Yes! Good to have you in, Gnomes.

Indeed. Not enough Italians in this goddamn contest so I had to force things a bit. He's one of us.

My old 20s contest pair

I'm a whore for good puckering and marbling. So that usually has me hot washing and super drying my jeans. But I am battling with the plan for this jean. Do I go for a more vintage look? Cold wash, hang dry only? So difficult. I know I can always look to you, Aho, to see the pucker possibilities.

As @aho’s pair shows TCBs puckering and marbling is nearly limitless... this is likely because Hajime used to repair vintage sewing machines as one of his first jobs. So he has all the sewing machine tensions perfect for marbling/roping/puckering.

Given Covid I’ll be washing pretty frequently... They’ll likely be completely washed out by contest end but I plan to wear these to shreds unlike how I could no longer for into my 20s halfway :X Upsized accordingly lol

Being a dad to three young boys makes frequent washing is my unavoidable reality.

I’ll take your challenge Aho ;) 

I’ll probably wear mine for work doing construction for a few months to really beat them up. Haha 

also frequent washing is a MUST with a toddler and 1.5 year old. Lots of food and other stains

I might find myself a couple weekend construction projects around the house just to be competitive. My wife will be thrilled.

Order placed for a full tux. You can mark me down as French / US but the order is to be delivered in Seattle. Maybe @ecsong187 and I should go out for beers together one day each with our contest pair.

Jeans - W34 L31 OW

Jacket - 42 (jacket is a bit long for my taste but couldn't pass it up.)

 

(Hmm.... My kid's birthday is in August; he's going to be 13. Maybe he should get one of those... No one can put as much wear on a jean as a 13-yr old boy, I suspect...)

I’ve got an awful lot of FW denim that (I guess) should be getting more wear but I’m really interested in this competition. I’ll consider my options ...

Would love to have you, Duke!

Also, would @nycsurfer530 consider a name change to @nycsurger? So sick.

I'd be delighted to have you onboard! To not mention the joy of pinning down the peasant lands of Scotland in the list,  it'd surely give some extra international allure to the Tcb denim Olympics :D
