I’ve worn mine for about a day now and it’s really a great fit - suits me very well.

However, I went with a 33 instead of my usual 32 for a bit of a looser feel in the thighs and I’m afraid I’m having a tough time bonding. Lemme know if anyone has the opposite issue and wants to trade a 32 for my 33.

Loving these. Possibly my favorite piece of Iron Heart I own, went for a 35, instead of a 34 which I am normally, noticed the 35 measurements were a little closer to my other pair of 888s. Very happy to own a pair of black Iron hearts that I love.
Now and forever.

A thought occurs: Being that these are quite a bit higher rise than the 666s I usually wear (these are about 11.5”, 666 is usually about 10” for my size), would it be advisable to size down for the waist since they’ll be sitting higher up? Which for my waist is a bit narrower once I get over the hips. I love this fabric and I’d like to try this cut, still unsure if I should go for the 29 or 30 though. I see that a couple of posters have opted to size up which confounds me even further.   ???

I think it depends on whether you think the waist or the thigh is the limitation.

Thighs definitely aren't a limitation, I can generally go as low as about 10.5" in the thigh. Thighs on these are a bit larger than what I normally wear but I don't mind. Waist is more of a concern, usually get as close to 29" as I can in most denims so they'll stretch to about 30".

I sized down on my IH-888-UHR after I had to flip my IH-888S. The 888S were ordered TTS (with waist stretch accounted for) but came up too big in the waist, imho because of the higher rise sitting at a slimmer part of the body. The sized down pair work perfectly in the waist.

I only sized up cause I went TTS on the 888s and the 35 on these seemed closer to the 34 on those in my opinion.

I went one-size-up from my typical 32 (bought a size 33) and it fit like magic - except, I'm used to wearing my jeans a lil' below my waist and that combined with the high rise gave me diaper-butt.  I just don't think that I can adult enough to wear pants at my waist.  I have since ordered a 32 with slightly larger measurements than posted.  The 33 is currently for sale in the buying/selling thread.

Thanks @manufc10, I feel like the moody sky compliments the Superblack nicely as well!

I wonder will the super black will be made in a 1955 cut? They are fresh for the 888 cut.

Certainly not out of this selvedge denim.  We have used it all up. I think unlikely that we will do it out of the non-selvedge version I am afraid
