Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

^ If you read through some of the thread—especially towards the beginning—you'll see that most of the folks posting seem to dry their jeans by machine pretty regularly

This fabric really appears to take well to it (all of TCB's fabrics do, honestly)

Really great-looking jeans all through this last page or two—thanks to all those contributing!

Thank you for this info. Yes I am guilty of just looking at photos. ;-)

Some of the recent photos looked like they had been in a dryer at some point. For example, I seem to get better roping from the dryer.

The TCB20 pants are so incredible. I wish I had known of them when there was inventory still around.

@Pedro, I think the TCB online store has them in stock in the one-wash version.

Thanks!

Ordering a pair today.

Hey @Pedro as an fyi mine have never hit a dryer, and not sure that many pairs of the last 2 pages have: even with drip-dry tcb does monster-fire-emoji.gif roping...

...the machine-drying pairs should have hardcore 3d marbling and such...

Mine haven't seen the dryer either.  I'm trying to maintain that lovely patch.

I semi frequently dry mine. i did ti the first time for maximum shrink and most times after, it's just too convenient! plus it's definitely created killer roping and puckering all over.

I've never used a dryer on any of my jeans, ever.

These jeans seem to get lots of marbling and twisting with conventional washing.  As they're quite contrasty I wash and spin mine right way round, which exacerbates the marbling and texture.

@Paul T

Interesting. Right way round is like Right side Out? Or can you change the spin rotation of your washer?  ;-)

If so, I want one !

Lots of work lately and TCB 20's just got back from second repair. But I did find time for a wee festival with Tame Impala and The Streets to name a few. Bonus bits and scraps from the last few weeks.

Running repairs. Stitched the bottoms of the pockets too, but one of them has ripped again.

Ladoga

and what nightmarish was about it? I've been there 5 years ago and in my experience with a local guide everything goes smoothly and you see lots of magnificent scenery (also great place for fishing and being eaten by mosquitos :D).

Yup - damn autocorrect...

the lake is beautiful and big, really big.

we were told it’s just a little bit of sunny sailing and very warm - turns out that due to the size of the lake it’s open water sailing and terribly cold.

as soon as you go ashore the mites and mosquitos will eat you alive.

still - amazing scenery!
