@Filthy I have both. I really don’t know what causes the electric blue fading. If I had to guess, I would think in the case of the RE, it’s the resistance of the recycled yarns to absorbing dye. It’s also worth noting that the RE doesn’t have a white weft. So perhaps it’s the lack of white weft that these two share, and what let’s the white highlights of the warp to show. I’ll take some shots of both together sometime soon.
I put on my pants the same way you do, I just put on better pants.

Thanks a lot. I would appreciate a comparison. I know I am wild about the color of my 888-xhsib.

These seem a lot more brown in these photos than the ones I tried in Corlection. They are the perfect jean for em and I wish I owned a pair!

@Filthy

One soak pre-wear on the xhsib. RE are in the same state as previously.

@tvenuto really cool. The xib is way deeper though. Love those electric and cobalt blues.

@tvenuto keep up the good work on the eco, looks great! Sadly no one else is posting any wear. I forgot about this denim.

Yea seems to be suffering the same fate as the yenim in that regard. The xhsib has been monopolizing my legs for now but once the weather heats back up it’ll be all these.

I’ve got a secret: these pants are gold! I suppose @tvenuto has been saying this. I’m stoked on my new summer jeans! So comfy already, thanks 888 thigh measurement—and just the right level of crispy. Here’s a crappy fit pic for y’all:

So I’ve been looking at this pair for a month now and I think I’m finally going to move in for the kill. Thanks for the pic and endorsement @sabergirl

Jump on these, for sure, man. I’m really liking the denim. The dark brown weft is a nice change. I also have been really wanting to invest in a recycled denim since Giles first floated the idea.

Sidebar: besides Iron Heart (and like shoes, undies and socks) I try not to purchase anything new. Textile processing and the general footprint of clothing is way too high. I of course break my own rule sometimes, but I do try my best to live by it. Also: there’s a lot of great vintage, and a robust secondhand market for high end denim and work wear—so it ain’t that hard.

@sabergirl congrats and yes they’re awesome. Basically break-in free, they feel like old friends in no time flat. Also, twins? (This was me yesterday)

Post a couple more fit flicks will ya already?
My big debate is between these and the 14oz 888. The measurements are super close in a 33 except for the waist which comes up small in the RE denim. I would hate to size up to a 34 because I think this cut would have too much denim at the hip. I’d hate to end up with more of a MF cut (not a bad thing but I have them already). Also still sorting out the inseam for sneakers.  Hopefully will have a pair of something on the way by the end of the weekend.

I think your instinct is good to not size up. Smaller waist is also a good thing, as these sit pretty high because of the rise. I could’ve sized down to 34 if I wanted a snug fit, but I looove how comfy these are, and I like wearing a belt, anyway. Also, despite neph’s recommendations about the cut, I didn’t hem shorter than normal to get a good break, and am back to my usual cuff. Here’s some goofy pics, cuz you asked so nicely
