Yikes, with Ed out, I’m #69. Will that be emblazoned on the patch?

no it won't!

we were thinking to stencil numbers on the pocket bags but still not decided either
if we ever go that way I will need your help and collaboration to track down your order no matched to your sufu account name matcher to your contest number.

Seen the numbers it may turn out in a massive headache too!

Good volvo!  I'm ok with #69 for now, but don't need it on the pocket bags or (even worse) a big 6 on one back pocket and 9 on the other!

Is anyone planning on adding a little era-appropriate flair and painting their own arcs on them?

@Graytrain I am definitely painting arcs on mine.  Since there’re more eyes on this thread now, maybe I should ask again ...  

“‘Got a question about the WW2 painted broken arcs.  I noticed variants in repro arc shapes & colors through the years.  Was there any particular [official] WW2 painted arcuate?! “

If participation is going to be only half as good as all the hype around this now, this is going to be an amazing contest. Also: Not too sad about our newest missing forum member, he had it coming for a long time.

Hi @volvo240thebest is there any chance that TCB is limiting the number of a specific size? (I tried to order the 31 one washed and it is already sold out)

I hardly doubt it's possible, they're preordering and making the contest batch as per orders.
Let me check with Ryo.
It's already very late in Japan, I guess he'll reply me tomorrow! stay tuned.

I had the same thought. I accidentally replied in the main TCB but we will see if Paul responds. I have seen that brown gold color as well as dark green and white.

Hello peeps,

Long time lurker, I am very tempted to join in.  

Any tip to choose the size ? it seems that this jean has a higher rise than the ones I own so I am not sure how applicable it is to measure my favorite pair and compare with one wash. 

Should I just remove 1" from the jean I measured ? 

Sorry for the newb question but measuring the waist for a high rise jean confuses me.

Sorry for the newb question but measuring the waist for a high rise jean confuses me.

I'd suggest to measure your natural waist where ideally the jeans are going to sit.

I copy and past from a couple pages back:

 when in doubt, measure your waist!

my method and my measures:

  1.     Tcb suggest to everybody to buy the same size as on their 50s jeans
  2.     My size in 50s is 36, my natural waist where the jeans seat, measured snug with a tailor tape is 92 cms
  3.     Tcb 50s come with a 91 waist and stretch to a 92 easily. jeans fit right, I can wear them without a belt, but they're not constricting by any means. *
  4.     voilà

* I also confirm that I wore a 36 when my waist measured 95/96 cm, but the fit is better now of course.

As a comparison in my size 36 SC47 were looser in the waist than the 50s. I now sold that pair of SC47 (I lost weight), and I am pretty confident I could fit a 34 in them.

Fuck it. @Qube's loose '50s and Ryo's IG post changed my mind on fit. I sized up. 36s inbound. 

 

Loose fit '40s for those vintage fades. 

Nice man !

I can't agree more !
