Nice fit Kaj.

Unexpectedly I had time to wander bit around Budapest this morning.

Here's some depressing bw pics for your fine perusal. Sensor is dirty...

When you guys tumble dry, do you turn the jeans inside out or not? I've turned them inside out in the past, but it ends up making "reverse folded" lines on the outseam if that makes sense, and I can't seem to iron them out.

yup, that can happen - no f...'s given!

I always used to think turning them inside out was overdoing it - until I got absolutely insane marbling on my SDA 103, and on my LVC 66 too. Some denim seems much more prone to it than others.

Nice photos Volvo!

My pair has stretched all it will in the waist and the chinch works just fine in keeping them up, don't even need to wear a belt :) I'm afraid they'll turn out too light for winter though :( Temps fell to around 3° over the weekend and it gets chilly in the 20s. It's fine for work days where I'm only outside for a cigarette's length every few hours but I won't stand around the Christkindlmarkt all evening in them I guess.

^ the glorious mysteries of thermal underwear i guess... breaking out my uniqlo x monster hunter thermals for that very reason... 

on a more historical but related note; any consensus on when denim waist overalls/jeans moved from being over-trousers that protect a 'nicer' pair into a pair of trousers in their own right? is it around 20s or more 50s?

Interesting question. Definitely gone by the 30s - women wore them as fashion-wear by then, so I suspect it was only bib overalls conventionally worn over trousers. And there were good numbers wore them as regular pants well before then, even from the late 1800s, so I suspect they were only over-trousers for some people, not all. FOr instance, Can't Bust Em's Frisko Jeens, worn by sailors, were never over-garments.

Nice pics Volvo. I visited that covered market - crazy isn't it? Who would have known there were that many versions of paprika ... ?

Maybe also a question related to the disappearance of specific jobs/professions - mining comes to mind...

also, some more fit shots from tonight:

scary indeed!!! 

this is now my autumn work uniform... (have been grinding a post overalls and lvc-44 combo until now)

i am going with the triple pleat rather vest / waistcoat bizz to cover the suspenders - but am on look out for vests for spring summer...

the boots are much worn, much loved grenson (from the pre-outsourcing days, recently resoled, at the cheaney factory)

but to increase the doppelganging madness - i also have the cheaney veldtschoen: i found at good price in sale, having snaffled them up, looked afterwards for any discussion on them online saw your blog post... and your extensive love of the veldtschoen - respect!

I'm still very pleased with the fit. Knees still look wonky but the drape is improving all over. Wide(r) cut but not sloppy looking at all IMO - pretty much what I hoped they'd be.

yeah, I looked at their shop on Etsy earlier this year when some of their belt buckles got shown around here on SuFu...

not sure what to think of the quality of their leather?

Theyre quite ok! Just as expected of any souvenir belt from that era!

Thanks for the info, Ed!
Always liked the design of the buckles, but wasn't convinced about the leather - maybe, I'll order one these days...

the buckles are reproductions and cost around $90 - with a plain (embossed) belt these are $140-150 (at this point the price is comparable to some of basic belts form Japanese denim brands) - with studs and workmanship the prices go up significantly...I understand that the belts are produced and assembled in the US.

They don't say (on the inside of the belt it's printed: Topgrain Cowhide Made In USA) - on Etsy it says they are shipping (directly?) from the US.
On their acewesternbelts website it says all belts are made in Sendai, Japan - which means "assembled" since the buckles and belts are sourced from the US.

Their international business could be handled differently than their Japan business, who knows...

I guess yours got shipped directly (Japan - Philippines makes more sense than Japan - USA - Philippines) - maybe that's what they do for custom orders?

      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:
