Finally, a perfect cut for me. 36 is spot on, but will have to wait for a new denim for me to justify getting a cut. Awesome cut!

Please introduce this great IH-888 Logo once again!!
It is an absolutely beaty.

Edit:
Fairly early we came up with the Lot Number 888.   The 21oz version will be IH-888S.

We tried a number of really cool ideas, but either H did not like them, thought they were too cute or the pun just did not work for the Japanese sense of humour.

So @trail and arrow came up with the concept of the octopus (oct = eight) and we took it from there.

I'm so excited for these and have been checking the site daily waiting for them to drop. I have to say however after seeing the measurements I'm a little concerned about the thighs being large enough. I wear a size 34 in my 634S and the 13.3" thigh is about as tight as I would want it. Is the 13" thigh in a 888S size 34 going to be a problem, or is there some other element to this fit (the higher rise?) that might make that a non-issue? I'm sitting with a 34 in my cart right now but am wavering because of this one thing.

The fit pics have me super tempted.  I am still trying to exhaust my options in prep for DWC.  Rolling the dice that the tiny human sizes don't sell out quickly as these are currently the default if nothing else comes up that tickles my fancy.  The taper on these looks perfect for boots, which is essential.

The 21oz is a very well known quantity. No shrinkage.

Same issue here. The 38 has a smaller thigh (13.9") than just about every 634 (~14.3-5") variant, it's even smaller than my PIH5DCT that I just got...

I am kind of surprised no one have mentioned/ compared yet  IH-633S cut  ex Self Edge
Some food for thoughts here: IH-888S/ IH-633S this year 2017/ IH-633S last year 2016
(Noted waist measurement method is different Haraki IH Ltd(GB) vs Self Edge Kiya

Tag Size   36/ 36/ 36                              
Waist   36.2/ 37/ 36.5   
Front Rise   12.3/ 11.4/ 11.7     
Rear Rise   16.7/ 15.25/ ? 
Thigh   13.6/ 12.75/ 13.3    
Knee           9.4/ 9.5/ 9.7    
Hem           8.6/    8.4/ 8.3    
 
P.S.: wow.. just have noticed great (!) thigh difference between 633 versions 2016 vs 2017

SE 633 are all quite a bit off from each of the 5 they offer. The taper is about the same, but the numbers are quite a ways off. The 14 and 17 are pretty close in all areas, only maybe .3" difference. But their 18OD is .5-.7" off in thigh alone, which makes the 36 unattainable for me. And their 21oz is around 12.8" thigh compared to the 14/17 around 13.5-6". Sucks only 2 of their 633 are proper for me...don't have skinny thighs haha.

The 888 will def bet a better cut for most compared to the 633.

The major differences as I understand it is that the 888 has a higher rise (and an extra button in the fly as a result), and that the taper on the 888 starts above the knee, while the 633 starts below the knee.
