TCB 30’s jacket – update 1

Another wash for my TCB 30’s jacket means it is time for update 1. The contrasts have settled nicely since I got it, much thanks to the tighter sleeves compared to my other jackets.

I don’t want it to get out of hand, so from now on it will be treated with more frequent washing. Since the jacket uses the same fabric as my TCB 20’s, I already know that it keeps its indigo quite well. Washing won’t be an issue. It will even thrive from it, showcasing that wonderful marbling texture.

Marbling fabric

What made TCB 20’s one of my favorite jeans I’ve come across so far is the fabulous fabric. The marbling you get from frequent washing is a real treat for the eye. Now it is starting to show on the jacket as well. With time it might even challenge the XX-fabric on my Denime 506.

Patch and button evolution

If I’m not mistaken, I’ve washed the TCB 30’s jacket three times now. The iron buttons have barely begun to rust. But the leather patch is almost a goner. Still somewhat supple but the print is nowhere to be found. Just like it should be!

Well, that’s the end for update 1 on my TCB 30’s jacket. More updates to come next spring.

If you are looking for a classic style denim jacket, but want a little longer body length and tighter sleeves I couldn’t recommend this enough. Go fetch yourself one straight from the guys at TCB Jeans. It’s much easier now that they’ve hired an English speaking employee.
