It's possible to request the largest or smallest available of a particular size, correct?

You can ask the crew to try and and find a pair that varies one way or another, but there are no  certainties «that pair» will exist. They could all be pretty similar or with very small variations.

However based on what you write it seems you haven’t factored in stretch. If a target waist of 33” is desirable, then you really want a pair that starts at 32.2”. They will stretch about an inch.

One more thing, do you know for sure that 33”
is what you need?The only way to know for sure is to measure a pair of jeans you own and wear, using the same measuring method as IH. Take that measurement, minus 0.75-1” and get a pair around that size.
I have factored in stretch to an extent. I was thinking 33.5-34" to be ideal post stretch for me. But I admit that I am quite new to this stuff. It's possible that the 32.2" would work out fine after quite a bit of initial discomfort. The pairs I have now all started out close to 33". I'd be a little concerned about just how much a tighter pair is pressing into my gut when sitting all day at work.

I measured a few pairs before ordering my first nicer denim only a month back. So I have some idea of what works for me but certainly lacking experience overall.

I'll have to ask the IH crew for some more advice should I decide to get a pair now or in the future.

Ah I misunderstood. In that case I think going from 32” to 34” would be a bit much to ask for. The SBG is tough stuff, and not easy to work with.
Get ahead, go figure, go ahead and pull the trigger,

Question for those who also wear the 777’s:

Should I size up from the 777 if I’m more dad bod than slim and trim.  I know these rest higher up than the 777’s.

Sounds like you're exactly the same size as me. I'd also ideally end up with a 33.5" - 34" waist after stretch. The leg (thigh/knee/hem) look closer to ideal for me on a 32, but bigger wouldn't be the end of the world. I just ordered a 33 and asked for a small pair, on the basis that if it's slightly large I just end up with a more relaxed fit, instead of too small where I'd end up with uncomfortable jeans that I'd probably wear less often. Maybe the 32 might have ended up a better fit, but 33 is safer.

One other thing it's worth noting if you haven't already though is that for me (and I guess others) the higher rise on these means I could probably get away with a slightly smaller waist than on other lower rise jeans, since I go in quite a bit at the waist. May or may not make a difference depending on which jeans you're comparing to and how you're shaped.

This is very useful information for me. Thank you.

My true waist is about 32". Upper hips where all my mid rise pants sit are about 33". Not a whole lot of difference but it could be enough to change my size on some pants. I honestly have never owned a high rise pair to say for sure. I also haven't purchased a 555 before so it's probably not a bad idea to measure the front and back rise on my current pairs and see how they might compare.

Normally I would say go for the same tag size, but as these have been washed and look a little closer to their expected chart measurements than previous runs, I would say sizing up could be the right decision

Damn. The 555-03 were my all-time favorite jeans but these will never work for me unless I can find a real outlier in the waist. Wish I'd bought a backup now.

I was planing on getting the stretch denim as my own jean purchase this year but I have lusted after these for so long now I just don't know.

Size up to a 33 and put them straight to work?....

Me too! Was definitely toying with the idea of trying a pair of the stretch, and hell, i still may, but i've been searching for a pair of black denim and these fit the bill :P

The measurements looks interesting to me, but what would it mean to order and get it shipped over to EU? Only UK stockists carry this model.

Until we sort EU shipments out, we cant ship to Europe, we are effectively making a loss on every shipment, which is why you cant order.  We will get it fixed, but it will take time.
