I'd love to join, but the measurements chart compared to my other jeans would feel like clown trousers, will be good to watch from the sides I guess :cool:

Finally got my order in for a full tux. Ended up going with 36 OW for the jeans as that's what I know from my 50's even though they're a tad bigger in the waist than I'd like. The reasoning being that 34 probably would be too slim overall and I can always shrink them fuckers a bit, going the other way is harder.

Really looking forward to this and good to see some fellow danes @Facini and @YossarianRaw.

Hi Volvo - nope, not ordered yet. Need to close my eyes and pick between 32 and 33.

I will do.

And thanks for all your work making this happen :)

I'm lucky 79! I just placed my order. I'm going 38 x 30 one wash to take all the fuss away and just be able to get down to business. 38 is what my jeans usually end up stretching too and being at home for 3 months has taken its toll so I needed to size up.

I've been wanting some loose fit jeans for awhile and happy I'm able to take place in another contest. 

Hopefully I can participate more than I did in the Eternal contest, my brief stint with the roy x cone, and finally the TCB 1920s. Sadly I outgrew every pair hahah.

About the sizing, the waist is expected to stretch back to raw measurements right? I measured the pairs I wear now which are FC 1101 and Sugarcane 66 and the waist lined up parallel are 18 inches across (size 34), which is the raw measurement of size 34 for the contest jeans.

Another question, the rise for one wash size 34 is 33cm. I checked the TCB 50s in the Denimio and the rise for the same size is only 29cm. I thought 50s jeans should be more loose than 40s jeans? Or is it that the 50s are lower rise but looser shape?

the waist is NOT expected to stretch back to raw. There is a bit of stretch but please do yourself a favor and size according to the one wash chart.
If you're aiming for a 18 inch waist 36 is your size.
As for the rise, the S40s and 50s cuts are similar but the S40s have a higher rise.

I went on the list early on, but just confirming my order - I went for 33 raw in the jeans (same as my 50s, which post-stretch fit perfectly without a belt) and 42 in the jacket.

Dude, unless you execute a complete about-face within two posts, it's not sufu-approved :P

finally submitted my order as well; went with a size 31 one wash; perhaps a bit roomier then I'm used to but I like the change from my usual fits.

I'll be grabbing the jacket in August as well

Just moved away from there :tongue: but let’s do that.

 

anyway, I ended up sizing one up from my 32 50s which are great, but just a tad too tight. Ordered Raw and hopefully they’ll be spot on uncuffed!

I love Aarhus, have fond memories of playing for the local folk festival a couple of times back about ten years ago.
