What's the deal with the indigo arcuates by the way?  It can barely be seen in the pictures, giving a bland look to the pockets.  Standard arcuates are perfect...

I wasn't sold on the indigo arcuates until I saw these:  https://imgur.com/a/5Vqrt

Looks great when they come in imo!

Wow! They're quite the hidden gem as they appear disappointingly invisible at first but appear very nicely after heavy wear

I seem to prefer the blue acurates as well

Got a question, lads...

In tag 36 these are 14.1" in the thighs, compared to 13.5" for the 888S.  But these'll probably shrink to 13.5 or 13.6 after washing.  But might stretch out again?  (the thighs will certainly come under strain as my thighs push the limits of 14" thigh jeans)

So the question is, will these stretch out more in the thigh than the S version in time?  Or will they be practically identical? Thanks

Denim will only stretch out as far as your body will stretch it.  It's not like you will stretch one pair out to a measurement significantly more than another unless your body changes significantly.

Of course... I was just hoping of a comparison of the two fabrics involved, the UHR vs the classic IH weave. If the UHR can stretch back to where it started, it'll be bigger. Unless of course the 21oz stretches just as much...

My view.  UHR harder to stretch than traditional 21oz....

So we have an image in the thread, this is what the indigo arcs will look like when the denim fades....

Yeah thats cool.

I'm at the point with these where I know I'm going to break down and cop a pair so why not just do it now and get it over with.  Why delay the inevitable right?

My buying philosophy exactly.  The moment I start deliberating, I know that I will break down eventually, so I may just as well just get it over and done with.  I have never regretted anything I have bought, I have regretted stuff that I did not....

I have been away from the forum for awhile and had no idea that this cut now existed or that there was more UHR to be had. I saw this thread the other night and realised that these were coming out in a few hours. Best rash decision I've made this week. I'd give it longer....But I'm pretty impulsive and it generally turns out well. So excited to get these, the measurements look like a dream and I've always wanted this denim. Did it end up being bronze hardware?
