Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

Recommended Posts

I ordered 31 OW. I have a size 32, 31, and 34 TCB 50s. The 31 feels best on me so I went with that.

I also own a sz 32 sugar cane 1947 - I would defintely not get a 31 in those - that waistband is pretty snug. 

I wear a 32 in earls apparel stuff - gung ho camp trousers and fatigue pants 

32 in LVC 1955 - Wish I had gone with 31 on these. But the measurements on the 32 1955 are pretty similar to the sizing chart for the s40's on TCB's site.   

I am following Erk. I'm 32 in the TCB 50s (roomy, lower shot), 31 20s (top shot, as far as I remember they were trim but not tight), 32 60s. I found SC Edo Ai 31 too small. Ryo thinks 31 will be ok although Inoue-san might disapprove. SO i think I'll go 31. Do you think that's reasonable, @erk?

Update: Done. 31/30. No stacking for me. Ordered raw so I can stretch waist if necessary.

logging into sufu, after quite a while, I catch the buzz...and when did not needing another pair of jeans ever stop me? :)

ordered 34 rigid, hemmed to 30". (UK) Stoked to be part of this. 

thanks for organising this @volvo240thebest I'll send you the details.

I think you may follow me anyway - billyspa. I have to confess, I’m not active on it either so don’t feel obliged to follow if you’re not - it’s probably not worth your effort! 

Anyway, glad you’re in on this. It’s shaping up to be the best contest we’ve seen in years around here.

@unders

of course! I have noticed your ig had been quiet. We messaged about the LVC chore coat. 
 

I should dig out my denim collection and take some photos to post here. I was pretty heavy into LVC in the late 90’s.
