And, at last, they are ready to ship from Japan.  But because of holidays etc, I don't expect to see them here for a couple of weeks.....

You can also check out Matty123's 888-XHSib sample pair thread. Same denim, different cut.

Dude THANK YOU!! That was exactly the visual therapy I needed and those 888's look killer @Matty123
 
On another note, regarding quantity, does anyone know if the 555-XHS drop will be larger than the 555sii drop today?  Just from what I saw on ironheart.uk's site it didn't seem like a very substantial quantity, especially for a major seasonal release??  Was this due to the fact that this was the last of the 18oz double indigo? or are these numbers standard for every release??

I think it depends all on the release. To me, it seemed small because of the lack of denim left. I could be wrong. On a release such as this one, I assume they'll send some to the stockist and sell the rest here. Just keep your eye on the thread. The Crew gives a heads up with the email notifications so you should be okay if you act somewhat quickly.

Numbers can vary due to a whole load of factors; the amount of denim that is available, Japanese release or western only, number of retailers are taking them etc, etc.

The XHS is hard to make and these utilise a complicated and expensive dyeing process. Also, given that both the 888 and 555 are being made from this denim and given that this is available in Japan I don’t expect there to be loads.

The crew may have numbers but you may also have to wait and see.
Get ahead, go figure, go ahead and pull the trigger,
