any ideas how to break them in though?

Wear them. There are no short cuts.

There are however tips and tricks. Example. One should not wear them for the first time and on a drinking binge or “bright idea” convenience store sushi outing. Less one wishes to wash them right off the bat.  ask one how they know.

ok its been about a month now and with fairly frequent wear they are starting to mold to my body, they are literally like putting on body armor.these jeans are reminiscent of very heavy starch jeans worn by the rodeo guys out here in Texas! If you are a clothing affectionado, then you must own at least one pair, they are like nothing else in your clothes closet. Been complemented several times and for tall people that cannot find their length, these definitely do the trick.

^ nice write up. I suspect Haraki-san would enjoy the rodeo jean comparison. You’ll be amazed by the difference a few more months down the line.

Thanks @Giles . I signed up the other day but I just couldn't stop thinking about how sweet these jeans are.

Well they say that time loves a hero but only time will tell. 

I've been holding out on washing the 666XHS, wearing them a lot, realizing that this could take awhile. Finally the buttons don't leave me crippled for a week. But today I had to give them a good soak because I could hear my dear mother's voice from a distant past reminding me of the difference between pretending to be a hobo and looking like one.  And then I was reminded how washing 25oz jeans may well leave them crisper, stiffer than they were, by a lot.  Not much fade, really none I could detect.  But surely a bit cleaner.  We're back to our usual three seasons of winter here in western New York so it's a good time for 25s.  The current pair are about a year old and have seen plenty of days but this could really take a while...  I'm firmly convinced that they are going to outlast me.

My pair are getting on a bit now. About four years old I think, with around 250-300 days wear all told. We are well into that season here but mine have been recently washed and are in for repairs, so I’m missing them.

The point being, you’re right, it does take time but the next chance I get I’ll show you the payoff.

This morning I was pulling the washed pants, now dried on the rack, back to outside because I washed them inside out.  As I was doing this, my wife entered and was watching me and she said, "You definitely do not have a vagina."  She went on, "If you had a vagina those would be just too stiff."  I replied, "Well you do like other stiff things..."  You can imagine where it went from there.  Hehe...
