I think you’re right to go down on waist size. That is my experience with the 888 (I’ve actually gone down two sizes strictly speaking, as I take 35” as a preference in 666 or 555 and find 33” in the 888 often works.

The high rise takes a little getting used to, but I love it now. It’s effect is minimised with wear however as the front of the top block starts creasing.

Can’t help with the fabric as I don’t have this denim. Soz.

I’m so curious how these will fade over the long haul.  Another poster stated that they felt great right off the bat, but do any owners notice a difference in softness with the Eco denim vs. the non recycled jeans.  Correct me if I’m wrong, but wouldn’t the shorter recycled fibers make these less soft and comfortable?

I cant speak to the long term fading but mine are already showing off some beautiful electric blues. They are plenty soft and very comfortable

Received a pair of tag size 33 yesterday. As this cut is an unknown quantity to me, especially the high rise, my size selection was a bit of a shot in the dark. Every dimension is pretty much spot on for me, except for the waist which is causing concern. I never felt I had a fat gut, but these jeans are making me reconsider! The top button does up quite easily, but it’s causing a bit of belly and love handle overhang. Beautiful! It’s not loads, and isn’t noticeable under a T-shirt (I believe)

I’m anticipating about an inch of stretch to the material, which would definitely make them fit better around the waist. I don’t think the slight overhang will be completely gone tho. If I were to size up (which isn’t possible as 34 is out of stock) I think the other dimensions would be less favourable.

So, my question for guys who own this cut but maybe have a bit of excess padding around the gut, how do you size this area? Is this cut only for guys with rock-hard stomachs?

I can (reluctantly) post photos of the fit around my gut if needed :'(

Here’s some fit images. Please forgive both the quality, and the graphic display of dad stomach. What do you guys think? Keep or return?

I think you just need to allow for some stretch and get used to the higher rise.

That looks exactly as it should. Wear them in and you‘ll be golden.

Two things will happen, not only will the waist stretch, lessening the tight waistband, but the front of the top block will crease and bunch (in a good way) causing them jeans to sit slightly lower.

For me this is a very good starting fit for the 888 and what I’d be aiming for on a new pair.

I had some major muffin-top issues with my pair. I guess I could have worn them with the top button or two undone but, in the end, decided the cut wasn't for me. Ultimately, it will depend on your level of comfort.

Thanks for the helpful responses guys. @neph93 , you’ve convinced me to keep them and see how they settle in. Not that I needed too much convincing as I bloody love the fabric. Also, the reasonable price plus a gift voucher I’d forgotten about made these an absolute steal, so I really wanted them to work! Once these get beaten up I’ll post some more pics, and will branch out into more IH denims. Into the wormhole I go...

Im the king of slow fades but my pair is finally starting to show some change. This denim molds really well despite being such a light weight so I might get some decent combs which I never seem to get. I’m pretty excited to see them by the end of spring.
