has me itching for my pair. I ordered my 60s about 12 days ago so i should be getting them this week!

I sent yours out same day as Marcus' pair if i recall correctly. Shipping routes to CA from Aus are quicker so you should have yours shortly!

Thanks, Volvo! To quote one of my favorite commercials from the 80's; "I learned it by watching you!"

Oh man, that just opened an '80s portal that I'm going to get lost in for a while...

TCB 60's arrived at my place today. Very nice stuff but a little tighter in the waist than I thought they would be, thankfully I sized up from my 50's.

Nice collection, Bobbo. You've probably already read this elsewhere, while the 60s don't stretch a ton, the stretch they do have comes pretty quickly. Mine easily stretch out in a day or two. I find this makes me all the more comfortable with regular washing.

^good to hear, mine arrived! I concur with Bobbo, the waist seems more snug than the 50s. I'm glad I sized up to a 32. Jeans are currently in the washer on a hot wash and will receive a hot tumble dry. Love the feel of the denim super soft even raw and a small amount of nep.

Glad they made it! @nycsurfer530

The softness is out of control- These things feel like dang pajama pants. I've only worn them one day!

I told myself not to, but this place tempted me, and I went to check out TCB 60s. Lovely blue hue on the denim.

I tried on size 32, which was too big everywhere, and size 30 was snug in waist but otherwise good fit. For some reason I thought TCB denim was all one washed, so at the time I didn't ask if that was the case. I float around the 32 inch waist mark, so for me to fit in tag size 30, I am assuming I tried on the non-wash version. Would this sound correct?

For a waist 32, does anyone know what tag size I should be looking at for the one washed version?

Hey volvo or anyone, is there an ETA on those 701s?

Mid July, I'm going to get a pair for the wife. It's a new sanforized denim, talon zip as the original. Inoue still doesn't have a sizing chart for it.

Sounds good mate thanks!  Also do you know if it's based on a specific year?

Looks very good @nycsurfer530! What do you think about the back rise compared to your 50s? Especially in terms of comfort...

Living in the United States, which is the best place to order TCB products from? Directly or someone like Denimo?

I like a longer rise so I'm a bit biased and will say the 50s are more comfortable. But I'm loving the 60s right now...

Either are fine to order from and I've ordered from both without any issue. I always love supporting Inoue directly though. He is also super easy to order from just send him an email with the desired model, size, and your paypal info and he'll send you an invoice.

The Shop Vancouver is where I like to go to try on all of my TCB stuff and Ive bought a few TCB pieces there. Also.. the US dollar goes very far up here in Canada so it might be worth looking into

Thanks for the help guys, I sent Inoue an email and he got back to me right away with an invoice. I paid before I went to sleep and woke up to tracking number.  That's some crazy fast service.

i would love to support the shop vancouver but it's just much cheaper to order from hajime himself.

 

just got the 30's jacket.  i got a size 40 and it's huge and i did ask for a one wash version but they sent a raw version.  some heavy duty boiling and tumble drying coming up for maximum shrinkage. 

 

do any of you guys actually adjust the back cinch at the back?  or do you guy just pull it just tight enough so the cinch sits flush against the fabric?

I picked up the carpenter pants in denim and a 40s denim hat! I'm super excited to break them on the job. I'm an electrician so they will definitely get some abuse. I wanted something lighter weight and looser leg for the summer. I couldn't wait for the 1920s contest to start to get my first TCB pieces.

^ great fit, happy to see it worked out fine for yourself, and the 50s is one of the best fabrics I've seen so far, you'll enjoy it I'm sure.

Great fit, Blaewen! Congrats. I'm unfortunately too big/tall for the boys jacket - if it only came in sz large!

Don't worry mate, mine shrank a ton from a 40 degree machine wash! 

Didn't need to adjust my cinch on this one, but I usually adjust it to sit flush against the fabric.

      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:
