Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

Recommended Posts

Final update - they are in need of a repair and did not get as much wear as I would have liked (thank you, permanent home office), but still quite happy with their state

I got a confirmation @Hopethisoneisnttaken and did ask! Ryo got back to me on IG, and said he’s had a ton of emails and is trying to go through them all.

So do we post the final submission here? Someone mentioned there might be a fresh thread dedicated to that purpose.

Here we go beautiful people!

final submission rules:

Picture rules: Maximum 8 pictures
Picture submittance deadline: 14th March

Please send the pictures to [email protected]
Title: TCB WW2 fade contest/ your contestant number and your nickname


How to judge: Each TCB member decides their 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.
1st place-3 points
2nd place-2 points
3rd place-1 points
The person who gets the most point wins.

As you all know, the contest had lived a life of its own on multiple platforms, due to language barrier many JP didn't manage to create an account on sufu.
Ryo would like to have all photos also to make a tcb contest gallery on Tcb website.

I guess it doesn't hurt if we want to make a final submission thread here on sufu for the sake of posterity, but as I wrote above the evaluation and official submission will have to be made by email.

Thanks bartlebyyphonics! Not many washes. Three or four. 

There were a few weeks when it was too hot for jeans so they weren't worn continuously. As much as possible though. 

I expected the pocket stitching to wear off quickly. I'm surprised it's held on this long.

Regarding the dusty blue at the hems, you're quite right. It's a dust bowl here much of the year & any walking in the field kicks it up. It sticks like hell & gentle washing doesn't get it out.

I'm actually looking forward to giving them a thorough wash maybe with oxyclean & a scrubbing brush.

Happy to have you cross the finish line with us despite the trials and tribulations @Spiraltoy. Also happy to hear you're on the mend. If that's an overstatement of fact, then happy to hear from you and that you're still here with opportunity to find better days. Respect.

good to see more pairs crossing the finish line

@Spiraltoy ; sorry to hear your tribulations; divorce with children is a particular circle of hell: to be taken one day at a time with an eye to the future! my thoughts are with you!

yup: my minimal sleuthing makes me think those are this gentleman (posted on the tcb ig...) - the man who washes our jawns...

a man who rivals @Double 0 Soul's welly-steez...
