i am wearing my tcb foreman vest today.

 

it is still not what i was aiming for, to be true, it's a workwear vest and definitely not a waistcoat. if i wear my shirt untucked its fine, the chest is perfect, everything else is, as Inoue-san intended, pretty loose and the body is long.

 

but now i have it and sizing down even more wouldn't change the workwear fit, maybe just make me regret wearing too snug fitting clothes.....

dude that's a perfect fit, not too loose at all on you. the design it's not intended to be tight on your body. a size down would be wrong IMO.

at this stage I lost my hope of getting my foreman duck vest made. I think Inoue san is too busy with his backlog of orders to cut and sew my size 42, which is not in stock (he never made a 42 for that design).

hm, grieve news.

i don't know your body and measurements, but as i had to size down one from my normal japanese tops' size i would say a 40 could work for you as well.

my 38 fit me like a potato sack, and this 36 is still generous. although, and we agree all on that, the chest sits correct.

Good to know Nemo. Inoue San tried to convince me too to get a 40. I will triple check again the measurements!

So I rolled the dice and picked up the last 50's cut in size 36 from Tuckshop. Even after reading this thread, and the Happy contest thread, I'm still pretty confused about sizing. My best fitting current pair are 19oz Samurai S510's in size 34. Do you think the 36's will be massively huge on me? Already planning on a good hot soak (possibly even a machine wash), and tumble dry to get all of the shrink out.

 

Any input is appreciated, and thanks guys!

I think 34 would probably have been the right size. If I were you I'd x-post this in the TCB contest thread as you'll probably get better responses there.

Got the Hickory foreman vest. I wear size 38 in the type II jacket and this is a size 36. Thanks to Blue Nemo and Inoue-San for the sizing advice!

To Garden Gnomes...

I love 'em, indeed the whole suit. Denim is just so characterful and I'm really embracing the looser cuts these days.

Not much evo to show, but I think they will fade reasonably fast, despite the wideness. Will stick up some more pics in future.

Just got a message from Inoue San that my vest ordered some three months ago is ready!

Just a matter of weeks and I'll sport a full three piece TCB suit!

      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:
