I also like the J1 Chicago Low. Classy footwear.

sick! 

how is the stretch on these?

Thanks! Definitely some stretch, nowhere near as much as my 21oz OD.

Thanks buddy, good eye. Only problem with raw denim is I can’t break out my fav footwear until I’m positive they won’t turn blue.

I haven’t had much and it’s the most frustrating thing for me.

No personal insight but I’d imagine they fit quite differently. My understanding of the 633 is that it is the 634 with taper from the knee. In which case the top block on the 888 will be markedly different (much higher rise, wider over the hip), and the taper on the 888 starts well above the knee.

Did anyone give their denim an initial soak in water before wear?

I've been wearing my denim for about a month. I never gave them an initial soak. The denim isn't as stiff as it once was but I'm a bit impatient for them to loosen up even more. On one hand I'd kind of like to give them a soak so that they will loosen up. On the other hand I don't want to lose the heavy indigo on the surface of the denim.

Any thoughts?

Water alone won’t make the fabric any softer. In fact you may find it makes them crispy again. Movement, agitation, stretching, and twisting is what loosens the denim.

A wash in a machine with spin and tumble drying are short cuts to broken in jeans. They are also shorts cuts to early indigo loss, and possibly ugly marks. I wouldn’t recommend it.

Your best bet is to keep wearing them, as much as possible, for as many activities as possible.

Soaking them before wear is pointless, we have already one-washed them.
As Neph says, washing them will not make them softer
Washing them gently will cause very little indigo loss. Case in point, we beat the shit out of them in our one-wash.  What causes indigo loss is abrasion, not washing.

Looks like it @p194 Of course if that is mud, some folks would let it dry and brush it off rather than washing... I am definitely not one of those people . Looking forward to seeing them post wash.
