So... Are these pants more comfortable is you're a bigger guy with a bit of a gut?  Initially I had thought so but now I'm not sure, especially if the pants are more-so suppose to be sitting atop my stomach.  Think that would get uncomfortable.

The added room can add some comfort to those with a more portly stomach area, alternatively, the 777 can work as the rise sits bellow the gut, but sometimes that can lead to a builders crack situation

For me, yes.  I've gained a bit of weight over the years but used to be an avid cyclist and skateboarder before that.  I've always had larger than average thighs and these are the only model now that fit me well.  I think the higher rise is actually nice.  I don't feel that it's uncomfortable.  But, if you get a pair that doesn't fit well, then no matter what they'll be uncomfortable. ;)  As mentioned, the 777 can fit well if you have less meat on your thighs.  For me that model is less comfortable.  YMMV

What about the 555s? 

I was trying on the 888s, in a size 36, I had recently purchased.  Wife thought that a skinnier jean might look more flattering on me.  She might be right.  The rear rise on the 555s are nearly the same and the front rise just a tad shorter.  Just never really thought to order slim jeans given my midsection weight.  Does anyone have thoughts?

Depends. Could you do the thighs? The 555 is quite generous in the top block, roomier than the 888, However the thigh starts slim and tapers hard to the knees. If you can manage the thighs, then why not?

A few months, this is one of about 50 things we urgently need to run.  Given the factories only have limited production capacity, we are trying to sort out the best scheduling.....

I picked up a pair of these the other day from someone who told me they were brand new and never washed

Is there a way to tell if these have been washed?

This is my first pair of iron hearts.... My other raw jeans seem more stiff?

Makes no difference, we have already one-washed them anyway...

No need to be. The idea that a wash fixes the indigo is a bit of a myth.

That being said, from your photos, those jeans look super crispy and clean. In other words, brand spanking new.

Will these be back in stock anytime soon? I’m looking for a 38 waist.
