TCB type 2 jacket Pre and Post Soak Measurements

TCB type 2 jacket Pre and Post Soak Measurements

Yesterday I finally gave in to the calls of the TCB 50s style Type 2 jacket. 

I came home after work and gave this unsanforized beauty a little bath to take out the initial shrink and make it fit just that much better. 

Here are my results. 

Pre Soak size 40 fit

 TCB 50s type 2 style jacket unsanforized Japanese Selvedge denim

Pit - Pit 21"

Shoulders 19"

Length 28"

sleeve length 27"

Soak Process

Results Post Soak.

Pit - Pit 20" loss of 1"

Shoulders 18.5" loss of .5"

Length 27.25" loss of .75"

sleeve length 26.5" loss of .5" 

I think I'd still like the Sleeves to shrink up a little bit more, but I'm going to start putting some time into it and see how it comes up over the next few weeks. 

Hyped !
