New Contest Suggestions

Recommended Posts

Right everyone, stop spamming the TCB 20s contest thread with your miscellaneous suggestions for a new contest and dump them in here instead.

I’m not organising anything by the way and neither is anyone else until and unless they state otherwise, hopefully on here. In short, therefore, manage your expectations!

Thats the aggressive, official stuff over with so please feel free to fire away...

So far it seems like we could take this two directions: get a special pair made by whoever we decide (and is willing to make them for us), or wear existing jeans we already own.
Y'all are all well aware that I'm always down for a new pair, but I also see the merit in just throwing in a pair that I/we already own.

So far for the new jeans ideas we have the following as potential options. These are what have been thrown out, but I'm happy to edit this post with more suggestions.
Sounds like we're leaning towards a 40's WWII detailed jean thus far from one of the following.
Warehouse.
Ooe Yofukuten.
Roy.
Freewheelers.
Resolute.
Tender.
Denimbridge.
Sugar Cane.

We've also got to consider the viability of these makers wanting to make a special pair for us. So that's something to consider as well.
Regarding cut, I think we're mostly looking at something looser/straight legged so far.
Personally I'd love to do something where we could include a shirt as well as a pair of jeans, maybe a chambray or something that's easily wearable year round.

While I'm here, I can edit this post to include a headcount so we have an idea on quantity.

While I'd love a Resolute contest I am currently in a contest (GBG001) and it doesn't make sense for me to join another one anytime soon.

My gut feeling is that this is all very preliminary and as such, unlikely to begin until the current GBG one ends.

I'm (carefully) interested. I have a pair of Warehouse I haven't worn and could use in the contest, not to mention a pair of SDA and another one of MFSC I have worn less than 5 times. I'm not enthusiastic about buying yet another pair, but you wouldn't need to twist my arm very hard if it is a loose / straight cut. I'm most interested in Tender and Ooe, but flexible.

Just to expand on the idea, there was also mention of a possible triple-pleat jacket contest and personally I would be interested in a denim shirt contest. A chambray contest would be fun, especially if we find a nice *indigo* chambray, which is not that easy to find.

I am down for either an SDA (owned an unworn pair) or Warehouse (still have not owned one yet) 

Tender might be intriguing, definitely possible to ask William to make a special pair for a contest through this forum.

quite.

as stated before; my hope would be for a strict vintage 40s cut - my strongest interests would be in the fw 601xx '47 or the warehouse '46 (because of new denim)...

I know elsewhere bobbo has hinted at a wwII denimba possibility... 

(competition wise, having gone through 50s, 20s and now doing 60s cuts... surely a palette cleansing 40s is in order?)

Similar to bartle, I’m game for a 40s fit and specifically a warehouse or freewheelers Jean. Excited for new from Bobbo regarding warehouse potential!!

I'm a potential depending but will be an interested observer anyway.  Preference is a pick your own jeans (have a Canes M-series and Lot 147 ready to go).  However my arm could be twisted for a decent rise, voluminous fit as per the options above - especially if replete with contest specific features.  Look forward to hearing how WH, Denimba and Roy conversations go.

I think it might be worthwhile to mention that if we do a "pick your own jeans" kinda contest it might be harder to find a store/brand willing to put up with prizes. Making one order of the same model from a singular store, like the Ooe, TCB and Denimba contest makes it easier to get the stores on board since they already make some money from it. Not against it personally, but good to know if we go down that route.

Personally I want to do a 40's cut this time. Preferably WWII-version. Don't think that's ever been done? 

I'm game for most ideas that has been mentioned but it would be a lot of fun if Warehouse felt like doing something a little special.

As far as Jackets go, I'm  interested in a TCB Triple Pleat competition.

Or a denim Jacket comp in general - would like to further justify a Mister Freedom Ranch Blouse.

I didn't even think of a prize. Couldn't care less, to be honest, but it's a valid point.

Warehouse ww2 would be super sweet.

Several of the proposed makers interest me, though it sounds like I might be the outlier in preferring a slimmer cut.

A shirt or jacket contest would be fun.

I'd like to hear from @rodeo bill whether he would have the bandwidth to do something with us, at least in terms of custom details (I for one do not care that much about a prize). The advantage of Tender is the ease of communication and the fact that there are existing slimmer & looser cuts... It doesn't preclude anything, but if Bill tells us he does not have the bandwidth, we shouldn't spend more time debating it. I'd love it if he could, personally...

I'm down for a 40s repro contest be it ww2, 46 or 47. Warehouse or freewheelers would be nice or maybe more obscure brand like fob factory will be interesting. And maybe throw 40s lee style repro into the mix.

'40s contest seems to be the most popular! That would also be my vote although I'm unsure whether I'd participate. I suffer from severe commitment issues when it comes to wearing one pair of jeans haha I think I've bowed out of every comp so far :P

I'm just not sure how we would coordinate with a brand like Freewheelers or Warehouse...

Through a dealer.

My preference (FWIW) is a Warehouse WWII cut in their (13.5oz?) Duck Digger denim.
