Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

Recommended Posts

Mine are still on the drying rack - will have to get a hold of a newspaper in the meantime.

On another note - have anyone else experienced irregularities when it comes to the jacket sizing? After trying mine on again I realized that it's way to small - almost two sizes in the chest meaning it's way too small for me.

81 years ago today, Germany invaded Poland and thus started what we know today as the Second World War. It lasted 6 years and caused unimaginable suffering. Never forget, never again!

Coincidentally, this is also the day where we start this “WW2 jeans contest”, a contest to fade jeans but also to bring people together from all over the world in friendship.

To say it with the words of dear @Nayuta ‘s pocket bags “NO WAR, JUST PEACE”!

 

And here is my entry:

You mean because I need that long to fade them? :D
And thanks, really pleased with the fit.

Yep, way smaller than measurements for me too. It's too small, but actually fits better than I would expect from the numbers. I've been wondering whether I need to size up one or two when I exchange and I think one will be alright for a slim fit.

@Hopethisoneisnttaken you are a brave man, wearing jeans at those temperatures! :D

Haha well I generally don’t. I do only if I’m indoors, which doesn’t happen much these days. I’ll probably have to wait about two more weeks till this monstrosity of a heat wave passes and then I’ll start wearing the jeans in a day to day manner.

Whereabouts in our fair city do you live?

Sorry buddy :) I probably could make it work, but not really willing to let 18 months of contest rely upon me keeping an incredibly tight diet! hah!

My reputation is in tatters anyway, so a little extra neg won’t change a thing :laugh2:

I'd say supporting is a big word in this context but I certainly appreciate aspects of their newspaper even though a some of the content reads like it's written by 8 year olds.

I'm right on the edge of Aarhus N and Aarhus V.
