Maybe I should wait for the 666S 21? Any advice welcome. Thanks.

The 777 does have a trimmer top block than the 555. I’m afraid the top block in the 666 is also quite close fitting. Maybe stick to the 555, and have a look at the 888?

Thanks. Meant to post this in the 555 01 thread, not this one. Sorry. Can you edit this? Guess measurements are the same, however.

Not quite. These start of life as the IH-555S-21 but they are garment dyed (dyed as finished garments). The overdying process is quite dramatic and shrinks a fabric that is otherwise very difficult to shrink. The OD versions of 21oz jeans are typically around 5% smaller than the indigo originals. They do stretch more readily however.

Is this the same OD as ISH-178? So it'd be a similar kind of fade?

Same OD but different denim,so you might get different results.

@Kingmob31  what @Jett129 said. When overdying IH take a finished garment and infuses it with black sulphur dye. The difference in base denim means there will be some difference in fading. For example the 19oz IH-526L-OD type III fades quickly from black to greyish white, because the original denim loses indigo in areas of high abrasion quite quickly. Both dyes come out together. The 21oz denim is a stubborn fader so while the black sulphur fades quickly more of the indigo is retained. The result is a blue/black effect before whiter areas start peaking through
