Super cool that these are coming back. I figured I'd get the most classic 555s next (indigo 21 oz), but I guess those will wait and I'll get UHR 555. With how long IH jeans last and other denims like 18 oz and XHSib catching my eye, I still haven't gotten around to getting that classic 21 oz in anything but black!

Definitely worth waiting for the UHR IMO. The 21oz is classic for a reason but the UHR's character and texture is unmatched, and I've found it to outlast the 21oz for durability as well. My first pair of indigo IH was the 634-UHR and they're still going strong 5+ years later with excellent fading/contrast and minimal wear/fraying.

I feel like both pair are worth owning. One would be more hardcore, and the other would be as soft and comfy as it gets. After spending many years in stuff that's heavy (oppressive) I am enjoying wearing the flagship 21oz (comfy) denim every day. I even sleep in them most days.

For a long time I have often pondered to myself what the softest denim out there is, and after trying out many other popular brands I am convinced that the IH 21oz denim is as soft as it gets (in terms of hand softness). It's just the right amount of heft and is crazy soft when it is broken in.
