Contest Jeans (888-NT) and Contest Tee Information

IH-888-NT - 21/23oz indigo Selvedge DWC Jeans

THE NAMA TAKO EDITION

For the 2017-2019 Denim World Contest (DWC), we are making a 21/23oz  (AKA - UHR or Ultra Heavy Raw) version of the new 888 cut, which is a high-rise tapered cut.  The cut is not as extreme retro as, say the 1955 501, but it should work for a variety of body types included those of you with "athletic" thighs.

Sizes 29-34, 36, 38, 40, 42 & 44 (I don't have target sizing for the 42 and 44 but you should be able to extrapolate)

Price will be USD374

We are asking for a 50% non-refundable deposit with pre-order.  Please note, that pre-ordering does NOT commit you to buying that size, it is there to give us some idea of what we should make.  If you change shape before we ship and/or the target sizing is off, you will of course, be able to change size.

Pre-orders will close on 18th July.

Target sizing for shrunk/washed IH-888NT.  Please remember that these jeans will be shipped raw, so will be a little larger than these dimensions out of the box.

NOTE- Production version will have indigo arcuates:

@Giles will load the pre order pages shortly, sizing on the tee will be the same as the standard 7.5oz tees currently in the web store I believe.

can anyone advise me on what size I should be buying? My ideal model is the slim 666 fit but the rear rise and thigh measurements seem like 634   :( ???

My best fitted IH denim at the moment is the pronto collab PIH5DCS (tag 31). Measurements before 1st soak

Waist: 31.5
Front rise: 10.6
Rear rise: 14.8
Thigh: 11.4
Knee: 8.4
Hem: 7.8

:D I was looking at size 32 too but unsure about the shrinkage. If the thighs and rear rise go 1" smaller after 1st soak and machine wash I will be damn happy

As post #1 says, the sizing table is target sizing for SHRUNK/WASHED.  We tried to make it easy for you

Also 1" thigh shrinkage is not going to happen.

Is the shirt graphic definitely gonna be on the front? I think it would look pretty awesome on the back. Then just have a lil contest or IH logo on the front
