Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

Recommended Posts

Quick check in to enquire on patch destruction? Following my tcb20s disappearing patch, I've liberally doused my patch in moisturiser and leather creme prior to washing, and it's still toast after 3 washes.

havent used a dryer. Only washed at 40.

its going to fall apart by wash 6.

Mine is totally fine. I guess it depends by the washing machine used.

Have you tried conditioning it post-wash? Since you're basically washing out any fat and oil moisturising the patch while washing the jeans. Conditioned mine once or twice at the beginning of the contest post-wash and it's been holding up fine ever since with a few 60°C and 40°C washes and the occasional trip through the dryer.

Enjoying my vices. You can hardly tell but I am wearing the TCBs. Playing the long game with these for sure.

for the best fit I would measure you current pair and order by that. Keep in mind that the rise on the TCB 40's is much, much higher then your current jeans.
Also, the 40s jeans that are sold now are no longer the contest jeans.

Thanks! That’s why i’m asking, cause i would love a higher rise, but i don’t have any experience with that and even if there was no lockdown there isn’t any shop where i could try them on..

Those are not just "higher rise". They are some of the highest rise you could find around. They're the rise for which all other rises are low rises. They're the rise to which all high rise look up to. They're the highest, risest ever.

@goodrain I already gave it a hot wash and dry. I expect it to fit better as the denim softens. It will be my winter jacket. I already have a denim shirt that I use as a jacket over t-shirts.

@JRendon02 it actually looks pretty good except that the sleeves are too long. If you cuffed it one more time that should probably take care of it. Or you can cuff it like this guy

Figured I’d check in even tho not much is going on with them since pants wearing went from every day to optional. No 21, realistically about two months of wear
