Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

Recommended Posts

I regret to inform you guys that I seem to have lost my contest pair. I guess that's what I get for wearing shorts all summer.

Anyone catch up with @volvo240thebest recently?

he was last sighted wearing loafers, white jeans and a madras shirt in a faraway waywt thread ...

perhaps he shall return on a vovlo-esque chariot of fire pulled by a divine horde of denim clad kittens bedecked in s40s sick fades [with the sparks of multiple dremels in the background ... ]

Beautiful jeans, what fantastic color and texture this 40s fabric has.

#109 with an update. I finally decided to stop being lazy and get some decent pictures outside. This are due for a wash and dry this weekend. So far they have made 25 trips through the washer and dryer.

Hope you're all well. Sorry for my absence; especially sorry for being a chino guy due to new profession, plus I've been two-timing my 40s with some natural indigo 1880s.

But now the nights are colder I'm back with this lovely, much heavier fabric.Just machine washed them; they marble bigtime when washed right side out I notice . Apols for weird camera angle favoured by nipper who now takes photos rather than being the subject.

^ not long for this world, if mine's anything to go by – once it had torn, it pulled away from the stitching like wet cardboard next wash :mellow:

^same thought. Had the same thing happen on an old pair of sdas, missing the patch has made them half a size larger since it shrunk and hardened that much :D

Hello everyone! here's a little update... the first 2 pictures are before washing and the next 2 are after the wash. I also had to repair a couple of holes on the knee, thigh and back pocket!

A bat shat on me the other day while walking my dog 

This deserves some kind of award when the competition is judged. Most of us make do with bird shit, but @Hopethisoneisnttaken prefers bat shit!

Hahaha. I actually get bird shit on my clothes quite a lot but that’s a different story. 
 

Egyptian fruit bats are very common where I live, and there are a few colonies living on the trees down our street. My car usually suffers from their shit a lot more than my clothes with them being nocturnal and all, but I guess shit happens?
