Well, I said for quite some time if TCB ever does a WW2 contest I will join that one. Especially since all TCB contests were great.

When this now popped up, I initially thought I'm still in the GBG001 contest and two contests at a time are stupid. So I didn't join directly but I was often in contact with Volvo.

But then I know I stand no chance to win either contest so why not join this one and do what I said years (?) ago.

Should have joined tomorrow for more drama though ;)

What made you join?

 

Edit: oh and I haven't bought a newspaper in ages, seems like a good excuse 

Well you’ve kept me on tenterhooks long enough but I’m glad you entered

I just wanted to see why @volvo240thebest kept banging on about TCB, and price and waiting list for CSF meant any other wonky stitching opportunities were limited

Also, in all my years I have never bought the local newspaper so it seemed too good an opportunity to pass up

I bet @beautiful_FrEaK doesn’t win this contest :happy: 

Even if you entered we could only imagine what your fit pics would be like :tongue:

Hi Volvo, please include me in the list? I've just ordered a slightly optimistic 32. Representing UK although I sit on my ass all day so I doubt I'll trouble the leaderboards

I joined because I’ve been wanting to do a denim comp. 

Then I saw the details of the jeans were right up my alley. 
Then I slowly began to work on convincing all my DB buddies to hop on the wagon. 
All the DB alumni are joining so I figured it would be fun to be in a comp with a bunch of friends.

Thanks! Also a big thank you to you and others whose advice on sizing was very helpful, even if I did dilute it with a dose of wishful thinking & waistline nostalgia

gonna have to shift the lockdown lard now

To @DoitsuJin's question, planning for a small single or a tight double roll. I included the extra 2 cm in the inseam to allow for additional shrink. We'll see where they end up. Hem length is definitely most tricky with these wide legs if you don't want to rock a wide cuff. I went based off two pairs I have that work well with a small roll and when single cuffed have enough length to stay down over the top of my boots when motorcycling.

As for why I joined, my TCB '50s are my favorite pair of jeans I've owned, fit and fabric (Full Count 0105 a close second). When this contest popped up, it was an easy choice to join. I don't know if the fabric can live up to the '50s, the '20s fabric certainly doesn't imo. Only one way to find out - with full tux! Eyeing this to layer underneath the jacket during winter cycling.

Ok, I’m in for size 29 (edit: 30, sizing up) raw! pulled out my emergency fund and just made it with $25 left for this weeks groceries! In the true spirit of TCB there’s a good chance I’ll be eating cat food to celebrate!

I'm in - Full tux (representing Sydney, Australia)

33OW x 33

42OW

Really went back and forth about the jacket sizing  - I have a Levi's type 3 in a M (which is basically a 40 based on the chest/shoulder measurements) but fits slim to the point where I can only have a t-shirt underneath. Decided to size up because, even if it's one wash, if I purchased a 40 and if it shrank further, I'd be f-d. This way, I've got some leeway, and space to layer if needed.

I went with my Denime 50's sizing (33). If I was just getting the jeans, I  would have joined ages ago. Just trying to figure out the jacket sizing that held me back!

This competition is on fire! I wouldn't have guessed that we would be over 100 contestants from sufu! That's so cool :)

Looking forward to wear a roomier cut again. I went with inseam 82cm for a double cuff but I might change that again haha.

So, went with a raw W34 and a final inseam of 31" after washing.

@beautiful_FrEaK my spec as well. Be interesting to see how they wear on each of us.

what I like the most at this stage is the solid roster of dedicated players we have put down.
we will easily end this contest with no less that 20 epic pairs.
to not mention the pleasure of seeing a lot of friendly faces and a lot of newcomers that may deliver some mighty-ness along the way.
Best bit though: more women than ever in this competition!

Anyone else order a 31, 31 OW?  Just curious about your height and your normal size in other brands/cuts. I may have jumped the gun and fucked up my chosen size.
