@adam313  that is a great bit of near scholarly documentation and explanation. An erudite contribution to the finer issues of denim wear and evolution.

I think four months of heavy wear is a point by which many issues can start occuring. My big issue is the crotch and especially the area on the back rear directly behind the the overlapping crotch seams. Some cuts/denim combo’s which otherwise fit well, start developing holes already after two months. There is also a crease point on the front of the top block where I often get holes around the four month mark.

@Nskelton Holy cow how tall are you? It looks like your head is gonna hit the ceiling  ???

Joking around aside, if you are in between sizes a good tailor can usually bring in the waist of your jeans. Personally I've had pants (including jeans) brought in 1-2 inches (beyond this and they will look off) -- and I used to know someone who would get more intensive mod's on their jeans due to some crazy body proportions.

What color thread do you guys go with when hemming these?

They will have the same colour thread as used in the other constructional stitching as a default, but I believe the guys will also do other colours upon availability and request.

EDIT: On second thoughts maybe they use black as standard for OD hemming? I have a Gosport hemmed pair so I should know. Either way, you can choose from the selection available in Gosport.

By default the same as the constructional yarns, but we can do any colour you want.

The crew used black on black for my chainstitched hem 888 OD 21, there’s a top thread and a bottom thread so both are options. I’ve seen great looking examples of both. Yellow will be highlighted at the start but then match the other stitching (which is yellow but takes a bit of the overdye since it is poly/cotton) with time, while black is tonal at the beginning but will show once the denim starts to fade (blueish/greyish fabric with black stitching could look great I think, not unlike the blue on light blue on the 777’s or the new 19oz indigo black?). I chose the black to have both happening on one pair.

I've just remembered, we have a cone of this, for the more "adventurous" amongst you.  Usually just used as the bobbin thread....

Ah. Thinking of getting a pair of these. I have a pair of 555 -03 tag size 33, which fit really well both pre and post initial soak (but I’ve yet to wash them...), so wondering if I should get the 33 or the 34 in these, given there’s no shrinkage expected. I’ve a pair of 777 -14 tag 33, but I’m losing patience with them because even a year in, and two washes, the top block is too tight. Just put them on after the second wash and grrrrrrr...... LOL. I guess it’s the top block with me. Maybe I should wait for the 666S 21? Any advice welcome. Thanks.
