TCB is a Japanese brand inspired by fits and materials from the past and they strive to reproduce those iconic garments as closely as possible.
These dungarees are inspired by the early days of blue jeans in a time when denim was associated with work clothes during the first half of the 20'th century. The Indigo dyed cotton twill fabric known as denim had proven to be durable and long lasting, making it the optimal material to use in garments that needed to withstand hard work.The design behind this overall comes from the Black Bear Co from their 1930's overall. Hajime Inoue, the founder and the designer of TCB Jeans wanted to pay a homage to Black Bear and to their beautiful design of the chest pocket that is more or less the same on the TCB version.
The fabric is a tightly woven 2 x 1 denim using grey-colored threads for the warps with a thickness of 10 oz. The look and the feeling of these are just like vintage originals and they will age just as beautiful when worn for years!
This overall has time typical details such as brass buttons and buckles and pockets on the chest. The overall has pockets on each side of the hips, two large back pockets, a loop for a hammer and a thigh pocket to store a ruler.
Although this is a reproduction of a vintage work garment it is comfortable and functional to wear no matter if you find you self crawling on all four in the garden or if you want a simple overall to wear in your everyday life!
TCB produces their garments in their own factory and a combination of great knowledge when it comes to vintage garments and a collection of old vintage machines makes this pair of dungarees great in every detail.
The overall is pre-washed so it wont shrink when washed. You can expect it to expand slightly when you wear it.
Hemming is always included when you purchase a pair of pants from us! Give us a comment or an email when you place your order and we will shorten them before we send them. Keep in mind that you won't be able to return the jeans if we alter the length for you.
