It's always great when foxy shares his tailoring knowledge with us. Thank you sir :)

I don’t always know what the intention was, but I can share the tweaks that I was taught during my apprenticeship years and things I came across over many years in the business...

Foxy2, thanks for input.  By the way, I just soaked the TCB 50's jeans and the pocket ripples are pretty much gone.  Will try to get some fit pics up at some point.  I now understand what others have said -- the 50's fit beautifully.  Excellent top block -- very comfortable but body conforming, with a rise that's not too high or too low.

I confess to also not being able to resist the 50's jacket (44 raw)  Really nice, especially with Inoue shortening the sleeves just a bit.

Yes my girlfriend is wearing the chambray version (very very nice) and Hajime and me are wearing the 30 hats. Can't recommend it enough! I compared it to Real mccoys and a couple others Japanese brand and TCB was my favorite.

yet another interview with Inoue. Question and answers seem to be the very same of all the other interviews, this one perhaps has been translated but a bit more of common sense though!

Absolutely. LVC use nylon tab, original and TCB is rayon. It's beautiful on the originals how it scrunches and folds up.

(but there is constructional fault on TCB to make up for superior red tab... double stitching on yoke lines up, like prewar jeans, when it should be offset or staggered).

interesting they really did change to nylon. My guess is so you can read their name better. marketing garbage. 

yeah, the yoke is the only thing that bothers me on the 50s. don't really get it. the 20s is offset right?

I’m really interested in the 505 preshrunk. Can anyone with the 50s and then 505s tell me how they compare to each other fitwise?

I was just going to order what size id take in the 50s (32) but looking at the shop Vancouver’s website they are recommending to size up.

I'd go with my regular size on the 50's - not sure what your or their regular size is, but mine is mostly 1 down from "real" size.

I measure 33-34 and most W32 jeans measure 84-86 raw - they will shrink and stretch out...

Insane puckering! Have they seen som dryer action?

Hi 

I took advantage of the Black Friday sales at Denimio and purchased the TCB 50s jean jacket size 46. It’s raw so it needs to have hot soak. 

The fit is good if a little “boxy” but that might due to it being still rigid. Does anyone else have this jacket and how long did you soak or wash it and how much shrinkage did you experience?

Thanks,

Great fit mate. I don't own it myself but there's plenty of posts about the shrinkage if you just search in the thread.

indeed: one hot soak, one wash, 15 mins or so drying in industrial machine.

20s contest thread should show many degrees of puckering up!

(aho's post, p.34 gives an insight into the garment gone through quite a few wash-dry cycles)

Chest: 46 in.

Length: 26 in. (measured from bottom of the collar)
Sleeves: 26.5 in. 

Here's the original post wash measurements of my custom length 50's jacket, I've washed it a few times since then so not sure how those compare to now.
I could take some current measurements if you're interested.

Pre wash measurements:

Chest (pit to pit) is 23.5

Shoulders is 22

length (from the bottom of the collar) is 28

Sleeves 28

@Broark did you machine wash at 40 or just a hot soak for an hour?

@Toegun I threw mine in the washing machine, twice I think looking back at the post.

Ok, so warm wash and left overnight next to a dehumidifier, which may have been a mistake as now it’s twice as rigid but I think it has tighten up in all the right places. 

Sorry for the crappy pics, I was late going out already:E56DB77E-C442-4340-8D6E-4EAC6AFCE0CB.thumb.jpeg.59fe7a54a8e25412d7a2f35209eb0c76.jpeg0D3C8F77-CC35-4F51-BA15-7C34496449C1.thumb.jpeg.fedcca9a6115d44542dcbf69ddf52aed.jpeg

@volvo240thebest thanks mate, I’m really looking forward to wearing it and glad it didn’t shrink tooooo much.

Actually your pics were the inspiration for me getting it, that and the price! So thank you.

I just ordered the TCB 50's on Denimio using some points and taking advantage of the Black Friday sale. I requested them hemmed but I'm wondering if the roping will be as glorious as the original. Any thoughts? Can't seem to wait for them to come in first haha.

      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:
