quick question for any ranchman owners , does the torso taper down much from the chest ? i love my flathead western ( forget the model number , its the sawtooth repro ) but it tapers quite a bit 

 

edit . had a look at some sizing charts and the sizing is a bit weird ... 112cm on a 38 chest ?? i remember there was a lot of sizing errors when it was released

Hi mate! I sold mine so can't help out with the tapering q. 

But the sizing is because Inoue measures the circumference on the inside of the fabric, which we didn't know back then. I got a 36 back then because of it, later on I tried on a 40 when I visited TCB and the fit was as it should have been.

@Flash I have a 42 in both the denim and chambray. They both have around a 22.75" chest and taper down to about 20.5" in the waist. If I remember correctly, I saved those measurements after a hot wash and hot dry. They definitely feel slimmer than the chest measurements would lead you to believe which I think has a lot to do with the high and tight arm holes.

Yeah all true for comparison you should measure the 360 P2P of one of your shirts. And yeah it tapers a bit.

Feels smaller that what the measurements lead to think because the front and rear panel don't coincide, hence why Inoue measures the chest 360 i think.

On another note I'm pretty tempted to get a pair of tcb baker pants just released. The front rise is totally massive though 39 cm for the xxxl which is a 36.

Could anyone with a size 38 take a chest measurement ( pit to pit ) and another across the waist area ? Thanks for any help

I like the flathead shirt but i would wear it more if it was a littlle bigger all over , it measures 19 across the chest and 17.5 across the waist

How are the pockets on the TCB 50s? Are they big enough to comfortably put your hands in them?

Yeah they're just right to me, not huge like Ues jeans but definitely not small.

Ah, good. Front rise is lower than I'd like so I can scratch these off the list of viable  jean options. 

Thank you.

Yes, it's not really long, rather mid-rise. My pockets are not really long comparerd to UES, like volvo said, but they are by no means too short.

for the sake of full clarity 

and objective quantification over subjective qualification

some visual aids

just washed and dried and measured

then: some experience: not too small: certainly bigger than some lvc thimbles but smaller than my tender buckets: they work just fine

Seeing how the average temperature here lately has been 90-100, I figure the best time to wash and dry is now, especially since they shirt really stunk lately.

Thanks all for the replies! I should've made it clearer, but when I meant big pockets I was mostly talking about the pocket openings

 

My Samurais and Japan Blues have deep enough pockets. But the problem is that I can barely fit my hands in them, and I don't even have big hands! I'd like to use the front pockets more if I could, but I'm just not able to easily. So was just curious if TCB had wide front pocket openings since I've been eying the 50s for a while

The pocket are fairly accessible, I have big hands and have no problems with them at all.

not quite ready to share photos of hands sliding into indigo apertures.

I have no complaints on the matter but offer no measurable analysis of my hands.

You know what they say about guys with big hands?

his case is special - he's a musician and given his instrument of choice it actually could be seen as more of a handicap...

haha actually it's not, it's a big advantage. I can play alto flutes which require a big hand span stretch with no discomfort while some of my colleagues can't handle long playing/recording session with the big flutes.

Maynard now it's time for a line on big flutes I think....

Big flute = small penis, the inverse proportional rule applies.

      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:
