Picked a pair of these up today at Rivet and Hide...size 36. With a bit of stretch in the waist With wear they will fit perfectly

That is probs the best fitting pair of jeans I’ve seen on you @Stuart.T. Imho, of course. Brilliant!

Thanks @neph93 @Dion 888 were the 2nd IH jeans I ever bought, but I bought a size too large and the waist was way too big when it stretched out so I sold them on. I've stuck with 555 ever since.

As these are intended as a summer Jean, the extra leg room wad preferable for me. I tried the 14oz 555 today as well, they fit well, with a higher rise than any of my other 555..

This 14oz initially feels heavier than my 16oz vintage denim. I love how papery and crisp it is at the moment. I'm going to go against my usual rules and wear these for a couple of months before I soak them. If I soaked them now I don't think I'd ever be able to do up the top button again.

I think I might need a type III in this denim too, but I'll live with these for a while first.

Just got these in while I was on vacation and I’m giving them a run today. MY GOODNESS! This denim feels amazing; it feels more substantial than 14oz.

@Jordanxbuffer my thoughts exactly. This definitely feels more substantial to the touch than my 16oz vintage 555s. I haven't soaked them yet as I want to stretch them with a few weeks of wear.

It's a very dark indigo too, so I'm hoping for some high contrast fades.

I picked up a pair of 777S-142’s with the intention of those being the denim I wore on the hottest days of summer, but after comparing the 142 denim with the 16oz Vintage denim, I think the 16oz wins in that regard. I love the 142 denim regardless, but I think my 16oz 666’s will be my hot-weather jeans and I’ll wear the 777’s when the temperature is below 90 degrees Fahrenheit.

Wow. Does this 14oz ever stretch?? I bought a snug fitting waist in the hope of an inch stretch, give or take a couple of 8's. I've worn them for a few days now  and no stretch yet. Ive chosen not to soak them yet either, as that might render them unwearably until they have a presoak stretch.

Idk. I have to size up for thighs so I’ll trade you for the tighter waist. Lol.

I noticed the same thing on my 777’s, I don’t think I’ve gotten much stretch with those either. The waist is still snug after several wears, it’s manageable but I probably could have sized up one. I just assumed there would be a pretty reasonable amount of stretch.

I've always wanted to own a pair of jeans that I never wash. This may be that pair. I like the idea of seeing every bit of living on them.

Do it. I’ll be sending mine in for a waist reduction shortly due to my size up. Are yours crocking a lot?

Problem with not washing a pair ever,  is unless you really don't get a fuck about wearing filthy jeans you kinda end up babying them.

I’ve loved washing my UHR; they become more alive with each wash.
