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.
This pair of jeans are inspired by the war time jeans, the S501XX model made by Levi's in the 40s. The war's need for materials led to restrictions on what could be used for manufacturing, which led to a cleaner and simpler design on the jeans from this time. It is made with details such as hidden back pocket rivets and the so called V-stitch behind the top button. The Japanese selvage fabric used in this garment is loomed to be as close to the fabrics specs from that time as possible.
These jeans are playing around with history a bit as black denim weren't around in the 40s. The dark jeans was introduced by the king himself in the 50's. Elvis rocked pair of black Levi's in the box office hit Jailhouse Rock and the rest is rock n' roll history.
TCB produces their garments in their own factory. TCB's combination of great knowledge when it comes to vintage garments and a collection of old vintage machines makes this pair of jeans great in every detail.
Hampus is 177 cm long, weigh 71 kg and wears a size W32.
The jeans are pre-washed so they wont shrink when worn. You can expect them to expand slightly when you wear them. Due to the nature of the fabric all these jeans have a strong leg-twist, just as the original vintage jeans back in the days. TCB uses right hand denim just like Levis did and that makes the legs twist in the right direction.
Hemming is always included when you purchase a pair of jeans from us! Give us a comment during check out 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.
For hemming, we'll use a vintage Union Special chain stitch sewing machine, to match the original seam of the jeans.
