@Steve @Giles Can you give us your initial impressions of this denim?  Fabric hand and breathability.

It looks like it is going to be fantastic addition to the lineup.

@goosehd Had it on yesterday afternoon, and on again today, first impression - love the weight of it, really comfortable and will be perfect for the spring/summer months. I have the IHJ-71, which is 18oz, so will be good to compare over time

Over-engineered is my starting point....

Not sure about the other cuts, but my 666 have taped pocket openings - nice touch.....

Wow turned out really nice, looks like a great fabric. Is this just sample phase, or will these be on sale soon?

Cool. I'm curious, how does sampling work? If the team can ever use an extra pair of legs I would be happy to volunteer!

@Alex checked the other 4 cuts.  Only the IH-666S-SLB have the taped pocket openings. 

I remember now, that when I specced the original IH-666S many moons ago, I specifically asked for taped pocket openings on them.....

I asked @Graham to check other 666 models. and they all have the taped pocket linings except the 21oz right and left-hand twills (both of which were initiated by Haraki).  So it looks like all 666 jeans initiated by us have inherited this feature.....

We need to sample just about everything we make.  To check dimensions, construction etc etc.

We like people who are actually going to wear the shit out of the samples and document progress, as per @neph93 with the SST's, otherwise, it's a complete waste of time.

I'll DM you....

Okay, slubby denim and IH over engineering?
Not since Nelson split the line of battle at Aboukir Bay to defeat Brueys d'Aigalliers or Mink DeVille did the Cadillac Walk has there been such excitement 'round this house.  Okay, so maybe those two things are not like the other thing but this stuff rocks my boat.

The 666 & 634 definitely have my interest. These look FANTASTIC.
