I think I'll be reinstating rationing so I can fasten the top button.

2oz of butter a week? That's a nice slice of toast, normally?!

I like those pocket bags. This whole time I didn't realise you were getting raw instead of OW!

usually I would buy one-wash these days but a contest has to start raw and is preferably soaked/washed at the starting date ;)

Normally, I agree on the soak-start, but with all the measurement panic I had to find out now...

Anyone here with an OW order gotten their shipping notice yet?

I'm starting to think I won't have my pair by sep 1st with the way Danish customs usually operate.

Yep same thing here:wacko2: kinda nervous now bcs of the possible sizing issues and that I haven't got the shipping notice email yet

Still no tracking for me. Wonder if everyone with one wash will even have in time for the start date.

@Duke Mantee thank you for helping me out with these and giving me your spot. I am sorry that they didn’t work out for you though.

thank you @beautiful_FrEaK too for reaching out. 

Hope everyone else can sort it out.

b_F ... pre-soak looks gravy from here!

duke: a totally reasonable and honourable route! [keep the jks coming...]

heyson most welcome!

foxy: so good to see you back: all words listened to as mana... plus your detail shots are what I imagined are coming...

the issue seems to be about 1 inch for the bigger sizes, more for those smaller [?] ... swap shop as the learned brownmetallic suggests may be a positive way through, especially for those who sized down given the chart...

My raw pair came today - no issues with customs, mate ;)

I like that fit! @buler

Thanks, tigerstrom. I'm working on losing some of my abdominal protection layer and then they'll be spot on.

Looks great everyone, glad most are able to manage. 
 

my problem was closer to 2” discrepancy and I just couldn’t fight a fit every tine they were washed. I believed the size charts and thought I would be getting a 36” after all said and done. That way, even with minor deviations, I would still have some wiggle room. Expecting that from My pair just wasn’t realistic. I’d have liked to pass the baton, but seeing the pocket bag tears after a single wash was the final nail in the coffin. I’m more disappointed than anything. It’s been a rough year and I was really looking forward to interacting with some old denim pals again.

I hear you, gnomes. I was looking forward to your participation in the contest. I'm bummed that TCB missed the mark so badly on your pair and compounded that with QC issues on the pocket bag. Just a bummer all around. Did you even want to consider a size swap from TCB?
