I know, me too... and just to have a whine, it pisses me off that I haven’t worn mine for weeks, and won’t do for a good while. Leg brace goes under 634’s and over 555’s. Anything else doesn’t work
Oh no! Get better!

On the upside I’m going to have some pretty original fades on the left leg of my IH-555N

I must've missed something. Everything alright @neph93

I went over on the ice a while ago. Suspected rupture of the cruciate and medial ligaments. MR in 14 days to confirm.

@Seul suggested I should have dropped the baby I was carrying to save myself, as babies bounce. Obviously not the case with Belgian babies as his noggin must have taken a serious whack at some point in his infancy

Whacks. Plural
Maybe so. Maybe not

Missed the preorder but scored a pair of 34" 888 NT during Iron Heart's amazing Xmas sale! Here are the raw fit pics along with my tried and true soaking process that controls the twist (1 hour warm soak). The folding pattern seems to keep the seams lined up while the thread and water does it's thing. I did this with my pair of last season's IH DWC and had no leg twist while maximizing the shrink. (It has worked with my other other unsanforized brands as well). Measured the inseam and they shrunk 2.5".  Perfect!  Waiting for them to dry a little more before the first wear. Can't wait after seeing all your evo pics!

Excellent fit there! I also never had any legt twists after soaking my (unsanforized) jeans folded as well. The perfect strategy.

I had to do one more hot soak for two hours to get these guys down to where I needed. Very comfy fit to these jeans. I found a nubbin in the weave on the left knee right where a lot of fade will happen. I don't know if it is a flaw that will fail or just some extra slub. Compared to last DWC UHR , these were easier to manipulate and shrank a lot more.

I got one of those nubbins too. No issues with failing yet.
Maybe so. Maybe not

@manufc10 Thanks man, I found the belt at a saddle craftsman booth in a local fair. Thick full grain leather so I bought three colors from him. Unfortunately I don’t have any contact info. Vans have been my shoe of choice since high school, however I don’t skate as much as I used to... Those are my house shoes.
 Sounds like the nubbins are pretty common so I’ll just chalk it up as a beauty mark.
