I'm just relieved that I scored a pair and can now sleep at night without having to wake up to check this thread for news :)

I love that they damn-near sold out in size 34 without a single product picture on the order page :)

They won't shrink an inch, but take some length into account for the honeycombs/ settling of the jeans... At 25 oz, they'll even need some more room than the 634S'es me thinks...
Yeah, I figured since these will be a bit looser on me (got a size 34 instead of my 33 634S), that more combs will form.  And with them being 25oz combs, they'll take up more slack.

My 634S are 34" long, and I'm double-cuffing.  I asked G to hem the XHS to 33.5".  I'm thinking that if they shrink a whole inch, i'll have a 1.5" single cuff, which I'm fine with.  I'm thinking they'll shrink maybe half an inch.  Honestly, my 634S haven't shrunk much.

I'm gonna be thinking about this non-stop until I actually see them, I know it :)

I do want to add for everyone that is getting these shortened to add little more than normal for the larger folds and combs they are going to create.
G mentioned .5-1" of shortening in the legs.  You think it'll be more?

Paul the rise doesn't change the length of your leg it just sits higher on your waist. Unless you low ride your pants then I don't want to know you.... :)
Gotcha, so the waist will just be higher.  I follow.

Thx guys!

Can someone confirm some hem math of mine?  Total length from waist to end would be the front-rise + leg.  If I want the 634-XHS to be the same length as my 634S, and the XHS has a 11.3" front-rise versus my 634S' 10.5" rise, I would want to have the leg length be .8" shorter on the XHS, due to the higher rise.  Does that sound right?

Hey G, are these expected to shrink in length a little bit with combs and all that?  I assume so, just trying to make hem estimations.

Yeah, 37" is crazy long for me.  I think I'll have to do that, Dave.  Thx

So I'm trying to decide if I should get these hemmed by G...my 634S say "34" for the length on the leather tab, but the 634S sizing page says that a 33 waist should be 35.1" long...So, brand new, would they actually be 34" or 35.1" in length, anyone know?

For a second I thought you were posting a picture of upcoming 32oz IH denim :)

Hey G, any idea whether these should be soaked before worn?  I.e. are they gonna be so stiff that it might damage them if you don't soak them?  That's what the SR's were like, right?

UNITY PREVAILS

In the build up to getting the shipment of XHS (scheduled for tomorrow), I unpicked the hem of my sample IH-634-XHS and gave them to Unity to see how she would cope.

It took 3 attempts to work out how best to feed the denim.  But on the third try,  Unity managed to tame the 25oz.

That's my girl....


Were goggles worn? :)

I'm guessing this is another picture of it, from Haraki's site:

Looks freaking amazing!  Looks damned expensive, too! :)
