Measuring- Questions, Answers and Comments

how much difference would that make in terms of the fit..

Potententially quite a lot of difference I would say. I’m basing this on owning the 888 in two sizes (W34 and W35). The top block and especially leg silhouette are quite different to my eye. I also have the 666 in different sizes and the bigger pair looks more like a 634 on me.

I’m still happy with the bigger pairs, but they are different.

Edit: more relevant perhaps, I have the IH463-S in W34 and W36 the same difference is there. That is interesting though because the bigger pair give a silhouette that is much closer to what I assume was intended imho.

I can't say for everyone else. but for me, it's been the 666. that's my perfect fit that I've been used to for the past 4,5 years. so thinking of sizing 1 or even 2 up.

Is there a sizing guide for the IH-805? I need some clarification on the tag size to waist numbers.The tag size 36 is actually a 41"? If I wear a 36 IH-666S-21 would the 36 be the recommended size IH-805? Many thanks

I’d say that would depend on how you want them to fit. Look at the thigh and knee measurements to see how loose or tight tts or a size down will be. They’re supposed to be cut roomy, so I think most folks go true-to-size, and some brave souls size down. I wouldn’t even think of sizing down because of the thigh. That’s going to be your key measurement, as waist won’t tell you much. It just sits in a totally different place than jeans, so is hard to compare.

As always @sabergirl is dead right, @2d you wouldn’t want the waist of overalls to fit as they would on a pair of jeans because they are kept up my shoulder straps rather than grabbing your waist. I wear a 36 in the 634 and 888 cuts and have a 36 in the 805, it’s a reasonably relaxed fit without being too baggy, which is exactly what I want from them. I’d suggest if you wear a slimmer cut in jeans you’d want to size down :)
