Hey volvo, I know it's a bit quiet over there at the moment but why don't you spread the contest word on Denimbro?

I'll send Mark a message and see if he's fine with that. I just feel weird to advertise something happening here on "his" board without asking.

Hey @volvo240thebest, will these come one-washed or unwashed? Also, would it be best contacting TCB's Instagram in regards to back rise measurements or is there a better avenue? I'm interested, and am thinking of either the size 30 or 31...

sorry I didn't see the whole question here. The jeans can be ordered either raw or one wash. I'd go raw and just tell Inoue which inseam length you want after wash. This way you can fiddle with washing (first wash at lower temperatures and then if needed higher temperatures) in case you need to keep the jeans not shrunken to the max potential.

SUCH A GOOD CALL!! :) how can we make these into shirts? I know there's dozens of websites in screen images on shirts but I'm also assuming someone on this board has access to a more legit shirt maker ;)

I can screen and/or discharge print the patch onto shirts if I can get a high-res copy of the image (or if it's ok for me to re-draw it)!

 

Also really tempted to enter this contest—tried on the 20s at The Shop last week and loved how they fit...

I'm all for it- I would assume its comes down to the original patch designer and/or Inoue

Is it possible to request for no suspender buttons? If so... I am very much intrigued.

While I'm talking myself into this I pulled some images of the 20's from the TCB website. I hope that's alright by you guys. ^_^

Anyone planning to make this their DWC pair as well? I guess you could start wearing your '20s in October since you're allowed to have a pair of jeans at 30 days of wear by the start of the DWC. I probably won't do that since I work at a Levi's store here in Australia, so I'll get more wear out of, say, a new pair of '76 501s.

I'm really quite interested in getting a pair of these even if it's just to wear occasionally because of the special leather patch and arcs, but I'd probably remove the suspender buttons. Since I have worn a pair of '33 501s in the past, I find the combination of suspender buttons and a belt to be a bit uncomfortable for my liking (it's not unbearable, but not preferable)... I may end up sewing buttons on the inside of the waistband like you sometimes see with trousers. Also @volvo240thebest, thanks for the clarification about the one-washed/unwashed - I will most likely go with the raw then nuke them in my washing machine. While I'm typing this, I have convinced myself to get a pair, so sign me up! =P

Did you help the design for the patch volvo?

the patch is great - will certainly make an excellent T given a decent base quality. how about a white print on a blue body?

as for the jeans - I will go with the raw option in size W32 or W33 in standard length. W32 has been my preferred width for the 50's and 60's cuts, but I need to check if I have gotten fatter recently...

The patch was designed by the wife of one of my best friends. I work with her very often for concert posters and CD design. She's great.

I gave her some basic infos (do a Levi's inspired patch, and 'every pair not guaranteed') and she did everything else including drawing the cats. She also used some 20s inspired fonts. The initial design had a nut cracker slim tapered Jean silhouette, then we changed to a loose fit and if you look into the image you'll see the Jean has even suspender buttons.

Re t shirt design, let's do it.

I think the most reasonable thing would be asking to Inoue and Ed/Regiment store first, since they're working on this and investing a bit to cover the prizes as well.if they don't want to do it then I'd find the Chicote way very desirable, especially if it's a discharge print... White on blue or blue in white it'd make me happy. I don't wear black so black print or black t shirt is a no go for me.

@chicote Ill let you know once I hear back from Inoue and Ed about t shirts. I have high res illustrator/pdf/jpeg files of the patch.

I'm in the middle of one of the most amusing Google translate farces I've experienced with Inoue so far, regarding t shirts! I have no clue what he's saying, very enjoyable!

Ivə gathered somehow that he has a friends factory which make good t shirts but their standard numbers for production are 120 pieces minimum. He's going to ask how much is going to cost for about 40 t shirts.
