Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

Recommended Posts

The jeans
[blurb by Ryo, of course]

We've finally made something we had the biggest expectations about.
When Hajime Inoue started TCB back in 2012, he was more fond of the standard vintages like 501XX model, 66 model because those vintages appeared perfect for him back in days but as he's got more skilled at making jeans and more knowledgeable about how to faithfully reproduce vintages, he started to find more beauty in the imperfections. 
The simplified models are full of sketchy work and it's far from perfection butare full of history and story behind.
The cut, the construction and every tiny detail is faithfully reproduced from the original S501XX.

Really looking forward to these! I guess asking for sizing advice isn't much good since no one else has tried them out, either, but: unsure whether to go with a 32 or a 33. Would generally default to a 33, but the waist looks like it's on the big side relative to other measurements. How have folks sized TCBs in general, relative to other common brands? TTS, or down one, or ?

Ordered the full tux as the excitement and experience of the 20s contest Jean's placed heart before head.

Count me in.

I have the 50s in size 34 but I'm going for 36 on this pair. The 50s are a bit snug in the waist nowadays.

Used to be standard for the early contests here , pick a start date then everyone takes a pic of there unwashed jeans with a newspaper from the agreed starting date . Originally I think it was more to do with people thinking an extra few days in the jeans was cheating but I think it's cool just for nostalgia sake

Hyped for this!

@volvo240thebest Has Ryo given any info about how much stretch they've seen with these? From the video and measurements it seems like they shrink a lot from washing, but I'm wondering how much stretch to expect afterwards.

Kind of in the same boat here, between 36/38.

SIZING: the fabric shrinks a lot. Please refer to one wash measurements. Ryo says the cut is very similar to the 50s, but the rise is higher (so it's very high) and the hem width is a touch smaller. To all those who own a pair of 50s, get the same size, unless your body shrank or streched in the meanwhile.

general sizing reference, for my size 36 Tcb waist is smaller than Sugarcane and Warehouse. 50s shrink and then stretch to about the true size.

Great, thanks Volvo—if your '50s are smaller than Sugar Cane and Warehouse and these are presumed to be sized similarly to the '50s then I should definitely be looking at a 33

Woohoo!

Thanks Volvo! I wear a 32 in my 50's and my Sugar Canes, but I have to use a belt because the waist is slightly loose after wear. I'll likely go for a 31 in these because the rise is even higher than the 50's.

Woohoo!

I don't have anymore the SC47s, but I remember that. And perhaps my Warehouse benchmark is not correct, because I have only the 1004xx (20s repro) which I think have a wider waist than average Warehouse. Anyway these are much similar to the 50s, so size down is a No No!

I need to wear my 50s for a day or two before I place the order. I'm torn between 34 and 36 and as I mentioned before I got the 50s in 34 but the waist is a bit tight.

I'm down for this! I wear a size 34 in 50's slim. Based off the chart , I should be able to rock these albeit a bit snug. With some wear they should be pretty good. I'm based in the US :)

 

Thanks again Volvo and TCB crew.
