Thanks Joe M. That’s helpful. Good to see the different cuts side by side.

Yeah I had the same thought, @jmceachern, the side-by-side visual comparisons are very useful.

I think I might just be a little bit confused because the front rise, back rise, and thighs are all comparably smaller in the 666s for the slubby denim (in at least the size 36 and 38 where I'm looking) though I keep reading on the forum and IH site that it's the 555 that's suppose to be slimmer cut in the top block. I'd prefer whichever is roomier and that's looking like the 555s (and not the 666s) but that seems wrong because the 555s are said to be the slimmest cut jeans you've got.  Is there something I'm missing or not understanding?

@BrianA, I can't compare the 555S-SLB to the 666S-SLB, but my slubby 555s definitely have a more roomie top block than both of my non-slubby 666s.  The taper from the thighs down though is much greater in my 555s.

Top block refers to everything from the crotch seam and up. Everything that isn’t the legs. The top block on the 666 is the trimmest of all IH cuts. The rise is lower, the hip measurements (which IH don’t publish are smaller, and the seat is higher. The top block in the 555 is quite roomy. There is an fairly straight upwards taper
towards the waistband and a low-ish seat.

However the thigh measurements on the 555 and 666 are comparable. The difference is that the 555 takes that starting point and tapers harshly to the knee. Check out the difference between the knee dims in the 555 and 666 to illustrate. After that they both drop fairly straight to the hem.

Hope that helps. Do ask if anything was unclear.

So, any wear updates? Appreciate it hasn't been long, but looking at these as my next purchase as they'll probably last into early summer.

Another wash of my sample IH-666S-SLB.  About 7 or 8 months and approx 6 washes.

Cheers @Giles they look great. Now I've just got to decide between these or the IHSW-29 that I've just seen. Good dilemma to have.

IH Team - For summer temps, in your opinion, which would be more breathable - the 14oz with a double twisted weft or these 16oz slubs?  Thanks!

Can you say that the slubby is the most breathable/best summer denim of the IH denims?

Breathable yes but personally I get the heebie-jeebies when the texture mixes with sweat.
