I thought he was referring to the taper of the thigh compared to the 633. I realise it is a jump but that is what differentiates the thigh in my mind.

You’re right though, the original plan was for the 888 to have a thigh around about the 634, never wider. One of the early models came in slimmer, the cut took off sales wise and the rest is (fairly recent) history.

Interestingly, the IH-888-RE had considerably larger thighs (and didn’t sell that well), I wonder if it was closer to the originally intention, co-incidentally or otherwise?

When someone just says thigh, to me they're referring to the thigh measurement, either at the crotch seam, 2" down, whatever. And I've heard several guys refer to the 888 as having bigger thighs than the 634, so that's what I thought he meant.

I’m sure your right. It’s and examples of us filling in gaps with the things that preoccupy us.

There will be, but not many...

On that day, one year in that 888s. My favorite cut so far. Maybe not the most elegant shot, but you get the point!

Hey all!

Here's a 13-mo update to my 888s. 2 washes, tapered them down to 7.25in at the hem, hemmed to 28.5in.

Thanks for posting @pbdeng . 21oz is no joke. Easy to wear, rewarding to fade.

The 21oz fabric is certainly something special
