21/23

Are you guys still deciding on weight? I remember Giles mentioning they would be lighter, around 18oz.

No, the UHR denim is 21oz when raw and 23oz once soaked. There is another, lighter raw denim in the works too

I’ve been lucky enough to snag the 555 UHR sample. I received them yesterday opened them up after I finished work and they didn’t disappoint like anything IH produce is out of this world  incredible detail and craftsmanship is spot on.

Hoping to get the initial soak out the way this evening ready to start putting these through there paces tomorrow.

I’ll be logging hours/days worn
And posting updates on here along the way.

I’ll upload pre/post soak measurements tomorrow 😀

UHR is such an incredible denim.  Hoping for a pair of the 888's 🤞

Old vs New (sample)

Is that my old pair of IH-888-UHR? They look familiar…

What is the difference between the UHR and the XHS? Would be interested to know.

Weight, hand, weave, colour, shrinkage, evo… they’re as different as two pairs of five pocket indigo denim jeans can be.

With the initial soak out the way and Day 1 over and done with I can say these UHR feel incredible after wearing 555-XHSIB & XHS for the past 18 months which take some breaking in these feel comfortable
Fit feels quite similar to my 555s-SBG not as soft but pretty close.

Agreed, the fit looks close good!
Crazy to see some indigo fades peaking through already.
I'm as ugly as you
