That is an excellent pre-soak fit.  Those are going to shrink down really well, I think.

Nice denim BF!

How does the sizing compare with IH raw denim? Have spotted a pair in my true size but not much info out in the ether on how the denim behaves.

Well they shrink from tag size. And they really shrink. I soaked them in quite cold water and they already lost 2". This is some "proper" unsanforized/loomstate denim so expect some major shrinkage :)
They do stretch though

and one more...

The search for my holy grail has finally found its end. 5 years after the Denime contest I found a pair of 66XX in size 36 in BNWT condition. As the Denime 66XX was my first real pair of Japanese jeans from a Japanese brand, it feels like coming home!

Thanks! And I am really happy. They stopped producing the 66XX in that form in 2009 or 2010 and they sold fast then...I am so glad I could finally pick up a pair in my right size. I own a size 34 from the Denime contest from 5 years ago but they shrank too much over time :D
