The strange part is that I ordered the 21oz OD in a 555 cut and they fit amazing! That puzzles me allot.


Not need to be puzzled.


The 21oz OD and 25oz are entirely different denims. The 21oz is very forgiving, especially when OD’ed, it will not shrink and has a lot of strech in it due the nature of the weave. The 25oz is rigid, not fully sanforised, and a lot stiffer.

In addition, the same cut in different denims will not have exactly the same dimensions.

I’ve been wearing them for a month already so not sure if they will stretch out beyond this. Totally puzzled.

25oz is specialist denim. It takes a long time to break in. There won’t be any more stretch. I’d
imagine you’d be happier and more comfortable in a size up.
Great views / thanks. Sizing up probably could do. I’ll wait for a while and try them in store/ I hope to make it to Self Edge in NYC at some point soon.

555 cut is a super slim cut so more then often unless you size up will be a snug fit in the thigh all I wear is 555’s I’ve got 6 pairs some are tighter then other 555s-21 being the tightest and my UHR’s I’m sampling being a bit more roomier. If your happy with the cut and the look keep rocking it.

I wore my 555XHS probably for a week or so before I soaked them in the tub and put them on damp which was a struggle just had the top buttons undone.

After a day or so they go back to the stage your at now.

Here’s my XHSib I wore for 6months before I soaked them definitely wouldn’t recommend doing that as breaking them in was brutal .
I’m 6ft 1” 12 stone .

Mate they look awesome! So you reckon I should soak them (I’ve been wearing them for a month already)?

Yours look tight on thighs also …

That’s the cut of the jeans tight on the thigh unless you size up  I love the look of the 555 so I’ve stuck to that cut.
Yeh soak them get the shrink out and wear the heck out of them 25oz XHS fades look incredible

Decided to keep them dry for a while (25oz 555). They are getting softer and softer and first blue amazing fades coming out. Scared to soak them - if this is the price to pay to keep them fit, I’ll never wash them. The black shirt is IHS 18oz OD - dam this is an amazing shirt! IH Rulz!
