time.

They're shaping up nicely mate. Looks like we'll have another killer pair of TCB's on the forum in the not too distant future.

good stuff holio, I like the shirt very much as well. marbling on your 60's is way more prominent than on mine when at that stage, your frequent 60° washes play a role here! If you like it that way no bother then, but as a general rule of thumb there is no need to wash the jeans at 60° every time though. A 30° wash will get your jeans nice and clean just as much if not better depending on which type of detergent you use. 60° wash will shrink more and more! I always washed mine at 30 or 40 except from an accidental boil wash at 90° which shrank my pair to a perfect trim fit. in the same wash I also had my favourite tshirt (kakishibu dye tezomeya) which was completely fucked up though.

I think the 60 degree wash probably takes indigo a little more greedily so in future I will stick to a cool wash and hang dry when possible. Love how the feel straight out of the dryer though. Soft like flannels!

^^ thanks Bobbo. Praise indeed :-)

Looking good holio cornolio! I have a hard time to decide if I'm going to wash my 505s frequently or wait for a couple of months. They are really slow faders!

^ You've only had them a couple of weeks, what do you expect?!

EDIT: Tiger, sorry if I was unclear, what I meant was how do you know they're slow-faders when you've only had them for a few weeks?

I didn't say that I'm going to wash them today. I'm just thinking about how frequently I'm going to wash them.

if I were you I'd wait three months for first wash and then whenever you need it, just to let the denim develop some contrast.

Recently I picked up the raw version of the TCB Type II ... I found lots of good information in this thread prior to my purchase. Thanks to all the contributors. 

 

Here is a photo after an aggressive hot soak and 2 weeks of wear. I'm 5'11" 140lbs w/ 35" chest. I went with the size 38.

Thanks... I'm definitely happy with it.

 

I did a 2-hour soak with water near boiling ... I can snugly fit a a hoodie underneath and still button it up.

did the near boiling water soak significantly shrink the length of the sleeves of the jacket?  thanks.

There's been surprisingly little x-posting from the contest thread in here. I'll throw in some 50's shots, more pics in the contest thread. They sure are stubborn but the texture that comes alive after lots of wash and wear is so good. + Inoue and his boys provides the best roping I've come across.

      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:
