Giles, I think this cut is the best I've seen on you. It looks better than the 1220 PI on you, which is strange since it should be the same cut, no? Probably just a manufacturing variation. In any case, I'd keep that very pair for yourself. Those are PERFECT!!! Or did you work out? Almost looks like it.

So these are selvedge and organic but not raw. Right?

Button fly?

Color is darker than what I thought. Also more blue/blackish. I was expecting a purple shade somehow. Any chance of a close-up pic that compares the three new models/shades?

I really like them a lot. Can't pull the trigger right now because of upcoming expenses but will keep them in mind for sure.

Thanks for posting the pics. I was waiting for those.

Till

Selvedge, One-wash - but you'd be hard pushed to notice that if you did not already know.

Button fly - nice copper coloured buttons...G

Yeah, I mentioned the attention to detail in the other thread. The pocket bags are nicely reinforced (as above). As G said, you would be hard pushed to recognise that that they are washed, they look very raw (N.B: I have the Permanent Indigio so the coating is helping with that I expect).

Very nice. Looks like the same amount of detail as in the 634SR I got, just  lighter weight and different cut, of course.

Man do I love that stitching! I am leaning towards a pair of these for their cut...

I really like the look of these.
I'm very new here, just got a pair of the double-knee loggers and the fit on them is brilliant.
Can anyone comment on the fit of the 1220NI?
Thanks.

Well - I got my neighbor into the same cut (but permanent indigo)

waist runs really true to tagged, might feel super tight the firts couple of days - but will stretch about an inch within 7 days..

he likes that they aren´t tapered too much - basically a true straight cut with slim thighs...he loves them

Pics are in the permanent thread

Right now I'm wearing the IH-803 and really liking the cut. I've been living in these since I got them. The low rise is very different to the rise on the '40s repros I've been wearing recently. Plus, I think I've got the Ironheart bug.
So, I'm thinking about the 1220NI because of the low rise but I'm also thinking about the 634S or maybe the 634SR.
Like  you say hectic, the 1220NI would be good for summer...yep...
