Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

Recommended Posts

I will gladly accept whatever bag is in my pair... seems like when we get our jeans there will be a new psychological condition -- pocket bag envy...

I think this thread will explode with pocket bags pics at some stage : )

But if the heavier tiger camo is used for the left pocket and a lighter weight material on the right one, then it’ll be fine due to the coin pocket balancing things out. If, however, it’s the other way round, then your’re royally screwed! :laugh2:

Don’t worry. We can set up a pocketbag swap shop like we did with Panini footy stickers back in our school days. 
Some poor sod will be left with a bunch of tiger camo spares!

I think it's a bit loud as a fabric, but I am a player and I like to play this russian roulette till the end.
If I finish with the camo, my left testicle will just play Cod, fuck it!

That’s brilliant

As best I can remember... the tigerstripe camo for Vietnam war...but yeah the point was using random clothes for pocket bags.
Let’s see what we get:cool:

I think the camo pocket bags comes from left stock of fabric they used for the collab 50s slim x DENIMIO. So i think they are literally using random fabric from their leftover stock of past productions.

^ Right, wasn’t that the idea from the start? That’s the case for all the fabrics they’re using…folks are just surprised to see the tiger camo there since it wasn’t on the initial list (and may not seem to fit as well as some other options w/ the overall theme)

Exactly!  Ryo confirmed that "we do understand that it didn’t exist in the 40’s but the point of this lottery pocket is to go true to the sprits of the WW2 production in our way so we have chosen our leftover fabrics that are durable enough."

It is a super cool concept!!

So long as the pocket bags are decent sized, I don't mind what fabric tbh.

As long as they don't suddenly add a Tickle Me Elmo fun-fur kangaroo pouch to the mix I will remain anxiety free.

This!!  Can't stand small pocket bags. (I could do without the CoD camo... although I was a huge fan of MWII)

Some of us, weighted unequally by a single camo pocket bag, will walk in circles, forever unable to correct their course...

If I could I would take one for the team and have the Tiger Camo! You can thank me later ;)

You know, that Tiger camo is kind of growing on me. I don't want my fabric wish-list for bags to be out there in case I jinx myself. Either I'm going to be pleasantly surprised, so happy I wear my pockets inside out, or so horrified I sew my pocket openings shut so I don't accidentally show anyone when I'm taking stuff out.

As an aside, I'll be doing the "picture of a news headline with current date from laptop" starting image instead of an actual newspaper with date image. Is it fair to say we can start whenever we get the jeans? A couple weeks here and there shouldn't hurt long term? (Sorry if I missed the rule on that, I couldn't find it)

Isn't it September 1st as the starting date? 

The headline check for the previous comp iirc, had you take a picture of your raw state jeans next to the newspaper on the day, to show you hadn't soaked/worn the jeans prior to the starting date. It won't matter to me since I'm buying my jeans one-wash, though.

It doesn’t matter that you wear your jeans  prior to the starting date for a couple days. As matter of fact, I believe any Japanese contestants will get the jeans before us. So you won’t be the only early bird.

I'm Japanese, but I can't fly even if I get it earlier than overseas.  As in the 20s contest, I have a fair race.:rolleyes:

I have the same idea.  Not a few Japanese participants I know will not cheat.

First day of spring (southern hemisphere). Should be able to get a few months wear of the tux before it gets too hot.
