Bottoms / Re: IH-666S-18 - 18oz Vintage Style Selvedge Slim Cut
« on: March 13, 2018, 07:52:03 am »
Got home after work yesterday, did some measurements, and tried it on again. Concluded that its too small :( While wearable, I agree its too tight and uncomfortable. I`ll probably need a size up to W34 or maybe an altogether different cut with more room in the top block.

If the size 33 waist is OK yet hips and thighs are tight, then another cut may suite you better. You may find with a 34 the waist is too big even if the hips and thighs are OK. The 666 cut fits me similarly - doesn't work. 634 and 888 are better suited to my build. Also check out SE has a 633 version in the 18oz vintage, if you prefer more taper below the knee. But then again the measurements on the 634S-18 are one of the best of the 634 range. The 18oz vintage is one of IH's greatest denims.

Yeah, its such a pity the top block/ thighs on the 666 are so slim. Im 6 ft 177 lbs and suspect my build is similar to yours. This precludes the 777 too.

I have the 634s-21 and its such a brilliant pair of jeans. As for the 888s - the rise looks a tad too long; coupled with the strong taper, its not really my thing.

Thanks for the tip and I`ll check out the 633s! Hopefully the 18oz vintage denim will be extended to more of the cuts too!

Thanks so much for your replies, comments, and measurements @xtcclassic @gautamkrisna !

Unfortunately, I can't return it as I got it hemmed to 34 inches. So will try selling it!

P.S: Great fit pics @gautamkrisna !

Hi Guys

A quick question and fit check please. Just got these in size 33, and the waist is perfect - fitting but not too tight. The top block though, especially the thighs, is quite snug/tight. Maybe due to the crunchiness of the denim.

Any idea how much stretch the 18oz denim gives?
