Would you guys say there's a lot of variation between pairs in same tag size, or did they come out fairly uniform?

currently im leaning towards at 34 tag size, as i'll need to stretch it out still, but not by much.

Two things that may sway your thinking.

1. The 25oz will stretch but slowly. And even a pair that fits out of the bag are bastards to get on and off the first week,(totally worth it in the end).

2. There’ll be shrinkage. Not UHR, 18oz shrinkage, but more than you get with sanforised denim otherwise. Check the regular XHS threads and product pages for deets.

@brobles

There is some variation but not substantial - any specific requests we'll be happy to find the best of what we have if you need a particular spec in a certain area. (Email these to us or leave notes in orders if possible).

Echoing what @neph93 said, these are pretty tough and a pig to get on and off to begin with. They're pretty snug in the thigh - as can be expected with a slim fitting jean. I would trust your measurements and if you're unsure, err on the side of caution and give yourself a touch more room if possible without going too large in the waist.
The devil is in the detail..

Does anyone know what size "Sam" wears? He and I pretty much always wear the same size.. I'm curious if he would go with a 31 or 32 in these.. 

thanks

I was thinking back and I distinctly remember Giles saying that they would never do a 25oz 555. So I guess these are kind of a big deal.

I couldn't find the exact post here, but I did remember this one on reddit.

It's cool they finally figured out a way to do these.

Good point. That reminds of the thread about making a 25oz jacket. While we don’t have one there is a 25oz vest. That’s why IH amaze me with each product offered. There is always an element of pushing the boundary a little bit further.

Been thinking about that too. And it might not be my place to say. But the sleeves problem could possibly be solved by incorporating a gusset into the underarm area.

The gusset part could be a lightweight indigo chambray or something.

I have a motorcycle specific denim riding jacket,and while it’s not 25OZ denim it does have the underarm gusset to make it more comfortable while riding.

Things and hem aren’t small on 555 compare to my 777 fit. Only thing I liked in 555 is high rise

Being a big fan of the XHS, I have 634 in sizes 30" and 31" both  a size or two to big now that I have lost weight. I also have them in 634XHS-od in size 30 one size or 2 to big. In addition I have 777 XHS in size 30" a size to big and 666 XHS in size 29" also a size to big, I have PIH5DCT in size 31" come off without opening any of the buttons. My only 555 is the SBG 03 In size 30" the waist is baggy big by at least 2 sizes but fits better on the leg. Torn between getting the XHS-ib 555 in either a large 28" or a small 29". Really don't have a single IH that fits me just right at the moment and don't want to mess this up. Would anyone with a bit more experience like to weigh with any tips. All my IH jeans are dry and have not been washed or soaked, so no shrinkage.  What should I do? Any help would be much appreciated, thanks in advance.
