@sabergirl @Paul9221 they do look big in the photos. The waist isn’t too big though. They are a 36 and the 34’s would be too small for me for sure. I’ve only cold soaked them so maybe I should give them a hot soak and see if that helps at all.
I am/was in the same boat. 34s would have been to small, 36 unsoaked were pretty big. I hot soaked and they are pretty spot on now

Keep us posted how the hot soak goes

These are sized exactly the same out of the box as the 888UHRs I own... which fit beautifully (aside from the weird extra fabric at the hip).  Do these shrink much?  Do I need more room considering the even thicker fabric?  Can I justify the best part of $500 on a pair of jeans?  ???

The only question I can answer difinitively is the last one: yes, these are that good.
I put on my pants the same way you do, I just put on better pants.

@neph93 looks like those fit perfect

Thanks gents. I’m getting the hang of the 888. While I’m happy enough with my other pairs, I feel like I nailed it with these.

Hip flare is part of the 888 experience I think. I’ve learnt to love it.

Lots of folks have documented shrinkage earlier in the thread, myself included. Have a look for the details.  It seems a fairly uniform .5” can be expected in the waist, possibly a little more in length. The bottom line is that they’ll stretch to a a little over pre-soak measurements in the waist and thigh.

You don’t need more room because it is heavier. The difference that makes is immaterial (pun intended).

The last bit is up to you but I’m inclined to agree with @tvenuto

@neph93 nice fit man

Cheers, buddy. Your excellent work with the sample pair is at least partially to blame for me owning these ;)

^ wow that feels like a loose fit.. i think 888 is for big guy with big tigh, maybe ? And those doesn’t fit better for small-size guy, but you can wear them always to get big Whiskers and honeycombs fade!!!!  :) :)

@neph93 good fit. I think sizing down was a good choice for you.

Re: hip flare, it's the one thing I have a hard time with in this cut. To me, the 888 is completely different to the 634 - it's far more than a 634 with a higher rise and more tapered lower leg (as originally described, I believe). The hips are much wider. What works so well for me in the 634 is the transition from hips to thigh is very smooth and straight. The 888 have some flair. Almost anti-fit, in a way. That may make for a more comfortable {read: roomy} fit and better range of motion.

@Zein1505 I wouldn't say this cut is for bigger guys with big thighs only. If you're a slim guy and usually take a smaller size, 28-30, these are proportionally smaller in that range. I wouldn't call these a lifter's cut with large thigh measurements by any means. There are other jeans out there, including the 1955, that have larger thighs. I would call these "average" thigh measurements. This cut is also very good for sizing down 1, due to the higher rise. i.e. if you like a size 30 in the 555, you could prolly go with a 29 in the 888.

I'm very pleased to report that my jeans feel super-soft and comfy already. They seem to be fading very fast too. I'll say it again: they are an absolute masterpiece, a Godsend. I am very grateful for them. I feel so lucky to have them.

God help me if they make these in a 666 or 777 cut. I’m trying to convince myself that the 14oz version in the 777 cut will scratch this itch, luckily so far my temptation is severely tempered by the lack of cuts that suit me in this denim.

@Filthy if you could kindly stfu about how great this denim is if and when the dreaded 666/777 cut is released, that would be fantastic.  :D
