Does anyone have the 50s and 20s size charts for ours to hand?

as a general rule of thumb if you were happy with the 50s fit go with the same size.
20s are a bit more loose than 50s and s40s.
I wear the same size 36 on all tcb cuts I have (20s, 50s, 60s) but I can confirm that I could have sized down one (ideally to 35) on the 20s

Are you still a 32?

50s chart https://tcbjeans.myshopify.com/products/tcb-50s-jeans-one-wash
beware: refer only to the 360°waist, the other waist measurement is wrong. I told Ryo but probably these days he's too busy replying to sizing questions!
 

20s chart https://tcbjeans.myshopify.com/products/tcb-20s-jeans-one-wash
measurements don't tell anyway that 20s are wider in the hips and seat. Despite the waist is the same they feel bigger

All in for the fun, if not the win, on jeans in 36 and a jacket in 44.  Thanks to Volvo, Ryo, and Hajime for making this happen.

I don't know what number I'll be assigned, but if Ed could do the math on it, that would be great.

Will the jacket have the contest patch as well? I'm definitely going to order the jeans but not sure if I'll be able to swing the jacket as well. I have some things for sale on eBay that will hopefully sell and give me the funds to get both. But worst case scenario I could always order the jacket later when I'm back to work and can afford it.

the jacket will have the contest patch yes, and yes you can always order that later on, the only difference with the jacket will be the patch. take it easy!

How much stretch should we expect in the waist? Thinking of getting a pair for my 13-yr old son and considering size 30 or 31 (he's currently wearing jeans that have a 37cm waist)... I expect he's going to grow quite a bit during the contest (he's better...) He'll probably crush us wrt fades & evo.

Just received this from Ryo @TCBINOUE

re hemming and shrinkage on my raw pair. Might help a little with peoples decisions:

'Rigid/Post wash calculation is okay i guess.

the shrinkage rate is 92% so your desired length post wash: 82cm / 0.92

→89.1 is how we calculate but adding some buffer might be the better option 

so we'll hem the jeans at 89.5cm'

 

I also asked for a RAW jacket which they said they can do, However; it can't be exchanged if it's the wrong size.

Lamentably, I’m out of the contest... if it don’t fit, don’t force it, let it happen naturally

I am, however, very happy to confirm my vicarious entry...

I’m posting, she's wearing - checked and all good with Volvo

Never mind Dad fades… ever seen Mum fades bro?

Looking forward to the shenanigans - game on!
