Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

My 34 rigid after a hot wash measure 32 in the waist, 12 at the thigh 34 in length and the leg opening is 8 1/4.  all measurements are in inches

Minus the waist being way too tight to button I'm really happy with the fit, they're just a lot tighter than I expected them to be

I wouldn't say the 36 are tight at all (see raw measurements above).  I'm 6'0" and down from 185 to 175, so they'll be a little big.  But it's a relaxed 40s cut, from what I can tell.  I like that they're trimmer than the 50s down below.

^ I believe 1.3cm less in the thigh based on John's measurements for a 36 raw against raw chart

So here are my lottery pocket bags. Shipping definitely was crazy fast. I had them put their stay home pandemic patch on mine; did anyone else?

Where’s  @Maynard Friedman ... & @Double 0 Soul ?!?! Weren’t they both foreseeing a potential sizing clusterfuck ... it’s like the Samurai 710XX Lot 10 all over again:mellow:

I re-measured the thigh just now.  It's 13.375" on a raw size 36 -- so it's a little bigger than I said at first.

It looks like even a size 34, two sizes up from my size, is too small in the thigh for me. I can stretch a waist by wearing, no problem, but trim thighs aren’t going to work.

Guess I’m glad I sized up. I was worried that they were going to be too big.

I feel the same @Broark The only thing I'm worried about is the thigh measurement. My size 34 50s measure 13.5 inches (big style) after wear and stretch.

I didn’t measure mine, just tried on to ensure they fit loose enough raw, seems as though they do. Here’s what I’m getting in a size 30 inches/cm.

waist - 15.5/39.2/78.4

thigh - 12.25/31

knee (13 in down) - 9.5/24

hem - 8.625/22
front rise - 13.625/34.7

rear rise - 17.5/43.3

hip at bottom button - 19.3/49.5

at bottom of fly - 20.25/51.4

so, they are 3 cm smaller than the given waist measurement, 1.2 cm than thigh, .2 cm knee, slightly longer rise, hem almost exact.
This has also taught me that we should start using the metric system as I had to do math to figure out the decimal for 5/8 an inch, while I can just look at the measuring tape for cm.

Shit.

I've only recently got my sizing strategy down right so that I get a waist that fits after stretch without a belt. And with the measurements available and a pair of rigid 50s sized perfectly at 33, I thought 33 rigid was going to be spot on too. But early reports suggest that is definitely not going to be the case.

Ah well, will see on Monday....

12.5 thigh raw on a size 36? How do you measure the thigh? @Illcutz :)

 

BTW I really like your pocket fabrics!

Never done that method but might have to resort to extreme measures on these.

Wearing my size 38s while they dry. Waist is definitely tighter than I would have wanted, but I'm more willing to blame my gut than TCB's charts...also I haven't worn jeans in like 5 months. I'll take some measurements after they dry.

Seems like my only resort to get them buttoned up. I don’t have a bathtub though so it’ll be soak, wash (both cold) then wear till dry...

Better if new measurements can be taken in cm 

The charts on page 1 are in cm so makes it easy to compare

I’ve been a 31 waist in nearly everything unless I’m intentionally sizing down or sizing up- I’m holding out and confident the sizing will be fine.

@indigo_junkie Has a waistband stretcher ... so, he’s covered for the eventuality.

I was imagining a more laidback steez, so I sized up to W36 ... but, I’ll take the slimmish fit ... it’ll prolly end up like my ‘47s W34 ... with a longish rise ... longest in all of my jean-dom.

Rigid measurements: W36 BiG-style 

W 18 : f/rise 14 : b/rise 19 : T 13.25 : K 10.25 : H 9.5

@erockisalive I’m interested in the 38 measurements once yours dry so I know what I’m in for.
