but creativity encouraged in all things

I like foxy's evocation of transparency

Thunderbolt is there haha. Apparently that's a mark of having used the dryer a good bit, and a classic feature of 60s cuts. My old pair doesn't have it and man it had been beaten hard for years, but never dried in a drier.

It's a cool little detail that I like. Resolute 710s produces some pretty amazing thunderbolt fades too...

 

You learn something every day. Here's one curtesy of my Sugar Cane 66 which was machine dried every time.

i dont want to shit up the 20's contest thread but the rise seems a bit low for the 20's?  I mean, a 36 waist has an 11.3" front rise.  Am I missing something?

I was wondering the same thing actually.

For what it's worth denimio has the rise of a 36 in 50s jeans at 11.8" so just a half inch difference. When I partook in the world tour, the rise on that pair was very similar to my 50s.

my tagged 35 50's contest have a 12" front rise.  the reason Im picky about this thing is right around 11.5" or less for me things start to get uncomfortable quickly.  I cant wear SDA's because they all have sub 11.5" front rises for the size I need

Hey Gnome the rise difference between the 50s and 20s its really minimal, 0,5 cm. Tcb fit pics make the rise look lower than it is as they all like to wear jeans sized up and worn low on the hips. The denim is also stretchy. You'll be grand!

in total agreement about the pain of the sda mini-rise: the reason I went for tcb over sda 101 is precisely this matter

going for my only point of jawns 20s reference: 

measuring my auld lvc 555 201s size 36 (fit like 34s, aka don't fit no more) I note that the front rise is 31cm = very very much part of my reasonings for thinking of sizing up and going for the nappy butt but maximising volume of general jeanage (and going more for the japanese style of oversizing anyway: boring examples beyond excellent nifty-do pix volvo has given us yamamoto is greatly influenced by the costumes seen in pix of August Sander, but then volumised up)

also the 201 denim is stiff as a post, whereas, tcb def has more give...

anyone have perspective on what a 'true' 20s fit is really like? dustbowl pix are going a decade late... (as is the john wayne belt 'n' bracing)

the 20s 30s denim has for sure some give, it's a fairly stretchy fabric.

Pretty hard to find 1920's denim pics, there is a couple floating here and here, but not as much as pics from the 30s. I think the fit was more straight than loose, not as wide as the 40's jeans.

So I ended up buying a TCB type 3. I went with 40 raw and after an hour long hot soak it fits pretty great. Here's the nerdy question: Is the jacket going to continue shrinking like, say if I got caught in the rain or something? I feel like one hot soak isn't enough, but I'm scared to throw it in the washing machine for fear that it'll no longer fit in the chest. What do you guys think? Is this really something I should worry about?

a soak with no agitation surely didn't get rid of all the shrink potential. Whenever you'll need a machine wash it'll shrink a bit more.
I'd suggest to give it a gentle 30° C wash and hang dry. If you're happy with the fit then, basically just keep washing the jacket always at 30° and you'll be fine.

Thanks @volvo240thebest. But I guess my question is do I need to shrink it all the way? Should I worry about getting caught in a rain storm and ending up like Chris Farley in a little coat?

Hey guys, would anyone be able to shed some light on where I can find back rise measurements for the '20s jeans? Preferably for the raw/unwashed versions of the jean in a size 30 and 31? If there are any for the one-washed variant, then that's cool too.

I suggest you to wash the jacket at least at 30°, so if in the future you have to wash it for stains you won't have to expect more shrink, you could just keep to machine wash at 30°...

Tcb 50s in heavy dad action

First read that as "heavy dad auction" and was very confused. 

Looking well, as always!

Welp, here they are: My 60's in all their glory- kinda hard to tell here, but there is a LOT of "extra" denim here. :D

Just put them through a warm spin cycle and they are now drying in the generous dose of California sun we've got today. The waist was perfect, maybe even a little tight before I washed them, so I wriggled into them before I hung them out to dry, and stuck my forearm in the waistband lengthwise for some extra stretch. Wish me luck!

Hey guys, just doing another post here in regards to the TCB '20s jean back rise measurements. These are the lengths in centimetres after a wash. Hopefully this will help people that are unsure!

      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:
