@cricca I’ve seen tighter 555 fits.

I agree with @Anesthetist that sizing up would be a bad move. The top block on these fits you perfectly and a bigger top block plus stretch will leave you deeply unsatisfied.

I’d say you have three options:

1. stick with them. They look slim for sure, but they look good too. While thigh stretch is minimal, they will relax quite a bit after a couple of weeks wear.

2. Look at other iterations of the 555. Some have slightly larger measurements at the same tag size.

3. Try the 777. Smaller top block and lower rise than the 555, but more room in the thigh and knee.
Get ahead, go figure, go ahead and pull the trigger,
Everything under the gun.

Can't comment on this cut as I have large thighs and only ever bought and wore 1955, 634 and 888.

However, my experience is that if you're unhappy with the thighs (e.g. if the thigh area doesn't feel or look right because it's too tight), you won't feel almost any differently about them when you've broken them in.

Thus, if the waist feels right but the thighs don't, you need a different cut or the same cut but with different measurements that suit you better. Also, how you feel when you wear your clothes matters more than how you look in them.

@cityofdelusion This one’s for you. It’s really important that my clothes look good/a certain way,but If I’m not comfortable,I’m not going to wear them.

I think I'll have to return them. I've got a pair of 555-xhs and they're not as tight as these. I feel that my legs are too skinny as they are. With a jacket on I would not feel comfortable :) .
In general, do you think I should size up in 777 compared to 555?

Measurements are more important than tag size. On the IHUK website there is «Compare» function. Run that with your IH-555-SBG’s and whatever 777 model you fancy. Find the 777’s that match the waist of your 555’s and make sure the thigh and knee on the 777’s is bigger.

If I compare 555-xhs to 555s-sbg, size 31 in xhs equals size 32 in sbg, but sbg are one washed. Haha jebus, this is not easy

@cricca I,personally,really like the way the jeans look on you,and I think over time they’ll look even better. My question is what kind of footwear would you be wearing with these,as they look pretty tight in the hem area.

I live in Sweden so, Dr Martens boots in the winter, i guess :)
otherwise, "slim" Vans or whatever.

But the thing is, my legs are so skinny, I should not wear jeans that look THAT skinny. As i wrote, my XHS dos not have that look at all .

Size 32 or XHSbb, but another 100 Euros... I dont know ???

If I compare 555-xhs to 555s-sbg, size 31 in xhs equals size 32 in sbg, but sbg are one washed.

This is for a number of reasons, the two main ones being that XHS shrinks, so will be closer to the W31 SBG after a wash, but also due to the nature of the denim, thicker denim, fatter seams, give bigger external measurements.

Regarding W32 SBG, consider the waist on your size 31’s, then add two inches (one for sizing up, one for stretch). Will they be too big?

I guess they will be a bit big but I can live with that.
But now I'm also starting to consider the XHSbb ...
Which is your favourite model?

"iu.gif"

I've been buying IH jeans for over eight years and as well as being someone who likes nice clothes I'm also a bit of a geek. I've lost count of how many pairs I've tried. I've tried all the cuts and most of the denims, including both cuts and denims that aren't available any more.

At the moment I am embracing straight cuts. The 634, work pants, the 666 (when I can make the thigh work). Before that I was a huge fan of the 888. I started with the 555 though, but I am too thicc to wear it with comfort.

It should be said that I am a very different build to you.

If the XHSbb is a similar size to your XHS then you know they'll work so that is a good bet, worth the extra $$$. That being said, imho the 666 looks amazing on tall slim folks, but it is a slim straight cut though. If your preference is for tapered then you may not enjoy it.

ok :) I like the high rise on the 555... and that they are slimmer then 666

Below the thigh they are slimmer due to the taper. The top block and top of the thigh on the 666 are slimmer than the 555. From knee to hem they are wider.

yeah, I had a pair of 666s-21. Did not use them for 10 months since I bought the 555xhs. Then I had to use them once and could not believe that I wore those before buying the 555  ::)
