Howdy. I’m about to order some of the non-wash/raw TCB 50s, either from Denimio or directly from Inoue. I will have them hemmed if I buy from Denimio or ask Inoue to do so if I go direct. I have a few questions, if you folks could so kindly help. Sorry in advance for the long post. I have tried to look through the whole thread and elsewhere, but there is conflicting info and hopefully I can resolve my lingering questions.

How much does the raw 50s denim shrink in length? Denimio says around 5-6 cm. Does that sound about right? If I want a 87cm inseam after shrinkage, shall I go with a 93cm raw length? If it matters, I tend to hot wash the jeans instead of soaking and hot dry them a bit to get a lot of shrinkage done, then maybe put them on damp and/or hang dry. I’m a little worried ordering direct from Inoue because of the language barrier. I don’t want there to be a misunderstanding that results in Inoue hemming to the wrong length (e,g., he thinks I’m asking for the post wash length or whatever). Maybe I’m just being a worry wart.

Also, will the waist stretch out beyond the original raw measurement after washing and wearing, or just to the raw measurement? I am thinking of getting a size 32. Denimio says they measure flat 83cm (just under 33”), as does the Redcast store. I just don’t want them stretching beyond that after shrinking and stretching. I understand many brands are a larger than tag size, like the “old style” Denime 66 I usually buy, which measure about 33” for a size 30! The Denimes never stretched beyond the raw measurement so hopefully these TCBs don’t.

If anyone has some measurements (e.g., before shrinkage and after wearing/stretching) or their experiences with these jeans I’d love to read about it.

Anyways, thanks in advance. I ttruly appreciate any help, and have enjoyed browsing this thread and lurking on the site for a while now.

Beautiful Bobbo! Washed frequently? TCB has got to be one of the most affordable Japanese brands out there that make incredible jeans.

Thanks mate! Somewhat frequently. Probably washed them after 5 months the first time and then much more frequently.

Really like what TCB is doing (most of the time). Nothing at all to complain about quality wise.
