I'm going to go the Bartleby rooute this time, only a hot soak before wearing the jeans, no wash, to see if I can maximize the crunchiness/whiskers/etc/etc...

Is there a tracking number list? I have no idea how to check where my pair is or what's happening with them.

so glad to see more

pants receptions

cats

tats

tuxes

soakings

bromancings!

a celebratory fit pic in honour... [40 degree washes in a month or two will remove the extra length, lets see what havoc that plays with the fade locations, but enjoying extra bagginess and dark shading denim for now]

I had forgotten how soft and comfy the jeans were already after the initial wash. Very happy to get this started again and see how easy Karl will win it.

Not too tight: Can't speak for the rest but I didn't have a tracking number. 

 

Edit: here are two pics from a night of indigo dyeing about a week ago. My friend Johan holds courses in dyeing and shibori. Check out moniker @dyeforindigo on Instagram if you want to see more fun stuff.

as soon as I saw this I thought this was you soaking yours... I know I had some very blue water but this tops it all...

Haha, that would have been crazy. But we were only dyeing shirts and bandanas that night.

would be wise to ask for tracking number if everybody already received theirs.

Did ask Inoue a while back - did not get a reply...

since my mobile number was on the address EMS Russia texted me once the package entered Russian territory.

did run my tuxedo through the washer yesterday night - pulled inside out, standard washing and spin at 50C with no detergent, 1hr hot dryer afterwards.

came out almost dry and pretty crumbled - leather patches made it out OK - put it on the clothing rack overnight  - jeans and jacket shrunk quite a lot - jacket is now tight, but should be manageable I hope.

flying to Berlin for the weekend - planning to sport the tuxedo tomorrow for the first time, together with TCB's RanchMan...

jeans soaked, and line dried. love them, the arcs have somewhat of a manga vibe to them. I like it, although that's a touch that detracts from the overall repro vibe of the jeans. I'm going to keep them.
the shorter inseam worked great, finally I can rock a single cuff. pit fics later on today!
to me the 20s are the best cut made by tcb so far, better than 50s and 60s.

TO THOSE IN NEED OF TRACKING ID'S, hit me up via PM

@bartlebyyphonics my thoughts on 50s vs 20s fabric. 50s is definitely slubbier, however the 20s, while softer and lighter, have a grainier texture almost like a soft sand paper (an oxymoron I know). Looking forward to everyone getting their jeans back and this thread returning to full glory

WOOOOO WEEEE!!! I took off work today because I'm getting tattooed later and I'm lazy but it paid off because the post woman just delivered my pair!!!!!! 

I'm about to throw them in for a hot rinse with no spin and then hang dry for maximum crunchiness hopefully! I gotta get my hands on some of that liquid starch.

you all may aware from my Instagram rambles that I consider myself more of a cheap beer connoisseur than a craft beer lover. Although when craft beer comes as a present from a pants friend I can make an exception haha. Thanks @mariano_vittori

Some goodies there. Oude Gueuze is definitely an acquired taste. I once described it as like beer with tomato juice and battery acid in. In a good way. Still waiting for my pair to return ....

Also ran into my amazing postman Paul today and he informed me he’s getting a new route next Friday. So that’s what I get for gloating about how awesome he is.
