Thanks again to everyone that expressed interest in a world tour, and to anyone else who might be interested, let me know! There's still room. These are a tag size 30, but fit like a 31 standard tapered in most brands.
Just mailed the jeans to Holio Cornholio in the UK. After him, it will either head to louisbosco in Australia or to the North America contingent. If anyone in Europe is interested, might be best to speak up quickly so the pair can stay in that hemisphere a little while longer.
Here is the original interest thread, including details on the fit plus some pictures, as well as links with details on the model and Roy's page about the denim.
Measurements at the start of the journey:
Roy BB1002, tag size 30
Inseam: 33.75" (original)
Front rise: 11"
Back rise: 15-15.25"
Current participant list:
Holio Cornholio (UK)
louisbosco (I dunno, frankly, he seems to be everywhere - EDIT: Perth, apparently)
chicote (west Canada)
wolfofthesea (west Canada)
Hendsch (west US)
guthriegking (west US)
andrewrose (mountain US)
unorthodox (southeast US)
ReverendGlasseye (central US)

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:
Paul T (UK)
Red Dragon (Indonesia)
NYC surfer (USA)
Holio Cornolio (UK)
The roster is full for now, although it won't hurt having a few subs!
The original and what we're looking forward to:
The news has broken out...
Mr. Hayashi-san founder and ex-owner of denime has started a new brand called RESOLUTE.
THis is my Girlfriend's (she's jap) translation summary of this article... released in japan...
denime was becoming very stricting for hayashi-san
he couldnt make what he wanted with denime
he didnt want to make jeans for fashion
he has spirit of workman and made weekly trips to his factories...
He really cares about the denim, and the new denim is hairy in a different way in comparison to all the other brands out there.
he wanted to make 'things'' that would cost the same no matter how long the time passes
he is tryin to make 100 mil yen selling in 3 years.
And most importantly!! he is using his old dyeing method!! we are gonna see some wick fades similar to the old denimes very soon!
the new jeans will be priced at 22,000yen.
