Fit check
« on: January 15, 2022, 12:26:01 am »
I recently picked up my first pair of IH denim, the 21 oz 555 in indigo OD, & needed a fit check. The waist is perfect, tight but not uncomfortable. I couldn’t button them at first but they button now. From the knee down fits great too. But the thigh-knee area looks a little tight to me. I’m wondering if I should stick with these and wait for the thighs and everything else to stretch with wear. I could also size up or get the 777. If I sized up they might be too roomy in the top block though"5A714296-D79C-41C1-B8C5-91B5E69893C4.jpeg""2003D58B-7707-4386-8BC4-ACE49F84DBE8.jpeg"

Kind of hard to tell, the pics are a little dark on my phone. Did you got TTS or size down? From what I can see they look good but the thigh does look snug.

Agreed that it's hard to tell with that lighting. Depends on how tight you like your jeans, too.  My are-the-knees-too-tight test involves riding a bike.  If you can ride a bike in them, they're not too tight.
Blanket-line all the things!!!

I’m a 30 W in other pants. I ended up going with a 29 W because the actual waist size is about 29.8 inches and I didn’t want them being too loose in the waist after breaking in. The 30 W has an actual waist measurement of 31.1 so I didn’t want to jump up 1.3 inches in the waist going from 29-30. After wearing them all afternoon they’ve started breaking in a bit and are easier to button and a little looser in the waist, haven’t noticed a significant difference in the thigh yet. The taper is perfect from the knee down for me, and the waist is perfect as well

I will have to try that bike test tomorrow. I can squat comfortably in them and have full range of motion. I only wore them for a few hours after pics were taken, but they seem a bit more relaxed. I will try to upload more in better lighting

You’re too far away / too small to really get an idea of how they fit.

@Rockett if you can squat in them without significant discomfort you’re probably fine, it’s just a matter of whether you’re happy with how they look…
