I haven’t got a shipping notification for the jeans yet, but I’m sure they’ll arrive fast when they ship- I ordered a shirt from TCB on Sunday night, and it arrived here in California 10 minutes ago, about 9:45 am. This is less than 48 hours. I’m impressed.

Part of me just hopes they show up with no tracking information provided, would be a nice surprise. :D

i was thinking they might be silently shipping them out. i wouldn’t mind either. it gets rid of the obsessive tracking neurosis :wacko2:

I have received items from Japan in 2-3 days in the NE US.  I don't understand why Warehouse still won't ship here...

 

 

So we will probably be getting the jeans by the end of this week.  That is pretty impressive work by TCB!  Congratulations!

On IG iirc, they could take 10 days to post them all out

The thing that is interesting to me is that I haven't seen a single person here say they have received any tracking information.

That makes me think they silently shipped them out then... unless someone has finally gotten tracking info or some people have gotten tracking and just haven't said anything.

*EDIT: Just saw on IG that they said they have been shipping since Monday, so they probably are just shipping them out without notifying which I hope is the case, because that allows me to hope that mine have already been shipped.

while i don’t really agree with the practice of shipping overseas without notifying, i agree completely with that theory. ^^ 

 

unless they’re just shipping japanese orders first that is. 

 

i find it pretty hard to believe with all the hype and excitement that anyone who knows their jeans shipped wouldn’t come to the thread to talk about it.

Yeah them shipping out the Japanese jeans first might be the reason. I agree that I'd be shocked if people who knew hadn't said anything.

it looks like there are 73 japanese contestants (including ryo and inoue) i’m not sure how difficult it is for them to ship out 73 pairs of jeans but i could see that taking a few days on it’s own.

I can see shipping taking a while given the size of their operations

FYI, I'm Japan based and haven't received shipping information yet.

I can confirm that they are covering the neighboring country first as some of Indonesian already got their tracking no, although i haven't received it myself.

Shipping 200 jeans of different lengths, one-wash/raw, etc. to different addresses mustn't be fun. I'm cool if mine don't arrive until a week or so after the start date, but would be nice to be able to see tracking details!

I heard the shipping has started for the rigid, with OW to follow

So within tomorrow all rigid pairs will be sent.

After that they will send the one wash. They start from unhemmed jeans and then send the ones that require hemming. They did the same for the rigid pairs.

They're giving priority to overseas orders and then ship the Japan jeans.

We're in the home stretch peeps!

The good thing is that it looks like the weather will be cooling off a little here in the next couple of weeks. Apart from rigid being shipped separately I suppose there's also a difference for us that ordered the full tux - keeping order of the shipping would be a nightmare otherwise

Looks like I’ll be last to receive my pair- one wash and hemming...

Not a problem at all, the fact that they organized everything so quickly to begin with is a feat in and of itself!
