Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

Recommended Posts

I asked Ryo to hold off mailing mine- I took an unexpected trip to LA... so I may be checking in late.

Got my tracking as well - estimated delivery on Friday where I'll be out in the woods somewhere. Oh well - guess I'll have to wait a little.

Well shit. I had no idea about the 88 - white supremecist connection. Guess I'll be unpicking my work before wearing in public...

Or I guess I could add the cat ears & whiskers.

PS. I want to thank to Cororalclegg & DJungelorm for clueing me in. It's frightening to think that I could have inadvertently caused people to think I was a white power nut.  

Column 88 and Combat 18 / C18 / 318 are/were quite a British thing and right in front of your face during the 80’s & 90’s...hard to miss.

I've never heard of those things, Foxy. I left the UK in 1988. Ironically...

Incidentally, this was very tight while drying. But now is relatively slack. So the fabric does have a good amount of give (this was a long-ish cold-ish soak only).

@Bowler - nice top block fit: hoping mine are somewhere near that...

@CSL - white power have even had a go at appropriating the ok hand symbol... rocket 88 is a great track tho...

Great pics and DIY mods so far, looking forward to this!

@CSL - just put a 0 in the middle and pretend you’re an 808 State fan.

Now also have received my notification - land looking like its here 1st September.

Your arcs look so good @Bowler
@CSL - that's a downer on the88


If I got the fit that H_Monkey_82 has above I'd be a v happy :happy: - tho not likely

One thing I always wondered - Do people think the fits on less tall people often look better?  Jeans seem to just hang better - maybe especially on wider cuts?

Rock Against Racism was pretty much the reaction against those up to the early 80’s.

please make sure to not ignore fascism in your new home country...

@Foxy2 - because someone wasn’t aware of a fringe right-wing group in the 1980s doesn’t mean they are ignorant of fascism, which your comment could easily imply. No need for the ducking stool just yet!

You can mod a quick release bar clamp to make your own waist stretcher. This one cost me $10 (jeans pictured not tcb obviously).

The plastic ones on Amazon can break for denim over 21oz. I snapped mine in half forcing me to look for a sturdier alternative.

クイックリリースバークランプを改造して、独自のウエストストレッチャーを作成できます。これは私に10ドルかかりました(ジーンズは明らかにtcbではありません)。

アマゾンのプラスチック製のものは、21オンスを超えるデニムで壊れることがあります。私は半分に私のものを折って、より頑丈な代替品を探すように私に強いました。

Cool!  Good idea!  :biggrin: 

I searched for waistband on Amazon.  Hahaha higher than I expected:DC31A04D3-82B3-45CD-96D3-C80892A9EE06.thumb.jpeg.12f17a3e6eb3c52bf017d472dfd2a6d0.jpegCCC2BB52-1F72-4F02-9520-3BD194349891.thumb.jpeg.7c44d7eebc41347dbd39753085363c73.jpeg

The stretchers that don’t clamp the open front can actually rip/damage the top button hole.

been there, done that...

The Inchmaster (or when I bought it 10 years ago, the Bakersfield), can actually encourage you to overstretch the jeans because the clamp bypasses the top button. Imo, if jeans are stretched to the point where the top buttonhole tears, they're overstretched. This method is good for a max 2in stretch for size 32-34 jeans. If it needs more than that, better to cut your losses and sell it on. Anyway, this is more for me to squeeze into jeans after a winter weight gain. The ideal would be to buy jeans that fit in the first place.

@buler thanks bud. Can’t wait. You’re close to my build. So I’m hoping my 33 one wash work. But I’m scared. Haha

I just got a notification from Fedex that my jeans will be here by 10:30 am. Just like my last order from TCB, that’s less than 48 hours from when I got my shipping notification. That’s crazy fast. I’ll try to post pics this afternoon or evening.

Mine have left Japan but no estimated date yet. Hoping for Friday! Also hoping I don't have to try to stretch them too much (I can do a little without an apparatus).

Since everybody and their mother is already washing/sokaing their jeans I might bite the bullet and do the same on the weekend or so :D
