Thanks for responding to my question.

The pair I reference were in the size 8 realm.

Maybe I was mistaken & my use of the search function was correct in not finding anything.

Again, thanks for responding.

Good for you @DrBabyhorse great coming forward in this instance when you easily could of added the shirt to your collection & kept quite.

Good day IH forum,

I've been scouring the internets for metal cats eye type shirt buttons or cats eye dark buttons (black or blue).  If you happen to have a lead & it isn't too much trouble I would appreciate the assistance. 

Oh I need at least 13 buttons, my lady at my dry cleaners can not source them for me anymore  :'(

Thanks in advance

oh what happen with the shirt @DrBabyhorse

Do you know about the button district in NYC I think it's 6th Ave in the upper 30s. I used to work in that area and used to pass them all the time.

It wasn't a gift. :(

It's going to the rightful owner this afternoon.

@Giles is there any chance of there being an unsaforised denim in a larger size like 42-44? i wear a 40-42 and would need the larger size to account for the shrinkage. us "larger bodied mates" would love some RAW IH.
Cheers.

Of those, only the 666S is unsanforized.

As a rule of thumb, if we tag an unsanforised jean 40, that means it will be a 40 after washing.  You do not need to size up to account for shrinkage.....But I can't think of anything in the pipeline that will be unsanforised and tagged <40.......

Is the upcoming 25oz OD just in the 634 or is there a 666 coming later? I thought there was but can't remember.

matty123, im a bigger dude as well and owning 3 different IH denims / cuts would reccomend staying with the 634 line. pretty sure i have fit pics in the threads for the below pr's as well for reference.

ih666xhs - first pr and fit perfect except top button whic i typically leave undone (tmi???)
ih634s-b - second pr and i wear them as dress denims : ÜBER comfy
ihxb01xuhr - no longer made but my 2017 goto pr.

the xhs is the only pr i should have waited and got the 42 in 634 cut. but damn, the xhs is freakishly awesome and i wore them primarily for a year straight and in SA, Texas through the summer... 😀. no vag here 😉!  no Ragrets!!!

hope this was helpful.

All 666 models are essentially the same cut, derived from the same pattern. Variations between models are marginal and caused by differences in fabric amongst other things.

The website has a great Compare function that will show you how cuts differ from each other (eg. the difference between 634's and 666's) but also the differences between iterations of cuts (for example 666XHS and 666S).
