Yes. More so on the weft side but on it can be felt on the deepest part of the line on the warp side.

You'll likely get some sort of uneven fade there with time if the face of the fabric is higher or lower in that place that on the rest of the denim...

That's what I figured. Guess I'll find out soon enough.

I feel I ought to know the answer to my own question but I don’t even after 3 and a half years after buying my first IH pair of jeans. So, for the forum members more observant and smarter than I...

Which IH cut is most similar to the Self Edge 633 cut?

The slight differences in how IHUK and SE measure jeans adds to my confusion as even a slight 0.2 inch difference in thigh width means a whole lot in the comfort department. At this point I’m thinking that the three “closest” cuts to the 633 are 666, 777 and 888. With the main differences between them being: 666 is narrower at the thigh; 777 is more strongly tapered from the thigh all the way down to the hem; and 888 having a higher rise. I’m only drawing these conclusion based on owning one pair of 666 and one pair of 888...and also a single pair of 633. So not based on much, really.

As I’ve noted before, so far my most comfortable cut is the 633 but I want to get the most similar IH proprietary cut firmly figured out. Nailing this will give me quite a few more fabric options, especially urgent in light of the recently announced incoming ones. Therefore, telling me to stick to the 633 won’t be enough guys.
The journey is the objective.

As far as I know, 633 is just a tapered 634. The rise and thigh measurements certainly bear the most resemblance between those two.

I think that @sabergirl is correct that the for the 633 SE asked Haraki-san to put a stronger taper in the 634. So from above the knee and up they are the same.

When @Giles and @Megatron1505 dreamt up the 888 they also started with the 634 in mind. The major difference between the 633 and 888, apart from the rise, is that the taper in the 888 starts at the top of thigh rather than just above the knee.

So it depends what area you’re interested in. The closest cut when it comes to top block and thigh is the 634. When it comes to leg silhouette and taper it is the 888.

Hello i'm new to the forum so still trying to work out how to navigate things and i have no idea how to start a new topic ?
so having bought tried and very sadly sold Wesco custom harness boots despite being VERY impressed with the quality i have been searching in vain ever since for ...... well ....... them very same boots but rather how they look in pictures rather than how they look on my feet .

I'm in the UK so "quality" means i have to buy from America just to try them on .

Its taken me a while to work out what went wrong for me regarding the Wesco and it became clear when i decided to tear the heel off my Grinders boots replacing it with a home made wooden block so i could add a heavy lug vibram sole (cheap copy wesco's) .

Seem's to me the vibram sole used by Wesco and White's Freedom boots (my second choice) dictates a wide square toe and what i seek without success is a narrow square toe . A tough hard wearing all day every day whether mudplugging , going to a wedding , bikers cowboy/engineer boot .

Pics will explain it better when and if i can work out how to do it on the mrs ipad .

Thanks for your replies @sabergirl and @neph93 . I want to keep the same rise as the 634, same thigh as the 634 and some taper from the knee down. That lands me squarely in 633 territory. You two confirmed my suspicion that I’m held hostage by Self Edge. I’ll just root for SE to expand its IH jean options.

How about the same question on the chino front? Which chino cut do you find most akin to the 633?  Have you tried any IH chinos?

I did have a 717 for a while, and they were a different animal altogether, though I liked the fit. I love my duck 816, and wish that there were a tapered version in denim—would become an instant favorite. 816 has a lower front rise, paired with a higher back, which is what I like about the fit.
