@garden gnomes in space They’re hot soaking right now,  so we’ll see ... I’m not planning on washing tho ... Initially,  I usually just do periodic soaks until I need to wash.

Hope it works for u, mate.  There might be some folks in the same situation ... might be able to swap it out,  in case they don’t work out.

I didn’t try mine on first but after a hot wash my 34 raw are now 32. Hoping for a lot of stretch

I might be fucked. I went by the size chart posted in the very first post. 

Same. I went by the posted size chart. If they are tag size when raw, I'm doomed.

My tagged size 32 measure 16 1/2” raw at the waist and only 12 5/8” at the thigh. I’m most worried about the thighs not fitting after a wash. These might not be the looser fit I was was looking forward to. Will report back after a hot soak and dry.

Hopefully the chart size is reflects what’s built - otherwise what’s the point of the chart? I’ll be double checking the minute they arrive.

Yikes. I’ve been worried that I should’ve sized up. I ordered  a 32 one wash, and your thigh measurement for raw is really cutting it close- these jeans might not fit me.

Shoot, probably should have gone for a 36 after reading these comments. I went one wash , so I won't know forsure how the denim will fit me. I do remember Ryo saying that this denim stretches a lot more than other TCB Denim when I asked him for sizing help. This only really helps for waist issues, not sure how much stretch you will be able to get in the thigh.

extremely happy with my pocket bag combo. i ordered size 29 rigid. 29 is my 50s size. i’m almost positive these will be way too small after i wash them. measurements are 

waist: 28.75in

thigh: 11in

rise: 13.5in

I can tell the waist is going to be an issue for me after a soak, the rise is really high and it hits me at my widest point (which has expanded thanks to the pandemic). This gives me even more motivation to drop some fat, so maybe it's a good thing.

Not going to lie if the charts weren’t correct then I’m screwed as well.

The 40s set just came -- size 36 in the jeans and 44 in the jacket.  Jacket fits great -- shorter than some.  Pocket is a little small for a wallet.  Sorta wish there were a fifth button as there's a gap between the top button and next one down.  But it's the 40s, I know ;-)

The jeans are nice.  Wonky stitching on back pocket may make a standard wallet a little tricky to get in and out.  Here are the raw measurements on size 36.  These are way bigger than my 50s in size 34 in both the waist and rise.  Interestingly though, the thigh, knee, and leg opening on the 40s are a bit trimmer, even with the larger tag size.

W          36.375"
FR         14.5"
BR          19"
Thigh    13.375"
Knee     10.375"
LO           9.5"
Inseam   35.375"

I was fairly confident in my size when I placed the order, but all this talk has me concerned that maybe I should’ve sized up after all…guess we’ll have to wait and see

Honestly, as much as I want to support TCB (and as excited as I am for these jeans), if the sizes are this far off from the advertised charts I’ll probably try to sell or return

Can people who have their jeans give an approximation on how far off the measurements are from the size chart? 
I was hoping for a roomier fit but a small thigh is not what I wanted. 
I’m hoping my one wash pair work out but if they’re this far off. I’m going to prolly need a refund.

The hips are 22.5" right on the bottom button and 23..25" two inches below.

I might actually need a 33 instead of my 34 because I am losing weight pretty rapidly.

Will have to see and feel it out once my pair gets here. I will PM you!

That would be amazing... do keep me posted. :-))

is it me or do a lot of folks seem to have tighter jeans then expected? Lol

I'm actually a bit worried that the thigh measurement is 1 inch smaller than on the charts. I also ordered size 36 and have the 50s in 34. I wanted a larger thigh measurement on this pair.
