Hey Giles, I just need to make my final decision about the size for the 634S.

I own a pair of 555-01 tag size 32 and here are the - 4 months of wear - measurements:

Waist 17.5
Front rise 10.5
Rear rise 16
Thigh 12.25
Knee 8
Hem 7

I love the look of this mode (555)l but I do have a hard time for example, getting in the car or going up the stairs two steps at a time. My knees and thighs are a bit restricted.

I would like to order a pair of the 634S but I don’t want them to be too loose. Reading in some posts that they can stretch 2” at the waist, should I get 33?

Thanks

Much better to send specific questions like this into shop@ironheart.co.uk.  Then the customer service team can look after you properly. Measure specific jeans etc....

Also, I would seriously consider the 888 cut as a halfway between the slim taper of the 555 and the relaxed, straight cut of the 634.

Yep...agree. I usually do wear 634. I think there is a huge difference between 634 and 555. 634 is a true old school straight cut, no taper, 555 is a modern (very) slim cut. If you need more room around the tights but want a narrow hem I would give the 888 a try.

I dont have much more to add except I agree with these gents about the 888. I own 2 634 cuts and have owned a 555 cut and they are pretty much polar opposites. Both great in their own ways but going from one to the other is a huge jump. But....If you are looking for a straight leg than look no further than the 634. It’s a pretty great cut.

The 888 is pretty versatile in that you can change the look by how you size them. I went TTS and they are a slim but very comfortable pair but next time I want to size  down for a more modern look but with the 888 taper and rise v the 777.

Thanks everyone for your comments, I do want the 634S but I just don’t want to order the wrong size. I saw some post where some buyers wanted to go down a size because they were to big in the top block.

If I go with the 888 cut, I would be going to another slim cut and what I want is opposite to the 555 so I can have different cut for different situations.

Thanks

The 888 is not a slim cut. It is tapered but much wider in the leg than a 555

All jeans will stretch at the waist. Normally about 1”. The 21oz stretches quicker than most and sometimes more.

Measure a pair that you own, that fit well and are worn. Take that waist measurement subtract 1” -1.5”. The result is more or less the waist measurement of your new pair.

Potentially a crazy question, but has anyone ever had these chopped to shorts? If not, does anyone see any issues with shorts in this weight denim?

I’m sure folks have. Although it’s more often done with things like tje IH-816’s.

I see no problem at all, but I only wear shorts for swimming or otherwise near water, so may not be the best person to ask.

Cheers @neph93 - there's a pair in the outlet that are too short for me, and the shorts I wanted are out of stock in my size, so I started having ideas

Here’s a pic of them on. Sorry the most recent one I can find is at the pronto denim carnival..

Definitely no issues and very breathable given Thailand’s humid and hot weather. In fact, they are my go to shorts in the summer down under, which says a lot given our heat. Just a note that my pair were made as shorts and not cut from jeans.. I believe, since haraki made them for a summer event in japan.
