Welcome @jordanscollected !  I don't remember seeing you in the 888 threads before.  Am I just blind or did you switch cuts?

You are not blind @Paul9221 this is the first pair of 888’s I have owned. A long story I’ll make shorter.

My first pair of IH’s I tried on were the 888 world tours and fit me perfectly. I got my first 2 pairs of IH pants I have owned myself as gifts when I provided list of “wants” to my wife. The 888s were in the list but I got the Loombreakers and the No Lots instead.

This most recent list included both new 18oz shirts. (292 and 293 and the 888xhs) and this begins my 888 pants life.

Boom

(I didn’t shorten the story much).

Good story!  I like the part with the denim :D

292, 293, and 888 are such a steller trio!  The 292 & 293 and the 177 & 178 before them are some of my absolute favorite "shirts"!

Happy to see you in the 888 camp!

Day 1. got a bit hot on a walk, but I've recovered.

I do want to say that these are much easier to wear straight out of the bag than i expected. Pretty soft and pliable for the heft. Great jeans and will make for an excellent fall into winter add to the wardrobe

Thanks @zhivago I'm feeling pretty badass today.

I get new gear a lot less than many on this forum, so this is a huge couple pickups for me.

...@jordanscollected a lot of room to maneuver in those 888's if you know what I mean! :D Very comfy they will be! :)

@BD81 i sized a 35 waist (hemmed to 34"). I've got a few extra lb's on me and I was too big of a wuss to fight through a 34. These are snug but it's just day 1. They'll stretch for me. 

Thanks @vaquero357. they do have some extra room. super smart tapered jean that doesn't look skinny or baggy

They look real good on your first wear Jeff. Good call on the sizing. The 888 looks good on you.
