@MJF9love that color. How long have you had them and how many washes?

@nycsurfer530 got them in February this year. Yeah I agree with you and @volvo240thebest - thanks - those blue hues are coming through nicely on the photos. They had a machine wash when I got them (and possibly a cold soak first, can't recall atm) but no wash since then. I have quite a few pairs on the go at once so it's been pretty steady wear only. These will be slowly slowly for me. I reckon when the competition crew get wearing them hard, there'll be some awesome blue on show!

Hey guys, I'm pretty much a brand new Superfuture user, but I'm a long-time TCB stalker and I'm thinking about finally pulling the trigger on a pair of the 50s jeans. I'm looking at the measurements on Denimio (which appear to be the same for the one wash and raw) and I'm tryna figure out which size to get. I'm looking for a snug top-block and I'm usually a 30 or 29 in regular Levi's 501 stf. A true 30 inch waist with such a high rise is a little too big for me, but again, I can't tell which measurements are accurate here. I think a true 29 -29.5 waist would probably work best.

Is there a better resource out there? I don't want to make you guys do the legwork.

AND AGAIN, sorry I'm sure this crap gets asked all the time. Just tryna join the TCB club, ya feel?

Hey I'm a 36 both on standard 501 stf's and tcb 50s. The stf's (2007/2008 made in Mexico pair) are just a smidgen bigger in the waist. A 30 will shrink to 29,5 circa and then stretch back. Stay away from the one wash version as the industrial washing regimen shrinks them so much that sometimes it's hard to size them properly. For reference my natural waist is 36,5 circa and the 36 fit well, without the need of a belt.

Hope it helps, and welcome aboard.

If you need a hem better buy from tcb as the better chainstitch ever will come free of charge. Denimio charges 25 usd for a hem.

buy them from direct from TCB like volvo said. my experience has been that they are just a touch over sized. My 32s were 32.5"  raw - measured with the top block aligned the Blue in Green way. I think it is best to order your measured size or one size down. the fabric is very stretchy and you have plenty of room in the rise and thigh.

edit : I think you're probably right in getting a 29.

@Broark As long as Inoue doesn't come out with a model from the 40s at the end of the 20s contest

Taking this here from the OOE thread.

Hell yes! The contest 20s are my first pair of TCB but now that I have a taste ;) Especially since the LVC 47 is a bit lackluster in terms of denim I'd buy the shit out of a TCB '47, especially if he would do arcs (even if it maybe would have to be a custom order).

Oh, but taking 18 months to release them would be nice, I need another pair of jeans like I need a hole in the head right now ^^

Interesting, I always thought the 40s version would be a wartime model but you're right, it's a really good late 40s repro that we need.

I think Inoue could make a mean wartime repro and I know he'd love to make one, but he still hadn't find an original pair that he could buy or borrow long enough to copy it. A 47 should be a bit more slender, apart from the different bells and whistles?

Yeah, "slim-straight" fit and details like arcs not painted any longer and rivets are back. Well he has over a year now to find something for his archives to reproduce :D

Well for the price of a pair of CSF you could get two pairs of tcb 40s, so to me they're almost different kind of products...

That's true of course. Was just referring to "we need a good 40s repro"

I didn’t know they could look this slim either... they are a size 29 and I think they may be stacking up to being my favorite pair of pants!

Lotta love for the TCB 50s!

Please forgive the basic question, but what size would you recommend if I'm a 33 or 34 in Fullcount 1101 and 34 in Warehouse 800?

Thanks.

Stay 34. I have 30 in 1101 and 31 in 800 with a 31 in 50s

Those 50’s are looking nice. Might be what I’m looking for. I’m a 33 in sugar cane 47’s should i take the same size?

i recall TCB 50's shrinking from tag vs. SC which shrink to tag.  Of course I could be full of shit and not remembering correctly.  My 50s contest tagged size 35 measure out to about a 32 right out of wash/dry.  

 

edit** i might be mixing Ooe with TCB, so ignore me.

If any doubt- measure your natural waist and purchase that size. TCB shrinks to tag sized

I pretty much went to my true waist (~29) and also sized down from my 60’s (30’s). These fit perfectly without a belt.

Super nice fit Hendsch. I think these look quite slim because of the smaller size.

I wear the same size in tcb 50s and Sugarcane 47, 36. The canes are just a touch bigger in the waist. I have no fullcount but from charts and what I've read I would get a 35 in those.

sorry for the wonky lighting.

If the 50s fit me like this, I probably would have no reason to buy other jeans, ever.

This is the perfect fit to me

i dont recall my 50s raw size, but they get to around tag size once they are washed and worn / stretched out.

i would def say they are trimmer than many of my other cuts, but def. the 36 did not shrink and stay to anything like 34   

as remember it, earlier in the thread, upon request; erk compared his 50s to his lvc 55s and the lvc are slightly over tag size, and the tcb are slightly under tag

      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:
