nae bother mate. My pleasure. The 50's are a great pair of jeans.
My pair at the mo is enjoying a week off in the Mr Handy Denim SPA in the Nederlands. They need a lot of repairs (crotch, front and back pockets, fly, cuff holes), I am quite excited at the prospect of seeing how much will all those repairs cost...

denimio is the cheapest if you don't need the jeans hemmed. If you want them hemmed I'd say go with the factory store so you can get that nice tcb hem. This is coming from someone who bought a pair from denimio and would buy from tcb next time. 

and for what its worth the 50s are my favorite jeans I've found. best fit, awesome fabric.

Denimio is the cheapest place to buy TCB, even cheaper than buying from the factory.
@Eldani a 36 won't shrink to 34, it'll shrink to 35 and stretch back to 36 in  a couple hours of wear.
Measure your own waist at the top of your hips with a tape. If you're closer to 34 than 36 I'd suggest you to go with 34. If your waist is about 35 you could make both sizes work for you. The 36 will stretch and you'd need to wash often to let the jeans shrink back. If I was 35 I would personally go for a 34. My waist is around 36,7/37 inches most of the time (!) and I wear a 36. I could wear a 38 as well, but the 50's cut is quite loose, a 38 would be gigantic on me everywhere but the waist.

The note about the hem is helpful. I've had too many sloppy, chunky chain such hems done on jeans in the past. Guess I'll just get them from TCB

Erk you made a valid point. I never bought anything from Denimio, so I didn't know how much they charge for a hem. If you buy direct from the factory best thing is either email/DM/messenger Inoue and he'll send the paypal invoice. Beware unless you ask they'll declare the entire value on the parcel.

tcb 60's
this is my second pair of 60's, which I've started to wear in june last year. They don't have more than 6 months of actual wear. Washed 12/15 times I think. At this stage they start to look real nice and get that ocean blue hue that I really like.
