It’s about time that TCB got its own website. There. Article done. Simple and right to the point, just like TCB’s philosophy when it comes to making faithful denim reproductions. Founded by Hajime Inoue in 2012, TCB has set out to produce painstakingly accurate reproductions of iconic denim and workwear.
The heavy hitters include their core range of denim: 20s jeans, 50s jeans, 60s jeans, their 30s denim jacket, and their 50s jean jacket. All of these products feature incredibly loyal attention to authentic details that go as far as sewing the pocket bags of the jeans roughly to mimic how inspirational jeans from the past were manufactured. When hundreds if not thousands of specific details come together, they create a piece of history, and that is what TCB does, with every garment they make.
As mentioned earlier, TCB doesn’t just do Levi’s repros, they are also crushing it in the workwear game with traditional chore coats and work shirts. The piece that introduced me to the brand were their Seamen’s pants which to this day would keep vintage militaria collectors on their toes. I’m sure the shawl collar jacket is just as good.
Proudly made in Japan, featuring cleverly interpreted workwear labels featuring TCB’s cat motif, this brand has earned its place in the denim and workwear community and we are happy they finally have a site. First orders receive a limited edition TCB cat pillow, stuffed with throwaway denim shreds. Oh and did I mention, international shipping is free this month?
