I just realized I haven’t posted in the actual thread for these, yet! Here’s some measurements, I took. I will say, thigh is usually my most problematic area, and I usually have to get at least 13.5” thigh, for comfort. There is enough stretch in the denim that I don’t feel squished by these, and the range of movement is tops!

Here’s the measurements of my size 36, the IH way, before wearing:

Waist: 18.25”
Front rise: 11.5”
Rear rise: 16.25”
Thigh: 13.25”
Knee: 8.5”
Hem: 8”

Alrighty, here’s today’s measurements after about 20 wears, no washes:

Waist: 18.5”
Front rise: 11.5”
Back rise: 16.75”
Thigh: 13.25”
Knee: 8.5”

So, if my measurements were taken well both times, we’re looking at only about 1/4” of stretch in the waist and 1/2” in the back rise. Surprisingly, no stretch in the thigh or knee.

I can’t stress enough how much I love these! Favorite pair of jeans in a loooong time.

Thanks, Ruben! The TIE is a lego kit, as is the Star Destroyer that you can just see the back of on the lower shelf.

Glorious. My 16-year old Noah still has an x-wing and y-wing that we built together about 10years ago in his bedroom, intact. We also have a special edition oversized BB-8 display kit that we built for old times sakes four years ago.

How nice that you and your son shared that. I always got Legos for birthdays and Hanukkah/Christmas, growing up. When my parents sold my childhood home and moved a couple years back, my Mom and I had a blast sorting the huge bins of Legos that my sister and I have amassed over the years. We put together all of the sets with instruction booklets, and gave most of them to my nieces. I kept the rest.

I have a pretty wide ranging collection of toys, but by far the most represented is Star Wars, followed closely by Lego. I also really like to get toys as gifts, so family and friends tend to know what’s a sure bet, lol.

Quick question: how is the stretch in the thighs? I'm thinking of getting a pair of these to replace my five/six year old 634s but the thighs might be a little snug for me.

@DougNg I posted some measurements a few posts above, if you’re curious.

 I will say, thigh is my most problematic area, and I usually have to get at least 13.5” thigh, for comfort. There is enough stretch in the denim that I don’t feel squished by these, and the range of movement is tops! I asked for the roomiest thigh they had, and it’s measuring at 13.25 for my size 36.

I got a pair of these a few months back.  I ordered direct from Ignition works before IHUK had them, so it took me a while to find someone to hem them.

quick review:

  The denim itself is great.  Feels true to IH but the bit of stretch is really great.  It's not super stretchy but just enough to make them easy to move around in.

Fit wise.... I'd say they're something like a 555 with a higher rise.  Personally... I'd prefer if the upper thigh had a tiny bit more width.  I feel like it's just a tiny bit too skinny for me... but that's just my personal taste.  If they were more like a 301 with a higher rise they'd be the perfect cut for me.

if you were on the fence about them and like the 555 but want a bit more movement then they're the jean for you.
PUT DOWN THAT STARBUCKS, PICK UP THAT GNARBUCKS!!

I’m dismal at taking pics, but here’s a funny one that my wife took on our afternoon walk, today:
There’s an historic cemetery in our neighborhood that has graves from throughout the 19th century, and inexplicably a tree-stump privy?
