Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

Recommended Posts

Merry Christmas everyone, gave my pair another monthly wash and plenty of time on the radiator. Though they pale in comparison to other contestant’s fades, this is really good for me and compared to my other jeans (most look fresh even though I’ve owned them for years)

Thank you! Very much looking forward to a break from getting tattooed. It hurts! Haha. It's also a deeply satisfying feeling to view the complete suit and reflect on the 18-year journey I took to get here. Where are you located? Europe somewhere, right? If I'm ever fortunate enough to be traveling through, I will have to arrange something with you for a little denim nerd souvenir tattoo.

@Jared_Lee  that would be cool to do. You need swing by Groningen in the Netherlands . You can sit on my bech. I clear it out from the youngster hip kids, they can show some respect to the bodysuit.

i,ve been getting tattooed for over 30 yrs, and the last yrs I look for easy access and max2 hours of work. Almost there with the suit too

Denim updates, both fit and fabric. TCB has these spurts to its fabric aging. Six month and one year tend to mark a rapid progression in tonal shift and wear for me, both in the '50s and these S40s. Lovely jeans all around.

Thanks, y'all. All credit due to TCB for making damn fine jeans and @volvo240thebest for organizing and motivating these contests. I just get the pleasure of living in them for the duration of the contests. For all the glorious fades in this contest, I do miss the more blog-style updates of past contests where it felt more like we were all sharing the lives lived in the jeans throughout the contest as much as we were flexing fades. Things change though and I certainly can't complain about how many folks have seen this contest through and presented so many beautiful examples not only of how well these jeans wear, but also how differently they wear depending on the wearer.

Didn’t know that was a thing. Sounds very cool. I’ll try and do that from here on with future updates.
